Greetings fashion lovers. Is everyone keeping cool? Some of you may have noticed as the temperature starts to heat up, the clothes start to come off. Translation: it’s time to start toning your gams, hams, sams (ha ha), and whatever else you need to keep yourself lookin’ good. Speaking of gams, you’re probably showing them off via denim cutoffs or cute sundress as we speak. But if you’re like Ms. Alba at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, you’re highlighting them another way. The brunette beauty opted for a contemporary Louise Goldin ensemble fully equipped with sheer blank tank, asymmetrical skirt, and sparkly stirrup leggings which, in my opinion, took the cake. Make sure you scope out retailers’ shelves to find an Alba-inspired look for a simple and easy way to amp up your nighttime style. I know I’ll be looking!
While sparkle is a way to glam your gams, print will get you to the other extreme. Try this for a more urban look but beware—prints, especially when worn tight as with leggings, tends to create the illusion of more fullness. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m not trying to look bigger than I am. Okay, okay, there are some exceptions. For example, I do own a muted leopard legging which I find acceptable because of its dark colors. Light or bright colors are more difficult to pull off. If you’re bent on the idea of a printed bottom, opt for dark over light and small over large. Larger prints, you guessed it, make you look larger! I say don’t run the risk but if you insist, try a tie-dye which has at most two neutral colors (grey and white, blue and white, etc.).
