Fall 2010 Fashion Trend: Jeggings

Tacky is now trendy.

Sienna wears them to the grocery store, Whitney Port wears them at Diane Von Furstenberg and Kate Bosworth wears them out with her boyfriend. Jeggings, much like their once-ugly-now-trendy footwear sister, clogs, have evolved from an item people who care about fashion used to scoff at to an item people who care about fashion MUST own.

For those of you who don’t know: Leggings+Jeans= Jeggings. Even Wikipedia seems to have acknowledged their presence. It’s one of this season’s hottest trends, one that has been embraced by celebrity and ordinary clientele alike.

There’s simply one golden rule when donning these slinkies: Always keep your backside covered. We don’t care if you look like Gisele from behind, wearing jeggings with a tucked in shirt is like wearing leggings with a tucked in shirt (now you get the picture). It is simply not a good look. However, you should check out other, non-denim, versions of the trend- including prints, military-inspired, and gray versions.
