I’m so excited to be bringing you weekly articles on what’s in this season in the fashion world for men. This week, I’ve chosen a relatively controversial item of clothing that has exploded into the men’s fashion world – meggings!

Meggings are essentially leggings designed for men but they have caused quite a stir in the media, particularly in the UK, for their concept and general appearance.

Personally, I don’t really care what people wear, if it makes them feels good, go for it! BUT, don’t expect to see me wearing a pair of meggings any time soon! I really appreciate that they are genuinely breaking some boundaries in everyday men’s fashion, but I just don’t think I could work them…

They come in an endless selection of designs and patterns and have been featured on catwalks worldwide. They have even been worn by celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Harry Styles.

Female bloggers and TV personalities etc have made their dislike towards this new trend very obvious and it has even been reported that most women would not want to see a pair of meggings on their man.

You can purchase a pair of Meggings on sites such ASOS and Amazon; there are even sites specifically for Meggings such as meggingsman.com !

Let us know what you think of this new trend in the men’s fashion! Would you wear a pair or will you be staying a long distance away from the meggings rail at clothes stores?
