Friends have suggested to me over the last year that if I have trouble finding stylish people to shoot, that I could do a "What Not To Wear" blog. When I started this blog, I knew that I wanted it to be a positive celebration of those people who push the envelope with their clothing and style choices, not a mean-spirited critique. However, now that the weather has been nicer, and the temperature has risen to the double-digits, I feel compelled to make a plea, to women everywhere, but particularly those on the streets of London. Please stop wearing black (or any other colour) leggings as pants! Black leggings are not pants, they will never be pants, and should not be worn instead of pants. Do I need to explain the phrase "camel toe"? Cellulite encased in black, shiny lycra, is still cellulite, and it's not pretty.
It's Spring! Wear some colour, wear a skirt, wear a dress--you can even, if you can't give up your leggings, wear them under a skirt or dress for extra warmth. A top that comes to the top of your hipbone is not a dress. Black leggings are the refuge of the dull and the unimaginative--there, I said it. If you need some inspiration, just take a look at some of the people on my blog.
