Tight from the waist to the leg, jeggings are a favorite go-to. They are typically made of super-soft and stretchy fabric and come in a wide range of colors. They're incredibly easy to style, which makes them perfect for those lazy days you'd preferably wear leggings, but need to dress up. A cute cami, jacket, and boots or a simple loose knit sweater complement them very well!
Jeggings made their grand entrance back in 2010, secured a spot in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2011, and are still a hot ticket item today for women of all ages and sizes. While they're not the ideal formal attire, jeggings are great for work, play, lounging and of course, nights out on the town!
What are Jeggings?
Jeggings are leggings, made with a denim-like design and material. While the style was initially created with legging fabric designed liked jeans, now the word refers to very stretchy jeans. They've become a staple in pretty much every woman's wardrobe as they're ultra-comfortable, and look virtually identical to a pair of jeans. If wearing leggings as pants is wrong then wear pants as leggings…know as the jegging!
What's the difference between Jeggings and Jeans?
Jeggings were the fashion world's response to the wildly popular skinny jeans. Because they were so difficult to slip on, and the fit was so restrictive, designers began utilizing stretchier fabrics. Jeggings are usually made of a type of cotton with a high percentage of elastane or spandex. Depending on the style, they may not have pockets and have a pull-on waistband instead of a zipper.
You can style them exactly as you would a regular pair of jeans. Pair them with high heels, a blouse, and a blazer for a chic work look, or a pair of trainers and your favorite top for the weekends!
Jeggings are also super forgiving to your silhouette, accentuating all of your gorgeous curves, and smoothing out those pesky trouble areas.
Like jeans, jeggings come in a wide variety of colors and styles. These pants are comfortable, give just the right amount of stretch, and hold their shape. They have a super slim look, and are the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe!
