Are leggings still in style in 2022?

It’s safe to say that leggings are here to stay. 

2021 opened the door for more colourful and bold looks, and we’re definitely going to be seeing more vibrant and more striking styles next year. 

We’ve now gone past the debate on whether leggings can be considered pants and are fully adopting them as staples in our wardrobes, thanks in part to celebrities (Beyonce and Kylie Jenner, amongst others) and influencers.
