Why Did You Wear That: Leggings!
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

Now it’s time to discuss one of my favorite topics… leggings. Leggings are the new sweatpants, the new Juicy tracksuit. (Thank god).  Anyway, while leggings are a much more chic way to stay comfortable, it has come to my attention that many people abuse the right to wear leggings. Below I will walk you through some of the Do’s and Don’ts of leggings:

  • Leggings are NOT pants. If they don’t have pockets and they don’t have a fly, they are not pants. Please cover your hoo-ha when wearing leggings.
  • White leggings will never fly unless you are a ballerina or dressed in costume and even then, this is treacherous territory.
  • Please stop wearing leggings with open toe pumps. All this makes me think of is the Meatpacking District on a Saturday night.
  • Black is always best. Avoid bright colors unless you are 5’10, 110lbs.
  • Just because Lindsay says it’s cool, doesn’t always mean it is.
  • Lastly, and most importantly, let’s face it… not every trend is meant for every person. Be honest with yourself, if it doesn’t look good, skip it.
Shirt is too short. Would be a cute look with the sneakers if she covered her snatch.
No. No, no, no!
This is an appropriate length for a top worn with leggings. I prefer a boot, but flats work as well.
Now go put some pants on.
