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.

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.

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!
