No Pants Dance

Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions. People resolve to lose weight, to go back to school, to floss. My friend Amber Clisura made a slightly different resolution this year- no pants. You heard me right. One year. No pants. No, not like the No Pants Subway Ride. Like, skirts. Dresses. Challenging yourself to take the time to put yourself together in the morning. Every day. No matter how hung over you are.

So far, so good. Follow her strangely inspiring experiment at No Pants 2011.

  1. Hi there! You are not alone in this mission: sick and tired of the same old conventional new years’ resolutions I decided to take on the 365 day no pants challenge. Ive just googled the title of my blog “One Year: No Pants” and stumbled across another person undertaking the challenge! Just a word of encouragement to keep up the good work and I’m sure you’re doing great with it! Sometimes I find it difficult and sometimes I just want to slop on a pair of trackie bottoms and lounge around, but this resolution means you’re pretty much presentable all the time, which in turn makes you feel good and more ‘put together’! Anyway hope you’re enjoying and being challenged by the mission, it would be great to hear your thoughts on it!

  2. from as far back as i can remember to when i was 17 i never wore pants, only dresses & skirts. i was very much the girly-girl until one day i got this huge crush on a little skate-boarder & started skating too & wearing ‘skidz’ shorts, since then I have been wearing pants & rarely if ever show my legs. still love wearing skirts & dresses but only with tights or leggings underneath.

    btw this is the first i heard about the ‘no pants subway ride’ i think i love it

  3. I love it!!

    I don’t wear pants (or shorts or anything without at least a 3″ heel) except for the motorcycle gear. And when I’m riding I always have a skirt and a pair of comfy heels in my bag, which then becomes home to all the gear I’ve stripped off.

    My partner finds it amusing that I work out in skirts or sarongs, but I’m just more comfortable. I think I stopped wearing pants with any regularity about 10 years ago, and the change to always heels happened about the same time.

    I should also note that I agree with the comment above that I don’t wear tights or leggings much, although I have developed a love of over the knee and thigh-high styles recently, mainly because they’re warm and less restrictive. I don’t usually have on underpants either unless whatever I’m wearing happens to be see-through. Less layers = happier skin.

  4. Unfortunately I’m in a retail job where I have to go up a 6ft ladder regularly, and am often kneeling on the floor, or I would wear skirts everyday. The other thing is comfy shoes that look nice with skirtage, that I can wear all day. In recent years I have worked more skirts/dresses into my wardrobe. It’s so much more comfy and fresh in the summer, and when you’re sitting down for long periods of time in the car on on the couch. I think I need to look at interesting leggings and more comfy dressy shoes to achieve everyday skirtage – and buy more skirts 🙂

  5. I haven’t worn pants since 2004, I don’t own a single pair. Skirts are so much more comfortable, there is nothing you cannot do while wearing a skirt..there’s a skirt for every occasion! (except skiing maybe..)

  6. Ever since i was 6 or 7 i would not wear pants only skirts and dress’s but in middle school my mom would force me to wear jeans i hated them the itchy feeling weren’t comfortable then i find out most of them are made in sweat shops.

    I’m all for no leggings and no tights too i just always hated them! i feel like i must bare my skin on my legs feels so much comfortable for me!

  7. Love the idea! I have been doing it for about two years now, I quess, I even don’t own pants.
    But I recently joined a gym and lent myself a pair on sweats, so. But outside of the gym I never wear pants, I love skirts and dresses and being a woman!
