Can we get a hell yasss?! Several members of the Duggar family have been rockin' pants these days, but we actually shouldn't be too surprised. Back in 2015, Joy-Anna and Jinger wore the daring style while heading out in a snowstorm, and we. Are. Shook. If you're saying to yourself, "That's totally normal. You can't wear a skirt in a blizzard," tell that to Joseph Duggar's now wife Kendra Caldwell — who sported a long frock before heading out in the cold.
Redditors pointed out the throwback photo over the weekend, which family friend Krista posted in February. "The weather is gross here in NYC today and I'm stressed about a paper, so to procrastinate I decided to delete some of the 15,000+ photos on my phone and found this gem from "the big" snowstorm of 2015," she captioned the snap. "I miss these women. I miss Arkansas. And honestly, I miss college. Hopefully, I'll be moving back soon #nostalgia #friends#arkansas."
Of course, matriarch Michelle wore leggings that same year — at the gym! In a resurfaced clip, the mother-of-19 broke her own rule, but that wasn't the first and only time she was seen in them. In December, the Duggar Family Official Facebook page shared a pic of the 51-year-old wearing pants at the beach, and fans were quick to comment. "Michelle is in VIOLATION for wearing pants," one person wrote at the time. Another added, "Is that pants on Michelle!?" while a third chimed in, "Scandalous, look at all that leg."
In their 2014 book, Growing Up Duggar, Jana, Jessa, Jill, and Jinger wrote about why they dress modestly. "We do not dress modestly because we are ashamed of the body God has given us; quite the contrary. We realize that our body is a special gift from God and that He intends for it to be shared only with our future husband."
They even named examples of the kind of clothes they tried to steer clear of. "We avoid low-cut, cleavage-showing, gaping, or bare-shouldered tops; and when needed, we were an undershirt. We try to make it a habit to always cover the top of our shirt with our hand when we bend over. We don’t want to play the peek-a-boo game with our neckline." Times they are a-changin'!
