leggings get the designer treatment for spring

-------

Do you enjoy the same things as Lindsay Lohan? By which we mean, do you share the actress’ scandalous taste for leggings? If so, you’re in luck (click for slideshow). The familiar silhouette was reinvented on the Spring runways in cutout patterns at A.F. Vandevorst and Rodarte, and in a flurry of slashes at Meadham Kirchhoff and Rad Hourani. Other designers went print-mad, with bold stripes, graphic patterns, and painterly florals all making appearances. “Leggings have gone to another level; they’re not just for casual wear,” said Adi Gil of Threeasfour. “We’ve used prints that will encourage the wearer’s self-confidence and consciousness of her body.” In other words, these statement-makers require a starlet’s fearlessness. Here’s the evidence.

    I think people need to get out out of their shell, and have fun with fashion because it should never be taken too seriously. I absolutely love the pattern leggings and when done right it can make any outfit extremely interesting!!

    These are not just the average leggings…. If these outfits did not have these colorful printed leggings then these outfits would not be half as amazing without them, think about it?? It completes the look and its NEW they do not even give the same affect that normal solid color leggings do.

    Leggings went out because they went dull. They came back with a bright, fresh and new look, so I think they’ll stay around. Of course I don’t think they are for all body types…of course they are soooo comfortable, so I say wear if you can add a little funk and a dash of surprise to make your own signature look with these seasons leggings. :o)
