While you might have a LBD you swear by for last-minute fancy occasions, what about some LBL — little black leggings — for your date nights with Netflix? In recent years, leggings have become an essential wardrobe staple, as trends in athleisure have supercharged the market.
Ideal for trans-Atlantic overnight flights, blowing off steam in your favorite boxing class, or pairing with a smart blazer and heels for a networking event, simple, sleek and well-fitting leggings are multipurpose.
