LUXURY LEGGINGS: FITNESS OR FASHION?

LUXURY LEGGINGS: FITNESS OR FASHION?

mcqueen leggingsComfortable, chic and stylish, leggings started as a key basic in the crossover sport-street fashion category trend. But now that athleisure has become a lifestyle choice and designer sneakers seem to have maxed out, we have a spate of designer leggings on the market.

Vividly printed Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Brunello Cucinelli are all at estimated retail prices between $1,150-$1,385. Paco Rabanne, Donna Karan and Lucas High sell leggings from an estimated $400-$500. Donna even has cashmere leggings.

Priced at this level, Lululemon’s $100 yoga pants seem like a bargain. One thing is for sure: one has to be fit to wear them.
