To Wear or not to Wear..?
That is, indeed, the question.
Like much of the blogosphere, I am vastly enamoured with Alexa Chung's seemingly effortless style and would, like everyone else, pretty much kill for her wardrobe (yet more cliches...) but I am not sure about her latest fashion fare. Although one of my many aims in life is to front row at Chanel in Paris a la Alexa (or, let's face it, just to get into the building!), I am in two minds whether to emulate her latest look, leg-wise.
I don't copy her looks often at all, but I am a huge fan of polka dot (and heart print) tights but am getting a little bit bored of wearing them tous les jours, especially considering the awful weather (oh, what I wouldn't give to rip off said tights and run around a field bare legged; I told you I was strange). So, in her inimitable style, Alexa added some Chanel 'cycling shorts' to jazz up her polka dot wonders... I did think she was wearing a skirt with them until I looked at the picture again but no. She was literally only wearing cycling shorts. To Chanel. Oh dear.
However, I think the look itself (under a skirt or a dress) is actually pretty good and certainly adds a fresh element to the Balenciaga lookalike tights.
I did indeed jump on the bandwagon (again) and buy my own lace-bottomed cycling shorts (although mine were about 3 squids from H&M rather than 300 - or similar - from Chanel) but I have been too afraid thus far to actually brave wear them - or not, as the case may be...
What do you reckon - to wear or not to wear?!
