Are leggings pants

I love this white cami,I love it because it is one of the few things in my closet that fits me regularly. I swell a lot so a bunch of my clothes do not fit, it is severely depressing.I know first world problems, but tell that to an exhausted special needs mom who needs to get her kid out the door and nothing fits! You would be sitting on your closet floor crying too.

 

Ahh I need to stop whining and get on with it! Now, here we go again, with the swelling I have been living in joggers and leggings. I know that SOME may say they are not pants. However, Webster’s Dictionary describes pants as “an outer garment covering each leg separately and usually extending from the waist to the ankle”

Therefore, leggings are in fact pants. Comfy pants, that can look amazing with a nice sweater, or in this case a cute white camisole top.

Leggings are by definition pants! The word actually was first used in 1718, isn’t learning fun? A covering for the legs, although leggings back in 1718, were those fancy pants, tights men wore. OOH yes.

Now a days leggings are more of pants than a tight.

DIdn’t think you would come to this blog today for a history lesson on leggings did you? Women are only spending 2.8 billion more on  suits than on leggings, so if you think about that figure, just imagine how much money is spent on these amazing pieces of clothing.

Oh, and by the way that figure is annually!

I mean seriously it is no surprise why? They can be made of leather as in definition of a legging, they can be cotton. Leggings can be worn for exercise and play. There are even leggings so posh you can get by wearing them to work. Leggings are also a pregnant woman’s best friend! These glorious pieces of leg covering cloth are certainly my basic mom uniform, especially with all the health crap I am going through. AND leggings do not have to cost an arm and a leg, there is no guessing the size. S-XXXL. Of course some fit better than others.

They are cheap and comfortable, and yes just like the basic white tee, there are some that are a bit over the top expensive(i.e a pair of embroidered leggings by GUCCI). But then, if you have that kind of money laying around, it really doesn’t matter does it?

But if you are more basic like me, you can get by with some great pairs of leggings without over spending. Like the pair I have on here from BOOHOO. They are cheap, they are comfy, and they are faux leather.

So, I leave the next question up to you. DO you love leggings? Do you wear them? Do you think leggings need to go or are not suitable to wear outside like some have said about yoga pants?

    I think you need to wear whatever you feel good in! My main gripe about leggings is that so many can be transparent and people wear those as pants. Yours look great on you!
