I am excited about today's guest. Ally from Shybiker is one of the kindest and most stylish bloggers I know AND asks extremely interesting and thought provoking questions in blog posts. Today is no exception and I'm excited to come back and see what everyone has to say about this topic! Here's Ally!
Hi! My name's Ally and I blog at Shybiker. I like Beth a lot and am flattered she's allowing me to appear here. Her blog is one of my favorites.
I believe it would be fun to use this opportunity to discuss a topic that puzzles me and divides women. That topic is -- should you wear leggings as pants?
Most fashion-bloggers immediately say NO! But when I walk through a mall, I see dozens of women breaking this "rule". Women of all ages. Manfestly, this is a common practice however much some condemn it. Even celebrities wear leggings as pants for comfort and to display their bodies. For example, here's a candid photo of Ashley Tisdale...
On one hand, modesty suggests we should cover our private areas. On the other hand, many fit women like to show off their shapely curves. Leggings can be very effective at doing that.
On my blog, I once wore what I thought were thick white pants with a snakeskin print. In pictures, they looked like leggings due to their tightness. I caught flack for wearing them. I was confused -- when are leggings pants and when are pants leggings? Is it the thickness of the material?
What do you think about this subject?
