There was once a time when our favourite bottom attire was low-rise bottom flares. Remember those embarrassing moments when we bent down to reach something on the floor, our under garments, well, our g-string showed! Those were the nightmare times of the new Millennium. When the excitement of the new era, from all the energy of the all girl bands, like the Spice Girls, released a new form of feminist movement, and all of us bared so much, it became just too much for others to stand. Thankfully that era has long gone and has been replaced with a new surge 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 It used to be an extremely popular trend in the 80s by the acorbate devotees and was seen as extremely superseded at 1 time.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.
Suddenly, leggings became the saviour to rescue us from our wardrobe dilemma. If you are stuck, not knowing what to wear with a short dress in the summer, a pair of black leggings will make it suddenly youthful and appropriately casual. If we are unsure whether our favourite little black dress seems a bit tired, we can always refresh it with a pair of colourful printed leggings.
Gone is the perception that the leggings obsession is only for the fetish freaks. With the arrival of the much beloved brand ‘Black Milk ‘, leggings became mainstream and not at all restricted 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 extravagantly designed leggings. She’s certainly not shy of her legs. So that you can see, all of us can use leggings as one big comfort blanket for our sartorial need.
