Trend:how to tame jeggings?

In recent years, the world of denim has evolved to give way to more masculine cuts such as Mom jeans or boyfriend jeans. But the tight-fitting trend is a basic that is constantly revisited with new versions that follow one another. To the delight of addicts of skinny and slim, Anglo-Saxon fashion has launched a new cut of pants:jeggings, a stretch model very similar to jeans. What is this cut of pants halfway between jeans and leggings?How to wear jeggings without making a fashion faux pas?

What are jeggings?

With these English terms, it's not easy to navigate! Brushes get tangled easily between jeggings, leggings, skinny jeans and treggings etc. We immediately take stock of each of these pants to see more clearly:

  • Leggings are a kind of thicker footless tights that will keep you warmer
  • Tretting is ultra-tight pants but in leather or very elastic synthetic material
  • Jeggings are very tight-fitting pants (a kind of leggings) but they look like less thick jeans. Easy to recognize because its pockets and topstitched seams are false. Often they don't even have a zipper. Their material is stretch, halfway between cotton and elastane.

The jeggings hug the curves perfectly. For this reason, round women do not always allow themselves to turn to this cut of pants. What is it really? Yes of course, jeggings are not the best ally of women with generous shapes. If you are not comfortable with your shapes, forget about this type of pants. On the other hand, if you know how to mix fashionable pieces and if you want to try the adventure, you can quite get a trendy look with jeggings when you are round .How to wear jeggings for curvy women?
  • We try to find a cut with less visible pockets on the buttocks so as not to accentuate the shapes
  • Combine it with t-shirts or long blouses to lengthen the silhouette
  • We opt for high heels (always to make the line thinner)

And the jeggings when you're thin? For women with a slender silhouette, jeggings are particularly suitable because they stick to the skin. This type of Kate Moss silhouette can afford to wear their jeggings with a lot of different fashion pieces:long or half-tucked blouse, sneakers or heels, basic t-shirts, etc. Just choose your pieces according to the look you want to achieve.

Do you have a small belly that you want to hide? No problem, just wear your jeggings with a loose fit sweater or a flowing blouse! Either way, your jegging top isn't meant to be seen!

How to wear jeggings?

There are several ways to wear jeggings . You can wear it the way you would wear jeans or leggings.

In winter, you have the choice between the combination of jeggings + long tunics or jeggings + oversized jumper / long t-shirt with a nice long knit or a fitted blazer.

In summer, jeggings are preferable for the evening because they are still quite warm. It can give a little trendy casual style when accompanied by a large t-shirt with a masculine cut or a V-neck and a nice pair of retro sandals.

For this winter 2019/2020 season, if we follow current fashion trends, a casual look with jeggings would ideally consist of the following parts:
  • Studded ankle boots (for a glamorous rock look)
  • Black jeggings (you will find very nice black jeggings at Zara in a high-waisted version) or raw jeggings
  • An oversized jumper
  • An XXL faux fur coat or a long wool coat

For an evening look , we will bet on elegance with a pair of pumps and a rather dark shade of jeggings (raw or black). On the top side, you can pair it with a black top in light veil and play on a transparency effect to add chic to your outfit.

5 mistakes to absolutely avoid with jeggings

Jeggings are an ultra-feminine accessory because they adapt to curves, enhancing them. But be careful not to make a "fashion faux pas" by pairing your jeggings with the wrong fashion pieces. Here are 5 mistakes to absolutely avoid:

Wearing a top that is too tight

The jegging piece is already a piece that is worn very close to the body, it would be in bad taste to adopt a total tight look from head to toe. On the one hand, it could highlight shapes that you do not want to be seen. And on the other hand, it could also quickly seem vulgar.

To be worn in a modern way, jeggings are best worn with loose, flowing tops. The ideal is an oversized sweater or a tunic that will fall on the bottom of the buttocks. We forget the tops that are too short.

Choose printed jeggings

If you want to avoid the "cheap" effect of jeggings, never choose jeggings with animal prints or stripes or flashy colors! While "graou" is trending this year, trust us, it's not made for this style of pant.

Instead, choose a plain model in a raw or light color to be elegant and match your pants easily.

Top tucked into pants

We'll stop you there right now, tucking your top into your tight high-waisted pants hasn't been trendy for a few years! Finally if, if you loosen it slightly then you have the right, but not with jeggings!

As we said above, you're not supposed to see the top of your pants with jeggings.

Wear jeggings with ballet flats

Ballerinas and jeggings don't go together! The ballerina can be a very trendy fashion accessory if it is associated with the right pieces. For a successful look with ballerinas, we will choose pieces like the skater dress or the destroy jeans for example. But be careful, combined with the wrong clothes, you will quickly look like you have worn your grandmother's shoes.

With jeggings, we prefer high heels which will enhance your look.

Wear jeggings with a dress

Tights are more trendy than ever and come in all kinds of versions (feathered, polka dot or fishnet). You can very quickly sublimate a basic little black dress with a pretty pair of tights. On the other hand, wearing jeggings or leggings with a dress will make you look "cheap" and look tacky!

Jeggings are therefore good to go with blouses, sweaters, loose t-shirts but especially not dresses!

In conclusion

Jeggings are a good alternative if you like slims. It is between jeans and leggings but it looks a lot like jeans.

  • We wear jeggings with tunics, XXL sweaters, fitted blazers or blouses
  • Never associate it with tops that are too short or too tight
  • You can wear your jeggings with sneakers, flat boots or high heels, but never with ballet flats
