Skinny jeans and leggings have been popular in fashion, off and on, for years. Who would have thought of combining the two types of pants together tp create what is now known as “Jeggings”. You’ve probably seen the latest celebrities wear these fashionable pants such as singers, Beyonce, Ciara and Rihanna, as well as the actress Sienna Miller and many of the top supermodels. Jeggings have become so popular with many others because they’re a lot more comfortable and practical than the typical skin-tight jeans. The reason is its stretchable synthetic material, or lycra, that makes it wearable. I’ve owned a few pairs of jeggings, and it’s amazing how much they look like real denim material. Jeggings will stretch out for maximum comfort and contour the lower half of the body very nicely. You might even say that jeggings are miracle workers.
However, to give it the correct illusion for a shapely figure when wearing jeggings, it is extremely important to have the right types of tops, sweaters, accessories and footwear to go with it. Otherwise, wearing something unflattering may destroy any illusion you had before. Now you can find the best fashion tips for wearing jeggings, that will make you look like a real fashionista. Here are some great ideas on the “dos” and strong advice on the “don’ts” of jeggings. Now let’s found out how to truly be stylish and comfortable, while at the same time wear the latest fashion trend of jeans and leggings that equal jeggings.
The Fashion “Dos” for Jeggings
It’s very important to buy the right kind of jeggings that suit your body type. If you are short in height, then petite sizes will be appropriate. The same applies for the tall sizes to buy appropriately for your height. If you buy one one in a regular size it may be too long for petites, where you will have 2 or more feet of extra jeggings at the bottom, or the opposite for the tall sizes by having high-water bottom hems reaching at mid-calf.
Next, be sure to pick a dark color, such as black or dark indigo, that has slightly heavier fabric, with a lot of stretch in the material. Even though these pants come in a variety of finishes and colors it is best to buy the ones in the recommended colors. That a way you’ll look sleeker and more flattering. Also, be sure to look for jeggings with a waist band, espeically if you want to wear them as pants, rather than the traditional leggings style.
For casual wear during the day less is always more. You can wear a big t-shirt or tunic dress or other long tops in solids or sparkling textures or bold prints. The two latter suggestions give it added flair to the jeggings. Flats, sandals or sneakers are a good choice of footwear during the daytime. Dependent on the season, you can wear a scarf as an accessory. Boots and uggs are also great choices of footwear with jeggings. For the evening you can go all out with oversized cardigans, sheer tank tops, platform pump shoes, heels, and other accessories such as belts, scarves, bangle bracelets, and long necklaces.
The Fashion “Don’ts” for Jeggings
For the most part anything goes with jeggings. One of the considered faux pas is to wear them like pants. This means tucking in a shirt into the jeggings. That wouldn’t work very well, because of its tightness. Also, lines from the garment would be obvious. Some bloggers have stated it’s alright to wear them as pants, but don’t let the bottom be exposed like you would with regular jeans or other pants. Wearing a long t-shirt or other long tops are your best bet with jeggings. However, if you have a long torso you need to wear tops that are above the waist to give the illusion of longer legs. Its likely jeggings would not be suitable for that body type.
That’s all there is to it. The simpliest advice given for shopping for and how to wear jeggings. One thing is certain, once you’ve owned a pair of jeggings it will be hard to go back to ordinary jeans or pants. They truly are comfortable.
