I do like skinny jeans as I wore them above with a large jumper or similar. Was going to wear a jersey red dress — but thought this would be too dressed-up. My eyes can't take it much more!

As a matter of fact, I think I have been thinking about leggings too much lately - I am actually writing an entirely new hub about leggings. I also target yoga pants in this one, too. I expect I will be done with it around Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for the votes! DzyMsLizzy - Oh no, the stirrup pants! They were so awkward because you had to be the perfect height for them.
If you were a little too tall, it would basically keeping pulling your pants down all day. I remember that weird pocket that would form at the top of my legs as those pants tried to go south all day long.
I hope they never make a comeback!!! Thanks for the vote and thanks for the comment. Laughed my rear off! Well, metaphorically speaking anyway. Regrettably not actually possible. I remember these--but we never called them "leggings," they were just "stretch pants. And even further back, there were 'stirrup pants' which were the same exact thing, but with a sling at the bottom that fitted under you foot, holding the pants from creeping upwards. I'm dating myself now! I wore leggings in the 80s--with long, very long, shirts.
I don't like them anymore now. I prefer looser clothing these days. What are they thinking? Especially in a professional setting. Oh, I feel your pain! Usually skinny people can still make leggings work for them. One of my friends wears a really long shirt or dress over leggings and then puts boots on. The boots give the appearance that your legs are not as skinny. Hope that works for you! Impressive article, I am too skinny whenever I wear leggings my leg look like a toothpick so what could be the alternative that I can wear?
Or how to make leggings suits on me. Thank you so much. I also have one about the pajamas, too. Now could you please address the people who insist on going out in public to the grocery store and else where in their Pajamas and slippers??????
I've gained some weight recently, so leggings are my best pants right now I think someone that does not know how to even spell the word ridiculous might not want to judge me. I am trying to help others not look ridiculous when wearing things in an inappropriate way that grosses out the rest of society. Have a nice day! How rediculous you sound. How about you let others wear things the way they want. I hate it when people are so insistant about the right and wrong ways to wear things.
Its quite pathetic really. Sunshine - I think with a long shirt or a skirt, leggings can look good on adults, but it is all about the style of the leggings and how it compliments the rest of the outfit. I've seen some horrific leggings nightmares at the mall. For this reason, leggings are bound to go out of style soon for the rest of us. Thanks for the comment! Thanks for sharing this with your daughter. Even though it sounds like she doesn't need the help, she probably knows girls that do.
Thanks for the timely useful information you shared with us. I will be sharing this with my teen-aged daughter who is fond of wearing leggings, though there is not much to worry about but just in case she forgot and goes overboard: There should be an age limit on who wears leggings.
Under ten yrs old, maybe younger. I've never seen anyone over the age of ten look good in a pair of leggings. Thank you for getting on board with me on this one. In a perfect world, everyone would follow the rules of leggings. I know it isn't happening when I see the way people are dressed at the mall, but I can only do so much. I think there are a few people I work with who could do with reading this I love my leggings, but only ever wear them out of my house with a long top, or a woolen dress and boots.
I wouldn't inflict my horrendous backside on anyone!!! Trust me, I see the same look in the U. I am not just talking about skinny or average sized girls either. Great article, if only more people would pay attention! Walking down any street in England, you're pretty much guaranteed to see a girl wearing poor quality, black leggings as if they were skinny jeans - normally with white underwear underneath which you can see all too much of.
I suspect you and your classmates are really skinny and can get away with it to some degree. It still doesn't mean it is a good idea, but I see it everyday and appreciate you admitting you do it.
I appreciate you views and opinions but it doesn't mean I'm going to stop. I think it looks really good: I'm really happy I could help. If I can just change one life at a time with this hub, I feel good. I hope she takes your advice. Tunics were created for a reason. I definitely need to show this hub to my younger sister!
She's 14 and she is one of those girls who wears leggings with short shirts and also wears jeggings as jeans. I tell her it looks ridiculous and she just won't listen to me.
I'm showing her this for sure! Thanks for the humorous yet very informative read. Yes, Shaina, feel free to buy some leggings and just simply wear them the right way. Too many people are exposing the world to way too much! With a long shirt or tunic, leggings look great. Thanks for dropping by and happy I could help! You've done a very good job with this and I enjoyed reading!
I've been meaning to get leggings but then I go to the mall and notice how horrible most of the girls make them look there. Now I know for sure that they aren't ment to be worn those ways. Thanks for letting me know I can wear leggings without joining the circus!!! I am glad you think so. I can't believe some of the interesting looks I see when I am out. Even just a tag that says, "No one wants to see your butt; wear a tunic.
I am glad I inspired you to try them again with tunics. It can be a great look. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment! I stopped wearing them cuz i thought i looked really fat in them. After reading your article, i just want to get a proper tunic for them!! I want to buy more leggings yay!! I am glad you are on board with my mission, too. Everyone should wear leggings the correct way! Thank you for your support. I hope people take your tips with them the next time they are out shopping for leggings.
Get it right, ladies. Print out Jeannieinabottle's tips and tape them to your full length mirror to make sure you follow the rules of leggings to a "T". You know the correct way to wear leggings! Thanks for sharing with everyone. That way, anyone that is in doubt can read how you wear them and do the same.
I wear black leggings in the summer at times, but with long, stylish tops and nice accessories to match. I love them as they are comfortable and gives me freedom of movement. Yes, I do think a warning label might help out people buying leggings. Maybe then they would understand how to wear them correctly.
And no, you are not alone at all with your opinion on leggings I do also agree with you on stores having more long top options. Sometimes I buy a long top, yet it shrinks after one wash! No wonder they go out of fashion. Maybe they should come attached with a warning! I can't believe the sights I see walking around the mall and even in the work place. Thanks for speaking up on this subject.
I thought it was me not being open minded! It would be nice to have more long tops in the stores to choose from though. Oh Jennifer, you've opened up a whole new subject. I've actually debated this myself as to whether yoga pants are leggings, and if so, do different rules apply to them? I have been known to wear yoga pants and not keep my rear end covered.
However, since they are thicker, I think this is more acceptable. I am honestly not sure. I am considering investigating this subject further for a future hub. Thanks for the vote up and for the comment! I guess I consider my yoga pants to be a part of the legging family.
They're a staple for my around the house mommy look. I didn't wear many leggings when they were in fashion in the 80's and they're not any easier to find now. For them to be long enough I need a 35" inseam. A top that is long enough to cover my bottom is just as much trouble.
I'll wear leggings under ski pants or around the house, but I do wear yoga pants to the grocery store sometimes. When you see people there in their mismatched pajamas and house shoes I don't feel like I've fallen too far off the fashion mark.
Thanks for sharing your fashion tips. Voted up and sharing! Thanks for the votes up! Leggings are so cute if worn the right way.
Thanks for helping promote my hub. Voted up up and up! I love leggings - my favorite look is my black leggings with ankle boots - long shirt and cute vest! Saiorse - Wow, thank you for being brave enough to admit you are one of the people that shows off without the tunic!
It is not necessarily the panty lines that offends people though Some things are just not meant to be seen by everyone. But thank you for stepping up and admitting you proudly wear your leggings without the long shirt. I see this look everyday, so I know there are people out there doing it. I hate to admit that I am old enough to have worn leggings, in the 's in high school.
Back then, we never thought about pantylines, and I have to admit that I showed more than my share, in grey, and white leggings back then!! With the fashion trends coming back to tight, unforgiving leggings, showing every little 'evil' bit of the chocolate that we adore, why hide all of the soft, cuddly parts, under tunics?
I turned 40 last March and I have been struggling with how to dress. I was especially leery of leggings at my age and your article has made me so much more comfortable to wear them.
I guess I just felt like I was supposed to dress like my mom did when she was 40 but after reading your posts I realize I can still dress fashionably without dressing too young for my age. They were like leggings but not the skinnies type. They did form fit to the leg but rather had a smooth vertical look and did not hug the knee.
I would kill for a pair now. I had a great pair of black one when micro fiber first came out. Alas, they had a tear in them from being worn out and I have never been able to find another pair. Does anyone know if they still exist? Soft Surroundings have some! Hopefully will see more soon, since I think they work great with boots! Thanks for great advice on leggings for the over 40ss etc. Was going to wear a jersey red dress — but thought this would be too dressed-up. A perfectly comfortable outfit.
Thanks for providing the lowdown, and such great visuals of examples. Sounds like the perfect outfit for the occasion Carmen. Great to read that this article inspired you!
You can wear your leggings with summery jersey dresses. This is especially nice when you select a great print. Another option is to choose a cotton short dress in a light color, like this breezy white dress https: You can also consider getting some white leggings and combine with a long cotton blouse or short dress as seen here https: I think ballet flats can work really well with leggings as can some funky sandals.
You can definitely consider navy which is a bit softer than black and can look really great with lots of colors. Thank you for the wonderful suggestions!
I thought it was a fashion faux pas to wear the black leggings with the lighter short dresses! I like the outfits in your pics ……again, many many thanks!! I love the leggings and short dress look for both winter and summer. Is a dress over leggings still in vogue in your summer this year? Just found your blog via Pinterest — hooray!
A reasonable voice in a sea of extremes! I love leggings, and wear them all year, usually with a fingertip-length tunic. Sewing is a passion, and I use a lot of chiffon and velvets in my tops. Here in Texas, a tunic, leggings, and cowboy boots are typical.
Again, thank you for the blog! Great to see you found your way to this website. Lots of articles to explore!
There is one on Texas as well where I was indeed wearing leggings! Leggings look utterly ridiculous on anyone over When worn right, they can look really good. My long time girl friend who was a buyer for Marshall Fields just got me onto leggings. I am in Florida and worn with a lovely summery top, look fantastic. My mother is 83, and looks wonderful in loose fitting leggings. In paisley and other very flattering prints, they look great.
Which is the comfort standard I always strive for. I like either way short or longer tops. Usually that would be a coat. But wear mine with moto jacket, fake fury vest and V-neck sweater as well like here… http: I have black leggings but when I wear them they are somewhat wrinkley looking or slightly bagging when getting up from sitting around knee area.
Totally agree with you Sylvia. Was just thinking the same thing. I keep coming back to this post because leggings can be so stylish and material mix can make a difference too. So love your advice here! Totally love my Adidas animal print grey leggings and have been wering them for 2 years now. Great for sightseeing in NYC see current post or everyday life. I just dont feel that comfortable wearing them the Chanel-style. Love the pics here Silvia though. But not for me. Makes me feel hidden.
Have a nice day! I have them in very many colors and designs … even in pastels yes ;-. I though do not like animal prints, except zebra, so this is not an issue for me. I had already started wearing skinny jeans and pants as soon as they made their comeback by , mostly with short dresses. When it comes to shoes, to my opinion, everything goes but low sneakers which make me look as heading straight to the gym, though high sneakers are ok.
Age is not a factor to affect your looks, if you carry off what you wear with confidence. Belief in yourself is the key to fashion in the slightly higher age bracket. I am in a wheelchair and age My legs are ugly and I have poor circulation so I have to wear support socks or hose.
So I always wear pants. My daughter is getting married in the fall and I have a off white vintage type tunic with a small gold embellishment between the breast she picked it out and plum color leggings. Should I keep the flats or try to find something in the leggings color to match. Any other suggestions would help.
Thank you so much. Is it OK to belt a long tunic or dress? I love the cream leggings and outfits. Oh I so love that cream, sleeveless boat neck tunic with the asymmetric pleated hem. Perhaps a legging might work better than thick tights with that cream dress of mine. But I have no money left. Yes, I love to wear leggings. I think this isy third time around. I wear them for casual and dressy. I also wear leggings over tights and under long johns in the winter. As well as having a successful career as an IT Architect.
I wear leggings with my Vans tees and trainers all the time. If you are still toned and have the figure to get away with it then why not? I wear leggings with a sweater all the time, and sometimes with t shirts. Sometimes it covers, sometimes not. Totally agree Karen, if you are fit and look good why not indeed.
However I think the article is talking generally, Id bet the vast majority of over 40s 50s are not snowboarders or indeed i assume would look good in leggings and regular size tees. I admire your fitness, I was a PT for over 20 years until fibromyalgia took a hold and now most days I can barely walk around the house, I still want to look good though lol but now comfort is a very close second.
This article was written to give women ideas to hide their big bellies, if they have one. This article is very helpful to women like me. Do you have any advice about wearing a Tulle midi skirt …I am 67 size 12 waist and would like to wear a black tulle skirt to a wedding….. The wedding is in Paris and is a black themed wedding. This is my humble opinion. Leggings are too rugged for a tulle skirt, especially to a formal wedding.
Secondly, if the wedding is in Paris, you need to be extremely confident about what you choose to wear. Parisian women have an effortless and elegant style. I say go for simplicity and put your effort toward a really good, elegant pair of shoes that will accentuate the skirt. I am short, and have short legs, so tunic tops make me look stubby. A good length is to shorten to the tips of your fingers with your arm extended at your side.
Thank you for your tip, I am built like you lol and have terrible trouble buying clothes that fit and suit, I am 51 and 5ft and believe me every single lb shows up and is hard to loose. I am going to invest in a sewing machine and get snipping x. All your advice seems to be for women who are short with apple or pear shapes.
I suppose your advice would be to do the opposite to what you advise. I love your advice though. I give advice to women of all shapes. There is a special article for tall women too at https: Help this is a great article. I would like to wear them with shorter knit dresses, but my slips are too long. Any suggestions for preventing knit dresses from clinging to knits. Should I just wear tights and buy some shorter slips if I can find them. Why do you need a slip?
Sometimes cling can be reduced by rubbing a fabric softener sheet onto the fabrics. Just use a good pair of sissors and cut the slip to the desired length. A slip is just an extra layer and it should not bring any attention to itself. In cold climates, a snug undergarment is good for thermal layering.
Target has a long camisole the length of a slip that is available in the maternity department. This may be a solution for you. I like to wear leggings ,so im little short and how can I wearing shoes to ,if the leggings ower the ankle.?. High heels is good or not.. I like to know from you.. Yes heels can work in a similar way as they are worn with skinnies. For lots more tips on what shoes to wear with what pants, see this article https: Okay, you advised that people with big calves not wear form fitting leggings.
What should we wear? You cannot, and should not exclude us. What about the rest of us? There are so many other options to wear. You could still wear skinny style pants but choose styles that skim the legs, not hug them. You may like to have a look at the body type guides in this section where I have written many articles for all kinds of body types. I love your blog! Thank you for the tips with leggings.
