I’m not a huge fan of leggings.  I will wear them with dresses instead of tights or hose but that’s all.  I think too many people wear them instead of pants and all you see if butts and camel toe.

I only have 1 pair which I only ever wear with a long top and not very often. Except I love them for plane rides! I usually just wear pj pants at home for lounging and jeans when I’m out.

I find skinny jeans uncomfortable, and wide leg jeans don’t go with as much, so I’m usually in a dress and tights. I like the idea of leggings but can never find anything to wear them with! Most of my dresses are too long to wear with leggings, and then what shoes do I wear given that 90% of the time it’s cold enough to need socks on? I usually have stretch jersey trousers and a jumper on at home instead. 

Leggings are fine as casual wear with a shorter dress or tunic, and I don’t care what anyone says, they’re not trousers, I can see what pattern your underwear is when they stretch over your backside!

merighthere :  

Considering I am currently obese, leggings are not something I ever wear cause I would be too self conscious. I do wear yoga pants sometimes and they are awesome but still a bit self conscious.

Im cool when women wear leggins with longer tops, looks very nice, they are however NOT pants in my opinion, so when I see women in leggings that are extremelly skin tight and/or semi see though that is a big Nope from me. Especially if I see it in an office/formal setting it makes me cringe.

My DH eorks in an account receivable department andnthey are fairly casual, so a lot of the younger women wear leggings and he has said that it doesnt look professional, the men are in dress pants and long sleves dress shirts.. and the women seem to think that putting on leggings and a somewhat business casual top is ok.
