Mine are too heavy to wear with anything but boots. They just tend to not wear certain colors after a certain age. Also, they are feminine. I have yet to have anyone tell me I look horrid in one of my Salwar Kameez outfits. But, I have had someone tell me I look horrible in western clothing. Hence, I still am a bit blundered as to why we in European countries and the USA always have such a calamity with our styles.
Well, it looks cute on little girls, but once you hit about 13 the look should be avoided. The leggings as pants look is very popular in LA at the moment and lots and lots of women are looking really terrible as a result.
At one point I was also very against skinny jeans, but now that I have a pair I really love them. They give a lot more support than leggings and I think can look good with a regular top. I do like skinny jeans as I wore them above with a large jumper or similar. They are just too hot for Singapore! Some like to cover their skin and many like to flaunt it. Leggings are a hit and it is flattering to be in style. I would do the same for skinny jeans and not buy them too tight.
Sounds like you look very stylish with leggings and skinny jeans indeed! Very nice guide on how to where leggings. I too love wearing leggings and tight jeans especially right now with the colder weather. I pair it with short dresses, sweater dresses or long cardigans.
Knee-high boots for sure. Thanks and welcome to 40plusstyle! Yes, they are great in cold weather. I know you are an expert at wearing them. It would be nice to feature some of your outfits in this post. This are a piece of clothing leggings,jeggings that I have not tried that much yet. I have two skinny jeans and so liking it but still I am not really that confident. It shows some of those not good looking flabs, lol.
So now I have to re-design my style especially if I am wearing skinny tights. Yes I know that feeling. I am a 70 year old women size 8 and still love fashion. I love dresses but have bad viens on my legs, so I wear pants or maxi dresses. Would it be ok to wear a slightly shorter dress lenght with leggins or would I look ridiculous! I think that would be totally ok and can look very chic! Wear with a nice tunic or dress.
You could combine with ankle booties or shoes with a 2. Thanks for your questions Valerie. Feel free to put images from you style up on the style forum.

I am going to a wedding rehearsal May 4th in California for my niece. But I am from the Seattle area. We wear boots here a bit longer in the spring because weather is cooler. I am 49 and the outfit is very age appropriate and have gotten complements on it. Thank you for your help. Hi Liz, I think that you can wear boots in cooler weather all the time. But then you are saying that it is a wedding rehearsal so that should probably be fine. For the real wedding I would try to wear dressier shoes and I would stay away from leggings too.
Thank you Sylvia for your response. As it turned out it was fairly warm so I wore sandals with the outfit and it looked just fine. Yes I agree about legging and weddings. I wore a flowery, flowing spring colored dress and some black ankle strap sandals. I found out that boots are often wore almost year around there in Long Beach area. Thanks you again for your input. I am 70 and tried on leggings today. They are so comfortable!
I have a calf length winter coat. Thought my short boots looked funny, so bought long boots. Thanks for the great advice. Yes, longer cardigans and tunics are definitely the way to go with leggings. Hope you find something nice and I hope you can share your looks with us on the style forum! I am 62 and I got a pair of leggings from a friend for my birthday.
She said I should wear them to my yoga classes but I am concerned about wearing them out in public at my age. I love how comfy they are but the material is not much thicker then a pair of opaque tights.
I been wearing them around the house but need some opinions on whether I should wear them out. I would not wear them if they are see through, but other than that leggings for yoga are ok. If see through, then only wear them as you would tights.
You are never too old to wear normal leggings for your normal clothes, but I would never wear them without a long tunic or short dress over them. At 66, I wear my leggings all the time but never without a tunic or top that is long enough to cover both beast……. It is a Huge pet peeve of mine to see anyone, of any age, advertising!! Must keep those beast in the barn ladies! Leggings are wonderful but do wear them modestly. I wear them with a tunic and booties or high boots and feel great.
Any top should fall below the butt area. I am over 60 and love leggins, but have trouble finding things to wear with them…longer tunics, etc. Can you give me some advice? I often wear short dresses over leggings instead of tunics.

So many Asians do; I can never guess the age of an Asian woman. My site is dedicated to this topic so you will find articles throughout this site that tackle it.
All the clothes I feature are in my opinion young and hip. I would say to trust your instinct. If you look in the mirror and it feels good to you, then it is. I am a 42 year old woman who happens to be African American. I am fit, a size 2 and look like I am about 29… I still get carded at the liquor store. I would like to know how I can maintain my style without looking too young. While I prefer to look 29 vs 42 whatever 42 may look like, being stylish and chic is important to me.
I also have trouble finding clothes sometimes because of my body type. So pants are usually tough. I have a size 2 waist and a size 4 butt like a tiny Kim Kardashian.
That is why I love my leggings and yoga pants. If you like to show both your waist and butt they sound like a good option.

I have several solid and patterned dresses that would work well for fall if I paired them with leggings. However, one colleague suggested that my dresses are too long fall just below the knee, since i am petite to wear with leggings.
Should I consider having the dresses hemmed to just above the knee? Yes dresses over pants and leggings usually look nicer when the dress is a bit shorter. That is usually how I wear the look check the what I wore section for lots of examples.

They were like leggings but not the skinnies type. They did form fit to the leg but rather had a smooth vertical look and did not hug the knee.
I would kill for a pair now. I had a great pair of black one when micro fiber first came out. Alas, they had a tear in them from being worn out and I have never been able to find another pair. Does anyone know if they still exist?
Soft Surroundings have some! Hopefully will see more soon, since I think they work great with boots! Thanks for great advice on leggings for the over 40ss etc. Was going to wear a jersey red dress — but thought this would be too dressed-up.

If you choose to wear a mini dress, you can wear leggings and tall or ankle boots.

Boots can look great with a casual pair of leggings, but make sure that the dress and the boots flatter your figure. When you wear leggings and boots, you can choose any dress style, but my favorite look is a simple, printed tank dress, worn with a belt, that you should wear either high on your waist or very low on the hips. The best choices for any outfit with leggings are flat shoes or sandals.
You can wear ballet flats , oxfords, gladiator sandals or even flip flops and with a nice tunic and a pair of your favorite leggings, you will get a nonchalant, but chic every day look.
This is an outfit you can wear if you are pregnant or you want to hide a few extra pounds. Also, the outfit is appropriate for any age and style and is great for transition periods, from summer to fall or for late spring days. For a more glamorous and authentic look, you can wear a kaftan with a pair of cropped leggings. A clutch and a pair of oversized earrings will fit amazingly, especially with a pair of wedge sandals.
This outfit is great for beach parties or quiet evenings with your loved ones. It will make your figure look better, while everyone will admire what a classy woman you are. I love music, fashion, old movies, because they can inspire, show you the light and give you much needed hope.
