It’s another Dear Marcy! Ask her anything and hope she doesn’t answer…
My boyfriend keeps taking my leggings and ballet tights and wearing them under his baggy shorts!
It makes me very uneasy. He actually thinks he looks cool. I personally don’t like this look but… I dunno… I’ve been seeing it around on other guys lately.
Is this a new trend that I need to get used to? Or should I break up with him?

It’s not new but it is trending on college campuses right now.
Guys sporting this look think they’re imitating cool basketball players and claim that these ballers invented this new “leggings with shorts” look. Aka, “meggings” or “mantyhose”.
I call Personal Foul.
This look was originated by The Burger King.
Who got it from Shakespeare.
And was stolen by Pearl Jam at some point in the 1990’s.
None of this matters of course, because each and every one of these men look stupid. And, you will look stupid by association. So, hide your tights, burn his baggy “Charlie Brown” shorts, and if worse comes to worst and he starts sporting a Man Bun- YES – break up with him.
Life is too short to have an “I’m With Stupid” sign on your aura.
