I recently moved from Hawaii to Arizona, and am having winter wardrobe issues. (First world problems, right?)

I love stretch jeans, but they aren't enough to keep my legs warm. Is there something similar (not thick or baggy) that will warm me up?

Something good for temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s would be nice.
Any suggestions appreciated!

Fleece lined leggings? Satin long johns or a pair of pantyhose under the jeans?

I say tough it out for a while, and you will acclimate. 40's-60's isn't really that cold. Let yourself get used to it.

I dress in layers on top if I'm going to be outside & can't predict if it will be colder or if the sun will be out & it will warm up....but that is harder to do on the legs...without a bulky appearance with tight jeans, leggings or jeggings. It wouldn't be a fashionably streamlined look...or very comfortable to me. 50s & 60s is still ok for skirts IMO with tights...... those temperatures aren't worth it tho......& everything will feel like long johns like you're ready to ski........ Then when you go indoors...you will be sweating.......because you can't shed lower layers as easily as upper layers.

Try a longer tunic style sweater paired with your jeggings...& a pair of warm boots..... (like uggs)......to help......& a sweater can be easily taken off.

Try to find some 1980s leg warmers or some longer socks that go over mid thigh, wear them to sleep but wear fleecy leggings (2 even) during the day, you can even wear them to sleep.

I bought two pairs of these fleece leggings a while back and they keep my legs very cozy. They are stretchy and not bulky, but still warm. You can find this brand for sale on other websites... might find a better price. I got mine from Kohls.

Thanks. I have some fleece leggings, but they're not warm enough alone and I hadn't thought of layering them.

Last time I had legwarmers was the '80s. Wore them hiking, then to bed a few weeks later. Shoulda washed them, wound up with a terrible case of poison oak around both knees. Maybe I could give them another chance, there are lots of options these days. And I have my own washer now, no more pike of laundry waiting to go to the laundromat.

Wear socks. I know if my feet are cold, I’m cold. My ankles get cold, I’m cold. And for some reason people seem to not wear socks at all.

These are very cozy for keeping feet/ankles warm around the house. I got a pair last year and they are holding up really well. They are lined with fleece, so they are very soft inside, not scratchy. The company employs women in Tibet, who make these by hand, and donates to social causes there as well. Tibetan Slipper Socks
