Well, I wouldn’t have expected it, but my “Tights are not pants” series has proven to be one of the most popular on my blog. With two installments so far, I think it’s time for a third… although it will probably be the last, as one can beat a dead horse only for so long 😉 . I wouldn’t have thought it possible to continue, except that this fashion faux pas just keeps generating so much material. Isn’t “faux pas” a great expression? It literally means “false step” in French, the language of origination. And it dovetails well with the premise, taking a false step by forgetting that you’re not wearing pants.
Don’t get me wrong–I think tight leggings or thick tights can be worn on the right body with little else, but there should at least be some coverage of the derriere and crotch by a short skirt, shorts, long shirt, or shawl.
Do you even need to ask?
I hope everyone got a good laugh out of my previous post about “tights are not pants“. There was more material available, but I figured it best to save it for a part II. And so without further delay, here you go:
Indeed, help stop the madness! 🙂 [photo courtesy of Use A Mirror]

Yes, of course tights are literally not pants. They may cover the legs in a similar fashion, but they cannot or should not replace pants. They’re not designed to be worn as pants, because there’s really insufficient coverage in the panty/brief area. But apparently, there are enough people out there crossing the line that someone decided to create a website specifically to call out the atrocity. Visit “Tights Are Not Pants“.
