While browsing Mrs. Grapevine, I noticed this style trend that's been going on and off for the past year and a half-spandex tights!

Suddenly fashion savvy femmes like Mariah Carey, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce and Rihanna have worn this dreaded trend style.

Beyonce paired her black skin-tight Oxford cropped leggings with a pair of black and white Sergio Rossi sandals. Beyonce's foot gear is the same one Nia Long and Posh have rock earlier.

Mariah slip on a pair of black and white Giambattista Valli heels. These shoes are the very pair Nicole Scherzinger wore to present at the 2007 Video Music Awards.

Kelly Rowland dressed up her Oxford capris with a flirty Grecian-like black blouse and a chic pair of black ankle heels when she attended the 2006 VMAs Absolute party.

This style is for not anyone as these tights are transparent and borderline wardrobe malfunction. Case in point, Beyonce and Rihanna's unitard look:

Beyonce wore this criss-cross unitard look at the 2003 Bilboard Awards. Rihanna opt for the v-neck look while out and about in Manhattan.

So do you do think spandex tights are a Practical or Impractical Style Trend??!!
