What do you wear on your legs with skirts

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

yep tights for sure. they are warm and for me they are smoother looking than just bare legs.

Purple is much underused by guys and needs to be revisited. One of my favourite skirts is purple and I keep trying to find a purple waistcoat. (Unfortunately, purple waistcoats seem to sell out quickly so one need to jump on 'em before they go.)
I have several purple tops, and remain on the hunt for purple trousers. I love the colour! I tend to wear my purple tops with navy trousers, but will sometimes dig out my dusky pink chunks (I have bright red ones too) and use them instead. Lots of lovely colour. Naturally I have several pairs of purple tights, sheer and opaque. Oh, and my grey suede shoes (bought miles away in Denver) have purple laces...

Next up, a purple skirt once I can find one.

Hi Ray,
I suspect you have a much brighter purple in mind, but dead cheap off-the-peg kilts come in a 'heritage of Scotland' tartan which is mainly purple. The little kilt shown fits me perfectly.

What do I wear on my legs with skirts? Here's a limited example:

Yes, that was laundry day in early December, 2013.

No, I am not afraid of colour. The flash washed some of it out; the pink tights are bright enough to assault the eyeballs of onlookers and potentially do lasting damage if they don't look away in time.

Talk about NEON STROBES it is worse than the Christmas Tree lights on the top of a Police cruiser.
Obi-Wan would have been proud to have this kind of display with his light sabre !

And now the best part of the confessional on where were you looking ?
What did you expect to see ? You have that deer in the headlights look !

If a women wore these and you looked too closely you probably would have some nasty welts
on the top of your head where you had been hit by a brelly - aka umbrella !
Think of Ruth Buzzi on the "Laugh-In" with the 'Dirty Ole Man' !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

@Kirbstone I had one of those Heritage of Scotland Pakistani kilts, really comfy and solid. That was at the time I even would have had dared to wear purple. It is a more subtle purple with pink black and white. :lol: The brown pleated curdory skirt looks good with Adrian Square men tights. The quality is comparable with HQ "women" tights, so they last longer.

What do I wear? Tights, of course! Especially during winter!

Thanks, Kilted John!

By the by, regarding the picture I recently posted, I wore that outfit on an outing last Saturday, and no one gave me so much as the time of day, but then, that's been pretty much the norm for me. Here's a bit of irony, while I was in Best Buy, I twentysomething lady complimented me on my pendant, so did her twentysomething boyfriend. Despite the snug pencil skirt, tights and a handbag, they mentioned my jewelry. I thought that was humorous.

Tights work well. I also find over-the-knee socks to be a bold look.
