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?

    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! :-/ :(
