I Still Can’t Stop Wearing Leggings as Pants

No zippers, no buttons, no problem


I would say more, but do I really need to? I am embarrassed at the number of times I have brought up how much I like wearing leggings over the course of the last few months, not because I am actually wearing them but because I refuse to move on. How self-centered can a single person be? Until I receive some version of a dramatic reaction from you, I fear I will never invite zippers and buttons back onto my crotch. (Not the worst thing.) Until then, I will commit myself to elastic bands and tiny ankle holes, see:

Exhibit A

A curiously literal manifestation of leggings as pants, because they’re not even trying to masquerade as anything more (or less) than athletic apparel. Here, they’re styled with a blazer and cardigan, both of which say, “I’m serious about this,” as well as sheer shin-length socks and suede loafers, which say, “Hello, and welcome to AOL Moviefone.”

Here, the inclusion is a bit more nuanced — that is, a styling hack ripped directly off Celine’s Fall 16 runway with leggings shown under an ankle-length skirt. The turtleneck is optional but makes for a solid addition or subtraction should you be day-to-nighting and in need of something to demarcate the two choice looks. Whatever you do, don’t take off the sunglasses.

You know what they say, right? MORE IS MORE AND LESS IS LAME!

That’s it. That’s all.
