Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

International Legging Day - October 18


Get geared up for International Legging Day every October 18th. Although it’s a year-round staple, when temps drop in the fall, it’s officially legging season!

Once a necessity that provided an added layer of warmth, the legging is now an iconic style that combines comfort and fashion. Leggings truly became popular in the 1950s and ‘60s as a standard wardrobe piece and workout essential.

Over time, breathable materials, textures, designs, and prints ushered in the undeniable era of leggings. Now, modern-day leggings are feats of engineering designed to enhance your workout. While they continue to be a gym essential, legging styles are now so versatile that they’re widely acceptable to wear as pants. In a wide range of looks, comfortable leggings offer something for everyone.

As the popularity of athleisure skyrockets, so too does the mass appeal of the legging. Clearly, this comfortable, curve-hugging style hasn’t just revolutionized what we wear to the gym—it’s revolutionized what we wear everywhere! The versatile legging has sparked a global revolution that encourages women to embrace comfort and stay active.


Put your best legging forward! Proudly wear your favorite pair and go shopping for more. Consider this your chance to break the dress code—whether it’s at the office or that five-star restaurant you’re dining at tonight. After all, feeling comfortable is what the day’s really all about. Share your favorite looks and styles by using #LeggingDay on social media on October 18th.
