Leggings are not pants.

I feel the need to get something off my chest. It has been bothering me for some time, and I just can't keep quiet any longer.

Leggings are NOT pants. It doesn't matter how skinny you are, or how nice your ass is. If you leave the house without pants on you need a fashion intervention. I know they make "denim leggings" now, but those are also not pants. Pants have, a zipper or buttons and enough material to not be see through when you bend over. Leggings are meant to be worn under some type of sweater or dress long enough to cover your ass.

Yes, when you bend over I can see right through your leggings along with everyone else in Starbucks. Your butt is fully on display; we can see your thong or lack there of. Unless you are in the privacy of your own home, pants are required. Furthermore, when it is 17 degrees outside, it makes not one bit of sense to me that you are wearing a nice warm fluffy coat, Uggs, and NO PANTS.?! Are you an idiot? Did you forget to look in the mirror before you left the house?

Don't even get me started on shiny fake snakeskin leggings, or leopard print/zebra/hot pink/metallic leggings. No. You will look at pictures of your outfit in a few years and cringe at the thought that you went there. Remember goucho pants? They were also not ok. Partly because my ass looked huge in them, but mostly because they are glorified pjs and should also only be worn in the comfort of your own home, unless you live with your boyfriend in which case just throw them away.

at least in the 80s people had the common decency to wear over-sized t-shirts and sweatshirts to cover their asses in leggings.
