I think it’s far to say that our lives are going back to normal. We’re going on more holidays than ever, we’re spending all the time we can with our loved ones and we’re enjoying fashion again.
One thing that hasn’t gone far though? Loungewear – but not as you know it. Legging shorts are fast becoming a style staple in everyone’s wardrobes, and if you haven’t got a pair already, you’re very probably missing out.
Legging shorts – also known as cycling or biker shorts – are über comfy. They’re not half as scary as you once thought, particularly when teamed with long shirts, oversized tees and sweatshirts, a la Lady Di.
Of course, you don’t have to cover up. You can also follow in Lizzo and Kendall Jenner’s footsteps and wear a crop top – a tempting option when the weather’s warm.
Even if you’re not keen on wearing them for fashion purposes, give them a go for working out. There’s nothing comfier, if you ask me.
