Trend To Try: Slashed Leggings

Leggings have been going strong for quite some time and while I’ve been a fan of the classic styles since the beginning, I am obsessed with the new slashed and tattered styles that are taking over.

Ripped leggings are the perfect way to add a bit of an edge and fashion-forward flair to your look. Wear them with a sharp blazer like Lindsay Lohan– who topped off her Pencey leggings with a cropped blazer from Chloé; with a floaty tunic for a sweet yet spicy look, with a boyfriend shirt for a haphazardly thrown together style, or go all out by teaming them with a grungy vintage-tee and some edgy accessories.

You can play it safe and purchase a pair or, if you’re a bit more adventurous, grab a pair of scissors and slash away.

Check out some of my favorite slashed styles after the jump!

I can see myself starting out with deliberate, fashionable holes, to end the night looking a mess with one big hole exposing my leg.

It’s a cute look. I think I might have to keep my slashes at the knees. Don’t want to look like I’m the drunk lady with ripped panty hose.
