I stand corrected on my anti-legging stand! This girl sure knows how to pull it off :-)
Today was the first real SUMMER day in the Netherlands. I’ve never seen more halter tops in one day (I even wore one myself), and oh glory: women are FINALLY starting to wear them with good strapless bras! We had a bit of a see-through-bra-strap disaster here for a year or two…. EEEEEK!
That’s it. Tomorrow I’m NOT flying to Alaska, I’m going to NYC instead to pick me up a pair o’ leggings. I’m sure they must be different out there somehow, the ones we have here are just… well, um,… 1980s yoga wear.
It’s funny: I spent last September in Barcelona, and the legging look was all the rage there. I liked it then, but now everyone I see wearing it just seems a little too lemming-like. And, honestly, it’s not the most flattering look unless you have really slim, perfect legs.
Nay, nothing is ever going to make me like leggings, in any way. Why, I cannot help by getting the impression that people who wear them a)are totally uncomfortable with their own legs and cannot accept the way they naturally are b)follow fashion blindly, and wear ANYTHING they are told to be “trendy” without really liking the thing,and therefore, look so clumsy and artifical c)did not bother to shave their legs.
Great dress and love the jacket – she is cute in a put together, simple, shade way! As for the leggings, I will concur with Sportychick’s comment about all the leggings around here being 80′s yoga wear! Maybe I need to trade my Pearl Izumi biking tights for a pair of fandangled under-the-dress leggin’s! Hmmm… wonder if they are capable of wicking?
I’m a guy and I like the leggings especially with ballet flats. I for one do not agree with those who said that her outfit would have looked better without the leggings. On the contrary, her outfit would look just normal and uninteresting if not for the leggings.
Why does everyone hate on the leggings? They’re simply functional, making a just-barely-long-enough tunic or mini-skirt work and life appropriate. And, I disagree — I don’t think you need to be Twiggy to wear them well. It’s incredibly uncomfortable wearing super-short skirts in this city, what with the wind and the incessant howls from men, so leggings are, for me, a welcome reprieve.
