offender spotted at the penn quarter sports tavern, washington, dc. i’m not even going to write something mean about this girl except to say that this is the poster ass for why leggings are not pants.

spotted visiting the world war II memorial, washington, dc. i feel a little bad calling this offender out, as she’s clearly providing a public service to her dear grandpop. but this here is a classic offense. waist length t-shirt with leggings? no way.

additional angle: angel butt. also another offender standing to her right, although she pulls off the outfit slightly better with the denim leggings.

YLANP operative megandigit spotted this uh, interesting pair of… bottoms… at Newark International Airport. she reports that in addition to the bedazzled angel wings adorning her butt, the offender paired with her leggings a hot pink velour jacket (that of course offered no ass covering whatsoever) and knee-high ed hardy boots. a real fashion nightmare if you ask me.

“There’s not much you can do with leggings, but I’m doing everything I can.” -Lindsay Lohan
lindsay apparently has this ridiculous “line” of leggings, modeled above, and is often seen in public violating the crotch rule. this photo is especially offensive, as wearing a see-thru shirt violates another kk decree (see rule 1).

listen. those leggings? they aren’t pants, ok?

my mother, the one and only, had two general approaches to my childhood wardrobe. one extreme: strict regulation, from purchase right on down to outfit execution. other end of the spectrum: total laissez-faire. thus, i spent most of my childhood in very nice, but very uncool jumpers, sundresses and what can best be described as, well, rompers. when she wasn’t picking out my clothes and i was left to my own devices, outfits usually consisted of jeans-or worse, denim shorts- and a tucked in collared shirt. i was also a fan of matching prints. anyway, you get the picture. it was not cute.

fortunately, she did impart a few nuggets of fashion wisdom.

1) (i paraphrase here) girls who dress like sluts get treated as such. word, mommy. right you are.

2) always wear clean undies. who knows when you’ll end up in the emergency room with dirty skivvies. again, solid advice. for the ER and a variety of other contingencies.

3) leggings are not pants. amen, sister, amen.

kk’s general rule of thumb on the leggings was that they were fine under dresses, tunics and various long shirts and blouses SO LONG AS the top covered your crotch and your ass. how simple is that? easy as pie, right?

WRONG. as it turns out, women and girls everywhere are committing this egregious fashion sin left and right. and tomes have been written on this subject. i’m far from the first to be outraged by the downright sacrilege of leggings as pants, and i know i won’t be the last.

so, my fair readers, i’ll simply let the photos (TK, i realize) speak for themselves.
