Now this is a perfect example..
I have to say, Drew has swayed me as well! I'm posting this picture (courtesy of Popsugar as an example of how I think leggings should be worn. The 31-year-old Drew pulls this look off for several reasons. The main reason, I think, is that she's in fabulous shape. Women always look younger when they're at a healthy weight. She just has the legs for leggings-long and lean, but not too bony either. Drew also wisely pairs the leggings with a simple, flattering dress and pointy-toed shoes, which add to the long and lean look. (Ballet flats work with leggings, but only if you're Audrey Hepburn proportions.)
Drew obviously takes great care of herself, although it would have served her well to brush her hair before this shot and stand up straight. I know she's on TRL, but seriously...stand up straight, honey.
What's your opinion, readers? Is this a good look for Drew, or should she have worn something else?

Truth or Dare
This combination of dark solids crept a little bit onto fall 06 runways, but didn't quite amass popularity in mainstream fashion this winter. However, it's making a bold comeback, and celebrities and runway models are promising the appearance of this proud trend. And make no mistake about it---this trend is not overshadowed by animal prints, tweeds, polka dots, or other pattern that may detract from the statement it makes. It's a plain and simple combination of black with chocolate brown or navy. It's breaking one of the key rules of fashion, instilled in our heads by our moms, sisters and friends when they proclaimed loudly that we should never carry a black purse with a navy shirt, or wear a brown belt with black pants.
So, readers, what's the truth about this trend? Are you willing to abandon your preconceived notions of mixing black with navy or brown? Will you make a daring attempt to give this trend a shot?
