Trends come and go—or at least, most of them do. However, what about the ones that are good enough to last long beyond the catwalks? It's these pieces that transcend seasons, becoming staple pieces that we'll reach for time and time again.
Enter, split-hem leggings. First championed by Victoria Beckham in her S/S20 runway show and worn by influencers, celebs and editors every month of the year since, they are now an iconic wardrobe staple that we have come to rely on.
Not convinced? Don't just take it from us. Everyone from Rosie Huntington- Whiteley to the fashion It crowd are turning to their split-front leggings again this winter. It may or may not be because we've learnt to truly appreciate a great legging outfit in recent years, but it also might have something to do with the fact that they're surprisingly versatile. Split-hem leggings or trousers elevate an outfit while still being just as comfy to wear as your standard yoga pants. They work well with trainers for running errands and your highest heels on a night out, and they're the perfect partner for trusty trench coats and blazers in autumn.
Put it this way: If you're looking for the ultimate "popping to the pub" or "heading for dinner with friends" outfit this is your warning not to overlook split-hem leggings.
