Everyday style with jeggings for women
They may have seemed like a fad when they first appeared – but jeggings are definitely here to stay! Half jeans, half leggings, these tight-fitting garments are a firm favourite for thousands of women. They have all the comfort of a pair of leggings, but the jean detailing means they look smarter and more interesting and are ideal for building an outfit. For a casual look, wear them with a loose T-shirt in summer or, in the winter, a thick, oversized knit jumper. Slip on your favourite pair of fashionable trainers to go with them. Jeggings look wonderful with statement trainers that are bigger than your average sneaker. For a bold retro look, go for hi-tops, or keep it modern with big, chunky sports shoes.
Choosing the right pair of jeggings
Jeggings for women should fit you like a pair of leggings, so make sure that they are exactly the right size. If they're baggy around the knees, you'll inevitably look sloppy! There are many colours available. Women who are self-conscious of their bottom half should remember that darker colours are generally more slimming. If you want to downplay your hips and thighs, go for black or dark indigo. On the other hand, if you'd rather make a feature of your legs, choose a light blue that will draw the eye down. Finally, you'll find that some jeggings are firmer and more supportive than others. Choose a firming pair with plenty of uplift if you want a perkier bum!
How to dress up a pair of jeggings to look your best
When you're wearing jeggings for women, remember that they are skin-tight. That means visible underwear lines are a big no-no, so choose underwear that will be completely invisible underneath. You might want to go for a thong, which ensures totally smooth lines around your hips and bum. Feel free to play with volume. You're wearing tight clothes on the bottom, so consider going big and baggy on your top half. That doesn't mean sloppy, though. Why not pick up a top or jumper with an off-the-shoulder detail? This will keep you looking feminine and cute, without going skin-tight all over. These are also great pants for a pair of long, statement boots that you want to show off. They'll look equally good with heeled boots as flats, for an eye-catching winter style.
