Combining the sleek silhouette of skinny jeans with the comfy stretch of cotton leggings, “Jeggings” are beginning to sprout up everywhere. Fahionistas such as Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Sienna Miller, & Whitney Port have all been seen sporting the look.

Or you could make a real investment, like with this pair by Paige Premium Denim:

 

“Ok, I’m ready to try them out…but how do I wear them?”

Jeggings really can work for any body shape, and any age; it’s just all in how you style the outfit.

Here’s a few tips for a classic, yet stylish “jegging” look:

  • Balance with bulk on top. This will make the legs appear thinner, by balancing out the thin bottom silhouette with more fabric on top.
  • Accentuate your waist with a belt. It helps break up the fabric, while also showcasing your curves.
  • Try knee-high boots. This is great for someone who still isn’t totally comfortable sporting the whole “look” since the boots help break up the bottom half.
  • LAYER, LAYER, LAYER. Think tanks, more tanks, finished off with a fitted blazer. Totally classic.
  • Always cover the waistband with fabric. Since they’re usually elastic, you’re not going to want to be flashing that off.
  • Keep the intensity up top. A simple pair of jeggings will look great with a fun top, extra accessories, or extra layers.

I, personally, have yet to jump the bandwagon and do not yet own a pair of jeggings. I want to physically try on a pair before I decide for myself whether they’re a “DO” or a “DON’T”. So, let’s see what YOU guys think:

What’s YOUR take on the jeggings trend? Are they a “DO” or a “DON’T”??
