Leggings fit like a second skin and everyone who has worn them once never wants to banish them from their wardrobe again. Besides the comfort factor, they are also incredibly versatile to combine.
How leggings change women and spice up your style
The plain black leggings for women belong in every wardrobe as a basic piece. If you've overslept and are pressed for time, you can quickly slip into a pair of leggings and combine them with an eye-catching shirt, blouse or matching jumper to create a casual look for any occasion. If you prefer something more eye-catching, you'll be spoilt for choice. There are leggings with a suede look, a stone-washed design or a sophisticated metallic look. Leggings for women in a mix of materials are even more sophisticated: here, for example, cotton is combined with mesh inserts or lace for a figure-hugging outfit. Or how about leggings with cut-outs? The selection of women's leggings with motifs is particularly large. There really are no limits to your imagination here.
Besides standard shapes like stars, stripes or flowers, you'll surely go into raptures easily at the sight of skulls or skeletons. For all those who like to express their humour openly to the world, there is something to be found in comic motifs such as Batman, the Minions or motifs from the realm of fantasy such as the Cheshire Cat from "Alice in Wonderland". By the way, leggings are the perfect festival wear. Thanks to the elastic material, leggings are extremely comfortable to wear, so standing and waiting for long periods of time, jumping up and down for hours or being in a tent are no longer a problem. With images of Iron Maiden, AC/DC or Guns N' Roses on your women's leggings, you'll be rocking right at the front.
Sexy leggings - leggings with a difference
Leggings are simple garments without a lot of frills. A few clever details, however, ensure that even leggings become a fashion highlight. The bootcut leggings from Gothicana by EMP, for example, combine the comfort of leggings with the style of the jeans of the same name. Or how about leggings with a sewn-on skirt? There are even extravagant leggings with lacing and metal eyelets. You can stay true to your style or even take it to a whole new level. Take a look at our wide range of leggings in the EMP online shop and buy your new favourite trousers online. Order with just a few clicks and try them on at home. What more could you want?
Which ladies' leggings suit you best?
Which leggings suit you best depends on different factors. The best fit is just above the ankle. If you want to wear shorter leggings, you can combine them with longer tops. If you are short, you can also wear high heels with your leggings to make them look taller.
If you wear leggings with an eye-catching pattern, your top should be rather plain. If you're wearing an eye-catching top, go for plain leggings.
Black or dark leggings will make your legs look slimmer. Patterns, horizontal stripes and bright colours, as well as leggings with a wet look, a wool look or sequins, are more noticeable.
What do you do to prevent leggings from slipping?
Simply put: Buy your leggings in the right size. Sounds trivial, but it's the first step to getting a pair of trousers that fit. Or try high-waisted models. Leggings made of cotton wear out more quickly and therefore slip down more quickly.
Which leggings are best?
That depends on you. Do you want opaque leggings, colourful leggings or sports leggings that you can also wear to yoga or hiking? Are they for everyday wear or leisure? And most importantly, what do you like?
Leggings can be made of lycra, nylon, cotton, faux leather or denim. A high elastane content ensures stretchiness.
Leggings come in short capri or 3/4 length versions that end just below the knee and look great with oversized tops. Shaping leggings are made of shaping material and are perfect for under dresses or skirts. Leather leggings, made either entirely or partially of leather, are the perfect party companion and are guaranteed to turn heads.
Unfortunately, your leggings will lose their shape over time. High-quality models keep their shape longer.
What's most important is the comfort, design and details of your leggings. Are they comfortable? Do they have a pattern that you really like? Or are they lace leggings, sexy leggings or do they have cool rivets on the side seam? The rule of thumb is: the best leggings are the ones that you like.
Which brand has good, opaque leggings?
You can find particularly good opaque leggings from Adidas and Urban Classic, for example. We also have these brands here in the EMP Online Shop. So take your time and look around. Maybe you'll discover some other great styles that are a must-have for your wardrobe.
