Billie Eilish Wore Leggings Under Her Shorts and Somehow Still Looked Cool

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Do you guys remember back in middle school when leggings and mini denim skirts were a look? Yeah, well it’s a blessing that the skirt part went away and the leggings stayed in style. Leggings have become a staple, seriously the most basic piece of clothing everybody owns. After all, it is kind of the millennial trend: leggings, an oversized T-shirt, and sneakers.

So people were pretty surprised when pop icon Billie Eilish was seen wearing leggings. Basically it breaks Eilish’s cardinal rule of never wearing tight-fitting clothing. But Eilish, as we know by now, does what she wants and doesn’t have to explain herself. And also, she of course made the staple look 100% authentic to her streetwear style. She layered her white leggings with oversized shorts and a T-shirt, layered over a white long-sleeve tee.
