How to wear leggings rule #1: Leggings are not pants or tights.Let’s start with a process of elimination, friends. Leggings are wonderful in so many ways, including their ability to blend style and comfort in one clothing item. But they are not, under any circumstance, considered pants. (Sorry).
They also are not office attire—for that we have plenty of smart on-trend looks to choose from. Nor are leggings to be worn as tights under dresses. To recap: leggings are not pants or tights.
