Here’s a quick little FYI to make sure that you start the new year off in the know: The newest trend sweeping the streets…and by the streets we mean the internet…is “meggings.” Yes, for once this IS what you think it is: Leggings for men. CNN and GQ, among others, have been buzzing about the trend, for better or for worse (in our opinion, it’s just worse).
According to the Huffington Post, at least one stylish male in the public eye (Anderson Cooper) weighed in on the trend — and shared our sentiments against it. But regardless of how we feel, this fashion piece is making a statement in New York, already being sold at Barneys, Nordstrom and Uniqlo.
You’ve officially been warned – so don’t look so shocked when you see some fashion-forward lads taking to the street in these “pants” in the near future. Weigh in men: would you wear meggings? Ladies – will you be purchasing these for your significant other this holiday season? Let us know!
