The Fall/Winter 2009 must-have item is textured leggings. They offer the comfort of sweatpants combined with a chic runway look. Textured leggings are best worn with a solid short skirt or a longer sweater, t-shirt or tunic. A solid color looks best because it helps to offset the busy look of the leggings.
Adorable textured leggings can be found at Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh, Iceburg, Vandervoist, and Urban Outfitters. Even J.Crew has a lovely gray herringbone pair I am dying to get.
