I came late to the cult of leggings. For the longest time, I was one of those people who swore that leggings were not pants, and should not be worn as such. I might wear a pair of leggings with a skirt or dress, but never on their own. I was just never comfortable with the idea of all of my business being on display through thin, tight fabric.
But I still like to be comfortable. I don’t like a lot of pants and jeans because they’re tight and uncomfortable and unforgiving. So for the longest time, I wore a lot of skirts, dresses, tights, and stretchy jeans, because they were the most comfortable things I could find. They were also more in line with the way that I like to dress, which is reasonably modest. I’ve never been one to show a lot of skin, and tend to favor looser clothes.
Somehow though, I started to see the upside of leggings. I don’t have to dress very professionally on a daily basis, since I work in a public library. And they go great with a long sweater, which I’m a fan of. I still don’t wear them so that my business is on display, because that makes me uncomfortable. But as long as my butt is covered, I’m definitely on board with leggings. Really, there’s no reason not to be comfortable, and they look good too.
What do you think? Are you a fan of leggings or should they be for exercise only? Let me know in the comments.
