Ok, so I might be comitting fashion suicide here, but.... I kinda like the leggings trend. NOT ankle-length leggings, that looks wierd to me, but I really like the look of pants cropped just below the knee, which includes leggings. I don't know, maybe it's just the funky 80's vibe of it all. Take Lindsay, below. I know most fashion blogs blasted her for these outfits... but I think they're kinda cute. I love the cropped leggings paired with peep-toe heels. I think these tend to look best worn under a skirt or dress.
These, however, are a no-go in my book:
Cropped leggings, for some reason, like kinda cute. Full-length leggings that hit at the ankle... not cute. Check out Alessandra Ambrosio (bottom picture)-- she's a beautiful woman, a tad bit skinny perhaps... but those leggings make it look like she has chicken legs (and I have no clue what's going on with that skirt....). Full-length leggings are like skinny pants-- they're not meant to be worn by anyone with curves, and on someone who has none it only accentuates how incredibly skinny they are (in a not-good way).
However, they're still not as bad as THIS:
That's right. Victoria's Secret is bringing stirrups back this fall, calling them the seaon's "must have layer."
Does anyone even remember anyone ever looking good in these?
