I write a leggings story every week—sometimes a handful of them! The frequency made me wonder: Am I obsessed, or is everyone else obsessed? The answer, reassuringly, is both. Four of the five most clicked-on style stories on Well+Good in 2017 dealt with the stretchy pant. (The other top story? Well, chic black swimsuits are always in style).

In 2018, the leggings obsession will focus on comfort, glitter, and much more (I predict velvet will continue its ascent) while fashion will likely continue to move deeper into the realm of nostalgia (hello, chunky sneakers, scrunchies, and Lisa Frank).

But for now, revisit—or relive—some of the top trends of 2017.

Scroll through the top fitness fashion moments of 2017 below.

You can never have enough leggings, which seems especially true when it comes to the versatile black edition. These LBLs (little black leggings) on sale at the often-pricey Bandier were a mega hit.
