Stylin’ With Detroit Legs

29 Nov

These Detroit leggings are silky, sexy and fabulous. There’s the perfect amount of spandex for a jog, a walk or hot yoga. Yes, they are made in the U.S.A. by skinnytees.

The creative force behind skinnytees is Linda Schlesinger. I’ve known Linda for years, and her creative, fashionable spirit is boundless. And she has a personal and entrepreneurial story that’s compelling. Her messy divorce left her impoverished and depressed, but she overcame her obstacles.

Writer and blogger Suzy Farbman relates how Schlesinger scores and soars with skinnytees. Read it here.

Linda relied on her fashion experience to reinvent herself with skinnytees. Years ago she started out with a children’s boutique and then designed knitwear. Skinnytees began with a simple tank top for women of all sizes. Today there are more than 120 colors and 60 plus styles including tanks, tees, skirts, leggings, etc.

These Detroit leggings are a Motown collage featuring city icons. From the main streets of Woodward to 8 Mile, from the tourist attractions of the Motown Museum and Greenfield Village to the Ambassador Bridge and the tunnel to Canada, these themed leggings are fashionable, stylish and active- wear friendly.

A bonus is that all the profits from the Detroit has Legs collection will benefit the nonprofit Cass Community Social Services, to help support their projects with food, housing, health services and job programs in the metro Detroit area. (Yep, let’s add philanthropic spirit to Linda’s character traits.)

Detroit Has Legs is the first of many themed clothing lines expected from the brand.

I can’t wait for more. Paris, New York? Or maybe Nashville, Palm Beach or Silicon Valley!
