i love them but YIKES I just saw a woman wearing some with just thin hip length sweater.

they are not trousers guys

How would you wear them though? Just with a long top? I imagine they're not terribly forgiving on anything less than great legs which of course I know you have.

i dont think I could wear them. i LOVE the look of them, think they are for teens with tiny teeny skirt things and dm boots , would look ace

I had some last year, wore once with long, arse covering jumper.
Didn't like them, they made my legs look lumpen.

they are more for children, i think. to be worn like footless tights. dd1 has some, shes 6 and half and wears with clumpy boots and denim or cord skirt with checked shirt.

I agree you have to be young and very slim to get away with it . My DD is 13 she has some , and wears them with a very short skirt and boots - looks fine on her .
