Wearing leggings as pants is deemed immodest
The dress code entails that student clothing “shall not be transparent” and should “not reveal undergarments”, as stated under the category School Dress in the student planner.
But some students have taken to wearing only leggings as pants, paired with short tops that do nothing to uphold an overall modest appearance. Is this against or in line with the dress code?
Freshman Katlynn Beaufeaux said it is against the dress code, and that she would never follow this new trend.
“No [I would never wear leggings as pants], because sometimes they’re see-through,” Beaufeux said. “You have your underwear showing and everything showing that you shouldn’t be showing.”
However, Beaufeaux believes that students can reach an in-between when it comes to wearing only leggings as pants.
“I think it depends on how your shirt’s sitting,” Beaufeaux said. “Girls who have long shirts that go down to their mid thigh or knees, that’s fine.”
Junior Shelby Boos agrees with Beaufeaux about never personally wearing leggings as pants as well as a possible in-between for those who do.
“At least wear a longer shirt so that it covers more,” Boos said. “And [I would never wear leggings as pants] because it’s unflattering. It looks lazy.”
Even sophomore Analicia Carrillo thinks wearing leggings as pants with a short shirt is a major no-no, and she says she would never wear leggings that way.
“That’s just weird,” Carrillo said. “I believe you should wear something over it.”
Beaufeaux summed up her thoughts in a single, straight forward statement.
“You don’t want your butt showing,” Beaufeaux said. “And jeans look just as good, anyway.”
