Leggings and skinny jeans are flattering my figure, so I have no problem with wearing them, I just look like 2x4 with bigger pants. I've bought an over-sized grey wool cardigan that I'm looking forward to wear this fall, with the leggings or skinny jeans, the boots (alytought with no heels) and the trench coat. I really love this. It's so 80's without the bright colors.Also blue is making it's come-back, leaving the aqua tones for the more rich purple-blue tones.

I like the plaid. The leggings not so much.

I love plaid and big chunky sweaters. Finally I may be able to not wear a bra since all this stuff is baggy. Skinny jeans and leggings are just blah. I would stick with tailored pants, long wools skirts, and preppy cargos. Also I love the leather boots coming out this year.

I bought my lil' daughter similar cardingan pink with belt,as we have Winter here right now (in OZ land) - size 1 - it is so gorgeous - similar to the top one but has to be pink pink - :-)girly. Ankle boots look great when you know how to wear them,I remember always my Sis she rolls up her Jeans and wears them look just fabulous & classy. JK BOOGIE I totally agree with you - I love my SASS & BIDE skinny legs & Chloe boots just great - LUCKY ME I can enjoy it now but don't like the cold cold :-( .

Sorry guys, but I LOVE skinny Jeans. The bold colors and the plaid are cool too. Plaid is almost always in during the fall.
