Leggings are getting wild for fall and I must say I am all over it. If Vera Wang can wear leggings "like a religion" for thirty years then so can I. With all the incredible styles, textures and patterns out there I plan on stocking up for 2011 when designers stop creating them and stores stop carrying. But until then the end of 2009 straight through 2010 will be a legging world.
Some brands pushing the legging envelope this fall will be BCBG with snakeskin, Gareth Pugh and Graham & Spencer with leather, David Lerner with zippers, Alice & Olivia and Siwy with sequins and Christopher Kane for Topshop with embellishments. What do I own? Put me down for zippers, leather, lamé, sequins and hello snake skin. Pair the patterned leggings with solid color tops and the other pairs with solid or patterned tops.
