Welll… I might as well get into this discussion. I’ve tried leggings and find that I’m very particular. I much prefer those with the dark gauze like background with a patterned cloth overlay, in black, of course (I hope that description makes sense!). I like to wear them with a loose blouse or tunic and definitely heels!
I have worn silk long johns (top and bottom are two separate pieces, hence no need for a trapdoor!) when camping for years, and know several outdoors kinda guys who wear long john “leggings” every day when working outdoors in the winter… cowboys, oil field workers, etc.
Hugs to all, Lisa
