I was out to dinner last night and noticed a peculiar and utterly distasteful trend, many of the waitress staff were in leggings. Now I'm talking, ankle length, mid-calf leggings and even a leather trim legging spotted across the restaurant. If you partake in any form of social media, or have stepped out of your house within the last year, you're not new to this 'leggings as pants' epidemic that has broken out faster than fake Cartier's. While this may be acceptable in a fast food environment, I was appalled and would have never expected this trend to infiltrate a high end business. I won't out the business (as to not belittle an entire company for their possible poor management at one location), but I will say that I most definitely will not be back. I'm not one to complain about such frivolous matters but it's hard not to notice when everyone dining in were well dressed while the staff was navigating the hall in their lounge wear. I've never felt classier in my entire life.
You can't go wrong with black and white for dinner or drinks after a long day at work in your slimming trousers and perfectly appropriately pointed toe pumps. If you ever happen to feel overdressed (which is never a problem in my books), just remember that you won't be frowned upon for dressing like you have your life together :p. That's why I always say, when in doubt - business casual's your way out! Okay... I've never actually said that but business casual is always my go-to!
