Latest trend for guys: Man tights
'Meggings' are 'taking the world by storm.'
Guard your leggings, ladies. Because men are hopping on board the trend of wearing tight, stretchy pants, too. So if they disappear from your closet this winter, you know where they might have gone.
According to an article written by the Business Insider, men’s leggings are no longer just reserved for ballet dancers and male models —they are now common among all trendsetting gents.

"'Megging,' as the male legging is known, is now all the rage in sartorial circles,” quotes the Insider. "Celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz have all been spotted wearing leggings, while fashion stores Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom are selling tights for men."
Apparently, the megging is creeping its way into fashionable men’s closets everywhere, serving as a replacement for the popular skinny jean trend that has become more common among males in the past few years.

"Male tights are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans," megging-wearer Mark Dorosz told the Insider. "I've always had good legs and it’s nice to show them off all year round. There are so many people wearing exotic clothes in New York that nobody cares about a man wearing leggings if it works for him."
And so far, Dorosz says the feedback has been nothing but positive. "Perhaps people will be laughing around this in 12 months’ time, but for now they come up to me and say, 'You look awesome.'"

While the debut of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel No.5 bottle bag surely adds yet another item to many a fashion follower’s sartorial bucket list, it also got us thinking about one of the brand’s other, ever-present offerings: the 2.55. The bag was first dreamed up by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the early 1920s when, ever-practical and tired of having to carry her bag in her hands, the designer took inspiration from soldiers’ packs and incorporated an extended strap into her own carryall. After World War II, she launched the quilted bag in earnest, in February 1955 putting a long, chain strap model forth (hence the name) and captivating women ever since.
2013 was a year full of firsts for me: I ran my longest distance (12 miles), learned how to cook and landed my dream job here at Lucky! Something else that surprisingly ranked high up on my list of personal accomplishments? Mastering a fishtail braid. I know what you’re thinking: After years of seeing all sorts of fancy braids on the runways and red carpet, a fishtail now seems like it’s one of the most basic styles. But no matter how many how-tos I read, my fingers just didn’t want to cooperate. It was finally thanks to Lucky’s video series where stylist David Diegez showed an easy video tutorial when I figured it out.
