Leggings 'make comeback'
Leggings have made a comeback this year, according to fashionistas at one publication.

Fashion commentator Melissa Magsaysay wrote in the LA Times that the 80s alternatives to pants are now "chic".

She added that "lacy, glitzy, denim or in plain black" leggings give those that wear them long-lean looking legs that can be matched with a sweater or jacket.

Love them or hate them there is no way they can be ignored, Ms Magsaysay stated, adding that several brands have recently sprung up solely dedicated to producing them.

According to the report, actress-come-singer Lindsay Lohan has her own line of leggings.

Lohan's 6126 legwear comes in a number of different appearances including black with rhinestone studs.

Kelli Delaney, creative director and designer for Members Only, told the publication: "Leggings have become as important to a girl's wardrobe as her favourite pair of jeans. And just like you need all kinds of jeans, you now need all kinds of leggings."

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reported this week that women struggling with the credit crunch should use leggings to revamp last year's looks.
