A Fashion Friendly PSA - Leggings Are NOT Pants

Dear Internet,

Thank you for this lovely diagram.

As a self-proclaimed fashion expert, I've declared time and time again that LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS. I repeat, leggings are not pants. Yes, I am a leggings enthusiast on multiple occasions but I have two simple requests when wearing leggings:

1) Are your lady parts covered by your shirt/tunic/dress etc?
2) Is your butt covered by the same article of clothing mentioned above?

If you are meeting both of those qualifications, you may proceed onward and have a nice day. If not, please invest in a longer shirt. Unless you're at the gym, I have no intentions of seeing your booty through your leggings. 

My favorite "day off ensemble" with leggings has been the VS Pink Essential V-Neck Tee paired with an LA Made Deep Scoop Tank underneath. On my 5'1" frame, the two pieces together are long enough to have "all my parts covered" and then I throw on my jean jacket and I'm out the door.
