23 Wild Cage Fashions

From Chained Leggings to Birdcage Skirts

— November 7, 2009 — Fashion
We've seen a massive rise in cage fashions. These pieces use cutout panels to give the illusion of containment and freedom—a curious juxtaposition of opposites. This slideshow features the most viral cage fashions Trend Hunter has featured. From cage skirts and dresses to ribcage purses and chained-up leggings, there's plenty of constriction to catch your eye.

Implications - The cage fashion rage came about after celebrities such as Lady Gaga have embraced them. Something about the caged look is totally edgy and badass. If you want to try out this look, the featured items could hold the inspiration you've always needed. You can go all out with a full cage skirt, or take small steps at a time and start with something tiny such as a cage-detailed purse.
