What is the main purpose for leggings?

What is the main purpose for leggings? Are they actually warm since some you can see skin really easy? what do you normally wear with them? do you normally wear shorts under them to make your self feel more secure?

  • Well..black is more slimming and most leggings are black.

    They are much thicker than tights and yes they are warmer. They're also really comfy!

    And, doing things like crossing your legs you don't need to worry about, sitting on the floor, etc. Tights are see-through and you can see out pants, whereas leggings we can almost pretend they're trousers! In the winter you can put layers under (e.g. tights under and leggings on top) and be really really warm, and in summer, just wear them on their own.

    I normally put leggings on with a long top or with a skirt/hot pants depending what I'm doing that day. :)

  • I don't really get the purpose of leggings. To me they seem like the outfit is incomplete. I don't find them comfortable and they make me more self-conscious than ever. However, I'll gladly wear a dress with sweater tights during the cold months. :) The tights may not be comfortable but the dress sure is!

  • I personally don't like my legs, so I wear leggings to cover them up. I usually wear them underneath a skirt or even shorts or a dress.

  • The leggings I wear aren't see through.

    I usually wear skirts, dresses, and long shirts with them.. with a belt at the waist -that's always a great combo. They are pretty warm actually.

    • thank you, everything is just so different with mens and womens clothing

    • Yea it really is, and no problem.

  • I wear them at home or underneath my jeans since it's cold out. The ones with the stirrups are nice. I wore a pair out once while grocery shopping and that was really uncomfortable..a lot of unwanted attention.

  • Leggings are suppose to fit a little bit tighter and they tend to show off the butt and legs if you have good ones. You can wear anything with them, although a longer shirt the better, just to at least go up to your butt. It more or less looks like you are going without pants. From my experience they really aren't that warm. I throw my leggings on with a tunic type top and some cute boots.

    • thanks I was just wondering, cause I normally don't see them much in the summer.

  • They are super comfy..i have jean leggins. Women usually wear really tight skinny jeans to look good as you have noticed..jean leggins look like skinny jeans but are comfy as pjs <33

  • Leggings are really comfortable and show off your figure! No, you don't wear shorts under then and they aren't warm... Well, in the summer you would buy the ones the breath and in the winter there are thick ones so you can be warm. They are more for fashion and making you feel pretty

  • they are comfy, warm, different than jeans, and more slimming. and I always wear a black leotard (im a dancer) under mine because I have a really bad fear that the leggings will end up being too sheer...

  • 1) So you can wear a tunic but not worry about your hooha hanging out or looking too revealing

    2) Good for working out

    3) Good for when it's cold if you want to wear a short skirt, this look is very teenager ish IMO but for them it's good, and it can make a really short skirt look more modest

    4) Some girls wear them as pants because they are tight and seen as more sexy. Some people hate them as pants. With certain things they look odd as pants but they can be pulled off

    5) I actually have seen people wear them as pants when it is warmer out, as they are not as warm or heavy as jeans.

    6) Good for around the house or just to run to the drugstore or something.

    No I don't wear shorts under them, they are too tight for that! You justh ave to make sure the ones you buy aren't transparent.

  • GOOD QUALITY leggings are really warm yet fashionable! Leggings are like a cross between tights and pants. If you want to wear a comfy sweater dress, but you don't want to freeze in tights, you can put on some leggins that are still warm yet don't take away from the look. I even just wear leggings around the house. They are so comfy! You're not always going to be able to see skin.I don't wear shorts under them, just my undies. If you can see skin, then the material is probably just very cheap.

  • they're a fashion accessory. Girls (should) use them to add a little something to an outfit. Usually worn with a dress/skirt or shorts. There are those unfortunate girls who wear them as pants and it looks really tacky.
