Please Help Lindsay Lohan Design Her Leggings Line!

Maybe Lindsay is under an especially pinchy deadline, or she’s having trouble taking time out of her busy social schedule, because today FabSugar announced a rather dubious-sounding contest: They’ve teamed up with Lindsay Lohan and her to be taken very seriously 6126 leggings biz to launch a very major contest. They’re calling on blog readers like you to submit tights-as-pants designs — which will be judged by LiLo, ahem — and if you win, well, let’s just say you’ll be $1,000 richer and you can add “leggings designer” to your resume. Which is odd, because that’s what we thought Lindsay was purporting to be? [FabSugar] Keep reading »

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 American Apparel gold leggings. They are at least 20 times more badass.

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 legging fetish, behold [David Lerner’s half-ripped, ripped, and latex leggings!] Although you will never find me in ripped or latex pants, I commend the women that pull the look off flawlessly. Imagine how self-assured you have to be to strut your stuff in shiny, skin-tight material. The leggings-as-pants wearers do not care if passerbys stare and they do not worry about what other people think. They simply live life and exude confidence. This is not to say that those of us who have a more conservative style are any less secure—we just like a different look for one reason or another. However, it is more common to dismiss a woman (as a friend, an employee, etc.) because she is wearing something eccentric rather than to accept her for it. And thus, it is important (for me) to remember that the fashion daredevils warrant the respect and approval of all fashionistas.

Camel Ammo Fights Camel Toe

Camel toe has stepped up its presence across America since leggings are back in style and tighter than ever. Instead of just switching back to pants, people keep coming up with ways to smooth things over. First, there was the
Cuchini
, and now there’s Camel Ammo! For 10 bucks, you can get a pink camo print U-shaped disc that slips right into the cotton flap in the crotch of your panties, which prevents your lady bits from going toe up. Plus, it’s machine washable! Clever, sure, as is the Camel Ammo slogan, “Waging war on the front lines.” But maybe the real problem here isn’t the fabric lip stick, it’s giving women more excuses to continue to wear the fashions that show camel toe. So, just for the record, ladies: tights are still not pants. [Trendhunter]

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,” and “TIGHTS WILL NOT SUFFICE.” Occasionally, I wear nearly opaque tights with shirts that hit at least my mid-thigh, and if anyone gives me one of these flyers, they will get a tongue-lashing and a dissection of their outfit. However, when it comes to women wearing short shirts or leotards with tights around town, I have to agree that’s TMI. I’ve seen women on the street and celebrities wearing tights instead of leggings, and that’s who should be called out, but only by people who have never committed a fashion faux pas in their life.

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] Keep reading »
