Tights are not pants!
Neither are leggings.
I know it might be confusing. After all, pants and tights do go on the same way. And I realize some tights and leggings are opaque, which adds to their outerwear-esque appearance. But even opaque tights have their issues. Take this photo of Lindsay Lohan:
|even on (in)famous people, tights are not pants|
See how the tights begin to pull upon reaching the thigh thus losing their opacity? It's like a big swash of highlighter right up your thigh. I'm sure that's an area we all want to highlight. Plus, Lindsay Lohan. Is that really the look you want to go for?
When you are able to tear your eyes from Lindsay's thighs, spend some time looking at Olivia Wilde's crotch (Yeah, I never thought, I'd write that either).
|why, Olivia, why?|
Admit it, it's hard to look away. She has creases and seams forming a runway to her nether regions, and still more seam running up her slightly flattened backside. Why, Olivia? Why? As for moms taking their kids to school, I DO NOT NEED TO KNOW THIS MUCH ABOUT YOU. Ours is a casual relationship.
This is not to say I don't like tights. I do! But, not as pants. More, as accessories. Like paired with winter shorts.
|see, tights go under (short) pants.|
Or, more traditionally, a skirt.

So let's review. Which of the following celebrities are wearing pants?
|Kristy Leigh Porter|
Answers: A. Jennifer Aniston, B. Emma Watson, C. Katie Holmes
Did, you get them all right? Good! You may call yourself a sartorialist.
If you only got two out of three, I forgive you. Kristy's black legs and Becky's saucy smile may have confused you.
What! You got only one? Maybe you recently bought these tights and now you are desperately grasping for additional ways to wear them. Next time, buy pants.
If you got none correct, oh honey, my blog may not be enough to help you because you have bigger problems than fashion. Your friends are obviously trying to sabotage you because people who love you do not let you go out in public without the bottom part of your body dressed.
