Strictly Fab Look For The Fall: Leather/Lame’ Leggings
Posted October 22, 2008on:
A look that was originally made super hot in the spring has now made its way to the fall in a fiery flash of fashion fire…leather/lame’ leggings! Who woulda thunk it? Surprisingly, this disco fever look has translated well into the millennium. Check out who’s been rocking the look lately:
MC Lyte at the VH-1 Hip Hop Honors keeping it fresh and young with an off-the-shoulder top and platform heels.
Rihanna wears her leggings with feathers with a bustier, cropped blazer, and ultra-long necklace…always the alternative look…but mostly fab!
Eve, looking rather splenderiffic after coming out of fashion hiding. She completes her rock glam look with a gold lame top and black booties.
The epitome of maternal style, Jennifer Lopez, pulling the look together (while preggers, no less)with a sweater, black top, skinny patent leather belt, and open-toed strappy heels.
Queen of the party scene, Lindsay Lohan, wearing the black/white look with Mary Jane heels.
Kelly Rowland rocking it with black blouse with blouson sleeves and patent leather calf-length boots.
One of my favorite hot mamas, Heidi Klum, adding a pop of color with an Elizabeth & James mini dress. I still love that YSL croc tote!
Christina Milian rocking the look with a sheer gauzy top and black (suede looking) knee boots.
To get the look, you first need a pair of hot leather (looking ;0) leggings. Hot Topic and American Apparel have some very affordable choices:
Hot Topic Lame Leggings at $18.99
American Apparel Leggings at $44.00
You can use the celeb looks as a guide to finish your look. The most difficult (and boldest) task is finding the leggings. Now that you have them, be creative with your look…and keep it strictly stylish!
