I Tried the New Legging Trend From JoyLab at Target

Whether I’m heading off to a yoga class, hiking along one of L.A.’s many trails, or running errands in the weekends, you can always catch me in leggings. But unlike my willingness to try out loud prints and color in my everyday attire, my choice in leggings is unwavering in its theme: solid-colored black.

For whatever reason, printed leggings have intimidated me so much so that I’ve placed a ban on them in my own closet. At least, that is, until now. JoyLab, the line of activewear we design for Target, released a special capsule of leafy tropical prints in their most recent drop and I went way outside my comfort zone to test drive the fun new pieces. Like I noted above, I usually lament any leggings that don’t fall in line with my strict edit of solid black, so the idea of wearing colorful printed leggings left me pretty much terrified.

Nonetheless, I decided to put the High-Rise 7/8 Reversible Legging from the collection to the test and see what happened. Would I end up loathing it, or be inspired to add more colors and prints to my athleisure ensembles in the future?
