Don’t kiss your leggings good bye just yet—spandexed gams are still promising to be haute for Fall 2009. While the plain black variety will still keep you looking like you’re in the sartorial know, sprucing them up with a little bit of glitter or wild and daring patterns will lend you that fresher spin to help you strut into a crisp new season.

Designers who featured leggings for Fall 2009 include Marc Jacobs with the space gladiator look, Alexander Wang (the cropped black pair), Doo.Ri (the lacy, glitter tights), Diane von Furstenberg (paired with an animalicious caveman sweater), Alexander McQueen and Fendi’s leather leggings, Gucci’s charcoal disco leggings, Nina Ricci in aubergine spandex, black Maison Martin Margiela paired with what looks like Big Bird’s feathers in an oil spill, and Max Azria who paired black leggings, black leather gloves and a black turtle neck to make a conservative white dress a lot more edgy.
