They are typically footless and made of lycra, nylon, polyester blends, wool or silk and come in many different colors and designs. They can be worn under a skirt or pants for warmth or as a substitute for pants. Leggings were first worn as two separate pieces in the 13th century for protection when horseback riding or warmth.

    Tights are a type of garment that is worn tightly on the body to cover from the waist or neck down for women or girls and are worn instead of stockings. Tights are one piece and usually made of nylon, cotton or lycra. They were first worn by men who were horseback riding and wanted to protect their legs from scratches. Men of high class had tights made for them in silk or fine wool for more comfort. The difference between tights and pantyhose is the thickness, which is defined in denier. If tights are footless they are called leggings.
