We’re now fully accustomed to this never-ending whirlwind of fashion revivals (Timberland boots! Bumbags! Slogos!) but there’s a particular fashion item we didn’t see coming: stirrup leggings.
This revival is solely down to one experimental lady, Sarah Jessica Parker. Doing her very best Carrie-fication whilst on the promo tour for her SJP shoe launch in the US, these sheer stirrup tights have played an integral part in a series of kooky outfit choices. Well, they do highlight a shoe in a way we’ve never noticed before, so this may be a savvy choice from our favourite tutu-wearer.
But this may not be as wildcard a choice as you think: with ski-pants on the catwalks and the fact that Kim Kardashian won’t stop slipping into her Alaia leggings a bigger resurgence in the legwear department could be on horizon.
Not convinced? Grazia HQ certainly isn't, but with stirrup tights costing a mere £5.75 at Pamela Mann, one can perhaps afford to make a mini mistake this spring…
