School urges students to cover up their backsides
While Adney stopped short of banning these clothing items altogether, he said that students need to "keep things covered up." He argued that girls wearing these pants cause a distraction, especially since they don't always pair them with longer shirts that cover their backsides.
"It's not about trying to be the clothing police, it's just a sensitivity issue," Adney told The Star Tribune. "Hopefully with us being the first to speak up, it will create a lot of conversations."
The argument has been met with support from many parents and teachers, but some students don't understand why comfortable clothing should be discouraged.
While leggings and other tight pants are popular right now, many fashion experts suggest pairing them with longer tops, sweaters or blazers. Individuals on a budget can find these trendy clothing items at Plato's Closet and other stores that specialize in selling used clothing.
