@Mrs.KMM:  Um yeah, two separate women in my workplace consistently wear leggings as pants.  I cringe everytime I see it.  We have pervy old guys at my work who I’m sure get off on it but still.  Ugh.

I don’t wear leggings with dresses (I wear tights) but I wear long tanks/sweaters/etc. with leggings.  As long as my butt is covered, I think it’s fine.

ETA: From what I understand, there is a difference between leggings and tights.  Tights are thick pantyhose that I wear to work with suits.  Leggings are thin sweatpant-esque material.

My little sister does this, it drives me insane.  I just don’t need to see that much of her body.

ETA: I don’t remember who it was but another bee posted this picture and I thought it was funny!

SO AGREE! I go to a Mormon school with a strict dress code, and this STILL happens, and it does NOT look good on anyone! Except maybe models, but most of us do not look like that.

@Mrs.KMM:  I feel like if I can see the curvature of a girl’s body as if she was naked, then it’s inappropriate. Also, so many of the girls aren’t necessarily toned – not that they’re fat, that’s different, but wearing leggings as pants – you see EVERYTHING. You need to be extremely fit to make them look good even!

When I was in undergrad the most common outfit around campus was leggings, ugg boots, sweatshirt and hair in a VERY messy bun right in the middle of their head. I don’t know how these girls thought it was “cute” but it looked so unprofessional. Even if it is undergrad.

I wish I had a referee flag to throw for ‘Inappropriate Use of Leggings.’ 5 yards. Of fabric. NOW!

tights =/= leggings =/= pants

They are all different!!!  You can SEE THROUGH tights.  You can’t see through leggings but you still need to cover your crotch & crack.  Pants are a completely different category of clothing than tights (which you wear under dresses or skirts) and leggings (which you can wear under a tunic top or long sweater).

@indibee:  Hahahaha!!!  Too funny!

I agree, if you’re going to wear leggings, cover your butt completely!

Guh. Welcome to america’s college campus. leggings with uggs and an oversized v neck. That’s the uniform. 

They are super comfy though – to lounge in. Not to go out in public in. I mean, they created jeggings and pajama jeans for a reason.

What if they are thick and sturdy and non-camel toe and not see through like lululemon?

I know what you mean, it bothers me when they are cheap and see through. But I wear super lulu’s and they aren’t as flimsy

Eh to each their own. I rock my leggings with long sweaters and long shirts and boots and sorry I see this as an outfit everywhere. Not everyone is going to agree. If people want to judge; go right ahead. 🙂
