Cover Your Butt..Or How To Wear Leggings

It seems that women *the teens and early twenties variety especially* seem to forget that leggings are not pants.  They are leggings.  A hybrid between tights and pants.  Therefore you should always remember one thing:  cover your ass!  Ladies, regardless of how nice or well scuplted you deem your derriere, please cover it when wearing leggings.

Too many a time have I walked behind a young woman on the metro and seen the exact shade and shape of her underwear through the bum she presented to me underneath her leggings.  It's not a view I particularly enjoy with my morning coffee.  I don't want to see it, and while there are some who do, please for the sake of the rest of us keep it off the public metro and streets by just doing me one little favor:  cover your butt.

  3. Cracking up and nodding at this one! My husband came home from the grocery store looking like someone had poked him in the eye a few days ago, there was quite a lack of butt coverage at the foodstore on a Sunday morning!

    1. Thanks. I've loved leather for so long and it used to be so hard to find fun pieces, but now it's everywhere and I'm like a kid in a candy store. And yes, always butt covered.

  7. Yes! I 100% agree. Also, you are rocking those leggings. In the appropriate way, of course.

  8. Yaaay thank you!! I agree with you! Although that's not the worst of it...apparently some girls wear tights as pants?! In one of my friend's big lectures at uni, a girl walked in with a crop top and a pair of printed tights - you could see her underwear straight through them - very worrying!

    1. Oh my. That's a cause for nightmares. How is that not a obscenity thing. I mean you can't walk into some place in your underwear.

  10. oh that is soooooo true. I hate people who forget that. I also hate people who wear nude leggings. I seriously always think they are nude. It's just not cool, period.

    By the way you are HOTTT. Whew. Love your outfit today.

  12. Yeap, spotting a pair of leggings barely covering someone else's underwear is definitely not something that goes well with your morning coffee! And it get worst when taking the electric stairs!

  14. hahahahahaha, O I know! I saw this nice looking, slender, long haired, beauty at a public venue last year and I could see EVERYTHING (front and back). I wanted to take her to the side and say "Lady, you leave nothing to the imagination here and I'd strenuously advise you to go home and wear something that covers up your bumm". But of course, I didn't and she wondered off into her world showing her stuff. dang.

    I love how you have done this ensemble, Joanna! You have inspired me again in how I can wear my bomber. ah ~ nice.

    1. That's what I'm talking about. It's a bit much I think. And it plays into the sexualization of women and the propagation that our most important assest is our body and beauty.

      And so glad to have inspired you!

  15. I could not agree more...that is one of my biggest pet peeves! I don't know what I like more about your outfit, the jacket or boots. Totally cool look!

  21. I was talking with a friend of mine on another website earlier about leggings and I mentioned your advice here as a good rule of thumb. She suggested also wearing a pair of 60 denier pantyhose the matching colour of your leggings underneath, and how even though it adds a bit more bulk it also gives you a bit more security if you ever have to bend over. I thought that might be a good idea :)

    1. Anything that keeps your privates from being exposed in public I think is a good idea. It's just that not everyone wants to see it, and exposing yourself should be done only when you want to, you know? Like a sexy corset for your hubby. or someplace where it's a conscious choice.

      Delete
    2. Absolutely yes! The conscious choice is the important part. I can't think of anything more mortifying than exposing yourself to a room full of people without you even knowing it.

  22. Also the other day I was BG on a family show and even though I DID bring a sweater that covered my bum to wear with a pair of leggings the woman from wardrobe ended up putting me in a shirt that just went to my waist.

    Being just a lowly BG I couldn't say no but when I put the outfit on in the change room I actually thought to myself "Joanna would be so disappointed in me if she saw this" ;)
