Civilization Is Crumbling: “Jeggings” Added To The Oxford English Dictionary

Guys, we have some problems. The list of new words in the 2011 Oxford English Dictionary is out, and not only has “jegging” made the cut, but “mankini” is also now officially an acceptable term. A couple of other disturbing non-fashion words that passed muster? “Cyberbullying,” “sexting,” and “retweet.” It’s not so much that we object to the words entering the dictionary–it’s more that “jegging” and “mankini” being acknowledged by Oxford means that they are real things that are likely going to be around for a long time.

I’m A Jeggings Convert: Thank You, Jessica Simpson

I didn’t understand the point of jeggings until recently. I had assumed they were just super-thin jeans that suffocated the legs. I was not a fan of the trend, but I think I may have been jaded by the early iterations that trend-driven stores sold next to their hosiery. The legwear was so cheap it didn’t even deserve a hanger and was packaged like a pair of tights. I like leggings, but couldn’t bring myself to wear imitation jeans. Good thing I found out I was so wrong about jeggings. And I have Jessica Simpson to thank for this revelation. Keep reading »
