It's official - a certain style of ladies' leg wear is back in fashion, thanks to technological developments that help them to fulfil a variety of roles.Leggings
can now be worn as "pants" - trousers to you and me - as well as at the gym, when out on the town or just lounging around the house, according to US paper the Bangor Daily News.
The resurgence of leggings
is partly due to advances in fabric technology since their last big vogue in the '80s, Heather van Frankenhuyzen of the Art Institute of Seattle in Washington said.
"Back then, they really didn't have the synthetic fabrics that wear and feel like ours today," she told the newspaper.
"So often in the '80s, the leggings
tended to be slightly baggy or loose."
The revival of the fashion has been embraced by celebrities like Victoria Beckham, who was recently spotted by Gossipcenter.com at Heathrow Airport in black leggings
