Unsolved Mysteries: The Peplum Leggings by Costume Dept.

Hmmm. Peplum leggings. Peplum leggings. Now why do you think leggings would need a peplum, readers? After all, we all know leggings are not pants, so surely the peplum would be rendered redundant by the long top you’d be forced to wear with these in order to preserve some dignity, and prevent embarrassing outbreaks of camel toe? Surely?

Unless… unless THESE leggings ARE supposed to be worn as pants? Pants with a peplum. And lace inserts down the legs. And… your butt hanging out the back of the aforementioned peplum:

Aaargh! Peplum leggings! They’re the new enemy! Run, don’t walk…

    I saw these on 80’s Purple’s website and knew that they would end up here. They are just….horrid.

    Who wants a tiny skirty thing that doens’t cover anything attached to a legging? It makes no sense.

    Fashion is supposed to be art, but these are taking it too far.

    I think these would draw more attention to any camel toe. And that shiny lycra and lace is so elegant, not trashy at all… 😉
