meggings Page 1
Meggings are the zombies of menswear trends. They’re terrifying to look at, they pop up in really random places, and they never die. The term (and the ludicrous idea that they would ever, actually, in real life, become a trend) has been around since at least 2010, when they were seen walking down the Milan Men’s Fashion Week runways. And today they made their inaugural appearance on Anderson Live.
In all honesty, it doesn’t take much to make a male model look good. A loin cloth usually works. But nonetheless, menswear designers (for the most part anyways) have overwhelmingly stuck to the straight and narrowly tailored. You know: suit, tie, solids, yawn. But this season, Milan got a little wacky. In fact, between all the meggings (male leggings), man-dals (with and without socks), and some body jewelry that would have made a “Faith” era George Michael blush, we started to wonder what was going on and, more importantly, if “Blue Steel” was strong enough to withstand it.
