Chicago appears, somewhat belatedly, to be in the throes of the unfortunate tights as pants trend. Add to multiple sightings in Wicker Park and Bucktown this recent Facebook post by a former coworker:

“Was working a bead show on Sunday, and this woman behind me was wearing winter tights as pants, with a short shirt that didn’t cover her flat butt and camel-toe. Ick! Had to see this all day! And, yes, tights, not leggings. Tights.”

Please, let’s be careful out there.
