Good Leggings/ Bad Leggings

I love leggings, whether they're paired with a dress, a short skirt, a long coat, or a tunic. And I think leggings can work on a variety of body types. But leggings can be a mixed bag- worn right, you look long and lean. Worn wrong, you look like a hoochie. And even celebrities aren't immune from leggings disasters. Let's take a look at a few good leggings/bad leggings examples.

Here, Nicky Hilton is having a good leggings day. I would totally wear this outfit- black leggings and black boots topped off by an awesome leopard print coat. Most importantly, her coat covers her rear end. This is key with leggings, as you will see.

I love all these ideas! (The good ones, I mean ;)) I never know what to wear with my leggings...as long as my tush is covered, we should be OK!

I think a good rule of thumb is when in doubt with leggings, DON'T DO IT. If you think it looks weird or inappropriate, you're probably right! :)

Phew! Thanks for this. Two pairs just arrived in the mail yesterday and I'm a little nervous about them. I'm not a "big girl", but I'm no Kate Moss either. Thank God the shhipment came with a tunic dress/top and sweater that goves well over my girly bits.

I think when they're done right, they can be really slimming. I mean, they draw attention to the slimmest parts of our bodies, right? But I don't want to see ANYONE's ass in leggings, even if she weighs 90 pounds! :D

I basically lived in leggings when I was pregnant. Not only do they look great on soon to be mamas, but they are super comfy!

i used to wear leggings back in the 90's A LOT. and they seem to be thicker then. now they're getting thinner and more sheer than ever.& now they love "slashing" the leggings to make it look like pants..(like lots of slashes/cut outs in front) i don't care if hollywood girls wear the "slashed" leggings. it makes them look tacky. the basic black leggings is always classic.
