Our Purpose:
So tights aren’t pants, and they’ve never been pants. However, people wearing tights (and leggings) as pants is a modern-day epidemic, spreading at alarming rates. Some people feel very strongly that tights ≠ pants. We do too, and so we have set out to document tights-as-pants in one natural habitat: the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

But we can’t do this alone! This is a team effort, and YOU can help us out.

How to participate in UIUCnopants:
Next time you’re walking to class and see a pantsless kid in front of you, instead of simply staring in shock, awe, and horror, whip out that cell phone and snap a picture. Then send it over to uiucnopants@gmail.com and if we agree with you that this person is indeed not wearing pants, we’ll post it as the next post we can!

What to include in your UIUCnopants submission:

  • Photo of the offending nopantster
  • Your name, as you would like to be credited on the site
  • Where you took the photo (it should be somewhere in the UIUC campus area)
  • If you’re feeling extra ambitious: A funny title or caption for your photo. Otherwise, we’ll write our own!

    Just wanted to post saying this site is hilarious. Great work on documenting the phenomenon known as “no pants” on campus. It really is an interesting trend. Until I saw this site, I never realized the uniform look to the no pants (Ugg boots and leggings?!). I can’t believe people are getting so bent out of shape on these comments though. Leggings have never equaled pants and they are not more comfortable than actual pants. I know I couldn’t walk outside my dorm room with everything out in the open and on display for the world to see.

    Good work and thanks for the laughs! :)

      Thanks for the love!! The nopants uniform is something we didn’t really notice either until we had a bunch of posts up and commenters pointed out the similarities. There’s definitely a lot going on with this trend (more than just the lack of pants) — interesting points about conformity and overall fashion behavior.

      We are also a bit baffled by all the negative feedback. If you hate the site, don’t come here! Lots of people clearly are entertained; this site is for them :)

    I was shown this site the other day and I LOVE IT. I give major props to the person(s) who created this site. But my question is…why would you want to “cop a look” at some VPL and girls who have no business having their behinds hanging out? And when has it become legal to wear no pants? This is a disgusting trend and I can’t wait until it phases out. Seriously, my poor eyes. In the meantime, I will just laugh and shake my head at how unflattering this look is and girls that could very well look much better if they just wore jeans (assuming no muffin tops…but that’s a diferent story). This is just one of those trends that no one can pull off…not even skinny girls! Leggings may be comfortable, but how is that wedgie treating you? Yeah, that’s what I thought. I don’t want to see cracks and rolls any more than I have to, thank you.

    I’ve been a fan of the website for a long time now, and I often find myself checking it to see if new pictures are posted. But here’s the kicker, I’m a “no-pants” fan! I love wearing leggings, they’re extremely comfortable if you get the right size, which is when they aren’t squeezing your legs/hips in and giving you muffin top (I buy a size bigger, also gives little to no panty line). I also think that what is ESSENTIAL when wearing leggings is that YOUR BUTT IS COVERED– that is when leggings are acceptable as bottoms. So WHATEVAHH to all the haters, I know when it is and isn’t appropriate to wear leggings, sometimes some shirts don’t look okay with jeans, they are MORE FLATTERING with leggings. Some of the girls out there are wearing these types of tops (usually looser, flowy, or babydoll-ish, or even a hoodie/tshirt with a very long camisole/undershirt) with jeans and they LOOK HORRIBLE! Think about it, a lot of shirts should not be warn with flared jeans, and sometimes skinnies don’t look good…so to me, those people are the fools.

    GIRLS, wear your “no-pants” with pride, just wear them the right way! And rock your uggs and northfaces. Perhaps it is a “uniform” but it’s warm, and I know that I and my fellow ugg/legging wearers know that it is an extremely comfortable combo– I feel bad for those people who will never experience the comfort in wearing leggings!

    I LOVE leggings, love wearing them, pretty much they’re the most comfortable PANTS I have. However! I also love this site, I’m pretty much waiting for the day I get on it. Fuck it, I’ll wear what I want, do what I want, guys like to look, who the fuck cares? I cover my ass with a long t-shirt or a cute top, I love my uggs and my northface.

    To the girl who made this website: I probably hate what you look like.


  7. whatisthepoint says:

    If the goal of this site is to document people wearing leggings, why are you snapping pictures of people who are not wearing pants period or wearing short shorts? Stick to your original plan of documenting people wearing leggings, don’t just start posting anything you think is considered “no pants.” That just completely ruins the point of your site, since you are supposed to be documenting this silly trend. People who actually are not wearing pants should not even be included on here since that’s not actually part of this leggings trend.

    • Kelsey says:

      The website is called “UIUCNOPANTS” … no pants. They are documenting people they don’t think are wearing pants. Get it? They can put whatever they want on this website.

  8. getoverit1 says:

    @ whatisthepoint and lovesleggings… i think the two of you…just really need to shut the hell up. It’s just a funny, cutsey site and you two are taking yourselves (and this site) ENTIRELY too serious. I swear some people get set off by the most ridiculous things…just grow up and get over it.

    Also lovesleggings there is really no need to hurl insults at the people who created this site. And guys are probably staring at you cuz you look well… trashy as hell…and who want to introduce THAT to their mom. Yo no se chica.

    • LoveLeggings says:

      learn what trashy means. look at every magazine, vogue, women’s wear daily, elle, you have leggings. high fashion models, do not equal trashy. trailer park does. and re read what i wrote, i like the website, i cant wait till i’m on it, but im also damn proud of my leggings.

  9. Robin says:

    I’m thinking of changing my Halloween costume to a NoPants theme, but I don’t have any idea where one would obtain them. I know where to purchase pants: the store, but what anti-store would sell nopants? Help, please!

  10. elektrogirl says:

    I wish I had time to take a picture today, but I caught a sight of the worst example of no pants I’ve ever seen: leggings shorts over leggings. Just as two wrongs don’t make a right, two no pant do not make a pair of pants.
