A look at $900 leggings — and the women who buy them

This spring, singer Iggy Azalea showed up to a star-studded music awards show in her paparazzi finest: sky-high heels, a sexy mesh top and a pair of zebra-striped leggings. That’s right. The 24-year-old rapper rocked workout pants. At night. In public. On the red carpet.

While it may seem like a fashion risk, Azalea is one of countless celebrities and NYC women ditching jeans for high-tech, crazily printed — and often crazily priced — leggings.

While high-end leggings have been on the rise in recent years thanks to popular $100 Lululemon yoga pants, now Lycra is coming out of the locker room and into the spotlight. Women want stretchy looks that work for spin class or a Saturday night out — and they’re willing to pay big money.

Luxury sites like Net-a-Sporter and new dedicated boutiques like Bandier in the Flatiron District hawk “couture” leggings that can cost upward of $400 and are printed with everything from kale motifs to emojis. According to the NPD Group, a consumer tracking service, leggings are becoming such a force that women’s jeans sales dropped 8 percent in 2014. Even high-end designers like Fendi are jumping on the stationary bike, selling $900 leggings to the fit and fabulous.

“I don’t think there’s ever too much to spend [on leggings],” says Jennifer Bandier, founder of the 5-month-old eponymous shop.

Är beredd att betala upp till $200 för ett par leggings
Kaku Kumagai, a 27-year-old from Japan who is studying dance in Manhattan, says the colorful-legging trend is also popular in her home country. “The best part of being in New York is going back home with all my new leggings with the different designs. There is a good chance that I will be the only one who has them,” says Kumagai, who sports a $28 pair from Monki, but says she’s willing to spend up to $200.
