BLACK DENIM HIGH WAIST ELASTIC BOW BELT BOOT CUT LEG PANTS
Why not add a whole new meaning to the term "hot pants?" Most of the time, all we ask of our leggings is that they're comfortable and versatile enough to throw underneath our favorite tops. When the colder weather strikes, however, we need a lil' something extra if we plan on leaving the house. The blustery winds can be enough to make you want to wear nothing but sweats, but the change of season doesn't mean you need to sacrifice looking cute in order to stay warm. Whether you're sick of them or not, leggings aren't going anywhere soon, so while that's more than we can say about summer, we've got some cold-weather safe picks to add to your legging collection Heavier fabrics from jeans and sweater materials to velvet and suede are one way to keep your tush toasty. And don't underestimate simple additions such as patches, zips and buttons to give your garment just a little something extra when facing the fall. Regardless of temperature, any of this season's takes on the now-staple, skin-tight classic are bound to make you look hot: it's not about the warmth your leggings will bring you this upcoming season -- it's about the heat the new season will bring to your leggings to make you look hotter than ever!
What better way to enjoy the cold and make a fool of yourself than to grab your silliest friends and go ice skating?! And just so you don't have to think about anything else besides having fun, here are some wardrobe must-haves for your next winter jaunt to the rink (or pond). First of all, don't wear jeans. If you fall, they'll just get heavy, wet, and uncomfortable. Instead, throw on this pair of slim black pants with stretch by J.Crew. On top, layers are key. Grab something like this lightweight turtleneck by James Perse, and bring a hoodie, a fleece, or a jacket like this parka from Adidas by Stella McCartney. Since most ice skates have little padding, don't forget some heavy socks - check out these "fleece welly" socks by the maker of the original rain boots, Hunter. Gloves are also not a bad idea if you plan on falling a lot - i.e. making the most of your experience! Try on these candy-colored J.Crew colorblock gloves in a wool/cashmere blend. Now I can't wait to get out there! Don't miss the SLIDESHOW of these great ice skating fashion finds!
