Have women in Sweden lost their collective mind when it comes to leggings? That is essentially the question posed by an expatriate blogger based in Stockholm who observes that girls in 2010 still wear black short leggings no matter what dress they wear.

“Pink skirt? Black leggings. White flower dress? Black leggings. C’mon people!!! GET OFF THE BLACK OBSESSION! We don’t want to see knee length black leggings when you are wearing an adorable printed skirt” says Sapphire, the pseudonym of the person behind Lost in Stockholm blog.

In the caption for this photo, Sapphire writes: “Pull-up jean leggings with neon t-shirt. If you grew up in the 1980s and your parents did not torture you enough with stupid leggings and crazy graffiti neon pink tops, well, here’s your chance to do it again!”

“No one should wear black leggings with pretty dresses,” the writer advises, in a posting titled: “Swedish Fashion 2010: The Horror Continues.”
