A fall fashion PSA

As fall arrives and the temperature drops, most everyone's wardrobe makes a shift to warmer and cozier items to hold off the chill in the air. However, there is one terrible item that pops up year after year, that is worn incorrectly and I can no longer keep my mouth shut about it.....

 

LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS!

I see it everywhere, at work, at the mall, at the grocery store...woman after woman wearing her leggings like they are a pair of pants. No, no, no, no, no! Ladies, treat your leggings like you would pantyhose, you wouldn't go around not covering your rear if you were wearing those would you? Of course not! Leggings out in public are only acceptable in these situations:

-Going to and from the gym (and they better be athletic leggings)
-Under a dress/tunic that comes to at LEAST mid-thigh

Now I know some will argue that leggings are sooooooo comfortable, and yes they are. BUT, allow me to offer a few alternatives.

Old Navy joggers Joggers, almost like sweatpants but can be dressed up or down

Old Navy trousers Trousers, softer than jeans and just as appropriate outside the office

Old Navy ponte-knit pants Ponte-knit pants, essentially really thick leggings that are cut like pants 

Forever 21 leather leggings Leather, if you must wear leggings, go with leather (faux or real)
