A “jegging” is like a skinny jean on steroids. SUPER skinny!
The jean/legging hybrid looks like a jean, but fits and feels like a legging.
J Brand Jegging
J Brand makes an awesome pair of dark wash jeggings that will carry you into the fall/winter season (on sale right now at Antropologie). I know it’s early to think about fall, but if you’re going to invest in pieces now, best to pick things that will work in the cooler months. The jegging is GREAT with fall boots, especially for the larger calved ladies because there isn’t as much material to tuck in.
For budget fashionistas, check out the pair I bought recently by Fragile (right). These are half the cost of the J Brand jeggings and just as flattering. They cost around 30 dollars.
I bought mine at Off Fifth, but you can also pick them up at Kohls, or Sears (believe it or not!) Of note: the pair from Kohl’s has dark blue stitching, while Sears’ pair has white, more visible stitching.
Silk Kaftan Blouse
I think (if worn correctly) these can be a clever addition to many a wardrobe. If you are worried about how tight the jeggings are and feel a little self-conscious…simply sport em’ with a longer knit/blouse that covers up your hips and cheeks (like Kaftan silk blouse pictured left).
