Sometimes we can feel a bit caught out with new words especially these days in fashion people just love to combine old words to make new ones. So the first time a friend mentioned jeggings to me I thought perhaps they had drunk a gin and tonic too many, and were trying to say leggings. Being a polite person I didn't correct my friend, which was just as well considering I was not on top of the latest fashion invented words.
Jeggings are half jeans and half leggings. This doesn't mean literally half in half but the fabric is stretchy like leggings but the look
is typically an indigo jean look. The look has been fondly embraced by the likes of Beyonce, Mischa Barton and Pixie Geldof. People who are not so aware of the fashion writers' reinvented words are just calling these denim leggings, which is a lot more obvious as to what you could expect from them. But for those of who you want to feel you know the fashion lingo, jeggings are the most trendy description for the jeans leggings combo. In the same way as you may have known about "shants" and "shresses", which for the less fashionable amongst us are sheer pants and sheer dresses.
Jeggings have a big following, and have been termed by some as the most important fashion revolution of the 21st century. The reason for this as because they are so much more comfortable than normal skin tight jeans, and have the hip and sexy look of jeans without the lack of comfort. Some of the jeggings available to buy have nice finishes around the ankles which strengthen the jean look of the jeggings. Some others maybe look a bit scrunched up around the ends which can look sweet and authentic at the same time.
There are many varieties in finishes and colours but you will want to buy jeggings that look sleek and slinky and flattering. They can be teamed up with a loose fitting party top and summer sandals for a relaxed trendy look. Jeggings also look fabulous with tunic dresses. Some of the fashionable tunic dresses have animal prints, some with simple stylish designs and others with stars or hearts. There are also some gorgeous sleeveless tunic dresses for summer that look super cool with jeggings.
Talking about pairing your jeggings off with an animal tunic top or dress, maybe you need to talk about wearing a "tunimal" with our jeggings? Even some pregnant ladies are opting for jeggings as they are so comfortable and fit naturally with longer flowing garments, so making them suitable for maternity wear also.
When choosing your jeggings, the most flexible and trendy ones are a gorgeous indigo blue. You should look for nice contrast stitching, a good quality stretchy material, with a skinny fit. The waist should be firmly elasticated with high quality for comfort capri leggings
and style. Remember that the vast majority of people need to wear a high of some sort with jeggings to carry off this look in the best way.
