Views on leggings/jeggings - November 1st 2009, 10:55 AM

So i was just wondering what people thought of the whole wearing leggings rather than trousers things pro? anti? don't really care??

Personally i really like leggings i wear them all the time rather than tights as i find they don't itch and are far better for the sort of person i am.

I also do wear them with long t-shirts and stuff but i tend to only do this if i'm in all day

Was wondering on other peoples views

Personally I think they're silly (no offence love ) The nineties are over and whenever I see people wearing them the first thought that springs to mind is 'where's your skirt?¿'

I only wear leggings with dresses, skirts or long tops that go passed my bum.
I think it looks silly when people wear leggings with short t-shirts. I also think jeggings are so stupid, what was wrong with jeans.
I think the worst thing about people wearing leggings as trousers is when they have a wedgie or camel toe and they don't notice and you can't tell them. It is just embarrassing and gross.

I love my leggings when I'm going out at night. It always gets too hot when you're out in a club or what not and you're wearing jeans so I definitely think leggings, and jeggings for that matter are the way forward. I have worn a pair of jeggings during the day before but the pair that I've got actually look more like jeans than anything else.

They're fine if they're worn with a long top or dress. It irritates me when people wear them with short t-shirts!

You should never ever ever wear leggings with something that doesn't cover your ass. Especially if the leggings sag.. *barf*.
I'm more of a footless tights gal, leggings are still too warm, and I like the lacy bits around my ankles

I think leggings are awesome.. I wear them with really short tops, like tops that just fall past my bum or something... I think they're really comfortable and prolly the best piece of clothing that was ever created. Best thing is, now, they come in various colours and patterns!

I like leggings, but I wear them under jeans, not by themselves. I get so cold, that the leggings help, but I would never wear them alone, that's just mortifying. My sister, however, wears them with very short skirts and baby tees, and it looks so horrible.

I'm nowhere near girly so I prefer jeans and I really don't like them they look like just very thick tights and when it's worn with a short tee...it just doesn't look right.

I love leggings but will only wear them with a long top, dress, or skirt. It has to cover your bum at least.

I don't know what "jeggings" are... but in my mind, leggings were meant to be worn with huge sweatshirts or cut off t's over body-suits and legwarmers. I swear, the 80's are coming back!

Personally, I don't wear them. Did when I was like 4, but that was back in like 92'. Have they brought back the stirrup leggings also? haha

leggings are fine as long as they're worn with long tops or dresses.. but when people wear leggings with short tops it just looks really stupid.. like they forgot their skirt, lol.

as for jeggings.. noooooo!. i really hate them. and tbh i think you can only really pull them off if you have an amazing figure! [grrr.!!] but really, they look kinda stupid.. why not just wear proper jeans?


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

These are jeggings, they are leggings that look like denim and have the stitching of pockets and jeans printed on them so the look like jeans. I think they are terrible.


Stirrup leggings are back actually
I have just bought a pair because I like longer leggings but I hate it when the legs rise up and you have to pull them down and for that stirrup leggings are great. They are also great when wearing boots because they stay in place and stops them going baggy at the knee.

I used to wear leggings with just t shirts when I was younger in the early 90's and the leggings where always like mad flower patterns. I used to love them but I would never wear them now. I only wear plain black or white leggings or if I am feeling brave I may wear coloured ones but that is only if I am wearing a rather plain dress.
And like I said above whatever I wear with them they HAVE TO cover my bum

I used to wear leggings in the 90's too, Rachel! They always had wacky designs on them too, i remember one pair being white with black circles everywhere! ew lol

As for now, i don't really have a nice figure to pull them off so i have only worn them about once or twice in my teens, and that was with a dress that was just above my knees. I don't mind leggings on other people as long as they wear it with a long top, or with a skirt or dress. Oh and as for Jeggings; i would wear them if i could pull them off so i'm a bit miffed at this trend - go away! stop making me jealous

I didn't know what jeggings were either, but those pictures you posted reminds me of people with their clothes painted on. I don't like leggings. I find them uncomfortable. I also find it looks terrible when people wear leggings with something that doesn't cover their butt. I find naked bums very ugly so I certainly don't want to see a skin tight outline. It's okay if it's with a dress(with long t-shirts I still think it looks bad... it looks like you have very short legs and a very long torso. Though it does depend on the shirt)

I too agree with the idea that people should wear long tops with leggings. I see too many people walking around with short t-shirts and it really doesn't look that flattering.
I have a pair of jeggings, but I have to wear them with the right sort of thing otherwise they make me look huge.

I love leggings. I work in a school so they're really comfortable to wear all day and not be too expensive to replace if they get spoiled.
Jeggings, I'm not so sure. I personally don't like them. More on me than anything, but yeah.

I don't really wear leggings. However, I hate it when people wear them as pants or with a regular top. If you have on a long top that covers your butt, go for it. Otherwise, put on some jeans folks.

At my school, leggings do not constitute as pants. If you have them underneath a dress or skirt then the dress or skirt has to be the appropriate length, which I find stupid. Leggings might not be pants, but your legs are covered so I feel that you should be able to wear shorter garments with them. However, that is another argument.

It seems like so many girls at my school are wearing leggings lately, but I really don't like the trend. I'm always more of a pants person myself, and I always think that leggings look better when worn under a dress or a skirt. They are not pants, but it seems like everyone is treating them as such.

Ohhh my gosh

I LOVEEEEE leggings and tights <333

I normally wear a dress with tights to school... or leggings.
I will never wear just a long shirt though- that's too risky for me.


One girl at my school wears reallllly tight leggings and skin tight belly tank-tops. GROSS. Good things she has a good body.

I don't care for them at all, I find they can be very girly sometimes, I actually probably would wear them if I tried them but I just choose not to go that route I suppose.

Definitely not anti leggings though, I think they really look good on most girls who wear them, I just don't think they're right for me.
I find what people match them with can look really unique and pretty, something different to look at, its individuality.

I had to google what jeggings were. So it's safe to say I don't own any jeggings. As for leggings, I own two pairs and as long as another item of clothing covers the bum I haven't got an issue with them. I often wear them with skirts or dresses or shorts.

I wear leggings instead of tights as they're more comfy, don't ladder and keep you warmer. Although I don't wear them very often since I'm happy in my jeans.

I love leggings! They are so absolutly comfortable, and really quite in right now too, if thats not obvious, but ONLY when worn with long tops or dresses.

I used to wear them as regular pants, but now I wear them only with skirts, dresses and long shirts. And occasionally sweatshirts. I have way too many leggings. I usually wear them with short skirts so i can wear the short skirt without having to worry about someone seeing my underwear. (Not to mention the school dress code).
