I love my leggings and you have it right on! I hope she takes your advice. For this reason, leggings are bound to go out of style soon for the rest of us.
The fashion police needs to be ever present on this matter! What I've seen is downright undignified and uncivilized! Yes, I hope with this advice we can keep the leggings trend going. They are just so comfortable and affordable. I have seen some really scary leggings fashions out there. I suppose some people are not taking my advice. Thanks for reading and voting my hub up! Great hub Jeannie and here's hoping it will give longer life to our wonderful and 'forgiving' leggings.
I do agree with everything you have said about wearing leggings wrongly - omg the sights you see out on the street is vomit inducing!!! The sad part about it, is that I'm sure these women think they look good - but the opposite is true!!
Well, I am glad we agree on this. I was sure someone was going to insist wearing leggings without a tunic or dress is OK, but everyone is on the same page that comments. It is interesting that I still see folks doing this though. Maybe they are not reading this hub. I love leggings too, I wear them with long shirts, tunics or short dresses. Not that I wore leggings in the 80s I'm just a baby in that decade , but I totally agree with you jeannie, I also don't like the fashion faux pas that comes with leggings - it is not nice to look at from all angles!
I am glad you read this hub then. I certainly hope you've at least been wearing the leggings as pants. I hope you did not mistaken them for a hat! I am embarrassed to say that I have been wearing leggings all wrong. In fact, I'm pretty sure I was the cause of it's disappearance in the early 90s Thank you for helping me put the right leg ging forward in this regard.
Thanks for reading and for sharing some leggings memories. I also had leggings back in the day and I still have a couple of pairs. I can even fit into to them; they just don't look exactly the same on me now.
I would say they are not quite a flattering as they once were. Just recently got back into leggings. The last time I wore them was, well, when you said they were popular too scared to say the year. And the only reason I've put them on was because I got myself couple of dresses which tend to "travel up my legs" and look a bit I love your hub, made me travel back in time and gave me more courage to jump into my leggings.
Yes, I loved the way you described stretchy leggings as forgiving! Thanks for reading and for the comment. I really like leggings since they are very forgiving pants. You can gain or lose a few pounds, but they will just stretch along with you. Leggings can definitely be hard to grasp, but I think when they're worn properly they're a great option. Thanks for the Hub! Yes, short shirts and leggings are not a good look.
Most people agree with me on this subject, yet when I walked through the mall yesterday, I saw so many people with that look. I guess I just have to try to reach one person at a time.
Thanks for reading and for the comment! I never do that before with the short shirts and leggings together as I find it an uneasy and impolite way of match I am shocked at how many people I see in public wearing short shirts and leggings together.
It is usually not a pretty sight. You are right - leggings are intended for short dresses and sweater dresses. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment. Thanks for the hub! I adore leggings, especially now that I'm pregnant again, but they are a way to make short dresses and sweater dresses work. I don't think I could even wear a short shirt and leggings around the house! Yes, there are some things best left to the imagination. Thanks for the votes and the comment!
I love my leggings and you have it right on! Leggings ARE for under tunics and long shirts! Thanks for a good hub filled with good advice! Voted up and useful! Some of their shoes are cute though. Yes, perhaps a famous actress then. You are allowed to be curvy if you are an actress. Not likely to become a super model. The poor girl is too endowed and curvy. They are all stick thin and boy straight.
Maybe a famous actress. That is a really good point. I am sure at that height it is tough finding something long enough for her. Maybe she will become a super model! But for now, yes, leggings are a must. My daughter bought a dress shirt that was so short I wouldn't let her wear it without leggings. She is 5'10", just 14 and has a hard time finding dresses long enough.
She now has a colorful variety of leggings. She is allowed to wear the dress shirt. Thank you for your comment and thanks for using the word "tush. That is way nicer! Since then my once firm and toned body has gotten a little mushy It allows me to keep a feminine look while still covering up.
They are a true asset in the closet if worn right! This hub has turned out to be much more popular than I anticipated. A lot of women have strong opinions about leggings. I do know what you mean about jeggings vs. When I went to put the Amazon ads up, there was a pair of skinny jeans being advertised as jeggings. I changed the keywords a bit and fixed it. I can't confuse readers like that! I am trying to help the leggings wearers of the world, not confuse them.
Thanks for the vote up! So many people need to read this hub! I will say though that a lot of companies are calling things jeggings that really are skinny jeans. I have a pair from Levi that have denim and are thick, even hang like jeans but Levi says they are jeggings I suppose when it's put like that, maybe some gals should stay away.
But once again, if they bought the correct size, I am optimistic they could make it work. But then again, maybe I am not witnessing what you are seeing. Leggings are so cute, but there is so much leggings abuse!
Thanks for reading and for your comment. A timely hub, Jeannie Sadly they do not realise this and think that a tunic makes it all right. To them I would say You have been warned! Thank you both for your comments. Leggings and jeggings have become so popular. They really do look flattering when worn the right way. Hi Jeannie, Leggings are so popular here in the UK, everybody is wearing them!
Like Cloverleaf I have never worn them out before, because I too felt self conscious! There is no need to feel self-conscious. Now you can go out there in public and wear leggings wherever you go. Well, maybe not everywhere, but you get the idea. Thanks for the comment and the votes! Great fashion advice, Jeannie! I've always stuck to only wearing leggings around the house, mostly just because they are comfy.
I think I've always been afraid of wearing them outdoors because I feel self-conscious!!! But now I know how to wear them properly, so thank you! Thank you both for the comments and the votes. And yes, there are girls who wear tights as if they are leggings. Since the feet are not cut out, they are not fooling anyone. Maybe more people commit fashion crimes in Baltimore than other cities.
