Uk’s # 1 Trousers

Be­cause comfy just got chic. And yes, we just said that

Look (UK) - - FRONT PAGE -

Re­mem­ber when get­ting ready sim­ply in­volved a pair of leg­gings, a Spice Girls tee and a scrunchie? Oh, to be seven again. Now that we have real jobs and adult re­spon­si­bil­i­ties (sob), we’re sup­posed to look pol­ished, put-to­gether and not like we’ve rolled out of bed 15 min­utes pre­vi­ously. But what if dress­ing could be like that all over again?

Once only ac­cept­able for ex­er­cis­ing and er­rands, thanks to the ath­leisure trend and its su­per-fa­mous cham­pi­ons (Gigi and Ken­dall, we’re look­ing at you), leg­gings have never been more pop­u­lar. We’ve even got the stats to prove it. A new re­port found that leg­gings have over­taken jeans as the most bought trouser style on­line, with sales up a whop­ping 41 per cent in the last year! And, quite frankly, hal­lelu­jah for that. Noth­ing makes us hap­pier than clothes that pass as chic yet are also un­be­liev­ably comfy.

Un­for­tu­nately, the ho­ley num­bers you bought back in 2007 aren’t go­ing to cut it, but Zara’s new crop of luxe leg­gings plus elas­ti­cated waist­bands cer­tainly will. The high street hotspot has re­ally come up trumps with its of­fer­ing – they’re also a lot more com­fort­able than shop­ping for ma­ter­nity trews when you’re not ex­pect­ing.

Flat­ter­ing and fully opaque, they’ll go with ev­ery­thing you own. Avail­able in clas­sic black and navy as well as leather-look fin­ishes and metal­lic sheens, we’ll be pair­ing ours with an over­sized shirt and block heels for the of­fice, and an off-the-shoul­der num­ber and an­kle boots for nights out.

The best part? That elas­ti­cated waist­band. After all, au­tumn should be about de­vour­ing roast din­ners, crum­bles drowned in cream and cheese boards big­ger than our heads. Such pur­suits are no fun in a pair of skin­nies. And for that rea­son alone, leg­gings, we salute you.

They’ve over­taken jeans as the #1 trouser style
