A Leg Up

On the same 1985 vein, let me tell you what I saw today at the store.

Leggings. For adults. Some made from denim and called (you ready for this?) jeggings.

I think I love that word.

Will I or won't I, that is now the question. Fond memories of leggings...but can I do it again?

On the Pro side: big shirt and tight pants is pretty much how I dress already, unintentionally. Also, the laziness factor is a big thing to consider.

Cons: They're leggings.

I have a lot to think about tonight.

  1. well let me tell you, all the Berlin hipsters (born post-1990) are doing it. But here's the thing: you can't wear then the way we used to. You have to pair them with shirts from ca. 1982 (not '87), and wear your hair in a top-knot. Then add Ray Ban wayfarer sunglasses and a scornful glare for everyone who isn't as "indie" as you, get yourself a really skinny guy in a v-neck and an ironic moustache, and you'll be really cool.
