I never thought about them as inappropriate until I saw people online say you should never wear them to the office. What if they’re the really thick leggings that look like work pants paired with long sweaters/shirts/cardigans? Something similar to this look? I’ve worn them for years and no one’s ever said anything. The places I work are business casual, not strict with dress code. I see people wear sleeveless tops during summer and open-toed shoes or dressier sandals.
Skinny fitted pants, long sweater?

As long as you are not showing your thong off or see through, its not an issue in my opinion. So wearing a long shirt over it to cover up your behind or even longer… looks fine.

As long as no one can tell they’re leggings and not pants, I don’t need see how’s its a problem.

I think you’re fine if you stick with outfits like what you shared.
I had a pair of leggings that looked exactly like colored jeans and wore them quite often to work in a variety of ways. Since they looked like jeans (obviously thicker and didn’t show my underwear or see through) I even wore them with normal blouses that didn’t always cover my butt. They were so freaking comfy.
For women, I think in the fall/winter it is completely understandable in most companies (unless it is like a super strict business professional dress code) to wear leggings with longer shirts/boots because its trendy. I think its still appropriate.

It is frowned upon in my business casual office, but usually management doesn’t say anything unless they are thin or clearly designed more as workout gear, and/or your top does not appropriately cover things that ought to be covered and outlines of things are showing.

Completely depends on where you work. Where I work it’s a definite no unless wearing a top that is almost down to my knees.

It is a strict no in my line of work. I am suposed to wear stockings or tights with dresses though, so sometimes if I wear a dress in the cold weather, I will wear leggings instead of tights, but that’s as far as that goes.

It really depends on the workplace and the outfit. For me, it’s fine.

*looks down at my leggings*
I work in engineering and they say busines casual, and most men are in shirt and khakis. Some jeans too. I usually wear jeans on a daily basis, or something like those outfits you posted, which is fine imo.

I wear leggings to work that are the thinner leggings not the thick kind. I definitely think it depends on your office environment. Mine is very casual although the dress code is business casual. I also don’t interact with clients very much and if I know a client will be in the office I would wear something else.

I’m wearing a pair of “leggings” right now at work. I don’t really think of them as leggings but they are black stretchy pants that are tight on the ankle. They are thick material though, and they have a sewn crease down the front, so they look more like work pants even though they are stretchy. They’re also not super tight. I wear them with flats and normal shirts. I also wear dress pant yoga pants from Betabrand, that are basically thick stretchy yoga pants with fake buttons and pockets that look like dress pants. I like to be comfortable.

As long as your butt is covered and they’re not see through, go for it.

Im a strict believer that legging are not appropriate in the work place.

I am wearing some today…they’re comfortable, not see through and I have a sweater (although very fitted) that comes to my hips. If I had a business meeting, I would not but I see nothing wrong with this (and yes, I work in a super conservative environment).
