Hello,

I'm planning my fall wardrobe and I found an awesome deal on leggings. I'm trying to decide whether or not to include them in my wardrobe. If you have seen them, would you mind sharing pictures?

Thanks so much,
Becky

i just can't bring myself to wear them.... i have several pairs of capri footless tights but just don't think they are flattering on my legs (very muscular calves). i put them on, but never make it out of the door wearing them.
what is the old saying- if you are old enough to have worn the trend before, don't wear it again?? i am only in my thirties, but i definately remember the leggings with tunics and long sweaters. hmm.... and i rocked them at the time:)
perhaps actual leggings in the ankle length? any suggestions for how to either jump in or just forget about it?

Yeah, I'm having a hard time jumping on this trend as well. I also did the legging with a big sweater or T-shirt thing when I was a teenager and my body is definitely different now! I'm thinking of going for leggings that stop just below the knee to wear with a tunic or short dress, something with some waist shaping and not as baggy as what I used to wear.

They are so back, in many permutations. I have lived through one cycle of them, and I think I am just too old to do it again.

I know I'm too old to revisit them, even though I was a teenager the last time they came out.

It's not a trend I like now. If you like it, though, nothing should stop you from doing it.

Me too! I find them very comfortable though. Perhaps for just around the house?

I'm in my 30s too, and wore the leggings & big shirts as a teen.

I would still wear leggings with the right outfit, but only in a casual context & around home. I wear them definitely opaque, ankle length & usually with boots.

Some of the outfits I would consider wearing leggings with, I also wear with narrow (not spray on) pants. It feels like a more grown up option, somehow. Also more flattering for my muscular legs :)
