Spandex 'does not equal leggings'

Spandex 'does not equal leggings'
Leggings are ubiquitous in modern fashion and yet people still manage to get the style of legwear completely wrong, one writer has asserted.

Allison Perry of the Examiner said that leggings have been reincarnated in so many styles, fashions and the like, though people still insist on wearing spandex trousers in much the same way as leggings - a cardinal sin in her eyes.

She noted that the look will never be pulled off with any accessory or jewellery and that it should be bound to exercise alone.

Ms Perry added: "If you don't have a bike and you are sporting spandex, you better be hiking, running, or on the way to or from the gym with footwear and other attire that says 'I'm working out' or that you are on your way to or from so doing."

Yesterday, those wearing laddered tights were lambasted by Hadley Freeman, a Guardian fashionista, who said the look was "self-deceiving" when it came to stylishness.
