Chains with Benefits

My ridiculously amazing James Lillis Cages arrived!  They are really stunning and fit great.  The chains aren’t too heavy that the leggings are uncomfortable either, which just rounds out my happiness with them.  Did I mention these are also available with silver chains?  Since gold has taken over my daily jewelry wear, I went with the gold chains.  To show off the versatility of these leggings, I styled them in three different ways.  This first look is more of a going out type of outfit.  Yes, I added even more metallic shine with the speckled gold top and studded shoes.

For the second look, I decided to take it down a notch and go for a more casual chic look with the addition of the blazer and my favorite pair of multi-buckle booties.

For the third look, I just wanted to throw in some color a la this jacket and my Topshop studded boots.  Yes, upon first glance, these leggings are way out there, but I plan to throw on an over-sized white tank or one of my American Apparel V-neck shirts for a casual look.  These are definitely a fun addition to my wardrobe because I get to experiment and style them in a number of ways.  BTW, head over to James Lillis’ blog to learn about his other amazing leggings and unique, new creations!

    Terrific look! The first one is my favorite. At first glance, I didn’t realize the leggings had chains… I thought they were cut-outs! But the chains make it even more glam. Congrats on the purchase!

    I thought they were cut-outs at first too! Those are so bad-ass and you pull them off well. My fav look is the blazer, I think it ‘calms’ the leggings down a bit haha
