I feel like leggings are such a tricky thing to style – you have to be perfectly in the middle of the “leggings as pants” to “leggings are opaque footless tights” spectrum.

Leggings, particularly not cotton ones, but more over ones that are made of different materials and patterns (some examples here http://store.americanapparel.net/8328aw.html?cid=905, http://store.americanapparel.net/rsarn300.html?cid=905, http://store.americanapparel.net/rnt43.html?cid=905) look [to me] odd as pants (as if you forgot something), but even so, still awkward under dresses and skirts.

To cut to the chase, how do you wear these types of leggings, if at all, and if not, how would you style them/wear them?

Agreed with chellelinyoung she said ti the best and I quote her:

“long top and hidden butt is the number one rule on wearing leggings”

Leggings are NOT pants….. otherwise it looks tacky and cheap…. I do not want to see your lady parts, thanks.. thats my opinion

I wear them under short dresses or skirts and if I’m wear a short top I put a long cardigan over it just to ensure my bum is covered. Also it depends on the type of leggings really if its real thick ones like the ones Zara sell then I can get away with it on its own but if its cheap thin ones then they definitely go under something

I don’t wear leggings, I think footless leggings and tights are incredibly ugly. But some people make them work, but I personally don’t wear them.
Tights, however, I wear all the time. I wear them under long shirts, under tunics, with oversized sweaters, and high waist skirts.

I love, love leggings, but often find that solid colors (particularly gray) look odd unless you’re fully covered up (long cardigan, tunic, etc.) but all my patterned ones (particularly these ) look great with a simple white top, the pattern usually takes the notice off your butt, making them look more like pants.

I pretty much own two pair of leggings because I don’t like them too well. They’re comfy… But you’re right about tricky styling. They are not effective pant replacements, imo! (Leggings. Are. Not. Pants.) I wear them with super long, over sized tees or sweaters with flats or boots. Sometimes a pump. When worn this way, I start to like them more. Especially if I want to look cute and be comfy for long school days!
