I was walking from the gym, clad in sweats, hiding under a baseball cap like I was a Kardashian when a woman brushed by me in a pair of thin leggings. I noticed that she had a rear end that wars were probably fought over, something I noticed since I have one that won't even cause a schoolyard fight let alone a world war. I wasn't the only one who noticed, though. The way the masses parted while men crained necks, rolled eyes and all but passed out as she walked by was incredible. Hysterical actually.
One of my best friends has the best ass I've ever seen. She works out constantly to have the derrière. It's the kind of booty that would make anyone do a couple extra lunges or take the stairs. Several weeks ago, we went to a friends party and this girl had thee nerve to wear denim leggings. She swore they were jeans, but they weren't. And boy or boy. I'm straight and I wouldve tapped that ass. I wasn't the only one who was enthralled either.
And finally, this past weekend my boy and I were about to head out for a night in the streets. I was getting dressed and when I asked if the outfit was cool, he said, "I'm always a fan of leggings." Yup, I had on a pair shiny leggings that give even little-booty me a looker.
Leggings are a great, simple fashion trend, one that isn't in style just because of their comfort and cute-match-everything factor. They're definitely flying off shelves and stomping down the streets of NYC because of the effects leggings have on men and women love it. What it boils down to is the fact that men are, for the zillionth time, very simple creatures. All they need are a basic pair of leggings to help them on their way.
