It's Been Real

As 2015 comes to a close (how did this happen so fast?), it's time for the annual fashion review.

Whether we are throwing on some gym pants or rocking out with suede or leather leggings, this garment is a closet staple that we are quite familiar with by now. The thing is, the variety is endless.
