Wednesday, March 4: Reader Submission

Today's reader submission comes from Spencer who had to speak out, "in response to the alarming trend of sorority girls thinking that leggings constitute as appropriate bottom-wear." That's right, ladies, leggings do not replace pants and I must admit that I totally agree on Spencer with this one. He even included some helpful websites that explain why leggings and tights do not replace the need to get dressed:

Leggings but no pants.
Dear little sorostitute:
We all see your butt.

Dumbest Fashion Statements Ever
Leggings are not pants

I could not agree more with this statement. Leggings are practical under things when it's cold, but they do not constitute an actual article of clothing by themselves. Why is all of the icky stuff from the late 80's and early 90's coming back??
