Sometimes you wake up and know instantly that it’s a “leggings day.” Alhough they are not flattering to everyone, leggings are definitely the most comfortable pant. They are also perhaps the most controversial, inspiring a “what exactly constitutes pants?” debate. Celebrities seem to be having “leggings days” more and more often, but their stylish slacks are less boring than the sea of black spandex you’d expect. These celebs show us how to, for better or for worse, keep leggings fresh with zany prints and cuts.
