However, before the acquisition of this trendy thing, many women ask questions about what to wear leggings with what items of the wardrobe they can be combined to look stylish and modern.

- In the 80s years of the last century the designer with the world name Karl Lagerfeld unexpectedly gave leggings a second chance to exist. These were rebellious years, a challenge to bourgeoisness, classics and the standard of life. Not surprisingly, the youth enthusiastically embraced the idea of a great couturier. As a rule, synthetic, shiny, poisonous colors leggings wore with shapeless sweaters or t-shirts. They looked, according to current standards, funny and not quite aesthetically, but completely corresponded to the spirit of the times.
