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.

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

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

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.

You must also have unusually long legs and being over 6 feet tall doesn't hurt.

I've heard that the rule for fashion is that if you were around for the trend the first time, then you're too old for it the second time it comes around. That makes me definitely too old for leggings.

I'm breaking your rules too, I'm 42, size 8 and I wear leggings.

Along with covering your rear end with a tunic, make sure that they you raise your arms, no one sees more than you intended. I am tired of seeing women in leggings (often sheer) raise their arms/sit in a chair and I get a big old look at black thongs worn underneath. If I'm seeing a black thong disappear up your backside, I am seeing your backside.
ewwwwwwwwwwww

Well, then I'd have to walk around naked because all fashion has already been done in my lifetime. LOL

OP wear your leggings but please wear a shirt/tunic/dress that's long enough to cover your butt with your arms in the air. lol That's really my only rule.
