“At this point, leggings are life.” - Vogue Culture Writer Michelle Ruiz. The quote mentioned before says it all. If that wasn't all here's another quote by Vogue Market Editor Alexandra Gurvitch - “If I could wear one thing for the rest of my life, it would be leggings...”. Leggings, for the curios out there, are close-fitting trousers, that are mostly made out of a stretch fabric. They can be worn as an extra covering for the lower legs over your normal bottom-wear or can be worn directly. Well, since we are already past the 20th century, leggings are worm mostly because they afford us easy to move in, shapely, and comfortable bottom-wear - most worn when working out or working in.
