You know what? This is NOT OKAY:
I am willing to accept the leggings trend as more than just a blip on the retro-fashion radar. I admit it - I think black capri-length leggings kind of actually have the ability to look good every so often. My grudging but inevitable surrender to the black leggings trend is well-documented and something I am totally willing to own up to. But HELLS TO THE N-O on lace-trimmed bike shorts (because, kids, that's what these are: these are above the knee and therefore they are bike shorts). This is just taking it too goddamn far.
Here is what urbanoutfitters.com has to say about this monstrosity:
A lacey addition to the classic spin on leggings. They go great with skirts, short dresses, or hey, make up your own rules!No. There is not a single concept in this product description that is not a lie:
- A lacey addition to the classic spin on leggings.
- They go great with skirts, short dresses
- or hey, make up your own rules!
