Leggings as Pants - Fashion Do or Don't?


I adore leggings (especially in the recent months); however, I constantly am on the fence as to whether or not they are suitable as a pant or not.  People are incredibly divided on this topic.  There's even a facebook group out there, with over 400,000 'Likes' no less, that is dedicated to spreading the word that pants as leggings is not acceptable.  I'll be the first to admit that I have worn them as pants in a casual setting before.  But I'm interested to hear what your opinions of this are: Do think leggings are pants? or do you subscribe to the mentality that they are not?

  1. I don't wear leggings as pants unless I'm at home. I found your blog through clothes hound and i love it! I'm following you now and can't wait to see more of your posts!

  2. It's ok if you have Pippa's booty ... or if you're pregnant ... right?!? :)

  3. I personally don't wear them as pants but I have a bit of a bubble butt so I can't pull them off. If you have a tiny tush, I think you can get away with it though.

  4. i think it depends on the thickness of the leggings, if they're sheer when you bend over mostly.

    typically i don't think they are pants, but i have worn them that way when i'm in a rush or just hanging out around the house

  5. For me only around the house. But would love to be in shape enough to even consider it as an option! ;)

  6. I'm of the school of thought that when it comes to wearing leggings as pants, texture and fabric are everything. Simple, cotton/spandex leggings are definitely lounge or gym attire. However, leggings come in many different kinds of luxurious fabrics and textures. I'm not sure where leggings cross over to skinnys, but I definitely own some leggings that can be worn as pants very fabulously without looking frumpy.
