I had always hoped that as I got older I would remain tolerant and open minded to fashion and believe me I like clothes that are made of that stretch like material (especially as I can squeeze into a size smaller and fool myself)! However, I seem to be having difficulty with the clothing referred to as ‘Leggings’. You see them everywhere in the shops, in all sorts of colours and loads of people wear them, but I have this nagging doubt. Whilst some seem to be made of thicker fabric, others seem very thin, so much so that you can actually see what type of underwear that is being worn! I figure that this is either because thats the intention, or the material has been stretched beyond what the manufacturer expected! Either way I just want to shout ‘where the hell is your skirt’. Is it just me aren’t they nothing more than tights (cut off at the ankles) or just a rehash of what was known as long johns worn by elderly men?
