Here's the deal:
1. Crazy fruit loop striped leggings don't count as pants - just be thankful I didn't get a picture from the back.
2. Putting this on, stepping outside of your door, and wearing this in public sends the message that you want to be looked at, have attention drawn to you, and ultimately lands you a feature spot on my blog.
3. I know a lot of people may disagree with posting pictures of fashion offenders on the internet on the basis that they would never want something like this to happen to them - well I say, don't dress like this and you'll have nothing to worry about! Also, if you've made the decision to go out in public wearing this, then you've given permission for people to look at you. And, I didn't show her face.
4. The shoe/sock combo and the worn leather jacket are so unfortunate that I can't even conjure up a witty come-back.
With that said, this outfit raises the issue of wearing leggings as your pant alternative. What do you think? Can it be done? Obviously, this woman isn't doing it right at all, however, it is a very popular look among teens and young women.
I googled "leggings as pants" and there seems to be a hotbed of conversation! I even found this Facebook Group, "Leggings are NOT Pants."
This article definitely has a strong opinion about the matter.
