Leggings: Living on borrowed time?
Leggings are still on the scene long after people believed they would exit the fashion world, causing one source to question why people still see them as an essential legwear accessory.

FemaleFirst explained that over two years ago, leggings were seen as a high-street staple and found their way into most wardrobes around the country, combining a slimming effect on the thighs with a protective thickness which does not show underwear through them.

It continued: "It wasn't long before leggings became a must-have wardrobe item and they even evolved from plain black to brightly coloured, wet look and even denim styles."

However, FemaleFirst still questions whether the fashion is living on borrowed time, though many may believe them to be the most flexible clothing in their wardrobe.

Lisa Armstrong, speaking to the Times earlier this month, explained that Lady Gaga and similar stars continue to give a glamorous side to leggings, prolonging their stylish life.
