Many different items of clothing seem to become more popular after someone takes a pair of scissors to them, with hosiery
being no exception in the new fashion market, it is said.
Deidre Wengen of phillyBurbs.com explained that celebrities and fashion designers are beginning to embrace the fashion, such as legwear
stalwart Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga and Rihanna - though it is a style that's worth questioning, she emphasised.
She said that she particularly enjoys such edgy fashion choices, especially when they seem to exhibit an element of fun.
Ms Wengen continued: "However, I find it hard to believe that women are spending money on pre-cut leggings
when you can probably just create a DIY version for half the cost."
One person who caused a little controversy with her choice of hosiery this month is Lily Allen, who wore tights
, bunny ears and nothing else in a topless photoshoot for i-D magazine.
