Those Daryl K ones are so hot .. very sexy indeed ... you would have to be postivly anorexic to pull them off though .. thos emtalic leggings were around this winter and tbh there is only one person ive seen pull them off and that our very own elegance is refusal ... but tbh I guess when they are done well they can look great but topshop has unfortiantly made loads of people think they can pull them off .. which they cant

My best friend has the American Apparel shiny nylon tricot ones in burgundy. She looks so great in them. Unfortunately, it gets very hot here, so there's not much opportunity to wear them. Shame, I was thinking of buying a pair.

I'm craving some of those AA tights right now! They would look so cute under a long tshirt with a fendora hat and ballet flats! Or would that be combining too many trends?

This all excites me, I cant wait to be in a flying car while wearing a transforming chalayan dress as I walk out of it... I guess the subway and AA metalic tights will have to do for now.

I have a pair of the AA tricot ones and they are super comfy. I don't have to worry about it being too hot here but I haven't worn them in warm weather yet. I love those Hussein Chalayan ones. Beautiful!

American Apparel should definitely come out with new styles and colors for their metallic leggings........ not too tight and a bit saggier would be a welcome change.....

I like metallic narrow pants, not the leggings. I've seen those metallic leggings on people IRL... AA needs to redesign them, the fit isnt flattering on 3/4 the people who wear them. The runway versions that go over the top of the foot are nice, really elongates the leg, but I dont like the bunching and gathering that happens b/c of the material. coupled with rubber look makes it look almost flesh-like.

I prefer a metallic lean pant, structured at the waist, but slightly baggier and slouchier away from the shape of the leg. in between a straight leg & a skinny leg pant, narrow and clean. that would be more wearable.
