New Menswear Trend: Meggings?


As if men wearing the urban skirt (shirt tied around the waist) and mandals weren’t odd enough, the fashion world is ushering in a new trend: man leggings.

Leggings for women are controversial enough as many fashion critics and bloggers have deemed that they’re nor really “pants.” But now men can jump in on this trend and trade in their Rick Owens hard denim for the comfort of “meggings.” Instead of donning a pair of skinny jeans, some guys can now opt for skintight tights that come in black, stripes and animal prints.

Since the fabric isn’t strong (or manly) enough to have pockets don’t fret as you can place your most prized belongings in a man bag. Fashion critic, Robert Johnson, says meggings aren’t for everybody. Essentially, if you haven’t been shooting in the gym lately or have a case of man hips please do us all a favor and don’t wear meggings. Please.

GQ, the manliest mens magazine, had one thing to say about this trend: “No.” We here at VIBE aren’t the biggest fans of this trend but if anyone wants to give it go, by all means do so. But we can’t help but wonder what’s next for men’s fashion. Meels maybe?
