Leggings are 'only for a chosen few'

Leggings are 'only for a chosen few'
The fashion of leggings is great for young girls, yet fully-grown women must abide by certain rules if they are to pull off the look, a fashion expert has stated.

Average Josephine, writing for news provider Everything Michigan, said that leggings are strictly casual clothing and should only be worn to less important events, with the workplace a particular no-no for the trend.

The only suitable footwear to match the hosiery, she added, are flat ballerina shoes, with the writer adding that despite body shape, the rear end should always be covered by clothing to avoid any lecherous looks.

Perhaps most importantly, Average Josephine said: "Never wear white leggings. Or pink. Or anything lighter than black, brown or navy. Even the fittest of fashionistas could not pull off this look."

The Daily Mail last week commented on the rise of high-shine leggings, noting that despite them seeming so opposed to current fashion, sales are through the roof.
