Leggings as Pants - In School

<< < (2/23) > >>

The fact that the school is obsessing over how young women dress, but only  as it affects the young men sits wrong with me.

Exactly!  My oldest DD's elementary school's dress code pretty much states the above. My daughter is a 1st grader so leggings are wonderful when she wants to wear a dress because she can play freely on the playground. 

What's worse is seeing adult women wearing leggings as pants.  Many pairs are just too transparent.  I own a pair that is completely opaque, but I wear it with a sweater dress that hits slightly above the knee.  There is no way I would wear them as pants!

This is my biggest pet peeve. I've had MANY a talk with DH about how leggings are NOT pants, and that DD needs to have a tunic or skirt over them. And my DD is only 5! Nothing makes me more crazy than seeing revealing panty lines--on a toddler, no less. And I saw a lot of that this weekend when I took DD to the zoo.

I agree.  School is supposed to prepare you for the real world.  Well, in the real world, you can't always dress as you please.

I agree - i think wearing them with a dress/tunic/long shirt is fine.

Wearing them *as* pants - to me it looks like you forgot to wear a skirt.
