This Controversial New Legging Trend Is Already Celebrity Approved

Truth be told, leggings in the spring and summer can be tricky. Your black and grey ones have probably been glued to your body for months now, and you're ready for a change. And while you likely don't want to give up leggings completely until autumn, thick, dark, constricting fabric against your skin doesn't really scream "fun in the sun." But trendsetting celeb-favourite activewear brand Alo (i.e., the creators of those moto leggings that are always everywhere) may have just presented a solution.

Alo, beloved by legging-obsessed celebs like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Lily Collins and Kylie Jenner, just released its S/S 17 collection, and one thing is clear: They're heavily endorsing skin-coloured legging hues. We counted five pairs in the Gravel hue, which we first spotted on Bella Hadid last summer. The brand clearly saw a hit on their hands and created even more nude-coloured leggings, tops and sports bras for this summer. While the look, which can almost appear as if you're wearing nothing from far away, isn't for the faint of heart, we're guessing directional celebs will continue to embrace the alluring trend now that Alo is fully supporting it.
