    I wear black tights with denim shorts or dresses all year round because I hate how pale and chubby my legs look while bare and black is a more flattering and slimming colour imo to tan tights or just bare legs on me.

    I wear tights even when it's boiling as I'm self-conscious and hate my legs.

    Don't skip leg day? :lol:

    Because girls are extremely judgemental and just stare at your legs whispering horrible things to their friends. This just makes you far more self conscious when not wearing tights. And as someone already said, it's not exactly blazing hot here lol.

    Parents would kick up a fuss if I were to show my legs...

    I just stick with skinny jeans and a tee in the summer
    Why a fuss?

    Honestly it is intimidating when a woman has hairier arms then me, and I barely have hair on my body.

    Because I have scarring and pigmentation from eczema on my legs.
    Last week it was so hot I couldn't even wear nude coloured tights that I went without tights but I felt so self conscious :/ I'm glad it's a little cooler so I can wear opaque ones. Incidentally cotton blend tights are so comfortable and much better if you have eczema as they let your skin breathe, nylon is however bad as it makes you sweat and therefore irritated.

    Because I'm tall and I'm not comfortable with how short it makes skirts even when they're not designed to be short. Also because I don't tan, like, ever, and my legs are pasty white and pretty much glow in the dark. Also because I have KP (keratosis pilaris) and even though it's quite common I still hate how it makes my legs look (it's worse on my upper arms but I'm not that self-conscious about them?). Oh, and also so that I don't have to shave every other day. Nobody has time for that **** when you can just wear tights instead.
