yea NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heather on

Oh Yuk!

Andre on

Yes. I have found that as long as you can have a well-mixed outfit, you can pretty much rock any shimmer in your closet.
I would definitelly pair it off with a black outfit, all around… maybe a mini-black-dress and black pumps or sandals, and my only accesory would be the leggings…
Just let your mind flow and something will come that will work just right!

jen on

Not even on Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!

iva on

NO WAY!

Paige on

Why not??? With a wispy long gold or white top layered over a camisole with a strappy sandal…sure. Hey – I said “no way” at first to black leggings, now I love them

You should check out this boy with his hand-made robo-leggings.

Danielle on

NEVER!! HAHA

cassie on

hmmm, if I were really fit (thin) and good looking, and if these leggings were matte, why not, with black skirt and black top + a belt same matte gold, why not :D
hmm and these leggings should be shorter too than these on that picture

Angelica on

These are pretty popular in Sweden, but I just hate them! How could you wear these?? Yuk!

Katie on

Well maybe but you need to make them shorter and they need to have the right outfit!! They are CUTE!!!

Sofia Padilla on

♥Brittany♥ on

♥Brittany♥ on

ummmm… no!

Ae on

why yes

who cares on

Unless it was halloween, or a costume party and I was going as a futuristic person, then no.

googlegirl on

If you made the price forty bucks for a pair and sold them as “designer”, a million and a half people would buy them. Sell them at Walmart? They’d be trashy. American Apparel know what they’re doing. They’ll be a hit- but I however, will take pictures of whomever wears them and laugh at them on my myspace. :)

Lindsay on

Yeah, I would wear them..just not in this lifetime….

person on

wow i have the same 1s in silver and they’re pretty hot i wore them to school

sweet_grl on

I’LL ONLY WEAR IT ON HALLOWEEN, BUT NEVER IN PUBLIC.

Jessica on

Never especailly that tight! Even if they were in

Allison on

totally! if you downplay the rest of the outfit (think: black mini-dress with black ballet flats) the leggings make it so you don’t need to wear jewelry.

Sabrina on

Eww, If You Have Some Extra Body weight, Do Not Wear Gold Leggings. I wouldn’t waer them.

Nicki on

Dear People,

NO!!!!

7202 on

OMG!!! NEVER!

taylor on

I LOVE THEM BUT THat might be because i have great legs and the rest of u dont!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary on

Eww, you would never catch me dead in those.

Camille on

Never, they look horrible!

camille on

Never!

Amber on

megan on

well actually i have those very exact same ones and i like them i guess i just have the confidence to pull them off..!?!

megan on

yeah

Kate on

I don’t know, maybe if you paired them with Napoleon Dynamite’s moon shoes….HAA!! NOT!!

Rose on

I can’t think of a single situation that I would wear those. I think some styles just don’t translate off the runway.

alex on

LOL. I hate leggings. They’re the worst, most unsexy, most unoriginal thing a girl could wear (unless it’s Halloween).

AnnieJ on

You must be joking!

mena on

if i had an *ss like that …then hell yeah!

Maria on

i would wear them…at a party…with a short black dress …in a club maybe…

Christy on

No, yuck! Unflattering no matter what your body looks like

Christy on

No, yuck! These are a fashion crime no matter how great your body looks.

ASHLEY on

NNNNOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! i would NEVER were those pants ….. well if it was a joke maybe……I mean no never!!!!!ever!!! never!!!!!

ASHLEY on

OK IS THIS SOME KIND OF JOKE BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY SAYING YES!!!!! I DONT CARE WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE THAT IS SOOOOOOOO SOOOOOO NOT RIGHT …..AND IF YOU WERE THEM PEOPLE WILL SAY YOU WERENT AWAKE WHEN YOU PICKED YOUR OUTFIT OUT THIS MORNING!!!!!

KAYE on

YEAH,I WOULD WEAR THEM IF I WAS A OLD LADY LIVING AT LEISURE WORLD GOING TO MY AROBICS CLASS

Katie on

BARF!

Sarah on

I wore these in a bright magenta-like color to a techno party.
but thats the only ocassion i would ever wear them…

Sarah on

I just bought a pair in a New York fashion store the other day…

……. and am using them as a haloween costume

Emily on

I LOVE these leggings hav them in mettalic blue =}

Emily on

umm yea have them in blue mettalic =] LOVE THEM

Jessica on

I love all leggings like these. they are so lush.
I hate it when people say i wear them for halloween and for partys! you should look after them instead of using them. they have a life aswell you know. love them.

MALOU on

I WOULD ! ITS TOTALLY LONDON STYLE ..

Mia(fake name) on

These are totally hot. I’m SO adding these to my fashion line. They’re fresh, hot, and sexy…under a dress (fit for leggings) why not??

Katrina Woiten on

I’d wear them clubbing maybe but its hardly what you’d wear to the grocery store or to work…not too many places one could wear these.

trust on

I would def wear these

Jessica on

I love, love, love them! I got a black pair today and I’m looking for a gold, silver, or fuschia pair.

sarah on

all of you guys saying these are yuck and disgusting are badly out of touch with fashion! obviously no bodys going to wear them with a t-shirt and trainers when they go the supermarket, but ive seen these on plenty of people teamed with a mini dress or long baggy vest and sky high heels and theyre gorgeous!

beauty princezz on

yes,for a party… i think YES…
YES YES YES why not? its HOT.

Julee on

I actually have a pair and if you know how to wear them and what to wear them with then why not?
Anyway, if you’ve got it – flaunt it!!!
Those who say they are for halloween obviously have no fashion sense……..

trixsi on

serching just for those! Where can i et them?!

Lisa on

Yes! They would look cool with a black sequin blazer and gladiator heels

Esita Maen on

These are So Cute but they would never suit me.
If they did, I would totally wear them, but for a party not to just for walking around the shops, well maybe.

niki on

heak yes haters!
