No, you haven’t entered a time machine and found yourself back in 2008; leggings are back on the agenda in 2022.

This is evident when it comes to leggings. While they’re usually worn for workouts and relaxing around the house, now they’re finding their ways into our daily wardrobes with modern details like split hems, flares, prints and even buttons.

There’s no denying that this trend making a comeback has something to do with the re-emergence of 90s and Y2K fashion, but before you panic, I promise you don’t need to wear crop tops with these.
