There are no strict rules when it comes to wearing of 80s leggings and footless tights. However, popular designs in the decade included neon, pastel shades, geometric prints, animal print, shiny (metallic look), paint splatter and lace tights (the latter being made popular by Madonna).
Women were keen to embrace this comfortable yet stylish alternative to jeans and trousers. What started as a practical athletic garment soon evolved into a fashion statement that defined the decade, and the term “athleisure” was born.
This trend was heavily influenced by the growing fitness craze of the 80s, with celebrities like Jane Fonda and Olivia Newton-John popularising workout wear.
Leggings, stirrup pants and footless tights were often paired with oversized, off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, and were also worn with leg warmers, leotards and headbands for 80s aerobics, workout and dance. A pair of simple plain black leggings with bright neon leg warmers can create a striking look.
Leggings have become a staple in modern wardrobes, with variations like yoga pants and jeggings carrying on the legacy of 1980s fashion.
