Glorious New Days in Women’s Fashion

I’m currently in Vancouver BC on work and have to say that it is both a lovely, international, and urbane city, very walkable and completely pro-bike (bike lanes through downtown – yes!).  I’ve lucked upon some great weather and am here working on the launch of Urbanspoon’s ipad application that does table management, CRM, and online reservations for restaurants.  As a first time visitor who lucked upon great weather, I thought it wise to scour the neighborhoods on foot to get a lay of the “dining” landscape in between meetings.

 

Truly and international city filled with great people, restaurants, and great fashion-sense.

 

 

All this time on my feet has lead me to really soak-in the culture and meet some interesting restaurateurs.

It’s also helped me appreciate the fashion phenomenon that is leggings or stretch pants as the sole means of pants.  Not just as under-the-skirt or “long-johns”, but as the only pants they wear!  Yes, younger women in Seattle and the Bay Area (as well as Omaha, Sandusky, Honolulu, and Mars) have started to embrace this in a certain sense, but in Vancouver, this is literally what you wear if you are a woman, it’s mandatory I believe.

 

This is what I remember women's fashion being... Denim Shirts and High-Waisted Jeans! Just as long as we rush back to this by the time Andie is 15 I'm good.

 

I realize there is no way that talking about how thrilled I am that leggings have become the go-to pants for women these days is NOT going to make me sound both lecherous and completely lame, but it should be mentioned that this is a phenomenon and people must speak out in favor of this!!!!!

 

Whoever came up with this leggings as pants thing is brilliant...

    I am loath to disagree with the Kung Fool whose observations so often approach genius. But I am afraid some followers of this style may not recall their 1st grade teacher’s waring, that just because so and so can do it doesn’t mean everyone can. The syle may be attractive on some, but if you don’t have legs for the, horrible. they can spoil the fun for everyone. P.S. Ever seen flesh colored leggings, rarely a pretty sight.
