It's an absolute must for activewear brands to constantly change, reinvent, and reimagine trends to stay relevant. This is no more true than with printed leggings. The latest inception of this hot trend is to reimagine naturescapes, pop graphics, and photo realistic prints. This season brands like Terez, Onzie, and KiraGrace have upped the ante in the printed yoga pants game!
NYC based activewear company, Terez, makes high-performance activewear that keeps you cool and dry for your whole workout. This season they took photo realistic printed leggings to the next level with scenes of sunset beaches, fields of sunny sunflowers, and fruit striping! Their other venture into a tie-die pop graphic legging features flattering lines and cool retro inspired printed color blocking.
Whether you're 16 or 60 you're sure to notice how the fashions of previous generations quickly come back around to reinvent themselves as today's hottest trends. From Twiggy to Alicia Silverstone in Clueless the women who inspired artist and designers continue to inspire the creators and lovers of printed leggings.
Drawing inspiration from prints, fashion icons, pop culture, and iconic designs from over the decades, we've put together a lookbook of our favorite retro inspired printed leggings that will make you want to throwback your wardrobe and take a walk on the wild side!
1960's Inspired Printed Leggings:
Twiggy was the fashion icon of the 60's who inspired Andy Warhol and fashion designers of the day to make the big bold prints that galvanized the flower children of the decade to think for themselves. This was the end of conformity and beginning of self-expression! We think what better way to keep that trend alive than to rock some of these 60's mod inspired leggings! These leggings draw from the bright and bold art of the decade, and we think that is "outta sight"!!
We're super stoked to have a new collection of Zuvi on the site! Zuvi carries super cool printed leggings Inspired by art, nature, and culture! Their leggings are perfect for hot yoga, made in the USA, and use fabric made from recycled water bottles!
We know that sometimes printed leggings can be intimadating for those who cling tightly to their basic black leggings, but once you own a pair of patterned leggings it is hard to go back. These days it is hard to find a yoga class where you aren't seeing this patterned legging trend. With yoga becoming a huge staple of the american exercise diet, so it isn't surprising that like everywhere else in our lives we also seek to express our individuality in our activewear. The best part about this trend is the boost of self-confidence that comes with wearing what you like without seeking approval from anyone else. Living life on your own accord should be a daily practice, and this very much includes wearing that printed legging you love!!
Our Instagram community is a great place to see this in action, and so we've rounded up our favorite Instagram yogis to give you that extra boost of confidence to rock the socks off of this printed legging thing!
