I don't know what it is but me personally I feel that tights and leggings for girls should be worn under clothing like they were intended. Unless they are yoga or exercise pants it just looks weird to see them used as just pants. I've worked in clothing sales for many years and I see this in my store and out of my store a lot for the past couple of years. This is my personal view and I would like to get the opinion of the great GAG people. What do ya'll think?
I agree if you look good you can wear anything. But I just think certain clothes are meant to be worn a certain way.
Honestly I think I look really good in my yoga pants and tights! I mean I'm not blind, I can see what I look like in a mirror and when I wear a bad outfit, I can see it's bad. But I can also recognize when I look good and in my yoga pants I truly believe I do. It highlights my body type and makes me look like I actually have a butt ^_^ Girls who wear tights or leggings can absolutely look horrible too. If they don't style it properly or don't have the body shape for it. But in some cases I believe it can look very flattering too. However I must add though, I'll never wear tights or any type of tight pants for that matter if my top does not cover at least 3/4 of my butt at the very least. I can understand where you're coming from if you are talking about girls who pair tights with tops that are low cut. Then it looks really odd imo. The top you wear should cover your pants somewhat if you are going to wear it casually.
Personally, I wear leggings as pants. They are so extremely comfortable and I honestly don't care what anyone else thinks. I like them so I will continue to wear them. To me, it's no different than wearing yoga pants (I wear both).
I agree with you. They should only be worn with shorts, skirts, or dresses. It isn't very flattering when they are worn as pants. For example, I was picking up my younger sister from school, and I saw this lady wearing only tights as pants. You could see her white panties right through her black tights. I just wondered why she hadn't checked the mirror before she left the house...
They should be worn under dresses or jeans/clothing. That's the way it was as I was growing up from childhood to teens. Now I see girls in tiny shirts and leggings. It looks so unclassy and horrible - makes me cringe. I'd feel really uncomfortable if I wore them with the appropriate way they were made to wear.
Amen! I totally agree with you. I only wear tights with dresses and yoga pants when working out. It looks really un-classy. I don't understand why so many girls do it. I can see if you're a little girl, that's a different, but it's def not a good look on older females.
Different styles. I don't like them much but it's suits some people.
You see.. I thought this too and I used to shun everyone that wore leggings a pants. Until I got my first pair of jeggings and once you go there you just can't go back. They're so comfortable. I put on jeans now and I'm just like "gross.. why would anyone wear these everyday?" It's just.. ahhh.
Seriously, girls if you don't wanna get hooked don't start. It's like crack it only takes one time.
