Debate This: 10 Reasons Jeggings Are Awesome (And 10 Reasons They’re Not)

Jeggings, the love child of jeans and leggings, are a huge point of contention in the fashion world. Some people think they’re the best thing to happen to denim since the advent of the dark wash boot cut. Others find them more offensive than mom jeans, acid wash skinny jeans, and men’s jean shorts combined.

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…

The Worst Fashion Trends Of 2010

Single? Not sure why? Blame your closet. We haven’t exactly been shy about expressing our fashion preference when it comes to the opposite sex—I recently opined about the horrors of message tees, turtlenecks, and khakis on men, and male dating expert Abraham Lloyd weighed in the horrors of baby doll dresses and jeggings on wome… / December 30, 2010

Tim Gunn And Conan O’Brien On The Nature Of Jeggings

“Project Runway” host Tim Gunn is pretty much our gay spirit dad — and what he says goes. Especially when it comes to the debatable denim-vention, The Jegging. In this clip from “Conan,” Conan O’Brien comes out on Team Jeggings while Tim is (rightfully) on the jeggings fence. And don’t even get them started…

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…

What The Hell Are “Treggings”?

There’s leggings. There’s jeggings. So what the hell are “treggings”? It belies my maturity level when my first guess was “triceratops leggings.” But no, treggings are a cross between leggings and trousers. A hybrid, if you will. Treggings are formfitting from the thighs to the legs, but are more structured on top and often have…

Should Some People Not Wear Shorts?

“Put some pants on!” this ad in the window of a Gap store declares. “Because we can’t all look good in shorts.” The provocative ad has inspired a controversy. The Huffington Post wonders if it’s “Offensive Or Clever.” The woman who took the photo of the debatable ad is journalist Stephanie Marcus. “Another day, another…

Worse Than Jeggings: Jean-Printed Gym Leggings

Jeggings just got some competition in the “what’s fuglier?” contest. Behold Stella McCartney’s “denim printed” leggings. They’re part of her line for Adidas, so we assume the idea is that you wear these to the gym? Really?

To get more specific, the description says that these are actually tights, but since they’re footless,…

Spring Style: Jeggings And Harem Pants Are Here To Stay

It looks like some of the most criticized trends of fall—jeggings and harem pants—are sticking around this spring for another go. Browsing through new merchandise on some of our favorite retailers, we noticed that these styles were widely available, and, in some cases, more prevalent than before. As for harem pants, we assume that Alexander

Jeggings Make Their Way Into the Dictionary, Really

As the hours of 2009 slip away, end-of-year lists are clogging up the internet, and everyone’s become nostalgic about the end of another decade. The year has seen some crazy trends, especially the obsession with leggings in all forms. Though we’ve poked fun at mashing two words together to create a new term for crazy…

What In The World Are Sheggings?

Combination clothes are nothing new. After all, jeggings have officially become a thing, we disclosed our love for bleggings, and shooties are all over department stores. Don’t know what those are? Here’s a quick refresher. Jeggings are jean leggings, bleggings are black leather leggings, and shooties are shoe booties, but that’s only the beginning. We’ve…

What Are Bleggings, Why Are Celebs Wearing Them & Why Do We Kind Of Love?

We thought jeggings were the last frontier in the leggings craze, not to mention the downward turn in a persistent fash “moment” that simply refuses to end. That is, until, we spotted these bleggings (black leather leggings) on Ashlee SImpson in NYC today (she was guesting on Alexa Chung’s show). Turns out, the trend we…

It’s no longer enough to wear a pair of shoes, a shirt, or a skirt. No, fashion has gotten so much more complicated. Now there are articles with names like shooties (pictured) and jeggings, because combination clothes are so hot right now. What began with the skort back in the ’60s has become a full-o…

Quick Pic: Whitney Port Loves Her Some Jeggings

Whitney Port is the bravest girl we know. She is the first person we’ve seen try the jean-legging combo. While she’s thin enough that they don’t look bad, we wonder if they’re cutting off her circulation. [LA, 5/19/09]…
