The past few years have seen the return of leggings. We either love them or hate them. I mean I do like them, I think they are that go to wardrobe item when you just want to feel comfortable and less restricted than say wearing a pair of jeans. Now my reason behind this post is lately, my eyes have been offended by what I've seen some girls/ladies turning up in. I'm not saying you have to be a specific size to wear leggings as it's down to personal preference, but I'm sure we all own at least one mirror in our house. Even if you don't own a mirror, you could always ask a real friend.
There is no need to be wearing see-through leggings with short tops where your knickers (underwear) are on display. On most occasions, the knickers are the most unflattering known to man. I mean can we all agree that this just isn't a good look? I think if you've bought leggings and you know that the material is really thin (you can test it by putting your hand in it and if you can see your hand..voila...it's thin!) you shouldn't wear a short top with it. I just don't think it's classy and you end up giving off the wrong impression. Even if you don't want to wear a long top, all you need is a top long enough to cover your crotch & derrière. I don't think the rest of the world is interested in seeing your torn, undersized polka dot knickers.
I think people "forget" that leggings aren't trousers or jeans. A simple rule is; if you can't susbsitute your leggings with tights, then you shouldn't be wearing that outfit. If you wouldn't feel comfortable wearing just tights with that top, then why are you wearing it??? Having said all of this, I guess we should be grateful that they are at least wearing knickers...*shudder*!
What are your thoughts on the see-through leggings debate?
