Crave: Gap Striped Lounge Leggings

We love shopping for “lounge clothes” — you know, the duds you throw on the second you walk in your pad after a long day at work. Lounge clothes are different than pajamas because, in theory, you could go outside in them and not look like you just busted out of a mental institution. These…

Should Cage Leggings Be Sent To Fashion Prison?

Every time I think we’ve seen it all in terms of edgy leggings and hosiery, some designer proves me wrong. Behold caged leggings! Michelle at Kingdom of Style tested out James Lillis’ design and looks pretty rad, but something tells me walking in these bad boys is kind of awkward, especially if your thighs (normally)…

Are Baggy, Footless Tights In Your Fashion Future?

I’m all for most hosiery trends, whether it be two-toned, crazy-patterned, or studded leg wear. And I’ve never been an opponent of “tights as pants,” as long as it’s done tastefully. But I have to admit that I don’t know what to make of Wolford‘s Voile leggings/footless tights.

Is The New Knee Pad Trend For You?

Trend de la Creme reports: “It’s Official: Knee-Centric Leggings Are a Trend.” Lindsay Lohan created a pair last year, and now they’re everywhere, from Ann-Sofie Back to Marc Jacobs to Henrik Vibskov. So, what’s the reason? Why would girls want to wear knee pads? It’s hard not to think of one thing. For, you know,…

Crave: Pharmous Gold Mosaic Leggings

These leggings are kind of making us wish for winter. Imagine them with black motorcycle boots and a slouchy, dark T-shirt dress and you’ll be imagining our uniform once the cold comes ’round. We’ve seen gold leggings before, but we’ve never seen them done this well with so much detail. These are not your standard

David Lerner’s Leggings Aren’t For Me, But May Be For You

I often find myself judging the quality of an outfit in relation to whether or not I would wear the outfit. And since I have a simple traditional taste, I rule out a lot of great fashion-forward looks. For example: the revival of the 70s and 80s legging-as-pants look. For those of you with the…

Tights Are NOT Pants

Some geniuses had the great idea to start a website called Tights Are Not Pants. Why? They’re “tired of tolerating attempts to force tights into a non-native garment category and have decided to do something about it.” Downloadable flyers read: “Tell Your Douche Friends: TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS,” “do unto others: tights are not pants,”…

Quick Pic: Whitney Port Loves Her Some Jeggings

Whitney Port is the bravest girl we know. She is the first person we’ve seen try the jean-legging combo. While she’s thin enough that they don’t look bad, we wonder if they’re cutting off her circulation. [LA, 5/19/09]…

Jeans And Leggings Shouldn’t Be Combined Into One Product

We’re kind of split down the middle when it comes to leggings. Simcha and I love them, and Amelia and Catherine wouldn’t be caught dead in them. But when we saw this leggings-jeans combo from Lee, we all gave a resounding: “Hell, no.” How the Australian division of Lee Jeans describes the Licks line:…

If Tights Aren’t Constrictive Enough For You, Put Your Legs In Cages

As more celebrities say “no” to pants, tights and leggings have become stand-alone articles of clothing. Now, they’re getting accessorized. A couple months ago, we checked out some cool chain-mail stockings, but they appeared to be possibly dangerous. Australian designer James Lillis, who makes the craziest, fanciest tights we’ve ever seen, has come up with…

Crave: Hard Tail Zip Leggings

True story: We saw an adorable kid wearing these black zipper leggings and we had to know who made them. Her response: “They’re Hard Tail, and they make them in big people size, too.” Yes, we checked, and they do make them in “big people size.” Who knew fifth-graders had such a great sense of…

We’ve all had something that we’re really excited about initially, but then it lets us down. At that point, we have to reassess our “loves it” list and move on to the next thing. These 10 items were overdone in 2008, so in 2009 we’re ending our love affair.

Lindsay Lohan Finally Has A Hit

Her acting career may be in the crapper, but Lindsay Lohan’s fashion line is a hit. She’s kicking ass with her fast-selling debut legwear line, created through her company, 6126 (a name inspired by Lohan’s idol, Marilyn Monroe, whose birthday was June 1, 1926).

Stunning Hosiery For Fall

When I was in high school I butted heads with the evil nuns because I wore patterned tights with my uniform. They said I was a distraction to the other students. After I graduated, they changed the rulebook, making solid color tights the only acceptable hosiery. I still appreciate hosiery that is different, even though…
