I looked at this picture and something felt strangely familiar. And haunting. Then bam! It came to me: last night I had a dream about black sequined leggings! I dreamed about owning a pair of shiny, black, sequined leggings!
The whys of this dream are completely unknown for the moment. I’ll try, however, to break this in a Freudian manner. Homemade.
I’m no skinny jeans / leggings girls. First because you see them everywhere and second because they make my legs look way fuller than they actually are! Now if you have any rational indication about why that may be, please fill me in! Nevertheless, that didn’t stop me from dreaming about a pair of black sequined leggings! Would you wear one of those? (yeah, I know, it may not look as worn by Chanel, like in this photo-example, but still…)
Although I have yet to solve the mystery of my physical constitution’s incompatibilities with skinny jeans and leggings, I owe you more body details on the lovely 20yo Chanel Iman above: she’s measuring 5ft10 (178cm) or 5ft7 (175cm) but everyone agrees upon her 112.5 pounds (51kg) weight. That safely puts Chanel on the catwalk, as one of those stick-thin models allowing her to wear absolutely anything without fear of muffin-top looks or cellulite showing through too-tight clothes.
Sequins often make for very festive looks but when toned down with a casual top, they become more rock’n roll than glitzy and this is the way Chanel opted to wear them. We’ve seen Victoria Beckham wearing sequin leggings in a more glamorous way as she paired them with a corset and high heels but Demi Lovato comes with yet another example of cool, laid-back sequin leggings look.

As for wearing comfort, I personally only tried a pair of sequined leggings once and they didn’t feel nice at all. They were itchy and scratchy and felt like thorns on my skin. But that’s my experience, I’m certain they wouldn’t be so popular if they were all as comfy as hedgehog skin pants!
