A fifth grader in Atlanta is taking on the city Board of Education’s dress code in an effort to be able to wear leggings at school.
LuLaRoe, a direct-selling company known for its leggings, is again being called a pyramid scheme in a new class-action complaint seeking $1 billion.
A new class action lawsuit accuses LuLaRoe, the direct selling company known for its leggings and maxi skirts, of being a "pyramid scheme" after changes were made to its buyback policy. Here's everything you need to know about it.
The leggings company has changed its buyback policy, prompting sellers with extra inventory and empty pockets to launch a petition demanding compensation.
Along with a number of other everyday wardrobe staples, schools have targeted the stretchy pants. Most recently, a South Carolina principal issued a warning to female students wearing the tight bottoms. “I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now, unless you are a size zero or two and you wear something like that, even though you’re not fat, you look fat,” Heather Taylor, the principal of Stratford High School, was recorded saying on Wednesday during a discussion with ninth and tenth graders, WCBD News 2 reports. Lots are upset by Taylor’s statements and have taken to the school’s Facebook page to comment on the situation, with many saying the administrator should be fired.
The post warns consultants that they might "get in trouble" if they don't abide by LuLaRoe's "Culture of Modesty."
LuLaRoe, a multilevel marketing company known for its leggings and empowering its women sellers, has seen an increase in its community of male sellers.
LuLaRoe has promised to refund customers who bought leggings that “rip like wet toilet paper,” but newly leaked comments from its CEO have sparked more fury.
On Tuesday, the company proved it’s listening. The controversy surrounding the four-year-old company’s merchandise stems back to at least February, when a customer filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Western Pennsylvania, “alleging that it has been illegally collecting sales tax in states that don’t have it.” From there, LuLaRoe was indicted in a chorus of complaints for the allegedly poor quality of its wildly popular patterned leggings. At the time, Patrick Winget, LuLaRoe’s head of production, wrote in an email to retailers: “The leggings may get holes, because we weaken the fibers to make them buttery soft,” adding, “We have done all we can to fix them.” Winget said the company uses a special airbrushing effect to achieve the texture.
Kerry Folan penned a critical op-ed that describes how her recent move from NYC to the D.C. suburbs enlightened her on the presence of yoga pants outside the studio.
A mom was told her toddler’s cartoon monster leggings were too scary for preschool. A mom put her toddler in what she thought was a cute pair of cartoon monster-themed leggings, but they were deemed too scary and were banned by his preschool. Apparently, another mom at the daycare complained, saying the leggings had frightened her child.
Far be it from us to pick on a company, especially one providing a variety of such popular and comfy, patterned leggings for those who seek them out. But, we’ve found that some folks on the Internet at sharing some unfortunate, albeit hilarious missteps in the way their LuLaRoe leggings have been stitched together.
Leggings are often a woman’s first choice because of their versatility. They can be dressed up or worn casually for convenience, and shoppers often opt for them because they’re more comfortable than jeans.
The Duchess tries her hand at abseiling @mountainrescueuk in Snowdonia https://t.co/5qKuOGnVBP— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) November 20, 2015 If the fairytales are to be believed, then one of the reasons why Prince William fell for Kate Middleton when they were students at the University of St. Andrews was because of how to down to earth she was. They went for walks in the woods, drank beer at the local pub, went hunting with the Queen’s corgis, and skiing in the Alps. Now, as the parent of two heirs to the throne, it seems that her adventurous spirt still comes out sometimes between dressing up in Jenny Packham for galas and attending charity events across the kingdom.
You may recall a video that went viral last week, of a Tennessee woman ranting about her disdain for what she considers to be too-sheer leggings. In response, the good folks at Fox & Friends decided to bring in a panel to dissect the situation further. Comprised entirely of presumably heterosexual fathers—Fox’s legal analyst Arthur Aidala, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson, and Andrew Sansone, the husband of Fox’s Julie Banderas—the panel is asked whether its members find it acceptable for the ladies in their lives to “parading in public” while wearing leggings. Because, you know, it isn’t enough to walk down the street and hear what cat callers think of what you look like.
Tory Burch’s brand new line, Tory Sport, is loaded with casual, classic sportswear, perfect for wearing to the gym, from the gym, at the gym, and all times in between. Just don’t call it “athleisure.” “You know, there used to be something called leisure suits… I can’t really explain it, it’s just not my favorite name!” Burch told Yahoo Style Wednesday, at the opening of the Tory Sport pop-up store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood—the very same location in which she debuted her namesake line 11 years earlier. Instead, Tory Sport’s Fall 2015 collection includes a category of clothing called ‘Coming & Going’—which joins a range performance wear for a wide variety of athletic activities, including tennis, golf, yoga, running, and water sports. There are about 150 pieces in total, ranging in price from $55 for performance tops to $550 for outerwear. Burch, who’s been interested in doing sportswear for eight years—and actually began working on Tory Sport three years ago—saw a gap in the market for classic and elegant, yet still functional, clothing. “For me, I wasn’t finding the kind of [sportswear] I loved from high school and college.
