It’s a trend that has been slowly gaining followers since the summer; a trend that can look stunning, or go horribly wrong. Forget opaque tights this winter, PVC leggings will bring you straight up-to-date for 2009. X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke showed that she was a true celebrity when she headed to her music studio last week in PVC leggings and a long black and white print top.
They are certainly doing the celeb circuit at the moment, with Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding and Rihanna all sporting the look on multiple occasions. The look can go from day to night, casual or formal. The key is to not over-do it, a little shine goes a long way! Only go for this look if you love your legs, because you will get a lot of attention. Wear them for the evening with a long length t-shirt or dress over top, and for day under a jacket or jumper dress.
Topshop have a pair for £18, and Asos have some for the same price. Of course there are others ways to wear PVC, but if you prefer your lingerie to be a bit more subtle and your jacket a bit less nineties, leggings are the best step forward!
