Latex Kitty in Copenhagen writes in with her tutorial on working sheet latex into leggings. I've never worked with the stuff, but apparently there are some special techniques involved including de-powdering and gluing together your very own pair of super-shiny leggings.
Spring and summer of 2008 - 2009 are starting off the new year will a little latex. This latex is surely one you will be able to wear out in public. With the skinny jean seeing its final days, the new and hotter latex legging is making a celebrity debut and our fashion crazy world is ready for this new look.
From young to old, the red carpets are being heated with the introduction of this years skinny jean. The latex legging, very similar to the traditional long footless legging worn in the past few years, is popping up under long shirts and short dresses. With the likes of the Olsen twins, Rihanna and Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, all wearing this tighter than tight legging of plastic, Hollywood has never looked so protected.
It seems this new fashion dare is only currently being worn in the steadfast color of black. With spring on the horizon, there may be an introduction of patterned latex or even pastels to match those light and airy dresses of summer. Only Hollywood will be able to prove the next direction for the latex legging.
It is too early yet to know whether or not this new fashion trend will filter out of Hollywood and into the stores where all fashion minded women will be able to don these slick, black beauties, but one thing is for sure...there is no hiding anything when your pants are made from latex.
