I know is it almost summer, and I know you are probably not planning to wear your leggings until cool weather, but just in case you are tempted to bring them out and wear them as pants, I decided to repost this for my Throwback Thursday offering. It is kind of my pet fashion peeve.
I know you have heard this, but I am not sure it has actually penetrated into your consciousness. I saw you everywhere last winter. You were wearing your oh-so-comfy and oh-so-warm leggings. “Surely I can just wear them with my favorite top, even if it is a bit short,” you tell yourself. Maybe you say, “These are my workout clothes.” Great. But I don’t remember the last time I was in a gym, and I don’t think you are “working out” at Publix. “Even though I am older than dirt, I know I look so youthful in these tight,brightly patterned leggings,” you think.
Oh my! Please ask for an honest opinion before you walk out that door. Remember — it is hard to get an accurate view of the back of your outfit, even in a full-length mirror.
I’m sure I am not actually seeing you 😉 but maybe I am seeing your friends and family. If so, do them a favor, and show them these photos. They are examples of how not to wear leggings. These are all outfits that I have personally seen.
If you like to wear clothing that outlines your rear end, and calls attention to it, then leggings are for you! I don’t think I will ever head in that direction, fashion-wise 😉
