I commend you for wearing woolly, winter-weight tights. They are most certainly proper attire for our climate and current sub-zero temperatures. And, really, people of your age do so often seem to go out poorly clad for winter weather.

However, I feel it necessary to point out that tights are meant to be worn under pants or a skirt, and not as the sole garment covering your lower extremities.

You’re welcome.

  1. That annoys you too?
    I'm so glad I'm not the only one.
    I never could understand the teenage obsession with dressing like its 20 degrees warmer, even when I was a teenager.
    I wasn't a very good teenager now that I think about it…

  2. Yeah I've noticed that a few times so far this winter. The first time I almost felt I like should say something, as thought the poor girl wasn't aware that she was wandering around in her underwear. I didn't, and have seen it a few more times since. MOST disturbing of all was an older woman today at Wal-Mart (of course). She might have been about 45-50yrs old and was a wearing cream coloured knit tights, and bright purple low cut blouse, and no, she did not have the body for any of it.
