There’s little doubt that leggings make a polarizing sartorial statement; I’m pretty sure most of us vote either a solid “yay” or a definitive “nay” when it comes to styling them for street-worthy looks…with very few stuck in any sort of grey area!!
While I’m not a fan of those ubiquitous athletic leggings for anything but workout wear, I’m a huge proponent of black leather leggings for adding a bit of rock-and-roll edginess to a wardrobe. Despite being more comfortable than the average pair of jeans (they’re pull-on, after all!) they often feel more “I made an effort” than denim does…especially when paired with some fabulous footwear!!
And speaking of footwear – aren’t my new Sam Edelman sandals beyond amazing?! I’ve been uncharacteristically restrained when it comes to summer shopping this year, but leaving these beauties behind after I discovered them during a recent Winner’s foray simply wasn’t going to happen!!
Do leggings count as “real” clothes in your closet, dear readers…or do you wear them only when you’re headed to the gym?? Have you dared to try a pair in leather yet?? I hope you’ll take a moment to share!!
