Older people 'can wear leggings too'
Leggings are not just a trend for the young, one writer has argued, stating that she is reclaiming the fashion for herself and other people of her age.

Vanessa Friedman, a columnist and fashion editor for the Financial Times, stated that she was a particularly big fan of leggings circa 1985 at the tender age of 18, yet she had not worn the hosiery for years.

Following a period of putting them on and immediately taking them off - before chastising herself for daring to try them on at all - she finally started to feel more at ease with leggings.

Ms Friedman explained: "In case you want to know, I do wear my leggings now, all the time, with a small-shouldered narrow jacket and T-shirt that hits somewhere below my stomach. And I love them."

The expert is the first and only person to be in charge of fashion at the newspaper.
