How do you all feel about wearing leggings?  I think the look is cute... but I'm wondering if their is an age expiration date on this look?  Is it only cute on younger people?  What should/would you pair with leggings? Sweater? Long shirt?  Tall boots?

I think they only look good on particular body types.  I am a bit plus-sized and it just doesn't work on me.  My best friend is very thin and very toned, 29 y.o., and they look excellent on her.  Her cooler-weather look is quite good: very low rise black leggings with lace trim on the bottom, Ugg boots, a cropped t-shirt and a Patagonia-style fleece jacket.  I think to pull off leggings you need to have shapely hips and quite a perky, firm butt, but of course some of us don't have those features.  One hint she told me is to wear a thong with them, to, uhh, "lift and separate".

Leggings is a wow, sturdily. With a longer tunic - perfect.

I am an older woman and I have been wearing leggings. They come in all different fabrics and colors so I have chosen leggings with a texture to help camoflauge some bumbs and lines and will pair them with a longer shirt. I also tend to go a size larger than what I would generally wear so that they aren't as skin tight as some might wear them.  Depending on what I am doing I will wear either boots or tennis shoes with them.
