All a sudden, glitter, glossy and shiny leggings has become one of the most trendy design elements. Nearly all leading athleisure brands sell such Christmassy leggings this year, including Athleta, Beyond Yoga, Lululemon, etc. It is tempting to steal few pairs for myself.
Here I list five of my personal favorites. Some of them are in my shopping cart, while others are already in my closet, the Yogini's Closet.
Luminosity Foil Print Black Silver
It was a surprise, good surprise, to me when seeing Lululemon released this legging. It doesn't strike me as the style from Lululemon. The legging is made with Full-On Luxtreme fabric, which works great for yoga and high impact workouts. Believe or not, this legging is so popular that most of sizes have sold out online within days. Lucky enough, I was able to grab one from the local store. That means, the review will be coming soon. The legging is prettier and not as silvery in person. It has perfect amount of the sparkle on it.
This legging comes with two colors, Black-White Rose Gold Speckle and Black Foil Speckle. I am quite excited about the Black-White Rose Gold Speckle (top left picture). The color combination is unique and lovely. This legging is so popular that it's pretty much sold out everywhere. Revolve is the only store I am able to find that has it available for pre-order. If you have read my previous review, I have mixed feelings about Beyond Yoga because of their inconsistent sizing. Since it's almost sold out, I may have to pull the trigger soon.
12/17 Update: Carbon38 has this legging in stock for all sizes. You can use code "JUMPSTART25" for 25% off.
Black Foil Splatter
Glyer High Power Legging Print is another shimmering legging that caught my attention. It gives a faux leather finish, similar to HPE Moto Legging in Bronze. This legging is made with Glyder FORMAFLEX (polyester + nylon) fabric, different to FORMA101 (spandex + nylon) used on Vital Tight and Mantra Crop. Unfortunately, I don't have experience with FORMAFLEX, I can't comment on its performance. That said, this legging is very popular too. Most sizes have sold out.
Ever since I tried Alala Niche Tight (review will come soon), I fall in love with seamless leggings. When I saw Phat Buddha Jane Glitter Workout Capri, I knew that I had to get it. I am drawn by its simple design yet flashy color. I ordered Peacoat color and it's on the way. Since I am new to Phat Buddha, I don't know how it fit and performs. I do have high hope on it.
Rose Gold Splatter Foil
Terez Splatter Printed Tall Band Legging is another popular one. Again, it's pretty much sold out everywhere. The black background with rose gold splatter makes the legging pop and the color palette fits right into the holiday season. I've tried Terez legging in the past. I like the fabric and fit on me; however, I don't particularly like the style of their waistband. The encased wide elastic band doesn't work for me. That said, Terez is well known for its high quality and unique design.
Other than what I mentioned above, there are many other brands carry shiny, shimming, glitter, glossy type of leggings this year which I can't list all of them here. Which is your favorite?
