CLEVELAND, Tennessee- A popular clothing choice for young girls and women was recently put in check by a Tennessee woman who wanted to lay down the proper rules when it comes to wearing leggings.

Jamie Higdon Randolph from Cleveland, Tennessee recently posted a sassy video message to her Facebook page directed at women who like to wear ‘leggings.’

In her video titled, “Leggings ain’t pants,” Jamie said she was on her way to buy a new pair of leggings after she couldn’t find her own leggings and went to borrow a pair from her daughter. When Jamie realized those didn’t quite fit she left for the store to get herself a new pair and decided to share her thoughts about the popular fashion trend.

“Ladies, it’s pretty much leggin’ weather,’ she says to start off her video. ‘I love leggin’ weather. I don’t care if you don’t like leggins, don’t judge me, they are comfortable. They don’t cut into you, they’re always the right length. You can dress them up, dress them down, you can look like a frat girl or you can look pretty classy in them depending on what you choose to pair with them.”

Jamie went on to set the record straight when it comes to how the leg wear should be worn, “Some of you people like to use‪ leggins’ as britches, as pants, pants,” she says. “That’s not how they’re supposed to be worn.
‘If you can’t wear a shirt that covers your tail so that I can’t tell that you got some Aztec-print thongs on, you don’t need to be wearing ’em, [sic]” she said.

Jamie added, if a pair of leggings are so tight that others can see tattoos through them, then they “shouldn’t be worn, period. That’s called pantyhose, honey.”

She ended the video with a short summary- “Don’t do it.. You’re welcome!”

The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 12 million times.
