Okay, so the Fug Girls have a serious hate on for leggings and by my revealing this to you, it is quite possible that they will never and I mean never EVER loan me Intern George. Friends, there are few things worth a life completely devoid of Intern George, but that is just the risk I am willing to take. Black leggings, when worn with the right outfit and an appropriately high heel can make your curvy calves look great! The I’ve found are the Avenue’s Seamless Long Line Shaper. There’s a lot of stretch so it doesn’t feel like a sausage casing and the waist is high enough to smooth any lumps without rolling down.
They should not be worn with big frumpity sweaters, or wide belts or anything else that smacks of the 1980’s. Do not let the marketing people fool you, the 80’s were bad. I was there. It was all cocaine and acid washed jeans and getting it on in the bathroom with some bepermed dude from East Germany in a Members Only jacket while Depeche Mode performed their 17-minute live extended version of Personal Jesus. IT HAPPENED, MAN. I mean, not to me –I was 9 years old– but still.
Leggings are like a loaded gun: if you don’t use them properly, you’ll end up hurting someone, but when used effectively (and by this I mean at a target, not at a Target) it’s all chocolate and rainbows and magical stress-relief unicorns, at least that’s how it is in Texas.
