Leggings - Not pants People!!!!!

I read a great article by Claire Davies in yesterday's STM Magazine re my latest pet hate - leggings worn as pants! It went something like this: Leggings with butt on show only to the gym, Leggings covered by tunic or dress - chic combination.

I don't know what is happening lately but as winter approaches and the extra kilos pile on it seems I'm seeing more and more women opting to wear leggings as pants. They are on show everywhere at shopping centres, movies and even dinner on a Saurday night, next time you're out and about make sure you take note.

OK so listen up ladies here is the lowdon, leggings are not to be worn as a staple item but as an accessory similiar to a bag or a scarf and in my opinion they are best worn beneath a tunics, dresses, oversized tees/shirts or even skirts. Never ever under any circumstance should they be worn with shorter-style t-shirts, jackets or God forbid the crop-top (who the heck wears these anyway)!

In finishing the two little rules to remember:
1. Leggings with singlets and shorter style tops great for working out and must only be seen at gyms or during outdoor EXERCISE activities.
2. Leggings as an accessory only I repeat only under TUNICS, DRESSES, OVERSIZED TEES. For a great winter look team them up with boots, tunic and scarf - PERFECTO!

Do not follow Lindsay's lead and wear leggings with a little top - WRONG!

  1. I know what you mean, you see it all the time. It's not a good look at all.
