Move over, Justin Bieber and Russell Brand. The tights they often sport – dubbed “Meggings” (Men + Leggings = Meggings) — may soon be a common sight on men everywhere, from our neighbor Lou to our Uncle Wesley. Oh, boy. Word in the fashion world is that come 2013, these “Meggings” could be all the rage.
Meggings: Yea or Nay?
Personally, I’m not sure if we’re ready for this. It’s not that we don’t appreciate the male form, it’s just that we’re not sure we want to see so much of the um, form, especially in places like the supermarket, church or at the dinner table. Whitesnake in the 80’s? Yes. Bieber today? Yeah, I guess. But there’s something about the landlord telling us about rent increases while wearing emerald green ribbed leggings that makes us uncomfy.
Fair Isle Leggings
Fair Isle Leggings, $13.00 from Forever21 Break away from solid hues or traditional styles with patterns. We're loving the choices, from black and white stripes to funky geometric shapes.
However, Meggings hasn’t taken the fashion world by storm . . . yet. Time will tell. So, until every coffee shop, workplace and mall is knee-deep in Megging-mania, us ladies are going to steal the show.
What are some of your favorite leggings? How do you wear them?
