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. :)

  • 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.

  • 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 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

  • 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 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
