What you hate other person might dig.
Regardless, I would like to point out that leggins are rarely
taking part on the catwalk. Dense tights yes, but rarely leggins.
The problem is, most people don't really care what goes on the runway and wear what is offered and what is comfortable for them. Leggins might be a local fad. I am seeing so many girls in them here. (>.<)
Fashion, in its essence, isn't anything else than a form of expressing yourself, a form of saying "This is who I am" without saying a word. Whether you are a Gentleman, whether you are a true Lady, whether you call yourself a geek, you can get all that across with the choices you make towards your clothing and general appearance, either in the "in your face" way or a much more subtle.
Problem is, behind the iron curtain this culture of taking care of one's appearance wasn't particularly nurtured - it was actually frowned upon. Any kind of standing out was punished one way or another and clothing was no exception. So people adopted this "whatever falls out of the wardrobe" way of dressing up and lost any kind of style or taste they or their parents might have had.
Anyway, luckily for you, leggins aren't part of this year's runway
, nor were they last year
So hopefully the trend is dying. I hope it's a quick yet painful death.
