If you're struggling to wean yourself off leggings after a winter of working from home, Rihanna has a solution that you might find appealing. Keep your normal leggings for off-duty; and wear stirrup leggings for on.
For her latest maternity outfit, Rihanna wore a pair of high-waisted stirrup leggings from The Attico, which she styled with a criss-cross top that showed a strip of bump and spike-heeled stilettos.
As you can see, stirrup leggings have all the appeal of their non-stirruped cousins (the stretch waist, the soft touch, the leg-lengthening properties) but extra sharpness thanks to that tiny strip of fabric.
They also made their presence felt at Copenhagen Fashion Week - where street stylers, desperate to keep warm in near-freezing temperatures - styled theirs with statement jumpers masquerading as dresses. Of course, in order to show off that stirrup, you do need a bare ankle and, preferably, a high heel. If, however, that's entirely too ambitious then a pair of clogs - Penelope Chilvers makes our favourites - or chunky loafers will suffice.
