Etsy edit: Leggings are not pants, but they are awesome

etsy leggings

Need a more geometric way to encase your pins this Autumn? Well you could opt for some sure-to-snag patterned tights, or you could wise up and pick up some of these Aussie made leggings from Etsy seller UpTightSo.

But be warned, these are not for the faint of heart (or wobbly of thigh). And while the almost 3D patterns might Jedi mind trick you into thinking you can wear these as pants…  you can’t ok, you just can’t!

Check out the full range here and let us know what you think!

Before launching in 2007 I worked for a whole bunch of women's glossies both here and in the UK including Shop Til You Drop, New Woman (RIP), (also RIP), Cosmopolitan UK, and I even had a column in FHM (RI... I might be jinxed!). And before all that I was listing shopping as my number one hobby from about the age of five.

I love Uptights leggings! I have the bird print ones 🙂


I am pretty sure this is the brand that does the awesome little sail boat ones... I WANT!


How do i choose there are so many i want them all!


Yay for being stylish and comfortable!


Blackmilk have an amazing range of leggings. They look great on the models as pants but I've seen a few wobbly of thigh wearing them around Melbourne aswell..


As a wobbly thighed girl, def not pants but under a black skirt some of these are just gorgeous for a pop of color!
