Warning! I'm in cheetah leggings. Once you look, it cannot be unlooked. I have gone back and forth over the wearing of leggings as pants. Admittedly, they are super comfy and so easy to throw on with the elastic waist I love so much. It's perfect SAHM attire. However, with the absence of pockets or a fly aren't they just tights?
In order to pass them off as pants, consider:
1. Covering your girly bits or having some room in the crotch area. In other words, say no to camel toe.
2. Making sure your leggings are really thick. Not sure if they are? Take a camera pic of yourself with the flash on. You'll see what everyone else is seeing. Raise your hand if you've seen butts and underthings in tights worn as pants. *raises hand*
These leggings aren't really for hanging out at the playground with the Lululemon yoga pants wearing, Starbucks cup clutching crew. They're a little on the sexy mama side. These are more appropriate for light errand running and if you happen to find an afternoon dance party (feel free to throw your own), you're all set.
I found this animal print dream during one of my thrift adventures. I spotted (ha ha) a shiny animal print over in the mens' section. I continued shopping but kept seeing them out of the corner of my eye and decided to mosey on over for a look. I'm so glad I did.
In my hands, I had a pair of high waist, super stretchy 80s spandex leggings with Spanx like qualities. When I wear them nothing jiggles. All of that in addition to having a cheetah print! A dream come true. They don't make them like this anymore. I had to have them despite my leggings as pants views.
Are leggings apart of your SAHM style?
