Trend Alert: Skinny Going Strong

We all gasped in horror when Elle‘s Nina Garcia gushed over bumbling Bradley’s puffy shirt/skinny skirt combo on Project Runway. But darn it if La Garcia wasn’t right. Fashion Week was awash in flip-flopped silhouettes, and, yes, that means leggings are back (time to hit the Stairmaster, girls). We don’t blame you if you if you aren’t head-over-stilettos for all the metallic tighties that cropped up on the runways, but for those of us brave enough to bear a little backside, there are wearable options out there. (Zac Posen and Ralph Lauren showed some great top heavy looks.)

Pair BCBG Max Azria Skinny Pants with the voluminous BCBG Max Azria Boiled Bouclé Sweater ($178) for the complete look.

Nordstrom.comicon has handily organized all their lean jeans and skinny pantsicon on one page and of course, Gap offers up its homage to Audrey Hepburn with their slim black pants.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Cowl Neck Matte Jersey Topicon

To draw attention upwards, aim for flowy or boxy shapes up top. Try a Laundry by Shelli Segal Kimono Cardigan

icon or blousy dolman style-sleeve topsicon.
