Yay or Nay? Jeggings
Say what? JEGGINGS!
Say that again? JEGGINGS!
When @tammydavid tweeted about The Frisky's 10 Fashion Marriages That Should Have Never Happened, I just had to agree with everything in there! Well, almost. I busted out laughing when I saw Jeggings at #4! Uh-oh! Guilty!
Jeggings may be one of the biggest jokes in the world of fashion (next to the sneaker pump and thong jeans - eep!), but I've come to a point where comfort is just as appealing to me as the iPad is to the gadget guy/girl, the Celine Classic Box Bag is to the bag lover, the Hasselblad is to the fashion photographer, a cosmetics contract is to a model, Fenton/Fallon is to Jenna Lyons...you get my drift. Defensive much? Hahaha!
So yeah, just to let it out, I do wear jeggings, I've got this pair that looks like gray skinny jeans with zippers down the side, so I can open it up a bit at the opening ala Kate Bosworth.
I find that this style slims and elongates my legs. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are super comfortable! And cheap (these are from H&M)! I should have bought seven of this really, one for each day and make it my uniform! Joke! I think one is enough.
What befuddles me though is, are jeggings jeans that look like leggings? Or leggings that look like jeans? Mine are the latter. But whatever. Not that it matters. I just have to say, poor jeggings! So battered and downtrodden, you don't get enough credit, here's a shoutout of love for you!
