The recession is being felt everywhere, though one fashion expert now argues that tighter budgets are forcing people to take matters into their own hands when creating the next big thing.
And that new trend that everyone is wanting is ripped leggings, Ashley Reiner of the Houston Fashion Trends Examiner stated.
Despite her belief that the leggings
look was starting to seem a little boring due to the clothing's genuine popularity, the new style of torn leggings
- which could have many young fashionistas reaching for the scissors - is going strong.
Ms Reiner explained: "Who knows if I will ever uncover the mystery behind the trend of ripped clothing.
"But that's the beauty of fashion - it doesn't have to make sense; it just is."
Last week, Coleen Nolan rolled back the years by stepping out in wet-look leggings
, another trend that is remarkably popular at the moment.
