Leggings look fine to me with a tunic top and boots.

Leggings can also work with flats, heels, and sandals too.

When people talk of Leggings it always puts me in mind of the Dad's Army "Godiva" episode & the wearing of "Fleshings".

Didn't get a pic, but tonight at the local diner, a rather large woman, came in to dinner wearing such leggings, in a houndstooth patter. The effect was psychadelic.

I'd bash a bit further...but I wore spandex bike shorts in the '80s so I haven't got a leg to stand on.

I am going to be sounding like a complete b.itch now but there's a woman In my next road who wears them all the time. I would guess, she's around a size 30 and I mean really obese. I have never got why she wears these leggings. It's not like she wears a long top over them. My husband came home one day and said she was walking up the road In a pair so tight. They were white and he said It was like watching a giant bag of flour wobbling up the road.

Yep. I have noticed that the probability that a woman will wear something that shows too much of her shape seems to increase directly in proportion to the amount of shape she has. Go figure.:yh_questn

At a guess. I would Imagine that ladies as large as my neighbour can't find clothes that big that are comfortable for them. Yet, It's such a fright to see.

Are you sure they're not meant to be slacks that she's just a little too large for?

Slacks ????

No, I really think they are leggings. You can see her pants through them.

No one over 22 or a size 5 should be wearing them... and no kardashian either.
I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.

Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.:-6

I was In Asda once and on my life, there was an obese woman bending over the Pizza freezer In leggings that had seen one too many washes. Now... how can I put this delicately ?

Ummmm It was that time of the month and her fairy hammock was clearly visable.

Here is a perfect example of why leggings - especially tan - do not work as pants....:)

And people like this probably actually looked in the mirror and said to themselves, "Yep, I look good.....ready to go."

I'm not sure why my attaching images doesn't work, but ......

in my previous post, here's the picture I was referring to:
