The Anti-Legging Trend I Can Only Really Describe as Wild

It seems like there's a new loungewear trend cropping up every day. Whether it's a pair of cosy joggers or the newest legging trend there are plenty of trends that appeal to everyone. Well, we're about to add yet another athleisure trend to your radar. Yoga unitards, activewear bodysuits, leotards—whatever you want to call them—they're here and they're happening. These one-pieces are like your favourite pair of leggings but taken to the next level for one head-to-toe spandex outfit that I can only really describe as, well, wild.

We first covered the trend when we saw celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Alessandra Ambrosio replacing their leggings with bodysuits last year, both going with a black capri-length version from Beyond Yoga. Since then, more fashion girls have followed suit with pretty bodysuits from indie labels like Ernest Leoty, Tank Air and Gil Rodriguez that veer more into the fashion category than activewear. You just might wear one with knee boots and a chain belt à la Emily Ratajkowski.

But hey, if the thought of wearing a bodysuit (and nothing layered over it) scares you, you're not alone. It's a rather divisive trend, to say the least. We're well aware that the bodysuit trend is a polarising one, but we also want to point out that it doesn't have to be as scary to wear as you'd think. 

Just add a pair of sneakers and a sweatshirt tied around your waist, and you have yourself a winning athleisure outfit you can leave the house in and feel pretty damn comfy wearing.

Ahead, shop the bodysuits that are coming for your legging collection…

If you're going to invest, this beautiful spaghetti strap bodysuit is 100% the way to go.

Take all the effort out of putting together a workout outfit.

This emerging label has quickly become one of my favorites.

Make Gil Rodriguez your source for elevated, '90s-inspired basics.

This trend is already quite out there, so why not go the whole way with a wild print?

Fancy something that feels sportier? This is a good option.
