The Leggings... Over it.

Last fall, short skirts were given a new life in the cooler climate when the fashion world OK'd wearing tights under them. Paired with flats or heels, these leggings gave a hip edgy feel to sweet skirts from the spring and summer.

But now the spring is beginning and it's time to shelve the leggings. And while you're at it, keep them shelved. Edgy, straight lines are out. Look through the pages of any spring issue fashion mag and you'll find flowy garments in floral, feminine fabrics. The whole season seems to scream, "Let loose!"

Bright colors and wedges do not mix well with leggings, so don't even try it. Instead, show off your gams! Flirty sandals, earthy details and weightless fabrics seem to float on bodies.

Final verdict: Leggings=Over it!
