Whether they're doubling as tights or making an impact through print and colour, leggings are an essential way to showcase loose-fit tops and get our proportions exactly right.

Update your comfiest staples with the latest leggings

The versatility of leggings knows no bounds, and this season sees them extending their reign from casual and sporty to statement designs which channel streetwear, athleisure and hipster trends. Women's leggings are a great alternative to skinny jeans when we want to work a billowing tunic, an oversized denim shirt or a boyfriend-fit sweater. This season we're on the lookout for flashes of metallics, edgy leather options and art-deco patterns from this leggings edit, as well as comfortable cropped fits for our workout days.

Work the oversized top trend with leggings

Start with the basics and go for a range of leggings in simple black, navy or brown and finish with a pair of ballerinas in contrasting colours. Choose leather-look leggings and team with a pair of knee-high-boots, a fur gilet and a slouchy beanie hat for an autumnal outfit that nails this season's texture obsession. Leggings are also a great way to experiment with pattern and print - try geometric stripes, polka dots, animal print and even slogans running down the leg to individualise the look.

Leggings - the most versatile garments you can offer your wardrobe.

Leggings are thought to have first been invented around the 13th century. At this time, they were made of supple tanned leather, and tended to be worn only by men. Throughout the ages, they remained still firmly in fashion, both due to their practicality and to their simple look. Cowboys cut a fine dash in rawhide leggings, for instance, many centuries later. Nowadays, there are so many different styles of leggings for women available, and you will find a great mix of them here at Zalando.
