Trend Alert: Liquid Leggings

With tomorrow being the first official day of Spring, I have much to look forward to – beautiful sunshine, more hours of daylight, and no more obligation to wear boring jeans! One trend that I want to be brave enough to pull off this season are liquid leggings. They’re a bold fashion statement that can go so wrong if matched incorrectly, but look so chic when done right. ;) And although they’ve already been around for a couple years, more mainstream stores are starting to popularize them even more as of late.

When most people think of liquid leggings, they usually think black and shiny. But our options shouldn’t be limited to just these two characteristics. Brands like American Apparel have a great stock of colorful liquid leggings in different textures – like snakeskin or glitter, for example. The photo above features three of their super fun metallic shades. :)

I understand why many people wouldn’t be receptive to this trend, though. Criticism for liquid leggings begin with its ability to only be generally flattering on those with long legs and smaller thighs, though I encourage women (and men) of all shapes and sizes to wear what they please.

I’ve also heard that they’re intimidating to wear because of how inflexible they can be with the rest of your wardrobe. Personally, I would suggest wearing a basic solid-colored top and a pair of statement footwear. Accessories should be kept to a minimum, because you don’t want to distract from the main attraction. :P But that’s just my opinion. What do you guys think?

In other news, my friends at Tanda shared this interesting timeline on how skin care has changed throughout history. It’s pretty amazing how far we’ve advanced in science, particularly when it comes to beauty regimens.

I know that many women are skeptical about new treatments, especially when technology promises results that older products couldn’t achieve. But blue light LED therapy has been predicted to be the future of acne treatment! The other day, while I was on the Sephora website, I was pleased to see that they’ve jumped aboard the skin care revolution and are now selling Tanda products. :) It’s definitely something that I would like to try out for myself. :P

  1. Spot on with the styling – simple on top, killer heels on bottom.
