there’s just no need for… mid calf leggings

I want to start off by saying that I have worn mid-calf leggings and I am pretty sure most of the girls (and boys) reading this blog have to. A couple of years ago, when leggings where the absolute item to wear, at some point, you and I wore the mid calf legging. With all their ruching, zips, colour and pattern variations, the mid-calf legging was literally cool and trendy for the duration of a deep sigh of relief. However, for some unknown reason, “the fashion friendly gym-pants” are still being worn by women, and worse off still being sold to women.

If you must wear leggings, please opt for the full legging – as in the one that ends just above your ankle. Remember the pedal-pusher pants? Well, when you wear mid calf leggings you are like the kind of girl wearing pedal-pusher pants. Not cool or fashionable. In fact, I would refer to you as badly dressed, just based on the mid calf leggings.
Whilst we are on the topic of leggings, and you’re mulling over throwing out your mid calf leggings or wearing them to the gym from now on, please do not wear loose leggings. If you do that, then you might as well have bought pants.
