There are very few clothes that we BA50’s can wear that our kids wear. One category is leggings. Apres workout wear is no more than throwing on a fresh top and a great pair of boots over our leggings after a gym, spin or barre class.

But, lately I’ve been seeing leggings that look like artwork — that go beyond your basic black or non-descript spandax work out wear. Leggings that deserve to go our after class.

It all started at Starbucks when I was having coffee after spin class with my friend Joanne. A woman walked in wearing leggings that had a fabulous print on them. I asked her if I could take a picture of her legs (I know a bit weird). She was awesome and gave me so much information on the leggings and other great places to check out.

So — this is how I became a legging stalker.

The leggings I found look like free styling tights – straight out of California–  youthful but sophisticated all at once.

Check out these great companies that have very arty cool leggings.

These definitely STRETCH you a bit – don’t you think – way beyond the familiar Athleta and Lulu look. Which ones do you like?

From Werkshop I love these black and white leggings. Plus these are full length for long legged women. I’m always on the lookout for coverage to my ankles and these fit the bill.

And how about this crane design. It definitely looks like a leg tattoo — very cool.

Check out this company Kira Grace and enjoy reading the back story on the designs. These particular tights are made from a prayer flag photograph. I think they are works of art for your legs.

And if you wear ripped jeans — you may love these — sexy don’t you think?

How about a pair of REVERSABLE yoga leggings. Brilliant! That’s the first I’ve heard. I love the subtle color gradation as you move down the leg — very elegant and less bold.

And the most reasonably priced website of this bunch is Onzie. I love these flair pants — Please please tell me bellbottom yoga pants are coming back in style. If you have hips – this is really flattering. These come in many colors.
