Dear Kim,

There has been a ton of conversation everywhere about women wearing leggings wherever they go.  I must admit, I have a few pair that I wear regularly.  What are your thoughts about leggings?

Dear Debbie,

OMGoodness, talk about a hot topic!  People are actually protesting when someone criticizes the fact a female is wearing leggings when “they” consider it inappropriate.  I know most of our mother’s taught us: “if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.”  That’s where I’m at right this minute!  I truly can’t think of anything nice to say about leggings.  I heard a joke about leggings that went something like this:  There are two things that don’t lie.  Small children and leggings.  LOLOLOL.  I would have to agree with that statement wholeheartedly!

Seriously though, while I personally believe there is a time and a place for that type of clothing, I am not the fashion police.  IMHO, very few people “look good” in leggings.  Leggings are not “made” to look good.  Cute maybe, good nope.

This is one of the many reason’s some establishments have dress codes!  From office or professional environments, to fine dining establishments; there are some places where leggings are just not appropriate.  Casual dress may be fine sometimes and for better or worse, we tend to be a very casual society.  I would also venture to say when most women make this fashion choice, they are seeking comfort not style.  I’m also certain they could care less about what anyone else thinks about how they look!  Good for them.
