Twice as nice

Are they jeans? Are they leggings? They're jeggings! With skinny jeans and leggings both enjoying so much popularity, the invention of this wonder hybrid was inevitable. And, this fun garment is rocking the scenes around the globe.

What are jeggings, exactly?

They're denim leggings, or super-skinny jeans that look and are worn like leggings. They're a slimmer fit than your 'normal' skinny jeans, and have the same silhouette-emphasising effect as a pair of tights, and since they're made of denim, you don't have to worry about covering your rear end.

How do I wear them?

In many different ways! You can pair them with tunics, bubble tops or shirt-dresses as you would a pair of tights, accessorizing with broad belts, beads, scarves, as you see fit. Or you could go down the jeans route by teaming up with comfortable tees and cute tops. Experiment and see what works for you. The only thing you have to remember is that it has to be comfortable.

The last word

It's always better to start simple, then amp up the look as you get more used to it. Try some pairs in basic, dark monochromes before you go nuts with the colours and embellishments.

Even though these are a runaway trend, as are skinnies and leggings, if you don't feel comfortable in them, go without. After all, there's always harem pants!
