It is a phenomenon, of sorts. The ubiquitous legging. They appear on the scrawny legs of a multitude of young stars in the disposable weeklies. It's really just another variation of going bottomless. Although most of the modern leggings look like you forgot to put on a pair of pants, these 1980's Alaia leggings have substance. As a matter of fact, they look legitimate. Top these stretch wool leggings with this amazing Alaia ribbed and zig-zag woven wool zippered cardigan. This takes "cardi" to an entirely new level. How chic would this be over layered Rick Owens tee-shirts? This is a prefect transitional piece that will work right "now" on a cool summer night and will also work "then" on a fall day.
