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…

Ballerina Leggings: Yay Or Nay?

Are designers running out of new conceptual twists for leggings? Never! One of the newer styles to hit the market is this ballerina look that ties around the leg. Designers may not be running low on ideas, but I'm having a hard time conceptualizing where one might actually wear something like this ... besides, you…

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, we wonder…

New Wack Trend: “Unicorn Vom” Pants?

Man, it's been a bad year for pants, hasn't it? Leggings, jeggings, harem styles, the return of acid wash. And then there have been moments when trendsetters have eschewed them altogether. Further proof they're in full-on teenage identity crisis mode? Trend de la Creme points to the latest wave of disturbing styles so brilliantly put…

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…

The Latest Trend You’ll Love To Hate: Tron Leggings

What are "Tron leggings," you ask? According to Trend de la Creme, it's a new style in body-skimming pants that (perhaps inadvertently) mimic the look in futuristic movies (à la "Tron Legacy," which is the sci-fi flick coming out in 2010 based on the '80s classic). Usually black, they feature studded patterns against a dark…

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…
