Leggings are a wardrobe staple we’re not sure we could ever live without. Lounging or heading to a workout class, there’s really nothing else that comes close to them in terms of comfort and versatility—possibly until now. It’s not that they’re going anywhere, but there’s a new athleisure trend emerging that may jeopardize leggings’ long-standing reign: activewear bodysuits.
If the thought of wearing a bodysuit (and nothing layered over it) scares you, you’re not alone—it’s a rather divisive trend, to say the least. But sure enough, the celebrity crowd has already taken to wearing bodysuits in place of their leggings. We recently spotted Jennifer Lopez and Alessandra Ambrosio, two celebs who are seemingly always en route to the gym and clad in leggings, testing out the trend. They both opted for Beyond Yoga’s Elevation Capri Bodysuit ($148), a black capri-length one-piece with a halter tank-style top.
We’re well aware that the bodysuit trend is even more polarizing than leggings, but we also want to point out that it doesn’t have to be as scary to wear as you’d think. Just add a pair of sneakers or slide sandals and maybe a sweatshirt tied around your waist, and you have yourself a winning athleisure outfit. Shop the bodysuits that are coming for your legging collection below, and see how J.Lo and Alessandra Ambrosio are wearing them as of late.
