I have always been a big supporter of the idea that leggings should not be worn as pants. I will wear them with dresses, sweaters and shirts, as long as they cover my rear end and my upper thighs. However, these leggings from Oasap are really thick...thicker than sweatpants even, because they have a lining on the inside to keep your legs warm. Since they are so thick and 100% opaque, I decided to break my usual leggings rule. When my friend saw me wearing these, she told me that I should wear a longer shirt with them, so it got me wondering what other people thought.
Where do you draw the line when it comes to leggings? I know there are some people that will only wear them under an item of clothing that is knee-length or longer. Then there are some people who have no problem wearing leggings as pants. Others (like me) fall somewhere in the middle. I'm not saying that any of these are right or wrong, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts. Even taking modesty out of the equation, which do you think looks best? I definitely don't think thin leggings look good as pants, simply because they do not hide a person's flaws...at all.
P.S. I pretty much lived in these EMU boots last winter. I don't care if they are not "fashionable"...they are so comfy and keep my feet nice and cozy!
