If leggings were banned for good what would you wear instead?

And if possible could you link please?

I love little tunics and dresses but often find them too short so leggings were great but not everyone agrees that they look good!

In the winter I can wear thick tights with dresses but what do I do in the summer?

I have lots of skinny jeans but I just love wearing dresses - so what could I do if there were no leggings?

Also - what do you really think of leggings?

Skinny jeans would work with a tunic or dress just as well to be honest. Or even a decent pair of flares. It all depends on the outfit.

I find a lot of tunics and dresses look like tops rather than dresses as they are so short so that gives free reign to wear whatever you like on your bottom half!

I think good quality, properly fitting long black leggings with a dress looks fine for a casual look. I wear them lots (so comfy!) ...but imo they look awful if your bum isn't covered and they cannot be worn for smart / dressy.

God knows. I hate wearing tights so wear leggings with dresses and boots in the winter too.

I'd be lost without leggings, although if they were banned could I wear really long socks instead please? smile
