The Afrika Leggings, Okley by M.I.A.: Love It or Hate It?

Who knew M.I.A. came out with a clothing line? We did. M.I.A. has caught our eye a few times — remember when she was the week's Fab favorite? — and her clothing line, Okley by M.I.A., is ready for judging. The performer definitely has her own funky, urban style. If you're into it, you might like these The Afrika Leggings ($85). They totally remind me of the TV show A Different World and Cross Colours. Any takers?

They remind me of Cross Colours and a Different World in a bad way. Plus the price sucks.

It would depend on what you wore with them and your attitude, I'm not really sure if they are for me though

Why are they called Afrika leggings? The design looks more like a mexican blanket to me...

Love M.I.A but hate the leggings. They would probably look cool on her but that's not my style.

Wow - more like "instant fat legs" than leggings

Love M.I.A., love her style-- for her. She's a multimedia artist who makes statements for a living. I personally wouldn't be caught dead in any of it.

I could never pull these off, but I bet some people could and I think they're very cool and unique - they could definitely work, though, in the same way that the Victor & Rolf ones that Shalom Harlow wore so many different ways in that virtual fashion show...

Never, ever in a gazillion years would I wear these.

these are most definitely made for M.I.A. most of the hipster crowd can find a way to pull these off, but they aren't for everybody.

I love MIA and her style but WOW her clothing is super expensive... Its almost $100 for a T shirt.. that's ridiculous. I didn't notice any of the money going to charity either, although I would expect some funds to go to her school. IDK! To me it seems like she would advocate spending less on clothing and more on ppl in 3rd world countries who need food. Just a thought. LOVE MIA THOUGH!!!!

lmao @ bastylefilegirl's comment. so true. ppl seem to forget that as much as they love someone, they should never copy that person's style. i'm an m.i.a. fan and i think she looks great in her clothing but i would never ever dress like her b/c it's not me and i couldn't pull it off. like these leggings. not for me. she did make my wardrobe a little more colorful though. i have a yellow shirt amidst all the grey and black in my closet now

She looks technicolor-homeless. I doubt I'll be buying anything of hers.

I love hate them ahahaha! While I feel they will look great on M.I.A I don't' think they will look good on "her fans". I went to her concert this year and I saw people dressed up like her looking like damned fools it was hilarious!

Pegona- American Apparel has similar ones, but they aren't as colorful.

I'm not surprised, It's M.I.A and this is her style. I'm just not a fan of her and I dont like the leggings either.
