How do you feel about the “leggings as pants” style?
Personally, I think it’s cute if the top ends mid-thigh. Tunic style is always really cute too.

I think they’re fine, as long as the shirt/tunic isn’t too long or too short. Anything near knee-length and you should just wear tights, anything too short and you should definitely wear some real pants haha

No…nonono.

If leggings were ment to be worn as pants, they would be called…well, pants.

if leggings weren’t meant to be worn as pants.. how else would you wear them? they look awful as a tights substitute, so I guess the answer is they should never be worn?

But, leggings as pants, what does that mean actually?
The tunic must be as long as a mini dress? Then it’s ok? But if it shows the butt, then it’s not ok?

as long as the bum is covered at least 3/4 of the way. I find it gross when it somehow wedges into their butt crack without them noticing or bother to pick it out and their shirt isn’t even covering the whole situation (it’s way to common where I live)

No leggings as pants! Whatever top/dress you are wearing should cover your entire behind!

3 years ago I wore them an pants all the time. They are comfy and don’t have the annoying butttons and weird pockets like pants do. Now I see where I was wrong. But even now I am slowly getting back into the mindset that they can sometimes work as pants. As long as no panty lines and are completely opaque they are okay with me.

top should sit a little past your hips imo bc it looks weird. here girls wear short tops with leggings and you can see their thongs… :X
i usually pair mine with tunics/shirtdresses (see my posts)

Leggings with a tunic length top is great, I’m not fond of leggings when you can see the person’s behind when they are standing. I’m not sure why so many people seem against wearing leggings with longer items, sometimes leggings can be used in the place of tights IMHO, it depends on the outfit and the leggings.

I think it’s OK as long as
a.) it’s not see-thru leggings (camel toe is just awful)
b.) your top decently covers your butt

They’re really comfortable. They’re cute to wear under tunics or babydoll dresses. :) But I sometimes prefer jeans instead. But they’re cute for the winter!

Generally, I dislike it quite a bit, but there could be some exceptions. As most people are saying, it’s definitely better if the top is more tunic-y and covers your butt. I personally find this style isn’t very flattering on a lot of people though. Just wear some pants!

I agree with rewong: Make sure your butt and crotch are covered and the fabric’s not see-through, and you’re golden. There are definitely tunic tops that work perfectly with leggings. But don’t just throw on any old top . . . especially if you’re someone with a long torso, like me, a t-shirt of regular length is not long enough.

I disagree with newamericanclassic about leggings not looking good in place of tights. I also love leggings for short skirts and dresses that feel indecent with bare legs, and I often wear leggings in place of tights in winter since they’re warmer and with boots you can’t see they’re footless. I think leggings are more like tights than they are like pants.

It’s one of my most loved trend esp for spring when its a bit warm for jeans and a bit cool to go bare legged.

My tip would be to make sure that the top is long enough to cover yout bottom.
It’s also one of those looks that can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.
