Leggings Are NOT Pants


This shouldn't be any sort of news flash, but after spotting far too many pant-less girls and seeing leggings grouped under "pants" on target.com, I felt a post was necessary.


Leggings are not pants. They hug every inch of your body, and made of spandex, they thin when stretched out, meaning we can see your underwear (or lack thereof) when you bend over. With pants, this does not happen.

Leggings are appropriate under skirts, dresses, and in some cases, long tunics. If you wouldn't wear that tunic or long t-shirt without pants, then don't wear it with leggings because again, leggings are not pants.

Thank you!! Though I must confess, sometimes I get lazy and wear shirts that are a little too short for leggings.

You don't know how many times I've wanted to yell that at the sorority girls at SDSU.

I hate the leggings as pants trend! I saw a girl on the train this morning in leggings and a cropped peacoat. I wanted to ask her if she was in a rush and forgot to put on a skirt.

A professor at Chapman/Chapman Grad Student has a blog entirely about this, you should check it out, it's hilarious:

As someone who lived thru leggings the first time around, I salute you. Leggings. Are not. Pants. However, you may be fighting a losing battle on behalf of good taste.
