Leggings As Pants

When you purchase the right pair of leggings they can certainly pass for pants. That is as long as they are thick enough.  They can be paired with an oversized sweater, a flannel, a t-shirt, boots, sneakers, etc. Depending on what you pair the leggings with they can be dressed up or down. 

Questions to ask yourself before deciding to wear a pair of leggings as pants:
Can you see through the leggings?
If the answer to this question is yes, then you should probably do two things.  One, take them off. Two, throw them in the trash. You definitely don't want your lady parts or undergarments to be showing through your leggings no matter where you are. 

Does your top cover your back and front private square?
If the answer is no, then you can't wear this outfit. You definitely cannot be flashing anyone from the front or the back.

So once you've answered those important questions, it's time to finished getting ready!  Check out and outfit I put together that involved wearing leggings as pants. I wore this outfit a few weeks ago to go to the library and to dinner with friends. It was a chilly day, so I wanted to be warm, cute, and comfortable. 

Check out my pinterest board for some other great outfits to pair with leggings. 



  1. Amen, friend! I'm so glad someone finally said it. It drives me nuts when girls wear leggings that look more borderline black tights than leggings!

  2. I agree with this! I will not pair my leggings with any shirt that doesn't cover my butt.
