Leggings are tight fitted trousers worn by females. They are worn under tunics, kurtas, overalls or even long or short tops. Leggings teamed with crop tops are a new trend catching on with women, coupled with a pair of boots or loafers. They are made of lycra, cotton or other stretchable material. They are unlike trousers or denims and do not have pockets, belt loops.
Leggings can also be confused with stockings that end at the ankles or jeggings as they are very close in style as well as material. Jeggings are leggings of material that look like denim.
