Random Fashion Quiz: Who Claims To Have Invented The Leggings?

Now you have someone to blame. This designer claims he/she invented the leggings. Guesses? Find out after the jump!A: None other than Patricia Field. We were reminded of this by the cute Fashion IQ challenges periodically tweeted by the New York Times’ The Moment blog, which explains in its most recent tweet that the “Sex and the City” stylist takes credit for the style: “Patricia Field claims to have invented the contemporary form of leggings in the 1970s.” Contemporary, maybe. But we’d argue that Shakespeare was walking around in a pair of stretchies long, long before. That’s right. Blame Shakespeare. T-shirts coming to a novelty shop near you soon. [Patricia Field]
