Leggings are 'not trousers'
Leggings are generally considered to be great things for everyone to own in the coming months, but only if they are used properly, according to one expert.

Kelsey Rubenking, a fashion specialist writing for the Examiner, explained that under no circumstances should leggings be simply used as trouser supplements, even if they look great in the mirror on the morning.

Ms Rubenking explained that "leggings are even less forgivable to your body and silhouette than skinny jeans are and even on a tall, lithe model, they still don't qualify as bottoms by themselves."

She added that there really is nothing less flattering than showing off every curve and fold of the body to the public, which leggings sometimes have the propensity to do.

According to Female First, leggings are an unstoppable trend this April and beyond, with the likes of Katy Perry making them an extremely fashionable investment.
