Leggings In The School

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Panic everyone! Girls are walking around with the outlines of their panties showing! And while this practice isn't what my mother would call "proper ladylike demeanor," the personal choice of girls to wear leggings has come under attack. 

It's the result of a common misunderstanding that leggings are pants. They are not. Yet a few girls' confusion on whether or not leggings are pants should not ruin the true comfort and convenience of leggings for those who understand the difference. 

I ask you, school administrators, if you have ever tried to put on a pair of freshly dried jeans in the morning, after the bliss of wearing your lightweight, loose PJs. The shock of restriction can be depressing, Devastating, Morale-killing. There are simply some days I cannot mentally handle the thought of wearing pants. And it is at these moments of mental weakness that I turn to my knight in shining cotton-spandex-blend: leggings. 

I make this choice mainly because of the way leggings create a similar silhouette to pants -- one that cannot be achieved by wearing other trouser-alternatives such as shorts, skirts or dresses -- without creating the dreaded muffin top. 

In fact, if you're going to restrict anything, it should be the extremely distracting bulge that occurs when an individual has on a pair of too tight, too low-rise jeans. Muffin tops are universally uncomfortable and unflattering and should be banned as such.

Leggings, however, fulfill a niche within the wardrobe of every woman. They're neither pants nor tights. When paired with a tunic -- a top that covers the outline of a lady's underwear -- the resulting look is perfectly non-distracting, and shows less skin than shorts or skirts. It's flattering and a more slimming look than the extra thickness leggings would add under a skirt or dress -- the only way some schools want them to be worn. 

Ultimately, fashion is a form of self-expression, and students should be allowed to experiment with their personal style, especially during the formative years of middle and high school. 

Romwe Women's Colorful Enameled Flower Print Leggings is a legging which be popular with students. They all like the leggings with their long T-shirt, and I think this is good match for all students. Leggings are not the pants, they can show our student different appearance.

  1. Yeah, my only gripe with people wearing leggings as pants are the inevitable panty lines and / or bum crack line and camel toe! Eeek! hahaha But yeah, these can be solved with a top long enough to cover these :P
