Its very cold tonight, but we will be in a bar which will be warm. Walking there will be chilly but other than that I think its fine.

Dp disagrees and tells me I need to put on tights. But they spoil the 'look' of the dress!! and I want to show off my toned legs from working hard at the gym

AIBU to not put on tights??

YANBU im northern so may be biased. I've never gone out in tights or a coat ever.

goosebumps aren't a good look either !

If you want to get cold legs, you crack on.
Me I'd have thick tights on under leggings covered by jeans.

YANBU I rarely wear tights on a night out, they just don't go with some outfits and if your legs are hot, you need to show them off!

Yer what? It's freezing!

Wear your tights walking there upon arrival go into the bathroom and remove them and pit them in your bag. When it's time to leave go to the bathroom put them back on and walk home. Or leave the rights at home and get a taxi.

Yes yabu, it's fecking freezing out there😨

As for pp saying they don't take a coat. No words weak Aussie who is slowly getting used to bastard cold winters 7 years in

Your legs - your choice. If you don't mind the chill then go without tights, show off your hard gym work & have a great night! wine

Yep, I get it, sometimes bare legged works best. Got to be offset by the fact it is sodden freezing tonight. Have you got a long coat?

Haha pug I'm in Scotland so a bit of cold is no surprise! In my younger days wouldn't have thought twice but im now starting to doubr myself...

Tights are cunts.

I can never find ones that fit. I end up waddling along like a penguin balancing an egg on it's feet because the gusset of my tights is down by my knees.

WTF? Who invented them. Who??

Tell your DP you'll wear tights if he does.

I used to be a bugger for going out bare legs, skyscraper heels and no coat. This was until I was about 25. I'm now 30 and it's flat shoes, tights and full winter coat all the way. I'm such a frumpy ma now and I don't even care grin

I'm in Scotland, it's freezing here! Out at the park this morning I had thermal long johns in under thermal leggings! You must be made of stronger stuff than me...

pugsake Sat 05-Nov-16 20:32:28

I'm near Newcastle (might explain it)

Have a fab night whatever you wear.

God you lot are hard as nails. I'm in awe. I cannot imagine going out bare-legged basically unless it's August.

LuluLovesFruitcakes Sat 05-Nov-16 20:39:06

Drink more and it'll warm up your legs ;) wine

AlexaTwoAtT Sat 05-Nov-16 21:46:56

Bare legs in winter? Such a bad look.

MissMogwi Sat 05-Nov-16 21:55:24

Unless your tights are a high denier they won't really keep your legs any warmer, however they will stop the 'corned beef legs' look we favour up here in the frozen north.

Your legs, your rules Hun.

haveacupoftea Sat 05-Nov-16 21:58:20

Its your legs, wear what you want on them.

MariposaUno Sat 05-Nov-16 22:33:37

Yanbu I hardly ever wear tights and if I ever do I wreck them before I even get them up to my knees.

You won't feel the cold after five min's.

Fluffyears Sat 05-Nov-16 22:41:36

I can't understand going out half dressed. I'm in Scotland and I remember a freezing night (had to scrape the car) and I saw girls out in skimpy dresses with no coats and bare legs.

What about nude tights?
