Are You Ready To Go Bare Legged?

03/21/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Today’s the first day of spring, but does that mean you’re ready to shed your hose like Mischa? Always a risk taker, the actress stepped out for lunch in chilly New York last week wearing bloomer-style shorts and sandals. But we’ve got to say, if it’s cold enough to warrant her wool peacoat and scarf, it might be worth keeping your pants on! Or have it both ways, like Maria Menounous, who paired her shorts with opaque black tights in the much more temperate L.A. weather. Now that spring is in the air (or at least on the calendar), we are as ready for warm weather as Mischa, but we’re sticking to our tights like Maria. So, we want to know what you think. Tell us: When do you ditch your tights and go bare-legged? Have you done it already?

Who cares if you wear hose or not? Its going to be cold either way. I say go for whatever looks hot and if people have a problem they are just jealous.

Mischa’s legs look fine in this picture. In the past though, there has always something a bit off about her legs, like her thighs or hips are too big or something. Maybe this is just a more flattering angle for her.

Anyhow, you really shouldn’t wear tights with shorts, unless your shorts are knee length, at which point they might be considered crops.

I can’t believe people think their legs look big! The pictures demonstrate how legs should look. No wonder there are so many young girls out there with eating disorders. If people think Mischa Barton looks big, we’re in trouble.

Whatever the season, I would not be caught dead in Maria’s outfit. That shorty jumpsuit with tights looks TERRIBLE! It’s like a cut-off auto-worker’s uniform, paired with my high school uniform tights, plus witchy ankle boots and a belt thrown on in sad attempt to make the whole ensemble look feminine. For once, Mischa looks way better.

If you think that she has big legs than all of you must be way too judgemental maybe you should take a look at yourself befor you comment on others. It is no wonder girls have eating disorders apparently a size 2 isnt thin enough. Believe it or not ladies guys dont want skinny twigs with no curves, everyone is made with a different body type embrace yours and wear what you feel comfortable in

I didn’t say her legs looked big, I said they were ugly. She has weird knees and that makes her legs look all wrong. She just shouldn’t wear anything where you can see her knees.

Goergie Porgie,

Obviously somebody likes her legs…shes a freakin movie star. I dont think she cares what you think cuz you arent writing her multi-million dollar checks.

Shel on

Tights under shorts?? Are we kidding? She looks ridiculous. If it’s that cold out, wear capris or jeans. Don’t show off your complete and utter lack of fashion sense (and obviously the stylist was off that day) by leaving the house in an outfit that stupid. Of course, the hooker look on Mischa isn’t much better.

I wear shorts when it’s too hot for jeans or long pants. It’s 40 degrees in northern Wisconsin today, which feels like a heat wave since we’re just coming out of winter, but shorts because it’s “spring”? Give me a break. That’s like wearing a parka in August.

Chirsta on

Arizona caught onto the memo a lot quicker than the rest. We’ve been having 80 degree weather for quite awhile now, so I’m wearing shorts all day long.

When do I ditch my tights? I would NEVER wear tights with shorts. Save that for dresses. In cold weather I wear pants. Mischa’s outfit looks way better than Maria’s does. Look at those shoes on Maria. Tell me who would wear those? For once Mischa Barton looks decent, normally I don’t care for her fashion choices, but I think she looks pretty decent in the photo above.
