Whether you love them or loathe them, one thing's for sure--latex leggings are a trend that seems to be sticking around for another season. A look that used to be reserved for guitar-yielding heavy metal band members from the 80s, these "liquid" pants have evolved into a style staple that is all-at-once uptown sophisticate and edgy urban chic. I spotted two, one splurge and one steal, that are worth trying for your next night out.
The Kova & T Latex Leggings ($110) have a cutout heel that looks appealingly like a modern-day stirrup.
Leave it American Apparel to offer their Shiny Leggings ($42) in a wide range of cool colors, like purple, red, and copper (pictured).
