But Leggings Are Pants



IMG_0404IMG_0451Boots and leggings 2014Chicago Fashion Blogger 2014Not to stir up any controversy and at the risk of being offensive, I’ve just got to put my feelings out there.  To me, leggings are pants.  Now, I know many of you will disagree with me, but I just think they are.  And I constantly wear them as such.  I have heard opinions on this vary widely from region to region just like our political views.  This heated debate!  For me, if I am going to wear a skirt over something, I can’t wear leggings, I have to wear tights instead.  I don’t want to go around with pants and a skirt on. My roommate vehemently disagrees, and so we have agreed to disagree.  I get the feeling that I am the minority in my thoughts of leggings standing on their own, but I can’t help it.  I like the look.  I think it creates a nice silhouette  Sometimes, I wear sweaters as dresses when they are clearly just long shirts, so really adding leggings to the mix is generally an upgrade.  Remember, the rules are meant to be broken 😉

  1. I agree with you. I think if you have the figure to pull it off or mix it with a sweater or billowy top, you are good to go. I like the color combination you have going here.

  2. I completely agree with this! Lots of my friends have this rule where they’ll only wear leggings if the shirt is covering their bum. Who really cares?! They’re no different than yoga pants with a skinny leg. Love the color you chose I might just have to get me a pair.

    1. Yes, I am definitely on the same page as you! And for some reason this color is awesome. I think in person they are so flattering, which is weird because they are basically skin color haha.

  3. I totally agree with u! I tend to wear leggings as pants too. It bothers me when people can’t tell the difference between leggings and tights tho, they use those terms interchangeably when there is a difference!
