I’m no fashion guru or trend-master, but I know the difference between pants and non-pants, which seems to be a hard concept for some people. There once was a time, which may be hard to remember, when pajama pants were trendy to wear to school. But that was seventh grade: side ponytails and multicolored braces were trendy then too.
It’s a disgrace to the wearer and society when you can spot an adult wearing Hello Kitty fleece pajama pants to the mall on a Saturday afternoon. I’m sorry, but if you are old enough to buy lingerie at Victoria’s Secret, you are also old enough to pick yourself out of bed and put real pants on. I get it. We all have our scrub days when we aren’t feeling well or just feeling fat (maybe it’s a girl thing). But that is why, on the seventh day, God created yoga pants.
Yoga pants are completely acceptable to wear in public and as comfortable as pajama pants. So please, take the phone out of your waste band and strip the yoga pants before you look even trashier than you already do.
The lovely cousin of yoga pants is the legging. Leggings are not pants either! Wearing a tiny little V-neck shirt that doesn’t even cover the waistband is unacceptable. I am not one to tell people what to wear but come on—your leggings are not bringing all the boys to the yard.
If you think you have a nice booty, then show it off in a fine pair of jeans. Other than that, buy an oversize sweater and cover your derriere, because no one wants to see it in your near-transparent leggings. And don’t even get me started on white leggings…woof. There will never be a time or place for those, not even after Memorial Day. So everybody, I hope I made my point clear. Go out and find a favorite pair of yoga pants, and save them for the days your feelin’ like a scrub, because pajama pants and leggings will just never be acceptable.
