Leggings are not trousers!


Is it just me or is the increasingly regular appearance of that spandex wrapping paper we call leggings reappearing (after a good fifteen year hiatus) on the lower half of women across the country just a bit much?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of stretchy time, Santo Gold is a great example of that look working at its best! But unfortunately for the majority of spandex fans...
"YO ASS SHOULD NOT BE IN THAT OUTSIDE THE GYM OR YOUR HOUSE!!"

Today was the final straw! seeing a pretty, trendy, smiley lager women bumbling about with all the rolls on show just because of a trend isn't right... AT ALL.

This is a rant born out of frustration not distaste for the curvy women or the obese. I just don't understand how a trend can make people fool themselves that hard!

So the return of the Legging?
Sink or Swim?

P.s Die skinny jean die!!

1. lol @ stretchy-time
2. leggings- i only wear them at the gym or running, but think if you are going to wear them, you must observe the golden rule that they MUST cover your bum bum and you need a BMI of around 21
3. what is wrong with skinny jeans? don't take them away from me. not properly skinny, just straight leg.

Yep Santogold does smash that look.
But Bizi I have to ask how DO you like the girls?

Leggings- I'm kinda getting tired of them. I still wear them sometimes, because I have them, and they are convenient to wear under skirts or long shirts, especially since I bike around a lot. But I was wearing some and just thinking how I didn't like my outfit (because of them). At least over here, they are a little played out, admittedly.
My cardinal leggings rules:
1) your top should reach the bottom of your butt to mid-thigh
2)if not they should definately be thicker, and the rest of the outfit should warrant it
3) no muffin top. If there are lumps that wouldn't be found in an anatomy book rolling under them, it's a no-go.
4)don't wear them every damn day!

Long live the skinny jean.

biz man i disagree with you whole heartedly i think leggings are such a good look> But only when a pretty leggy girl with a toned body (especially the bottom region) rocks them. Then combine that with a killer pair of heels, it blows my mind mate.

basicaly as gigolo knight said only on the right girl.

and skinny jeans are valid when a girls rocking them but men need to get real, especially the dudes who wanna combine them with the chunkiest air forces/dunks or reeboks. start lynching you mofo's at sunrise...

Booga said...

Personally, I especially like the skinnies on men. I was getting so tired of dudes hiding beneath baggy clothes all the time

Big Post Biz!

Now I have been a fan on the legging and spandex. Now I got some hips on me. Trust. I used to hide the gluteus maximums under long tops. Recently I've been embracing my curves. Fuck it I say. Santo is a great example of how leggings should be rocked, if I knew where, I too would rock a leopard print leotard

Power to legging!

Many trends have fooled people like spandex and boys wearing shorts with socks? And the skinny jean. Will never die. What would you prefer a baggy out of shape piece of denim not showing off any curvaceousness? What would be your alternative? I'm intrigued!

I like to stay away from anything that might whispering, asking yeast infection to join the party, on the sly... LOL!!! Leggings, no sir!!

But I guess they can work for other women though.

@ she's little helper...wow what great assertiveness. If that was a catsuit I would of kissed the screen and ordered!

At ella..I am still in two minds (not that ever stopped me) but leggings are quite explicit. No? Reminds me of the ol' ragga song punny printer by pan head.

It does excactly what it says on the tin...
