Leggings 'continue to live on'
Many people thought leggings had their day a long time ago, yet strangely enough, they're more popular than ever, according to a fashion writer.

Lisa Armstrong of the Times said that while many thought the likes of Lady Gaga and designer Nicholas Ghesquiere were simply reviving a dying trend over the last two years, they continue to sell in vast quantities.

She explained that the likes of River Island sold 750,000 pairs of leggings in the last 12 months while Marks & Spencer are selling a pair a minute in their stores.

Ms Armstrong attempted to explain why they were so popular, stating their flexibility as a major issue and how it is possible to wear them "under dresses, tunics, oversized boyfriend jackets, baggy T-shirts, mini-kilts, cocktail dresses and other ingenious thigh-concealers".

Last week, Clare Smith, a fashion assistant at Cosmopolitan, described leggings as a "wardrobe staple".
