Leggings Are Not Pants

  1. dude, i feel compelled to note that there is an entire generation -- and some with lapsed memories -- that are confusing TIGHTS with LEGGINGS. when i went through this phase in the early 90s, leggings were cotton blend pants. note the horror that was stirrup leggings.

  2. couldn't agree more. these are rife in Brooklyn and yesterday I saw LACE tights worn as pants...frightening.

  3. Yes- I know a lot of people have been talking about this lately. It's got to stop. Really. I do fondly recall my two favourite pairs of stirrups from when I was a child. One pair was off-white with a ribbed seam running down the front and the other pair was turquoise "corduroy." Amazing.
