I remember wearing long-johns as a kid during the winter and a few yrs ago when I attempted to try snowboarding. But now that it's starting to go in the minuses I'm seriously thinking of breaking some out!
Instead of real long-johns I want to wear tights but I hate how bulky they feel under skinny jeans :( What do you guys do to keep warm without looking and feeling bulky?

I've been wondering the same thing! Can't wait to see some replies here.
Last year was the first year I wore long-johns, since I had to walk to the metro everyday to get to work (I used to have a car before moving to Montreal...and had no need with a car starter..oh how I miss that! lol). I never wore skinny jeans then, so I didn't have a problem, you couldn't tell I was wearing long-johns at all under my jeans and dress pants.
I really need something to keep my legs warm this year!
|what would be cool... on Dec 16, 2009 @ 11:17 am|
is if jean companies made a thin lining in jeans for winter like they do for baby jeans haha.
|they do make jeans like that.... on Dec 16, 2009 @ 12:06 pm|
....but they are ugly. I have seen them out there.....
|I use layers on Dec 16, 2009 @ 01:55 pm|
I wear a thin legging underneath it helps. Especially when the cold wind is blowing.
|really?? on Dec 16, 2009 @ 03:06 pm|
I've never seen jeans that have the lining. I'm not talking about a fleece/jogging material as the lining haha. Something similar to a tight but maybe a bit thicker.
|under armour of course.... on Dec 17, 2009 @ 03:01 pm|
I wear under armour....under my sweaters, pants, skirts....its functional, thin and WARM....
(but it's a bit expensive)
|layers are always the best! on Dec 22, 2009 @ 12:29 pm|
I'd recommend wearing a thin legging and tall boots. Make sure
|pantyhose on Dec 24, 2009 @ 02:28 pm|
A tip from my coworker: Pantyhose! I have been wearing pantyhose for a week now and it definitely makes a big difference. You are not toasty warm but the wind and cold temperature becomes tolerable.
My coworker told me to cut off the feets (of an old pair of pantyhose w/ runs) b/c your feet sweats in the pantyhose and then your feet will freeze.
But I've been wearing my pantyhose with the feets and they are ok. Good enough for my 1 hour bus ride to/from work. :)

|silk long johns on Dec 25, 2009 @ 11:13 am|
I am always freezing in winter and one year someone bought me silk long johns. I think they were from Eddie Bauer or something, but you can get them other places. Because they are silk, they are very thin/sheer, breathable and warm. It's amazing how something so fine can keep you warm. This is something you won't notice under clothes, but it makes a difference for keeping you toasty :)
|thigh-high socks on Dec 29, 2009 @ 01:25 pm|
After years of silk and wooly long johns over-riding my lowrise jeans, I happened upon a secret-weapon answer to the problem of needing extra layers but not wanting the extra bulk at the waistline. Thigh-high socks! I think these type of socks are actually meant for tarty young teens to wear under their school uniform skirts (ha!) but they have become my go-to choice in winter because they're warm and wooly, but only go to the top of my legs without bulking up and over at the waist. Add a pair of panyhose underneath for the most magical combination.
