Modern American history is littered with bad fashion ideas that took off.
And now we can add meggings
to the list.
Perhaps you're heard of them. Here are two examples:
Its champions say their products — a form-fitting, nut-hugging, crack-sticking pair of pants — are the natural offspring of skinny jeans. And while that may be the case, the men behind meggings
mistakenly believe their product is a fashion innovation. It's not. In fact, we've had meggings around for a long time.
The late great Freddie Mercury was a fan of them.
And so was Bruce Dickenson of Iron Maiden.
And David Lee Roth.
And for the longest time, they've been called spandex pants, and nobody — except the above three guys — has ever worn them and gotten away with it. Everybody else, well, they just end up looking like Peter Pan Man
. Or even worse, Tron Guy
. And nobody wants to look like that.
So please, don't wear meggings.
