British fashion blogger Lauren Bravo follows up last month's hilarious rant about "classic" pieces with an equally amusing screed against leggings. A sample: "People are wearing leggings with t-shirts. With blouses. With cropped tops even. Whether it's deliberate fashion anarchy or just that everybody has forgotten the rule, I'm not sure. Or perhaps it's because, in these times of recessionista thrift, we can now pass off three millimetres of clingy spandex as 'trousers', like they used to make birthday cakes out of hat boxes in the war."
