The rules for wearing leggings as pants.

I’m here to talk about a topic as controversial as politics and religion.  I referenced it in a previous post, and I know ya’ll have strong opinions on this:

Are leggings pants? I think so.

Some of you just vomited, others don’t understand the seriousness of this topic.  It’s extremely complex, there are rules.. but the verdict in my opinon is that leggings are pants.

It’s how you wear them, that determines whether they should be pants on you.

RULE #1

IF I CAN SEE THE CREVICES AND IMPRINT OF YOUR CELLULITE, THEY ARE NOT PANTS.

Poor, poor, girl on the google image results of “leggings as pants”…  I’m sure she desired fame, but this wasn’t the way to get it.  Hopefully she learned her lesson. Doll, if you are reading this and think that I just gave you permission to look this way, you’re mistaken. These are not pants.

RULE #2

STAY AWAY FROM COLORED LEGGINGS AS PANTS, TIGHTS, ETC. (UNLESS YOU’RE THIS GUY, IN WHICH CASE MORE PLEASE)

This fellow above was blessed with the gift of being able to wear leggings and nobody thinking twice.  He’s probably foreign.  Here in America the odds of you having Señor Booty’s nice build is pretty unlikely therefore -stay away.

RULE #3

CROP TOPS AND LEGGINGS. JUST DON’T.

I’ve picked a hideous camo print outfit to further prove my point. Crop tops and leggings shouldn’t be a thing.  This lovely lady has been airbrushed beyond belief and she still can’t handle it.

RULE #4

CLASSY NOT TRASHY

Cover your bits and pieces.  Focus on the accessories and make the leggings work with you -not make you look like a working girl. #sorrynotsorry

RULE #5

MATERIAL MATTERS

ponte

I love ponte pants.  Buy a pair.  Or 6.  Ponte pants are the in-between of leggings and real pants.   I own around 10 pairs.. some with belt loops and pockets, others with none.  They are the ideal bottom for New York winters. My favorites are from Ann Taylor.

What are your feelings on leggings as pants?
