Reminder: Leggings Are Not Pants

leggings are not pants

We’ve said it before, but the message bears repeating: LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS. We repeat: NOT PANTS. Yes, they may belong to the “pants” family, true. But they are NOT PANTS. They should not be worn as pants. It doesn’t matter how great your legs are, ¬†or how “comfy” the leggings: THEY ARE NOT PANTS.

Especially not these ones:

leggings are not pants

These ones are particularly Not Pants. Not even close.

Are you getting the message that LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS, folks? Good. Now let us never speak of this again.

    I like them, not as pants, and not for $38 lmao. I could probably find them for around $15 on ebay.

    Are these even leggings?? Look like sheer striped-patterned hose to me…

    I know its the norm to walk around half-naked, at least in America, but isn’t this a little too extreme?

    Eh, normally I totally agree with the whole leggings =/= pants thing but in this the model’s shirt is long enough that I think it’s okay – it’s only a few centimeters short of being a dress (if that – it covers everything a dress would need to cover).
