I knew as soon as the cold air hit my bare legs this morning, that dreaded time had come: leggings season. The wardrobe staples, which are not quite pants not quite tights, are especially prevalent this time of year since they’re comfortable and warm. But as convenient as they are for transitioning, they are apparently difficult to wear without committing several heinous fashion faux pauxs. One trip to the mall, or even the club, and you’ll find these offensive visual attacks are everywhere you turn. They’re so bad, in fact, we wanted to get rid of leggings altogether. But instead, we’re offering this plea to the legging-wearing public:

-Please don’t wear white panties under dark leggings.

Unless you’re the type that likes for your panties to show through your clothes completely, err on the dark side so you don’t flash everyone behind you. This also applies to panty lines.

-No more camel toe!

Camel toe is an epidemic. No pants should be so tight that your pom pom is on full display. Is that even healthy?

-Stay away from see-through leggings.

While we don’t like to see panties, we hate seeing a woman’s bottom half on full display as well only covered by a pair of sheer leggings. Go for the opaque and again, dark underwear is your friend.


What leggings faux pauxs do you see out and about, Clutchettes and Gents?

    Leggings ARE NOT pants & while we’re at it flip flops are not shoes.

    if you have no butt don’t wear leggings if you have a very large behind don’t wear leggings unless you have a shirt long enough to cover your behind because people with flat behinds and people with extremely large behinds both look really disgusting in leggings

    I just need ladies to realize tights, leggings, and stockings are not the same. It drives me crazy when I see girls wearing stockings as leggings, that thigh line where it goes into the private region is the tall tale sign. Leggs stockings from your local walmart is not an alternative for leggings!!

    Yes, leggings are not pants, specifically not jeans, thus they should not be worn as often as jeans.

    If you have a big stomach, it looks bad when you wear leggings with a tight top, especially if it is short….well, nobody should be wearing a little t-shirt with leggings, but that especially is true if you are overweight. Along the same lines, get leggings that fit. Just because they stretch does not mean one size fits all.

    We can avoid all of this if leggings are NOT worn as pants. I have this conversation with my sister and niece all the time you wear leggings with tunics and other tops that are past your butt.

    YAASS Barbara! Get the folks together!

    Keep the flip flops at the community showers, pools, and beaches folks. I’ve been saying this for years.

    I feel like leggings can be worn as pants if done tastefully meaning if there is no cleavage showing and no mid drift. People dont complain when guys where shirts that are too tight for their large stomachs or pants so tight we can see their junk! :-/ :(
