Sadly, some people do not know how to properly wear them. I believe improper use of leggings is what ruined the fad the first time around. This is used to provide traffic data and reports to the authors of articles on the HubPages Service. I also target yoga pants in this one, too. The fashion police needs to be ever present on this matter!

I've gained some weight recently, so leggings are my best pants right now I think someone that does not know how to even spell the word ridiculous might not want to judge me. I am trying to help others not look ridiculous when wearing things in an inappropriate way that grosses out the rest of society. Have a nice day! How rediculous you sound. How about you let others wear things the way they want. I hate it when people are so insistant about the right and wrong ways to wear things.
Its quite pathetic really. Sunshine - I think with a long shirt or a skirt, leggings can look good on adults, but it is all about the style of the leggings and how it compliments the rest of the outfit.
I've seen some horrific leggings nightmares at the mall. For this reason, leggings are bound to go out of style soon for the rest of us. Thanks for the comment! Thanks for sharing this with your daughter. Even though it sounds like she doesn't need the help, she probably knows girls that do. Thanks for the timely useful information you shared with us. I will be sharing this with my teen-aged daughter who is fond of wearing leggings, though there is not much to worry about but just in case she forgot and goes overboard: There should be an age limit on who wears leggings.
Under ten yrs old, maybe younger. I've never seen anyone over the age of ten look good in a pair of leggings. Thank you for getting on board with me on this one. In a perfect world, everyone would follow the rules of leggings. I know it isn't happening when I see the way people are dressed at the mall, but I can only do so much.
I think there are a few people I work with who could do with reading this I love my leggings, but only ever wear them out of my house with a long top, or a woolen dress and boots. I wouldn't inflict my horrendous backside on anyone!!! Trust me, I see the same look in the U. I am not just talking about skinny or average sized girls either. Great article, if only more people would pay attention! Walking down any street in England, you're pretty much guaranteed to see a girl wearing poor quality, black leggings as if they were skinny jeans - normally with white underwear underneath which you can see all too much of.
I suspect you and your classmates are really skinny and can get away with it to some degree. It still doesn't mean it is a good idea, but I see it everyday and appreciate you admitting you do it. I appreciate you views and opinions but it doesn't mean I'm going to stop. I think it looks really good: I'm really happy I could help. If I can just change one life at a time with this hub, I feel good. I hope she takes your advice. Tunics were created for a reason.
I definitely need to show this hub to my younger sister! She's 14 and she is one of those girls who wears leggings with short shirts and also wears jeggings as jeans. I tell her it looks ridiculous and she just won't listen to me. I'm showing her this for sure! Thanks for the humorous yet very informative read. Yes, Shaina, feel free to buy some leggings and just simply wear them the right way.
Too many people are exposing the world to way too much! With a long shirt or tunic, leggings look great. Thanks for dropping by and happy I could help! You've done a very good job with this and I enjoyed reading! I've been meaning to get leggings but then I go to the mall and notice how horrible most of the girls make them look there. Now I know for sure that they aren't ment to be worn those ways. Thanks for letting me know I can wear leggings without joining the circus!!!
I am glad you think so. I can't believe some of the interesting looks I see when I am out. Even just a tag that says, "No one wants to see your butt; wear a tunic. I am glad I inspired you to try them again with tunics. It can be a great look. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment! I stopped wearing them cuz i thought i looked really fat in them.
After reading your article, i just want to get a proper tunic for them!! I want to buy more leggings yay!! I am glad you are on board with my mission, too. Everyone should wear leggings the correct way! Thank you for your support. I hope people take your tips with them the next time they are out shopping for leggings. Get it right, ladies. Print out Jeannieinabottle's tips and tape them to your full length mirror to make sure you follow the rules of leggings to a "T". You know the correct way to wear leggings!
Thanks for sharing with everyone. That way, anyone that is in doubt can read how you wear them and do the same. I wear black leggings in the summer at times, but with long, stylish tops and nice accessories to match.
I love them as they are comfortable and gives me freedom of movement. Yes, I do think a warning label might help out people buying leggings. Maybe then they would understand how to wear them correctly. And no, you are not alone at all with your opinion on leggings I do also agree with you on stores having more long top options. Sometimes I buy a long top, yet it shrinks after one wash!
No wonder they go out of fashion. Maybe they should come attached with a warning! I can't believe the sights I see walking around the mall and even in the work place. Thanks for speaking up on this subject. I thought it was me not being open minded! It would be nice to have more long tops in the stores to choose from though. Oh Jennifer, you've opened up a whole new subject. I've actually debated this myself as to whether yoga pants are leggings, and if so, do different rules apply to them?
I have been known to wear yoga pants and not keep my rear end covered. However, since they are thicker, I think this is more acceptable. I am honestly not sure. I am considering investigating this subject further for a future hub. Thanks for the vote up and for the comment! I guess I consider my yoga pants to be a part of the legging family. They're a staple for my around the house mommy look. I didn't wear many leggings when they were in fashion in the 80's and they're not any easier to find now.
For them to be long enough I need a 35" inseam. A top that is long enough to cover my bottom is just as much trouble. I'll wear leggings under ski pants or around the house, but I do wear yoga pants to the grocery store sometimes. When you see people there in their mismatched pajamas and house shoes I don't feel like I've fallen too far off the fashion mark. Thanks for sharing your fashion tips. Voted up and sharing! Thanks for the votes up! Leggings are so cute if worn the right way.
Thanks for helping promote my hub. Voted up up and up! I love leggings - my favorite look is my black leggings with ankle boots - long shirt and cute vest! Saiorse - Wow, thank you for being brave enough to admit you are one of the people that shows off without the tunic!
It is not necessarily the panty lines that offends people though Some things are just not meant to be seen by everyone. But thank you for stepping up and admitting you proudly wear your leggings without the long shirt. I see this look everyday, so I know there are people out there doing it.
I hate to admit that I am old enough to have worn leggings, in the 's in high school. Back then, we never thought about pantylines, and I have to admit that I showed more than my share, in grey, and white leggings back then!! With the fashion trends coming back to tight, unforgiving leggings, showing every little 'evil' bit of the chocolate that we adore, why hide all of the soft, cuddly parts, under tunics?
My Fiancé loves when I wear tight leggings, with a visible pantyline! I am happy you both agree. I am hoping to force everyone to wear leggings the right way so not to offend the public. Thanks for reading and for the comments!
Jeannieinabottle, Great legging tips! You have made some suggestions that will be helpful to many! Leggings are wonderful and can be "flattering" when worn tastefully Totally agree with your comments - leggings can be very flattering if worn the right way!
I am glad you are on board with me on this one. I believe improper use of leggings is what ruined the fad the first time around. They are so comfortable and it is a shame that people don't get it. Everyone must stop abusing the look and wear some long sweaters. My eyes can't take it much more! My brother and I were discussing a campaign to ban skinny jeans; I added leggings to the ban because I am distraught nearly everytime I leave my house. The fashion police needs to be ever present on this matter!
What I've seen is downright undignified and uncivilized! Yes, I hope with this advice we can keep the leggings trend going. They are just so comfortable and affordable. I have seen some really scary leggings fashions out there. I suppose some people are not taking my advice. Thanks for reading and voting my hub up! Great hub Jeannie and here's hoping it will give longer life to our wonderful and 'forgiving' leggings.
I do agree with everything you have said about wearing leggings wrongly - omg the sights you see out on the street is vomit inducing!!!
The sad part about it, is that I'm sure these women think they look good - but the opposite is true!! Well, I am glad we agree on this.
I was sure someone was going to insist wearing leggings without a tunic or dress is OK, but everyone is on the same page that comments. It is interesting that I still see folks doing this though.
Maybe they are not reading this hub. I love leggings too, I wear them with long shirts, tunics or short dresses. Not that I wore leggings in the 80s I'm just a baby in that decade , but I totally agree with you jeannie, I also don't like the fashion faux pas that comes with leggings - it is not nice to look at from all angles! I am glad you read this hub then. I certainly hope you've at least been wearing the leggings as pants.
I hope you did not mistaken them for a hat! I am embarrassed to say that I have been wearing leggings all wrong. In fact, I'm pretty sure I was the cause of it's disappearance in the early 90s Thank you for helping me put the right leg ging forward in this regard.
Thanks for reading and for sharing some leggings memories. I also had leggings back in the day and I still have a couple of pairs. I can even fit into to them; they just don't look exactly the same on me now. I would say they are not quite a flattering as they once were.
Just recently got back into leggings. The last time I wore them was, well, when you said they were popular too scared to say the year. And the only reason I've put them on was because I got myself couple of dresses which tend to "travel up my legs" and look a bit I love your hub, made me travel back in time and gave me more courage to jump into my leggings. Yes, I loved the way you described stretchy leggings as forgiving! Thanks for reading and for the comment.
I really like leggings since they are very forgiving pants. You can gain or lose a few pounds, but they will just stretch along with you. Leggings can definitely be hard to grasp, but I think when they're worn properly they're a great option.
Thanks for the Hub! Yes, short shirts and leggings are not a good look. Most people agree with me on this subject, yet when I walked through the mall yesterday, I saw so many people with that look. I guess I just have to try to reach one person at a time. Thanks for reading and for the comment! I never do that before with the short shirts and leggings together as I find it an uneasy and impolite way of match I am shocked at how many people I see in public wearing short shirts and leggings together.
It is usually not a pretty sight. You are right - leggings are intended for short dresses and sweater dresses. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment. Thanks for the hub! I adore leggings, especially now that I'm pregnant again, but they are a way to make short dresses and sweater dresses work. I don't think I could even wear a short shirt and leggings around the house! Yes, there are some things best left to the imagination.
Thanks for the votes and the comment! I love my leggings and you have it right on! Leggings ARE for under tunics and long shirts! Thanks for a good hub filled with good advice! Voted up and useful! Some of their shoes are cute though. Yes, perhaps a famous actress then. You are allowed to be curvy if you are an actress. Not likely to become a super model. The poor girl is too endowed and curvy.
They are all stick thin and boy straight. Maybe a famous actress. That is a really good point. I am sure at that height it is tough finding something long enough for her. Maybe she will become a super model! But for now, yes, leggings are a must. My daughter bought a dress shirt that was so short I wouldn't let her wear it without leggings. She is 5'10", just 14 and has a hard time finding dresses long enough. She now has a colorful variety of leggings. She is allowed to wear the dress shirt.
Thank you for your comment and thanks for using the word "tush. That is way nicer! Since then my once firm and toned body has gotten a little mushy It allows me to keep a feminine look while still covering up.
They are a true asset in the closet if worn right! This hub has turned out to be much more popular than I anticipated. A lot of women have strong opinions about leggings. I do know what you mean about jeggings vs. When I went to put the Amazon ads up, there was a pair of skinny jeans being advertised as jeggings. I changed the keywords a bit and fixed it. I can't confuse readers like that! I am trying to help the leggings wearers of the world, not confuse them. Thanks for the vote up! So many people need to read this hub!
I will say though that a lot of companies are calling things jeggings that really are skinny jeans. I have a pair from Levi that have denim and are thick, even hang like jeans but Levi says they are jeggings I suppose when it's put like that, maybe some gals should stay away.
