While I hadn’t worn mine for a couple of years until recently, I’ve started falling back in love with leggings again recently, mainly because of the multitude of ways you can now wear them.

While plain black leggings are always an simple and easy piece to wear, there are now a huge variety of styles, including knitted, split hem and printed pairs, so literally everyone can get involved no matter what your style or size.

Did I also mention just how comfy they are? I’m preparing to live in mine if we do go into another lockdown.

I sought some style inspiration from my favourite influencers to show you the ways to wear them this year.
