We don’t know who Pamela Mann (or Tights Please for that matter) are trying to kid by labelling these as ski pants, but we can clearly see that they are tights. And if you refer back to the Fashion Police rules, you will recall that leggings are not pants and tights are not leggings. Meaning that tights cannot possibly be pants.
However, that is not what we are debating here, valid point though it is. The ‘on trial’ in question is the style of tights which are not quite footless, not quite footed: the ski pant tights that hook neatly under your foot. What do you think of these readers? Are they the answer to wearing sandals with tights? Do they stop your leg looking stumpy as footless tights often can make them look? Or are they just a crime of fashion that should be banished to our jail as soon as possible?
These tights come in red, blue and black, and are available here for £5.99.
