Even though she has yet to show any hint of a baby bump, speculation about Kate Middleton‘s maternity wear is going strong. Well, now we know at least one article of clothing that the mom-to-be is on the lookout for, and it’s just as practical as you might expect from a Duchess who swipes her Starbucks card for her morning latté, makes trips to the grocery store, and carries around a stack of points cards while shopping on the high street: jeggings.

Jeggings, jeggings, jeggings. We’ve endorsed them time and again. Even Goldman Sachs endorsed them! You know who doesn’t endorse them? Uptight British school teachers, that’s who!
This week’s fashion news was full of good haircuts (like Julian Assange‘s), bad accounting (like American Apparel‘s) and even worse outfits from the past (like, well, just keep reading). If you’ve missed any fashion news this week, read on.
