After taking Manhattan by storm and being seen on celebrities like Justin Bieber, the trend has now crossed the Atlantic to be embraced by British blokes like X Factor star Rylan Clark.
But are you ready to see your man in a female fashion staple? We asked two people for their thoughts!
Yes, says Gary Kingsnorth, editor and founder of thestyleking.com
As editor of thestyleking.com, I'm all for pushing the boundaries. So I say a resounding 'yes' to 'meggings'!
It's not a new idea – Mick Jagger wore them so they have bona fide rock 'n' roll credentials.
However, the lad in question probably needs to be young to get away with wearing them – great legs would also be helpful.
They won't work on anybody with a little extra weight around the middle, which probably rules out most men over 30.
On the plus side, they are extremely comfortable and can actually be a practical styling option in the cold weather for the cool and edgy lad-about-town.
Why should girls be the only ones allowed to enjoy the comforts of leggings? It is all about physique and for guys with the right slim shape then they should work very well with the key items such as Dr Marten boots and a vintage leather biker jacket.
They are favourites at festivals, either as fancy dress or for wannabe rock stars. Last year at Bestival, guys were spotted in an array of leopard-print and tribal-print meggings – it was all just part of the shenanigans. It is a trend that's here to stay.
However, ladies: lock up your leggings! A friend of mine first noticed hers had been borrowed when she saw a picture on Facebook of her brother wearing her leopard-print pair at a festival. Pack him off to Selfridges or Topman for styles made specifically for guys!
Tell him to stick to plain black and he should be fine.
No, says Lucy Moon, Reveal's Fashion Assistant
I'm open to new fashion trends, but the latest American craze of men's leggings, dubbed 'meggings', has me cringing in my leather-looks.
Since celebrities such as teen idol Justin Bieber and rocker Lenny Kravitz had a go at the trend, meggings have crept onto our high street awaiting a string of men ready to show off what they've got.
The only men I want to see in leggings are Robin Hood and ballet dancers. Not my boyfriend, brother or especially my dad – please God, no!
I embraced men in skinny jeans – I actually prefer them to straight cuts, but men in tights is a step too far. What next, men in bra tops and high heels?
Men should stick to their own fashions – why do they need to steal ours? First male skinnies, then male Spanx – come on, guys, be a little more original.
Plus, where would they keep their wallets? Before you know it, your man will be stealing your handbag.
Then there's the problem of the bulge – or, maybe more embarrassingly – no bulge!
All I can say is if my boyfriend turns into a proud 'megger' he won't be getting any compliments from me. Mainly because I'll be secretly jealous that his legs look a damn sight better than mine in a pair.
