Say what you will about the menswear designers who show in Milan, but you can't say they're not accommodating when it comes to options. This spring, menswear designers have pushed the envelope and adapted the women's leggings phenomenon and made: meggings! We saw them in a variety of fabrics (including leather), cut in different lengths to be worn in varying ways. Paired with oversized shirts, jackets and trenches, some were also worn under shorts. If designers have their way, men will be opening up their closets to these meggings; whether or not the world outside of the fashion industry will pull on a pair remains to be seen.
