Apparently, in October, Vogue ran a story that gave “practical advice on how to do as New Yorkers do — and dare to bare your legs this winter …” We’re not sure which NYC women they were talking about exactly, because as far as we understand this is a practice for crazy people. Now the U.K. version of Vogue is discussing how to transition this trend to winter, so you can stay bare-legged through February (we literally just got colder thinking about this). Their suggestions: cozy up with fur, look for skirts with longer hemlines, and lastly to “take tips from the seasoned experts in New York and in the North.” As to what these additional “tips” are, that’s left unanswered.
As you can probably guess, for us, this trend is met with a big, fat “why?” Barring super fancy events, we’d be reluctant to give up protection of the cold on any other day. What do you think of going tights-less in winter? A cool idea? Or an idea that’s literally too cool? [Vogue UK]
