All About Jeggings

_
with 5 Comments

Normally, I dig hybrids.

Hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius ones that actually stop when you step on the brakes.
S'mores.
Monstrous Mozzarella Stick Goldfish Crackers.
Napoleon Dynamite's beloved liger.

But in my book, some hybrids simply do not work.
Milk and Pepsi (sorry Laverne).
The Snuggie.
Spidey.

There is something magical that happens when you combine two relatively awesome things to create something that is even awesomer. Case in point - the jegging.

The jean + legging hybrid - [aka jeggings] take skinny jeans a slimming step further. Comfy as leggings, but with a bit more substance and stretch. They look like skinny jeans, but give you an even slicker silhouette, without the pinching and the pain.

Although I am not a fan of the cutesy name and the effort of fashion marketers to create a new one-word frenzy, I still like the look, the style and the ease that they provide. I prefer the term denim leggings like these BDG Denim Leggings pictured above from Urban Outfitters for $39.

I also prefer wearing them when I have a bit more volume on top, i.e. a flowy dress, tunic or boyfriend blazer.

Some will think this trend works, while others will classify them as a hotter mess than Spidey.

One warning for those who dig it...

Beware of the dreaded jeggamel toe.
