    I have plain black leggings (which I made myself) and often wear them with short skirts, either tartan or denim & my big biker boots.

    Okay, I'm a bit stupid right now, but I'll ask you anyway :blush:

    What is the exact difference between tights and leggins?

    :huh:

    ^ not stupid at all :) tights can't really be worn alone because even if they are opaque, they still have a sheer/see-through quality because they're made of a a very thin material - they're usually not worn alone for reasons of modesty. :p many people (myself included) do cut off the foot of their tights and wear them under skirts to achieve a similar effect to leggings, though. the pictures travolta posted would be considered tights.

    true leggings, on the other hand, are made a thicker material...they're a bit more substantial and can potentially be worn alone. i.e. mettchen's peter jensen leggings she pictured earlier are most definitely leggings, not tights.

    hope that makes sense :flower:

    worn them to death first time around, i couldnt possible go back there..
    excuses to find them hideous much more when worn with loose tshirts or mid hip embroidered or printed caftans
    best possible interpretation: when at 3/4 length* and worn under shorter, full skirt/dress for effect

    *they need to be one colour, prints wont do at all :ninja:

    See, this is addictive! Because I find both the skirt/dress and outfit tends to look better with, say black, underneath. The niceness/colour/texture of the skirt stands out much better.

    But I object to those who wear them with denim mini skirts :doh: :ninja:

    I made electric blue ones to bring a bit of life to those all black days. :lol:
    Love black full skirt, black top, then blue underneath :woot:

    sounds super strawberry.. the look is pretty 'forward' but popular over here :)

    btw, we share the same 'kick' with skirts/dresses looking better on black/block colour and i prefer to get this with opaque tights.. i'm so used to them that in the summer i seldom wear skirts or dresses..
    i could use the 3/4 (short) leggins trick but its too hot for this style here in the summer*..

    *hence me getting stuck on my combats, combat jumpsuits, pareos and 'boybeater' sleeves t-shirts (thats all i've been wearing for the last two weeks)

    i'm still kind of divided on leggings. i don't think i could ever pull it off, but on some people, with the right outfit, i think it looks outstanding. i just wanted to share this picture. i love scarlett johansson, but i can't figure this out. obviously the girls over at go fug yourself can't either.

    i feel like they might be ok if they were just a little bit shorter: under the knee, maybe?

    right francesca... mid calf is cute with skirts, but they need to be full skirts in a 'childish/kidculture' way

    leggings look bit weird with tight short jeans ..

    (off topic: i like scarlet but she simply cant dress herself.. )
