Yoga Unitards Are the Surprising New Anti-Legging Trend
It can’t just be me. It seems like there’s a new loungewear trend cropping up every day. Whether it’s a pair of cozy joggers or the newest legging trend you don’t have an excuse not to embrace these days. 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 favorite pair of leggings but taken to the next level for one head-to-toe spandex outfit that I can only really describe as wild.
We first covered the trend when we saw celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Alessandra Ambrosio replacing their leggings with bodysuits, 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. And, yes, her brand Inamorata carries a few of these fashion-y bodysuits.
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 polarizing 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.
Ahead, shop the bodysuits that are coming for your legging collection, and see how fashion girls are wearing them as of late.
