I know leggings get a bad rep for being camel-toes waiting to happen, but I love them anyway.
Since I refer online shopping to the physical form, I’ve seen some awesome and some horrific leggings. So much greatness and fuglyness that I just had to dedicate a post to this.
Let’s start with the fugly because its also the most hilarious:
1) The “Thunder Thigh”
I have no idea what the designers were thinking. And this is from Nasty Gal and I usually love their stuff.
I bet their “creativity session” went like this:
“Hey, you know the saying ‘thunder thighs’? Why don’t we make it an awesome saying by making them in legging form! Oh, and we have to add lightening cause thunder is actually a sound…haha…I’m so silly. We can’t wear sounds! This is going to be SO haut!!!”
2) The “Vineyard”
Once again, another Nasty Gal offender. I’ve always wanted to look like snakes are crawling up my legs!
Or worms, pointy vines, or spaghetti.
Whatever it may look like to you, it looks like fugly to me.
3) The Skeletor
Nothing says “gosh, I love anatomy” or “man, I wish I was skinny” like these leggings. I’ve seen these on multiple GOOD clothing websites like ASOS and Topshop, but what were they thinking coming out with this?! Way to encourage girls to love their bodies and up their calcium intake.
4) Unicorn Catastrophe
I love unicorns, but not on my lap.
Modcloth is the offender for this one. And what really baffles me is that its sold out!
Chicks apparently love unicorns all over their hamstrings. This is why chicks sometimes baffle me.
I know, those were harsh. But don’t fret, I have some cool alternative that I actually bought for myself:
1) The Mesh Panels
I found this gem on Nasty Gal.
Its actually very flattering and ads some spunk to your bottom half.
2) Hint of Lace
I got a pair from Tobi.
They’re super comfy yet nice enough to go to a party or some sort of night out. And if you’re worried about being cold, there is nude colored fabric behind the lace so you’re all covered up.
And one that probably some of you would put up as “the worst” but I personally love them….
3) The Garder-Belt Legging
I saw them on Nasty Gal, fell in love, and bought it the minute it got back in stock (it sells out quickly).
I know, they’re borderline skanky, but I think if you pair it with the right shirt, this is kinda cool.
Of course some of you might disagree with everything posted
Do you like leggings as much as me? Have you seen cool or fugly leggings online?
