Let's face it: Slipping into non-stretch denim isn't always the most comfortable outfit option, especially during the colder months. But is finding a happy medium between comfort and style a feasible task? Thanks to Gigi Hadid's black leggings, activewear enthusiasts can officially snag a pair of stretchy pants that will reach far past a group exercise class.
The older Hadid sister was photographed arriving to the Milan airport on Feb. 18 in preparation for yet another busy week of fashion month. Combining elements of retro style, luxury, and of course, comfort, Hadid donned a look that was equal parts on-trend and practical for international travel.
The model layered a graphic t-shirt under an oversized black blazer with '80s-inspired shoulder pads, sharp-looking lapels, and a two-button closure. Rather than dressing up the look with a pair of pleated trousers or wide-leg pants, the always cutting-edge style authority sported leather-infused moto leggings by Alo. A subtly elevated piece of activewear, these leggings feature textured, faux-leather panels, a mid-rise waist, and a full-length hem.
She completed the casually polished outfit with the addition of narrow-framed sunglasses, classic combat boots by Dr. Marten, and a large, beige tote. Hadid pulled her hair back into a high bun, leaving out a few face-framing pieces to add dimension to the look.
While you may have a stockpile of (very necessary) black leggings in the workout section of your closet, Hadid's upgraded pair can be worn beyond the gym. The glossy finish and unique pattern make these leggings the ultimate alternative to your go-to pair of jeans.
Style them like the 23-year-old model by wearing a printed tee, a boxy blazer, and stompy boots, or opt for an even cozier look by pairing them with an oversized knit, a wool coat, and high-top sneakers.
