In praise of leggings and jeggings

“Pantyhose are a male conspiracy.”

I found myself agreeing with that statement by a colleague the other day at work. She had stopped by my desk to tell me how nice — and comfortable — my black leggings looked.

And warm with their fleece lining, I had told her — so much more practical than pantyhose.

Indeed, I seldom wear pantyhose anymore. I’m really into leggings and jeggings, which I can wear with a dress or a long sweater or top. I wear nylon anklets with them indoors, and any kind of heel that suits my mood that day. My colleague particularly liked that combination’s look, she said.

My g/f and I bought some jean jeggings online recently (see picture above) — I love them so much that we ordered more. And the local Dollarama store is selling aforementioned black leggings and other colours for a mere $3.50.

Not to say that I will never wear pantyhose again. Once in a while, maybe a few times a year for certain occasions.

But some longtime readers of my various blogs will see this as some sort of evolution for me because just a decade ago, I was singing the praises of pantyhose. And they might even be saying “I told you so.”

  1. When are women going to stop blaming men for everything and take responsibility for their own decisions? Or are they really as easily manipulated as the say they aren’t?
