Skirting the Issue

It couldn’t hurt to get a leg up once in awhile, right?

Well, heading to the office this morning, the elevator was--as usual-- awash in stems of blue denim. (Yep, we wear our passion with pride around here).

But one gal stood out. She was wearing leggings and adorable skirt.  And although it wasn’t super-lengthy, the garb spoke volumes about her fashion sense.

It seems the wardrobe staple has languished for years and now – it’s baaack! Whether your gams are ready or not, the leggy creations are the hottest spring trend.

A-line, minis, pencil, below-the-knee, above-the-knee, even running skirts are everywhere.   And according to a recent NY Times article, fashion-y folks are saying yes to all of the above.

Does that mean we’ll abandon our madcap denim obsession? Heck, no. But when everybody zigs – it sure is fun to zag.
