Calvin Klein Gets In On The Leggings Game A Little Too Late?
Come fall, Calvin Klein Legwear will launch Ultra Fit, a line of control tights and leggings. The opaque jersey tights and leggings will have a a ribbed control top, flat seams, and a comfortable, wide waistband that stays flat against the stomach. Ultra Fit is meant to give the wearer a sleek and clean appearance. Now you might be asking yourself: “Isn’t it a little late for Calvin Klein to get into the leggings game? Didn’t leggings hit the fashion graveyard?” I’ve only worn my leggings to the gym lately, but I think leggings like skinny jeans aren’t really going anywhere because too many people have collected several pairs over the years. It’s kind of hard to get folks out of their style uniform or fashion rut. Once Ultra Fit launches in better department stores like Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, and Bloomingdale’s, they’ll be on my shopping list. You just can’t beat those comfortably slimming features for only $14. Plus, I really like the idea of leggings peeking from under a vintage ladylike coat in red or camel, two main colors for coats this fall, worn with a pair of leopard-print pointy-toe kitten heels (a girl has a right to change her mind). Personal style after all is not about what’s in or out; it’s about making fashion choices that make you look and feel your best in your lifestyle. [Calvin Klein]
