Fashion & Style: By now, I think we all know what jeggings are — denim leggings so fitted they would make Peggy Bundy proud. And here's the craziest part, I am absolutely nuts for them! I was hesitant to try them at first, so I put on my biggest sunglasses and hat and snuck into a Forever 21. The first pair I tried had zippers at the ankles and made me feel like a stuffed sausage, but I made myself buy them for a test drive.
The best way to baby step into jeggings is to first wear them with boots. The heavier shoe on the bottom will balance out the thighs and create a slimming look. Plus it's a genius alternative to that constant struggle to stuff thick jeans into tight boots. After a few nights out with my jeggins/boot combo, I was ready to lose the safety of my bulky footwear and donned a fabulous pair of platform heels. To my delight, I actually looked alright! The giant (and borderline inappropriate) heels I was wearing gave me extra height and length to really elongate my silhouette.
Now, I can't take these dang things off! I wear them with little silk tops and boyfriend jackets at night and with loose fitting v-neck t-shirts and heels during the day. I may be headed for Jeggings Anonymous any day now, but I swear, you won't catch me sitting on the couch eating bon bons anytime soon.
