What!?! Leggings aren't pants!

Someone wrote in some article: LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS!
And I could hear crying coming from my leggings, all folded up in their little legging drawer!
Who would write such a thing!?!
Yeah! Yeah! I know, if they are nylon, like "tights", I agree, way too much can be seen through those babies! Undies, maybe the absence of undies! But come on, some solid, OPAQUE, cotton, maybe cotton/blend leggings! They are pants!
HOLD UP! WAIT A  MINUTE!
LEGGING CROTCH, must be covered. No one needs to see that!
That why I DESIGNED my little "crotch-cover-skirt"!!! hellooooo?
I LOVE leggings, so much, that I am getting married to them. (ha ha ha)
I don't think I need say anything more, except show you these snapshots of my life-in-leggings.
(Top Left, me in Urban Outfitters with my $7 forever 21 leggings, top right my clearance $5 zebra leggings from Kohl's, who knew, I never even had shopped there before!)
 
(above, me and my friend Tessa, right before I bought my fav SUPREME necklace, in another pair of $7, Forever 21 leggings! BELOW, left leggings from Charlotte Russe, RIGHT, me posing as Snow White in another $7 pair from Forever 21, and bottom, my fav Zebra babies!)
leggings are as comfortable as being without clothes on, as you'll get...being clothed! I love to travel in them, walk in them, dance in them, work out in them, live in them....
I dare someone to try to step to me and tell me they aren't pants, I can move my legs so well in my leggings, I'll windmill kick the air right near their head....I'd like to see them try to do that in their tight skinny jeans! ha ha ha

LOVE AND LEGGINGS, kandee

It annoys me so much when people say that! I guess it really depends on your body type though.

Ally said...

If leggings aren't considered pants, then why were "Jeggings" invented??
I bet you the person who wrote that article didn't have enough fashion sense to pull off leggings. ;)

Judersssa said...

xD i so agree with you :) but i have to drop a few pounds to rock em :(

I agree...I'm a little to old to get away with wearing them to often but I did buy a pair a week or so ago to wear under a dress. Like you said if they are like nylons they are not pants. The one I got happen to be all cotton and more like exercise pants then leggings but they work for the purpose I bought them. Thanks for making me laugh and all your great instructional video's.

HAHAHA you are the best, Kandee. I love the WADDYA MEAN THEY AREN"T PANTS?!?!?! I can just hear exactly how you would say it in my head. Damn right they are pants!!!!

Love,
me and my leggings <3

I love leggins!! they look amazing on you, I remember my mom used to use them when she was younger. I would love to wear them but can't pull it off, I am too skinny well at least my legs are :(

Anna said...

You look great in those pictures, Kandee. :)

I love leggings too, especially colored and textured ones, but I would have to agree with the statement that they are not pants, depending on how you choose to define pants. Leggings were meant to be worn with dresses, long tops, skirts, or shorts. The crotch needs to be covered regardless of opacity. Most people think of pants as a bottom separate piece than can stand alone.

miss petite america said...

leggings are pants as long as you cover your crotch. it's people who wear leggings with like a short tanktop or something that give leggings a bad name.

Silver_A said...

They look amazing on you. My mother used to use them when she was young. I would love to wear them,but I am too skinny, well at least my legs are :(. They are stil cute do

*~kAy~* said...

I love leggings! I love your leggings! :P

chelsea said...

Absolutely agree with you! i get sooo tried of wearing jeans, so ill just throw on a pair of leggings and call it a day. haha. they are sooo comfortable and you can wear them with anything and where them anywhere.

Tone said...

As long as no one can see your "hoo haa" wear whatever the hell you want is what I say. :)

Shaheen Shine said...

i love leggings too!! i can't understand why teens like skinny jeans, i hate jeans because they fall off my butt, and they need belts and if you have a tunny you need high rise?? I have a tummy and love leggings because there light airy,come in fun and funky colors and their the only pair of bottoms you can workout,swim,sleep,dance,and live in ... See more hahah. so yeah i love leggings knowing that other people like you kandee love em is awesome too! i do like your jean skirt, by the way, need to make a jean skirt "no none needs to see your crotch!" COULDN'T AGREE MORE SISTAH! we should make a leggings ARE/.IS pants group!

Caely said...

I was always opposed to leggings as pants until I actually gave it a try... Alas, I now bask in their goodness! Love the bit about windmill kicking!

Lilly King Williams said...

i agree i agree I AGREE!!
coz i love my leggins too and of course i wont wear see thru ones or anything like tht and not cover my rump. but leggins are wonderful things!!!...so simple and i find it much easier to mix n match than jeans or any other kinda pants...and they're much more comfy too.....kandee i love foloowing ur blog!!!!!

Anna said...

i love leggins too, have to dress 'smart' to work so i bought 'treggins' on asos.com, thye look slightly more like pant and i like to roll them up a bit and wear them like chinos with converse pumps, love xxx

Nihbi Malet Iyu said...

I love leggings too and I have to agree with you Kandee when you say
"I'll windmill kick the air right near their head....I'd like to see them try to do that in their tight skinny jeans! ha ha ha". That'd not only be hilarious to see but it'd prove to everyone that leggings are pants if you wear them right :) Like you do!!!

♥ Kirsty ♥ said...

This post made me LOL!!!

I totally agree...I once overheard a girl on the tube in London saying to her friend: "Seriously, if you can't tell the difference between leggings and trousers (pants)...then just wear jeans!"

I think you're hit the nail on the head...opacity it the key thing here - maybe it should be a rule that while you check your make-up in daylight, you should perhaps check for knicker visibility at the same time?

Just a thought? lol! :-P

Sini said...

I have seen that same comment everywhere now, "leggins are not pants, so cover your ass!" I think leggins are so nice, but still, yes like you said, need to cover crotch and ass :)

I love leggins with long shirts,skirts and dresses!

DanniiBeauty said...

I love leggings too - so comfortable, but I must wear a oversized t - shirt or jumper on top!!!! Love the pics.

Kharina said...

Your leggings are fab though, your outfits are so pulled together it's insane!

sarah:) said...

Ha yes i toally agree i saw that too theres a even a facebook page on it!! I love wearing leggings i live in them lol.but i also agree that you have to wear them right becaue when there reefed up to your ears they can look extremely unattractive around the crotch area!!LOL.

Love x

Danielle said...

I love my leggings, I live in them! I always used to wear jeans, now I hate wearing them as leggings are way more comfy.

Gandhali said...

lol you're hilarious ... i would never wear leggings as pants [wait - make that i would never wear leggings, period] but you look good in them.

Yvette said...

I love me some leggings. Grant it I'm not slender... but if you have chicken legs and are too tall and no legs then you have no business wearing them. Fashion is about what makes you comfy and you feel pretty and look good. Camel toes are not cute and seeing pples undies is not cute.

Yes, they are pants when worn casually and crotch is covered. What about if girls wore panties that are nude or match the color of the leggings. I usually wear black leggings and wear black undies.

They can be workout pants if you have the right body (lord knows I wouldn't wear a tank top and leggings to workout)

Age.. Doesn't matter if you are wearing them right and look good.

Preach on Kandee... you make them look great!

Crystal said...

I agree! They are pants and I rock them like you Kandee just fine :D thank you very much

HeavyMetalChic said...

I love leggings. end of story.

SianIsSMALL said...

haha your soo cute and soo right
i love your pictures hehe and you have lovely collection of leggings :)xxxx

christyjoy said...

Technically they are. They would be classified as
bottoms for custom declaration/ duty / quota category when importing them here from a manufacturer / factory. I should know since I work in the apparel importing business. So take THAT article! Lol

me :) said...

It depends on your figure and the material of the leggings. You make them look so good. I don't know you do it x

DeSiru said...

Thanks Kandee!!! I've been thinking too much leggins like can you wear them without covering your bum and stuff. I'd love to wear ONLY some leggins and shirt, because it's so comfortable!!!

But I'm not sure will I wear leggins with short top or something, then I will pick shorts too. And still you feel that those shorts are making your loveable leggins feel sad. :CC

Thanks anyway Kandee I've learned so much from you! ♥ Love is all you need.

MUA said...

Haha, funny post ...You can rock those pants-that-are-not-suposed-to-be-pants !

The AQUANAUTS said...

In my opion, if there is a caveat to wearing said pants as pants, well then they are not pants at all. No one says you can wear jeans as pants but only if you cover the knee area.

Leggings are between pants and tights. You don't need to fully cover your butt like with tights, but NEVER wearn leggings with a top that hits the waist band!

Love your leggings and your style is definitely spot on, but I have to kinda disagree with you.

Makeup Fashion Love said...

You're so rite...I mean, leggings are great but I always cover them up with something so they're not see through...I really like ur demium skirt that u have on in the pic!

navy_brat_1972 said...

I agree they are pants. Only I don't look as cute in my leggings, Kandee, as you do in yours. ;)

I have 1 pair right now. Still trying to get over the whole 1980s tyype of leggings (TRAUMA! haha)

Seriously. I never thought I'd love leggings like I do (since the last time I wore them I was a teen in the 80s).

I can only hope that I can make them look as fashionable and as cute as you.

And,yeah. I agree with whomever (and you) stated that they need to be worn with a shirt to cover the crotch. Please no tanks. Unless you're working out. Ya know? : )

Laura said...

Some people can pull of legging-as-pants, and others unfortunately can not. You are definitely one of the people that can pull off leggings-as-pants, and I myself am someone who can NOT. Too much jiggly stuff. lol :) I hate to say it, but for some body types, leggings-as-pants is not very fun to look at. People just need to understand their body type. It's been a struggle my whole life to deal with the fact that some of my favorite styles simply don't look good with my body-type. I'm just trying to embrace my body for what it is!

Spreadhopelikefire90 said...

I agree. Leggings are one thing I love to wear. they are so comfortable.

Athena said...

I <3 your enthusiasm and dedication to your leggings! Embrace the leggings, become one with the leggings! :)

As a person who has never worn leggings...you make me want to run out and buy a pair--

Keep on bein' Kandee!

janea said...

i wear leggings as pants all the time. i dont care what anyone says, and besides i have great legs and a fab ass so SUCK IT, AMERICA. forget rules. i wear them with tank tops, t shirts, tunics. LONG HAIR, DON'T CARE. if anyone has a problem with it, then their life must suck if they care so much about what i'm wearing.

seaprincess1 said...

I think it all depends on how you were the leggings and the material they're made off. I was driving behind a girl who was wearing black leggings on while ridding on the back of her boyfriends motorcycle. needless to say, those leggings were not pants and you could see every thing that her underwear would have covered,if she only them on lol.

smiling cat said...

Hi Kandee, I love your last outfit, the black with zebra leggings, you look great on it! please, can you make a medieval make-up? say yes! ^u^

lovebug18181 said...

I love your style! Its very much like my style but before watching your videos I held it back because it was too crazy for my families taste. But I am slowly easing back into it since you have given me confidence to be ME! Thanks

Kathryn said...

I don't know.... It's very controversial. I know a lot of people who think leggings shouldn't be worn as pants - they DO show off your whole ass and crotch.

But I also know a lot of people who wear just leggings.

I don't really care what people think. But if I am wearing leggings alone I'm going to make sure they're not tight on my crotch. haha

witchered said...

Ha-ha! :-D I saw this title "Leggings aren`t pants so cover your ass" in facebook. It`s a group, and now I`m part of it.

But it`s true that some leggings could be like pants. Those pics you have here are real nice and you look great!

But some people just don`t know how to wear them, and it looks so ridiculous and pitiful. ( Negative thoughts! I know. :-/ ) Some girls have buxom legs ( not just buxom body, but legs!! ) and it`s really comical to see them in tight leggings that are usually also too sheer. Eyes are burning when I see too much! XD

rock star said...

It depends on what type of leggings they are, I've got black ones that are handy to wear with mini dresses, tunics, etc etc.
I don't see a problem with them as long as my undies don't show lol.

Eric said...

I think this may be a little bit too much. Leggings leave little to the imagination, and when they're worn with something longer they look great, but without they look a little too tight.

BarbieKagenShisMommy said...

;) You are too funny Kandee... but I also agree because I love leggings as well. I think the person who said that leggings aren't pants can't wear them! And YES, it DOES take a certain body type to rock them well! not ANYONE can wear a pair of leggings and still be considered fashionable!

April Ollerenshaw said...

I think you should totally do a small tutorial on how you cut your "crotch-cover-skirt" hahaha!
Apart from the great service one would provide it looks great too!
