Check this out: Mind What You Wear is a Dutch label that does what it calls “guerilla fashion” to promote non-conformism, awareness, and small revolution through dress. They’ve got a number of bizarre and off-beat items (try: a sock for your penis, fake Louis Vuitton bags printed with the word “fake” on them, etc.) but the one we found neatest was this pair of braille leggings, which would literally give new meaning to someone feeling you up. One thing we wonder—what do they say? [Mind What You Wear] Keep reading »
Paris Hilton gives us definitive proof that leggings should not be worn in lieu of pants while out shopping with her mom yesterday. She also makes a good case for why wearing underwear is awesome. [Beverly Hills, 11/22/10] Keep reading »
When the weather outside is frightful, these J.Crew leggings will be so delightful. The retailer makes it easy to crave these warm leggings that beg for lazy Saturdays with hot cocoa. (They are called the “ultra-lounge pant” after all.) Vintage-style heathered fabric brings the casual, while a skinny fit makes the stretchies presentable enough that you can throw on a pair of boots and a parka for grocery runs, if you must leave the house.

About what she would pair these leggings with, Banana Hammock wrote: “I recently found some TO DIE FOR 4 inch patent red heels at a thrift store!! They would be just the splash of color to bring out the edgy-ness of these tights!” Keep reading »
There’s leggings. There’s jeggings. So what the hell are “treggings”? It belies my maturity level when my first guess was “triceratops leggings.” But no, treggings are a cross between leggings and trousers. A hybrid, if you will. Treggings are formfitting from the thighs to the legs, but are more structured on top and often have a zipper. Personally I would just call these “tight pants,” but what do I know?
Anyone else think the cutesy names for various types of leggings are getting silly? [FabSugar] Keep reading »
Did Beyonce Knowles‘ House of Dereon fashion line steal the idea of these studded leggings from Icelandic fashion brand E-label? That’s what Helba Hallgrimsdottir, who co-owns E-limited, claims. At left, E-label’s Heavy Metal Leggings designed by Asgrimur Mar Fridriksson. At right, Beyonce in House of Dereon’s version from the fall 2010 lookbook. Supposedly, Beyonce bought the E-label’s leggings last year at a London Top Shop. “I didn’t twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings,” says Hallgrimsdottir upon seeing the disputed pair. “It is practically just copy/paste.” There’s so much studding going around we’re more prone to thinking it was a coincidence or inspiration. What do you think? [ONTD] Keep reading »
