Leggings Aren't Pants

This Woman Is Here to Set You Straight on How to Wear Leggings

In the ongoing debate about whether leggings are or are not in fact pants, one woman is making a desperate plea — and it's going viral. Tennessee woman Jamie Higdon Randolph took to YouTube to declare once and for all that "leggings ain't pants." The two-minute rant, which begins with a reminder that "leggin' weather" is upon us, goes on to detail the many dos and don'ts of wearing the ever-popular and often-controversial bottoms.

Don't get her wrong, she loves leggings for the same reasons we all do: "they're comfortable . . . they don't cut into you . . . you can dress 'em up, you can dress 'em down." But here's the kicker: "Some of you people like to use‪ leggins as britches, as pants, pants. That ain't how they're supposed to be worn." And, furthermore, "if you can't wear a shirt that covers your tail . . . you don't need to be wearing 'em." Let's just say if ever you had questions about the right and wrong ways to wear leggings, Jamie has some answers for you. Watch on to get it straight from the "expert."
