How to style shiny leggings

Thought leggings were just for working out? Not so. Shiny leggings will take you from brunch, to barre to bar effortlessly. For a casual daytime look, pair these head-turners with a crisp white tee and off-duty sneakers. From coffee with the girls to running errands round town, this combo will look effortlessly cool.

If you are going for that LA glam workout vibe, try a matching shiny sports bra, with a slicked back ponytail and some APL sneakers for the ultimate power woman look. Or how about pairing yours with an oversized shirt and some heels for a night out on the town? A simple, chic look that’s guaranteed to power up your dance moves.

Take on the shiny legging look and you’ll be up there with the most stylish of Hollywood stars. JLo is a huge fan of Koral and is frequently seen wearing hers to and from her booty-building workouts. Sarah Hylan nails that effortless active look in Ultracor, and Kim Kardashian-West regularly turns heads in her Koral shiny leggings paired with heels, a skinny low cut tee and an open shell jacket.

So get scrolling and find the perfect pair that will give you that iconic sports-glam look that Danny Zuko would be tripping over.
