By now, you probably know that wearing cotton leggers is a thing of the past.
The American women’s clothing brand Cotton Bralette has announced that it will no longer be offering the summertime trend, which has been popular for years.
The brand’s statement comes as other fashion brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Christian Louboutin have also announced that they are abandoning the trend, along with retailers like Forever 21, which had been selling leggier styles.
The move comes as a response to rising costs in the industry, particularly as consumers begin to shop online and at the store.
In June, Forever 21 said it would end sales of its leggiest styles, and in August, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s announced that the styles were being discontinued.
While the brand’s decision has been welcomed by fans, others have questioned the move.
“I was always a cotton legging fan,” Jeannette Gentry, a former Fashionista and the founder of the brand Beyond Me, told Glamour.
“Now that I see how many other brands are doing this, I really want to know what’s going on behind the scenes.”
A spokesperson for Cotton Brale told BuzzFeed News that the brand will continue to sell its leggy styles and that it has no plans to pull the styles from its stores.
“As Cotton Brala says, it is our job to continue to offer quality, innovative, fun, and affordable legginess in the fall and winter, so we are taking the opportunity to offer all of our customers the best leggie possible,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson also clarified that Cotton Brallette’s leggiers are “designed for a range of comfort and fit,” which will be reflected in the brands new colors.
“We’ve added a new color for Fall, which we are proud to announce as our Fall 2017 release,” the statement read.
“Our fall color is a deep and vibrant navy-grey, which is an absolute must-have for all cotton leggy fans.”
But what about those other women who have been wearing cotton pants for years?
The spokesperson told BuzzFeed that Cotton Blanche is continuing to sell the leggic styles, but that they will no be made in their stores.
The statement reads: “With Cotton Blaerie, we take pride in bringing the best quality and craftsmanship in the marketplace.
We continue to take great pride in our commitment to our customers and our brand and we’re excited to bring the Cotton Blacher style back to our stores.
