TELL US SOMETHING WE DON'T KNOW: LEGGINGS ARE A BOOMING TREND


i love leather leggins! and so do women in paris. how chic. (wwd.com)

paris - a few months ago i spent several hundred dollars on leggings from american apparel (very poor quality by the way!). i bought sparkly ones, cotton ones, spandex ones, and denim ones. i went buck wild! boy was i smart. as it turns out, leggings are all the rage, as confirmed by womens wear daily on today's front page of the paper. leading the trend are tight leather leggins which were apparently all the rage in paris during the shows. above are photos from womens wear daily's spread, prominently featuring the leather tights. personally, i love it! what about you?

I have to disagree with the anonymous person who commented before me. I LOVE LEGGINGS! Especially the leather ones in the post. they're just so versatile and they allow you to wear skirts & dresses in the winter while they allow you to wear too short skirts& dresses in the summer without making you look too scantily dressed. Shame about the poor quality of leggings from aa though. I mean they have the best selection of colors.

i love my black eel leggings from AA i want to wear them with everything! but force myself not to so i don't rinse them dry...
i hate leggings worn on under plain boring uninspiring dresses worn 'out on the town'... but leggings (esp. shiny/leather ones!) can look hot with the right attire.

They are probably the most sexy item around at the moment for women. As your pictures show, they can be worn in a very classy way. I am looking forward to this Autumn and hope they really catch on. They are the next logical step on from the skinny jeans trend and an excellent one at that.
