Just when my eyes stopped burning from the sight of men in skinny jeans along comes Meggings. Leggings for Men……
I am speechless. Style experts say this fashion trend is going to take off in 2013. Translation: get ready to see some testicle hugging pants on men with no business wearing them.
Justin Bieber wore them at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Well, then that makes it okay? Justin Bieber is about as manly as, well, Justin Bieber.
I read an article that broke down the proper shirt to wear with Meggings. One expert recommends a crisp white button down long enough to cover your junk. Basically, they want you to dress like George Michael pre- sex in a bathroom, WHAM days. I dare you to wear that for a job interview in the Midwest. The thought of suburban Dads wearing Meggings to parent/teacher conferences makes me laugh out loud. I can’t believe what I am about to say, but I don’t even think (gulp) Ryan Gosling would look good in Meggings. Oh, who the hell am I kidding? He would look good in anything.
I have to admit that this is the first time I have seen meggings and that they are, well, weird. I can’t imagine my husband wearing these things and if he finds out that Justin Bieber wears them then there is even less chance of it.
