"Anyone that doesn't agree with leggings as pants can physically fight me. 
And i'm going to win because I have a full range of motion,
due to the fact that i'm wearing leggings as pants."

HAHA 
Okay, but really. 
I know this is a super sensitive topic and everyone has a right to their own opinion.
Although I completely see why some people say NO to leggings as pants,
I always find that there's an exception.

I mean, 
if there is any sort of camel toe whatsoever in the leggings you are choosing to wear as pants,
then you are wrong.

However, if you are comfortable with the camel showing then you werk it girl.
I'm not here to put shame on anyones game.

To me, I feel like if leggings are a certain thickness then they are socially acceptable.
Let me re-phrase that...Leggings as pants are ALWAYS acceptable, 
However, in some cases it is essential to wear a longer top...
Like if the leggings are see through when you bend over or if you've got a visible CT...
Or if the leggings are so thin that you can see every lump and bump the good Lord blessed you with.
Those are typically called tights...Tights & leggings are NOT the same.
Feel free to learn all about the differences at this link here.

The leggings i'm wearing above are pretty thick,
the inside is kind of like a furry fleece material.
I felt pretty comfortable wearing these as pants with a shorter top...
Maybe not 100% comfortable,
 Like I probably wouldn't have met up with a big group of friends in a social setting,
but comfortable enough to run a few errands during the day.

One thing i've learned is that there's always a time and a place for leggings as pants...
If you're new to the leggings as pants world and are wanting to try it out,
Head over to walmart and strut your stuff girlfriend,
no judgement can come from the people of walmart, 
and I can guarantee you, you won't be the only one in there wearing leggings as pants.

To those of you who are against leggings as pants, I forgive you.
And to those who are wearing leggings as pants while reading this, Godspeed little soldier.

  1. I have been looking for a good pair of burgundy leggings and even searched your site last night! Do you still have some of those in stock?

  2. I agree with you, leggings (not tights) can be worn as pants with the correct top. I love pairing mine with tunics.

  3. I took a chance and ordered these pants. I was scared because I think I looked at ladies wearing other version of workout gear but like in the Capri form and it was a bit see through so as soon as I got this I tried it on and I'm so happy.
