This Unconventional Activewear Trend Is Celeb-Approved

Plus, shop pieces inspired by the look.

Black workout leggings are a go-to for most people — because you can wear them with literally anything. But, you’re probably aware that all-black everything can start to get a little boring.
So, if you’re looking to break out of your monochrome box, this seaon’s hottest (and slightly unconventional) activewear trend may be for you.
Nude seems to be the new neutral on the block, with tonal-coloured leggings, tanks, and sports bras popping up left, right and centre. The look, which can almost appear as if you’re wearing nothing from far away, isn’t for the faint of heart, but there’s no denying it’ll turn heads (and compliment a faux tan).

Celebrities love this trend mainly due to the shock factor. It gives the dramatic illusion that you’re not wearing anything.
It flatters the body, just like any good pair of quality leggings does, as it shows off and enhances the silhouette, especially in this lighter tone rather than the usual darker shades. – Naomi Isted, editor in chief at Ultimate Lifestylist, told FEMAIL.

Whether you’re a fan of or not, this trend doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
