Ok Dis' Fashionistas - Leggings?
 
I bought 2 pair of leggings today.

One pair is a blue denim color.

One pair is a coral color.

Please, can someone explain the "do's and don'ts" for leggings?

I know the main rule is make sure your shirt/dress covers your bum.

Any other advice you can give me to make these look as good as I can?

Be a size 6 or under and younger than 25...that's my do's and don'ts for leggings. Other than that I have no other pointers since I don't meet either of those qualifications. :lmao:

I am a size 8 and in my mid-30's. So I am already breaking 2 of your rules, LOL.

They need to be worn with a shirtmlng enough to cover your rear end, like a tunic or something

I only wear mine under dresses that are a little too short.

leggings are not underwear and should not be substituted for such.

I love to wear leggings under a long sweater & my with my high boots. Cute & comfy!!!

Buy good quality (not thin fabric that will get baggy at the knees or sheer at the butt) leggings. Nothing shiny or spandex.

Wear long tops/tunics/dresses that fully cover the crotchular area and rump, at minimum. Mid-thigh is better.

nor are they pants.

That said, I'm well over 25 (though I do hover around a size 6) I wear leggings all the time. So do most of my friends. I primarily use them under those cute dresses that are just a little too short to be appropriate for a "woman my age."

In the winter I wear them with boots. In the summer, ballet flats.

Leggings are not pants, cover your bottom. That's my only rule.

No skin-colored leggings! You'd think you wouldn't have to tell people that but in the last month I have seen this rule broken twice--once by a white girl wearing light peach leggings and another chocolate brown girl wearing chocolate brown leggings. Both times I did a double take because they looked like they weren't wearing any pants at all!

Oh dear! I amend my statement - there are two rules!
