Getting Leggy with the Latest Trend

Leggings. Already a trend on the young Hollywood scene, they are now becoming a mainstream accessory... of sorts. Recently seen on Madonna under a wrap dress and on Lindsay Lohan with a strapless dress and cowboy boots, Lycra leggings have come a long way from their Desperately Seeking Susan days in the excessive '80s and their no-nonsense gym use in the '90s. While the layered look they offer is superb for transitioning from balmy to cold weather, they also hold you in enough to provide the perfect excuse for eating that extra donut. Take a cue from the celebrity circuit and wear these Urban Outfitters leggings ($10 at under a dress, or create your own look by pairing them with a micro-miniskirt and flats. Who knows what style will be resurrected from the dead next. Anyone miss shoulder pads?
