There was a time when our favorite bottom clothes was low-rise bottom flares. Remember those shaming moments when we bent down to reach something on the floor, our under clothes, well, our g-string showed! Those were the nightmare times of the new Millennium. When the thrill of the new time, from all of the energy of the all girl bands, like the Spice Girls, released a new sort of feminist movement, and everybody bared so much, it became just too much for others to stand. Fortunately that era has long past and has been replaced with a new spurt of style.
I am sure you’ll be very mindful of this trend, because almost everyone from the Universe except the male population is doing it. Generally it’s everywhere. From the girl on the street to the popular gramps in the tea shop. What trend is ‘that ‘ flexible? You may ask. Yes, it’s the leggings trend! It used to be an extremely popular trend in the 80s by the acorbate devotees and was seen as extremely superseded at 1 time. It seems to me that entire generations of style expert are fed up with the whole denim low-rise thing, inspired by Britney. Like Britney, that trend was doomed by 2005.
Startlingly, leggings became the saviour to rescue us from our wardrobe quandary. If you are stuck, without knowing what to wear with a short dress in the summer, a pair of black leggings will make it suddenly young and reasonably casual. If we are doubtful whether our fave tiny black dress appears a bit tired, it’s often possible to refresh it with a couple of colourful published leggings.
Gone is the perception that the leggings obsession is only for the fetish fanatics. With the arrival of the much beloved brand ‘Black Milk’, leggings have become mainstream and not at all limited to the male population to be crazy about. They have invented the galaxy prints on leggings and made their fortune from it.
You could think leggings are only for young gals fortunate enough to have slim pins. Not correct. From the latest sighting of Cher, who steps out in her leather biker jacket and black leggings, it proves that you can definitely ‘turn back time ‘ and you are never too old for leggings.
What about the outrageously curvy Amber Rose? She steps out in plenty of elaborately designed leggings. She’s definitely not shy of her legs. So as you can see, all of us can use leggings as one large comfort blanket for our sartorial need.
