The leggings trend sprouted like wild fire in the 60’s. Iconic stars like Audrey Hepburn (with her all-black second-skin uniform in the musical film Funny Face), Olivia Newton-John (wore shiny black leggings in the 1978 hit musical film Grease) and the legendary Rod Steward (made a wild statement on stage during the British leg of his world tour with his shiny lycras) have showcase the power of leggings and meggings.
And when high fashion in 2005 brought the trend back, these comfortable bottoms seems to be staying on (might be a staple bottom soon too). There seems to be a strong split between the love and hate for this comfortable piece of clothing. Very controversial, as some think that they should be worn every way possible, while the other party firmly believes that they are not a substitute for pants. More and more men are also crossing over to the love party as these leggings for men aka meggings are just too comfortable.

Here are a few tips on how to wear leggings.
- A shirt that’s almost long enough to be a dress but is not quite there yet was basically made for leggings.
- Wear a pair of slightly cropped leggings with your favourite ankle boots. It’s a super cute combo.
- Leggings are warmer than tights, so sub them in on cold days! You can easily wear them under a mini skirt. This is an especially great use of your leggings if they’re starting to get old and faded too.
- A long poncho can be very bulky. Wear it with leggings instead of jeans to balance things out.
- Slightly cropped leggings, sneakers and a sweater make your laziest day even more comfortable.
- And if regular plain leggings are too boring, get sequin leggings instead, so much more fun!
Meggings styling can be fun too.
- Wear meggings when you trek through the cold mornings to the gym. Put on a pair of running leggings (with shorts on top) and that will be your perfect workout outfit.
- Running leggings also make you look like professional sportsmen so as long as men remember the shorts layer, meggings all the way!
- And for the daring bunch, get meggings that are brightly coloured, with prints and pair them with longer tops.
While leggings for men are inspired by celebrities like Russell Brand and Justin Bieber, who both favour meggings for casual daytime wear, women’s leggings are still trending as more and more people are embracing the versatility of leggings in fashion.
