'Jeggings' to take pants fashion by storm
Melbourne, Mar 6 (ANI): After the skinny jean, the latest pants to take the fashion world by storm are the jeggings.
Jegging is a cross between a pair of jeans and leggings, a new season trend that is being adopted across the board and on many a runway.
"I saw a bit of it start to trickle through last winter and thought they were going to be the next big thing because they're much more comfortable than the skinny jeans," the Courier Mail quoted stylist and Kisses boutique owner Rachel Moor-Bryce as saying
"First Alexander McQueen and Balmain had done a great jeans legging and anything Balmain's doing is hot right now," she added.
Moor-Bryce said that the jegging style is a more comfortable alternative to skinny jeans and a more modest and stylish alternative to wearing leggings as pants.
"Women are wearing leggings like they are pants and they are not, so at least the jegging is a legging that is meant to be worn as a pant," she said.
"If you wear them in black or a dark denim it's fine to wear them as a pant but in a lighter wash you'd probably wear them as a legging," she added.
however, Moor-Bryce has admitted that jegging is not a style for everyone.
"I don't think everyone can do every fashion but I think it's one that can be adopted to suit you. It's about proportions, you can do a few tricks and illusions with a wedge heel," she said.
Jeggings are quite often printed with belt loops, pockets, buttons and zips and are designed to look like a super skinny pair of jeans.
While they might be more comfortable than skinny jeans, they give wearers no room to hide.
They are designed to suit all ages when they're styled appropriately, but they do not a good look for chunky legs and won't hide flaws as well as a well-cut pair of jeans. (ANI)
