AW09 Trend – Lace Leggings

Chanel AW09 lace and detailLace has threatened a huge come back for the last few seasons and it seems it has achieved just that for AW09. Chanel’s AW09 collection went lace-tastic with tights, gloves and veils accessorising their classic skirt-suits, creating a sexy, feminine look.

Of course this look is fabulous and were I able to wear Chanel suits I would definitely be wearing lace tights with them. Alas the chances of me wearing the hallowed tweed is slim to say the least so I need to go about this lace wearing in a different manner…

I’ve come up with lace leggings, you still get the pretty femininity of lace but you can do much more with them. Wear them, if you dare, with a leotard a la Lady Gaga or if you are a more reserved disposition then wear them under your distressed denim, or with your little dress and booties for a totally on-trend Autumn 09 look.

    My comfort zone is coloured tights – I would wear them with everuthing!

    With lacy tights you are walking a thin line between elegant and trashy…call me boring but I would probably only wear them with something elegant, like a pencil skirt.

      It’s a very thin line! If you can do elegant then wow, lace leggings / tights would look totally beautiful with a pencil skirt.
      I just love the idea of showing a little lace through the rips in my jeans, plus it means i can wear them in the chillier months! yay!
