Zipper Leggings From American Apparel

Yes, these leggings zip from hip to ankle. This is one trend I hope I don’t see too often. American Apparel has recently started selling in store and online Zip-away tights.

Leggings can be gaudy enough, what with the introduction of rhinestone and lace, but I believe zippers may be taking it one step too far. Leggings are supposed to be casual chic; keeping it simple is your best option when pairing this fashion statement with a long sweater or hip button-down, yet adding this 1980s flair to your leg is just over the top.

And what would be the need for these leggings anyway? I have yet to see the actual use for the zipper besides being ridiculous and ugly all at once.

And let's not forget the price tag at $52 each. At that price point I’d rather skip the zipper and go with good old pull-down spandex! Stats for Zip-Up Leggings Trending: Older & Average
