On Trend – Leggings

Did you know that leggings go back hundreds of years?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 Leggings are a type of skin-tight garment that covers the legs and may be worn by both men and women. Originally, leggings were two separate garments, one for each leg.

Modern leggings are typically made from a blend of lycra (aka spandex), nylon, cotton, or polyester blend, but can also be made from wool, silk, and other materials. Leggings are available in a multitude of colors and decorative designs. Leggings are sometimes worn fully exposed, but are more traditionally worn partially covered by a garment such as a skirt, a large t-shirt, shorts, or fully covered by an outer garment, such as a full length skirt.

Leggings are typically ankle-length, and some are stirrupped. Some are shorter. Leggings are worn to keep a person’s legs warm, as protection from chafing during an activity such as exercise, or as a decorative or fashion garment. Leggings are worn by both men and women during exercise but usually only by women at other times. In contemporary usage, leggings refers to tight, form-fitting trousers that extend from the waist to the ankles.

History

Leggings of the Native Americans (Karl May Museum, Radebeul).

Leggings in various forms and under various names have been worn for warmth and protection by both men and women throughout the centuries. The separate hose worn by men in Europe from the 13th to 16th centuries (the Renaissance period) were a form of leggings, as are the trews of the Scottish Highlands. Separate leggings of buckskin leather were worn by some Native Americans. These were adopted by some Long Hunters, French fur trappers, and later by mountain men. They are the leatherstockings of James Fenimore Cooper‘s Leatherstocking Tales. The Buckskins were mostly a dull grey brain-tan, not the bright, glossy vegetable tanned leather commonly used today.

Cowboys wore leggings of buckskin to protect from chapping caused by riding, wear and tear to their pants, and bites from animals, such as snakes or insects in the scruff, such as ticks.

In many places, especially in colder countries such as Russia or Korea, men and women continued to wear wool leggings into modern times, often as an additional outer layer for warmth.

The linen pantalettes worn by girls and women under crinolines in the mid-19th century were also a form of leggings, and were originally two separate garments. Leggings became a part of fashion in the 1960s, as trousers similar to the capris pants but much tighter.  Read more

Matching Shoes and bag with Pastels

How do you match your shoes and handbag to a pastel dress?

Women’s’ shoes have been all over the map color-wise for the last decade or so.  Maybe I’m a bit old fashioned but I think shoes should at least match your outfit or complement it.

When making this set I thought the bag and shoes should be in the same color family as the dress but a matching pastel seemed to disappear against the lovely print.  A darker wine/burgundy enhances the soft pinks and makes a striking statement.  The Joan Burgundy tote from Brenda Macleod is functional and works with just about any outfit.

Pastel Dress

Lets see how the designers at Polyvore match shoes with pastel dresses:
