They are not pants. Do not substitute them for proper pants.

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.

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.

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.

I don't know why I'm just now discovering leggings, but I am and I. AM. IN. LOVE.

I think the main rule or guideline for leggings is that if you want to wear them, you should really lover your legs, because, let's face it, that's what leggings are showcasing, especially considering you'll be wearing such a baggy shirt on top.

I have very long, very skinny legs. Skinny jeans are still baggy one me. I unfortunately have a very short waist though & a post-baby baby belly that was there even BEFORE I had babies, lol. But carrying around 14.5lb of twins has made it a mushy mess. Leggings help me draw attention to the parts of myself that I like and disguise the parts that I don't like.

I hope this trend never ends... it's so easy & so comfy! Add to it the popularity of messy buns on top of your head and I have never done so little to look so fashionable.

(P.S. I'm 32 and am a size 9/10 typically -- like I said, classic apple body shape)

I'm apparently one of those who should NOT wear leggings (almost 40 & plus size) but I do. Mostly as an extra layer under dresses that on my tall frame are a little shorter than I feel comfortable with. I generally like my dresses to fully cover my knees so if they're even skimming my knee I get out the leggings.
The rule about not wearing something the second time around has more to do with wearing it the exact same way. For example, I wore a LOT of neon the first time it came around. Like head to toe neon. I'm seeing the trend return & I can tell you that I will NOT be wearing it head to toe again. Maybe a scarf or necklace or one item of clothing in neon (in a cut & style that flatter my figure) but never again head to toe.
IMO (& I love clothing & fashion) you can wear just about anything. It's all about how you wear it. I thought I couldn't wear skinny jeans for a long time & then I broke down & bought a pair & realized they look great with oversized tops. I can't wear them with a short top & ballet flats but with a slightly slouchy top & boots they look great.

With the right dress, leggings can look very cute on anyone of any size. I think maybe what a lot of posters are reacting to are people who wear leggings and show parts of their legs that maybe they don't need to.

My rule is that the dress must cover at least as much as my shorts would. (I like mid-length shorts - they cover the icky parts of my legs and leave the nice parts out.) Done that way, I think it's totally age appropriate. It's similar to wearing colored tights, but warmer, and I can wear my flats. Also, those dresses can take me from early fall through winter (at least here in Gulf Coast Louisiana) simply by the choice of no under leg garments, tights, leggings, or leggings and boots.

I'm also short waisted but when I wear tights or leggings and a nice dress, somehow I don't look quite so short waisted.

As you've had plenty of fashion advice, let me give you a little laundry advice: follow the label, and air dry your leggings. I am a lover of leggings--I basically dress like an off-duty ballerina, all the time--and it only took me one pair of leggings with destroyed elastic to realize that air drying was the way to go.

I'll confess: I wear my leggings as pants. All the time. No shame. (I am under 25 and am fairly fit)

I do make sure that my top is covering the majority of my butt and I always make sure you cannot see my underwear (another confession: I've gone without underwear before while wearing leggings).

I love leggings. My rule is buy your correct size. Just because you think your a size small doesn't mean you are a size small.

We have a plethora of girls at school who are wearing them "as pants" -- and not with long tunic-type tops or short dresses.

My dd is 13 and guilty of wearing leggings as pants to school as are most of the girls in her class. She will not wear jeans. But her leggings are more like yoga pants but skin tight ones not the ones you buy in the sock/stocking section of a store. They are bought in the clothes section of kids stores but still called leggings.

Wears them with normal t shirts and sweaters.
