One meaty pair of tights.

Black Milk ClothingIn this frigid winter weather, we’re all about layering our outfits, and leggings are one of our must-have items. From prints to bright colors, we love to layer a look with a good pair of tights.

And, being the committed tight-wearers that we are, we love looking for new and chic styles of leggings we haven’t seen before to spice up our wardrobe.

Behold, the meatiest tights around. These leggings are designed to look like you’re not wearing pants (or even skin, for that matter). 

“This is an idea that we have been thinking about for a while,” says the website Black Milk Clothing, which sells the Australian-made leggings. “A few people encouraged me to do it but I never quite got around to it. Then I got a spare afternoon one day and decided to have a good go at making it work. It worked ... perhaps a little too well! Definitely our most 'meaty' design.”

And although we were hesitant that anyone would actually wear these in public, we stand corrected — because then we scrolled down and found evidence in the form of Instagram photos featuring people wearing these creations — yes, as pants.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
