I never got onboard the skinny jeans trend, but took to the leggings resurgence like a duck to water. Between aerobics, cycling, running, and dance, I’ve had a spandex-clad butt for most of my life. Personally, I never have had a problem with leggings worn as pants, but the maxim this time around seems to be that they must be paired with a top that hangs to at least the crotch. As the trend wears on, though, I’ve seen that rule broken more and more often.
What do you think? Are leggings as pants ever okay?
Cardigan, Mossimo (thrifted). Tank, Mossimo (not thrifted). Leggings, Danskin. Boots, Diba. Earrings, No Boundaries.
Honestly, I put this outfit on in the morning with tap class in mind (minus the sweater and boots). It was so comfortable, though, that I continued to wear it the rest of the day, including to the Kenwood mall. If you aren’t familiar with Cincinnati, Kenwood is the “fancy” mall with the Nordstrom, MAC, and Bebe. I expected to stick out in my leggings-as-pants, but found that I wasn’t the only one sporting this look. However, I admit, I was the only woman over 25 doing so.
