Kim Kardashian Just Gave Leggings An Elegant Upgrade

Kim Kardashian has a few firm favourites in that bursting wardrobe of hers – designer leggings are one of them.

When we first saw the 34-year-old rocking skintight pedal pushers last year, we weren’t sure. Hello, ’90s trend we hoped would never come back.

But then she went and rocked a pair at Paris Fashion Week with a nude Margiela bodysuit and an embellished Balmain jacket, and we started to come round…

And then again to Kourtney Kardashian ‘s baby shower (this time, in black), with a sleek black blazer – and suddenly we were on board with surprisingly stylish Kim’s comeback trend.

Kim’s favourite pair are from Azzedine Alaia – mid rise, no pockets, no appliqués, jersey, stretch.

A far cry from our £9.99 versions we used to wear to death until they faded in the wash, these designer beauties are actually mega flattering and elegant enough for eveningwear. Just look to Kim for proof…

But they’re also just great for lounging.

Last night, Kim hit up a private screening of the new Hunger Games film, Mockingjay: Part 1 in Melbourne, looking super cosy but still stylish in a roll-neck sweater, blush pink cropped leggings and strappy heels.

In the caption of her Instagram snap of her and her pals sitting in their plush cinema seats, she wrote: ‘You guys are gonna die!!!!!!! Mocking Jay was soooooooo good!!!!!!!!!’

What do we think? Will high-fashion leggings take off? Or will it be another one of those things that only a Kardashian can pull off…
