Weighing in on the Controversy

CAN LEGGINGS BE WORN AS PANTS, OR CAN'T THEY? I've seen as much heated debate about this topic on every major social media outlet as I have about SOPA, ObamaCare, and abortion.  (This does not speak well of our nation's priorities.  Or maybe it doesn't speak well of my friends?  No, that can't be it...)

As far as I can tell there are two types of people in the world.  Those who believe leggings can be worn as pants, and those who don't.  And I am about to cast my vote publicly.

Right here, right now.

Wait for it...

Leggings CAN be worn as pants.*

*provided that all the junk in the trunk is covered by some kind of shirt and/or cardigan. 

Go ahead.  Send me your impassioned objections.  I can handle it.

Allow me to demonstrate.



In sum,

When I was in college and the leggings under skirts & shorts thing started sneaking back into mainstream fashion, I said "I will NEVER do that."

And now I wear them as pants.

It's a slippery slope.
