The Unwritten Rules on Leggings

Leggings. I love them. I don't care what anyone else says about them. I know a lot of people who are "anti-leggings." And we've all heard it a million times, "LEGGINGS AREN'T PANTS!" True, I don't think that leggings are pants, BUT...

Leggings are perfectly fine.

*(If worn properly that is.)*

As women, we should all be aware of the unwritten rules on leggings. Didn't know there were rules? Well I'm here to tell you them today.


Rule #1: Leggings must be worn under the right circumstances. Planning to go to prom? Don't wear leggings. Planning on going to dinner with friends? It's okay to wear leggings. 

Rule #2: Leggings must be worn with a top that covers one's booty. A common mistake for a lot of women. But your top needs to be long enough. No one needs to see your rear end. Even if you think it's cute, it's not to those of us who have to see it in the produce section. It looks like you should be hanging out at Walmart. But then again, maybe that's where I found the inspiration for this rule. 

Rule #3: Leggings must be worn accordingly to one's body type. I think that every woman has the right to wear leggings (I mean hello, women's rights duh). But I think AS WOMEN, we should know what is appropriate for our body types. Let's remember to leave some things to the imagination. People shouldn't have to see all your "goodies."

Rule #4: Leggings must be worn only as leggings, not as tights. Tights are completely different from leggings. My husband, Andrew, commonly mistakes the two (it's ok, honey). Tights are to be worn with properly termed dresses & skirts (not tunics, long tops, sweaters, etc.). Tights are typically more sheer than leggings & have feet in them. Remember, leggings & tights are two different things.

Rule #5: Leggings must be thick enough so no one can see through them. I have a variety of different thicknesses of leggings. Of course, I have lighter-weight ones for spring & summer, but I also have thicker ones that are fleece lined & such for fall & winter. As long as you wear thick enough ones where no one can see what color & pattern your undergarments are, I think it is a-okay. Keeping in mind rule #2 though.

There you have it, 5 simple unwritten (now written) rules on leggings. I think modesty is important, & I believe it can totally be achieved while wearing leggings. Also, there are way too many, much more important things going on in our world today rather than the topic of "should women be wearing leggings?" As long as you know the rules, I think you can rock the leggings trend. Plus, they're so comfy, who wouldn't want to wear them?

What do you think? Are you pro-leggings or anti-leggings?
