Slinky Sexy Leggings - Do we love them?

Leggings are nothing new on the fashion scene and I kinda thought they might have dropped off the radar for the new Autumn/Winter collections. But oh no, they're sticking around and they're available in a wider range of looks.

So if you like you fashion simple, edgy, avant-garde or full on sexy. There's something for all of you.

For my first pick, we have the very fashion forward avant garde astonishingly expensive Alexander McQueen pailette leggings.(£1045...yes I said pounds)

Again, perhaps a tricky sell, especially as I remember Beyonce performing at an award show dressed as a robot in a similar gold Balenciaga that's why I posted the second picture as well so we can all see how surprisingly normal they can look if you keep the rest of your outfit simple and toned


Next up we have the slinkiest sexiest edgiest leggings from my absolute favourite spot for great basics...American Apparel. $42 in the US or £29 in the UK.

I know looking at these pictures, they might seem like a hard sell but about a month ago a friend of mine wore her out and they looked FABULOUS! But be warned, the slinky shiny fabric makes people want to touch them!

And for the more shy and retiring fashion maven we have the splendidly simple leggings from Splendid at $

Yeah the Balenciaga ones were a trip, interestingly I decided to stop wearing leggings, im tired jare i did them in the early 90's and from early 2005-2007 abegi!

But i have the shinny pvc looking ones in black n sliver(primarni,lol! 6quid) and some lace gothic onces which i suprisingly got from H&M NY, the one outside Penn.

Early 2007 I think, Grazia was calling them treggings?lol, as in extremely skinny pants which were thicker fabric than leggings, that trend did not catch on! Yes another long comment! Bissesx

Lagos is...Lagos! Lol! I'm just here on holiday. It's fun but very frustrating atimes (NEPA & third mainland bridge closure!).

I really want to try the leather leggings cos i think they look so sexy paired with the right thing. I haven't explored leggings fully yet so i'm not bored yet.

I am only adventurous with my accessories - jewellery, bags and shoes...I usually keep my clothes simple and conservative...

The leggings thing..emm not too sure..havent been sure..hwoever, a few days ago, a friend of mine who just returned from the states bought me some black leggins and delightful green smock like thing...Love the smock...but i am determined to wear them together...maybe i will convert?

The latex looking leggings are in my mind reminiscent of the show Real Sex on HBO...kinly looking..the uber shiny things..not sure..

Maybe i am just square or getting old...

@cheetarah...yep, I'm a grazia fan and ever since they coined the term WAG, they've been busy making up words in the hope they catch on.

@oyinkan...i'm with you on that but I tend to feel swamped in long tunic type tops so I'll have to wait and see.

@cheetarah...take a look at this

@uzo..they are a bit S&M but that's why they're so sexy! Sqaure? You?

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
