If you work in an office and the dress code is office casual is ok ok to wear jeans and/ or leggings.

I would also live to know your age and if you have ever worked in an office.

I will update in a couple minutes why I asked

I'm 27 and have never worked in an office but I wouldn't wear jeans or leggings unless I was explicitly told that I could. Office casual to me says slacks/dress pants.

No, you wear jeans or leggings (unless pregnant) and you can go home. I am 24 and my life is office work.im an IT and my dads assistant at his company sometimes.

Leggings yes with a pair of heels and a long flowing blouse maybe even a long sweater in the winter. Jeans maybe depending on the style. I'm 26 and yes I have.

Anything is fine because I don't entertain society mumbo jumbo. Pure crap. I dress very nicely and look professional either way.

I am 34. My office is business casual.  I wear both jeans and leggings to work when I want to.  If I'm wearing jeans they are usually a dark rinse and I wear them tucked into boots.  If I am wearing leggings it is under a dress or tunic length top.  

I've seen other women in positions senior to mine who dress similarly.  Jeans/leggings is a basic staple, like "skirt".  There are skirts that are work appropriate and skirts that aren't.
