Thank Us Later: Danskin Supplex Leggings Are The Only Pants You’ll Ever Need

You know what sucks? Pants. Pants suck. Skirts also suck. Dresses can be OK, but usually they suck. If I could wear cotton track shorts all the time and not look like a total freak, I would. My goal, when dressing, is to basically have nothing on my legs. Barring the ability to do that…

Let’s Stop Hating On This Woman For Finding Leggings “Lustful”

The go-to legging “controversy” has always been the “pants or not” debate, but these days, the focus seems to have shifted to the question of whether they’re some kind of symbol of sexual deviance.

I have yet to try out the magic warming powers of fleece leggings, but that’s because I’ve been too busy obsessing over my cozy bamboo-lined pair. Bamboo leggings can probably be found on many corners of the internet, but mine come from a kickass small business called Toast, known for its ultra-warm stadium skirts which were developed…

10 Geeky Leggings To Ogle

Let’s pretend it isn’t ridiculously cold out. Or maybe the reason it’s not quite leggings weather is that you live in Australia, where it’s hot as Satan’s armpit right now and the thought of fabric clinging to your legs makes you want to break out in hives. Either way, it’s not the time for a…

Do Not Want: Charlie Chaplin Camel Toe Leggings

“Charlie Chaplin Camel Toe”: hipster band name or brutally honest description of these leggings? Probably both, but for right now let’s focus on these leggings, which I’m pretty sure I’ve seen before in a fever dream I had in 10th grade. So upsetting. [$30, ROMWE]…

The Only Leggings You Should Wear As Pants

Let J. Crew’s Pixie put the leggings as pants controversy to rest — leggings CAN be worn as pants when they’re as sleek, thick, slimming and comfy as these. Despite being a J. Crew enthusiast (seriously, I am often dressed like an unpaid and less perfect J. Crew model), I didn’t become aware of the…

Do Not Want: Star Spangled Leggings

Sometimes an article of clothing comes along that makes me think, I wonder what the founding fathers would think of that. These two-toned star print leggings are one of those garments. For some reason, I feel like Thomas Jefferson would approve. I, however, do not. [$48, Nasty Gal]…

Dream Bottoms: Penis Leggings

Printed pants are hot right now, but these penis leggings take prints to an arousing level. Take a closer look. That’s a d**k print.  Suffice it to say, I must own these “Is that a c**k or your legs?” pants even though they cost $150. I will wear them all the time, and wear them…

Debate This: 10 Reasons Jeggings Are Awesome (And 10 Reasons They’re Not)

Jeggings, the love child of jeans and leggings, are a huge point of contention in the fashion world. Some people think they’re the best thing to happen to denim since the advent of the dark wash boot cut. Others find them more offensive than mom jeans, acid wash skinny jeans, and men’s jean shorts combined.

Shopping Guide: 12 Perfectly Patterned Leggings

Patterned leggings are a simple way to seem dressed up without putting a whole heck of a lot more effort into your outfit. If you’re going to go with a crazy patterned bottom, keep the rest of your outfit plain and basic. Or else you’ll look like a clown. Which, you know, might be your…

Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like…

Do Not Want: Lumpy Leggings

We included skinny cargo pants on our list of trends we hope die in 2011 for good reason, but these cargo leggings deserve a separate shout-out of their own. The combination of skintight spandex and lumpy thigh pockets not only creates a supremely unflattering silhouette, it also encourages the wearing of leggings as pants (another…

Braille Leggings Make You Easy To Read

Check this out: Mind What You Wear is a Dutch label that does what it calls “guerilla fashion” to promote non-conformism, awareness, and small revolution through dress. They’ve got a number of bizarre and off-beat items (try: a sock for your penis, fake Louis Vuitton bags printed with the word “fake” on them, etc.) but…

Presenting Your Winter Saturday Uniform

When the weather outside is frightful, these J.Crew leggings will be so delightful. The retailer makes it easy to crave these warm leggings that beg for lazy Saturdays with hot cocoa. (They are called the “ultra-lounge pant” after all.) Vintage-style heathered fabric brings the casual, while a skinny fit makes the stretchies presentable enough that…
