What’s my next plan of action? I ask Facebook. But Facebook told me something that my dream wardrobe could not understand. People consider leggings to be anti-versatile. In an attempt to prove the worthiness of leggings it’s about time I consulted said dream-wardrobe and style my soon-to-be-here Black Milk wet-look leggings into three very different outfits.
|Jacket – Glasses – Amy from Doom Generation|
Inspired by The Doom Generation
Another of my favourite films The Doom Generation has main Goth character Amy who undoubtably holds an explosive style. When rocking a dark look with leggings you don’t have to forget the vintage inspired accents.
Amy combines fifties dresses with interesting coats (some borrowed from
her boy) and signature sunglasses. To translate this to a wet-look
leggings outfit I’d add a vintage inspired shirt, gigantic moto-jacket
and dramtic cat-eye sunglasses plus her kickass bob.
|The Craft – Pullover – Rosary (purple/silver)|
Inspired by The Craft
Who said you had to be wearing a skirt to resemble characters from the Craft? While I adore the black maxi that has become the epitome of Craft re-creation, replacing it with an interesting textured legging can be just as magical. Top it off with tones of necklaces (ninety’s inspired chokers are so easy to find at the moment and rosaries are definitely not excluded), some witchy boots and a lacy pull-over.
|Blouse – Coat – Sweeney Todd|
Inspired by Sweeney Todd
It’s interesting how many looks a lacy frock-inspired-coat can create in the style of Gothy film characters. The base is a loose peasant inspired blouse and wet-look leggings. No gentlemen would be caught without a cravat and waistcoat. Finally, your ready for an stroll down Bakers Street.
Leggings are definitely not to everyone’s taste but they have a lot of strengths I prefer over pants (more comfortable, the stretch means that I don’t have to worry about being between sizes and they’re warm while not be a particularly heavy item). What are your thoughts on leggings? If you could work them into a film inspired outfit, what would you wear?
