Ladies, this one is for you! Today’s blog addresses one of my pet peeves and a clothing item most men find perplexing … jeggings! Love ‘em or hate ‘em and call them what you will – leggings, jeggings, pleather, stretchy pants or stirrups – these are the ultimate comfort item for your bottom half. However many women seem to forget - jeggings are not pants - you must wear a top that covers your behind! Try a long sweater, oversized shirt, tunic, or even a dress. Otherwise it simply looks like you forgot to put pants on. Daily I see this Fashion Faux Pas being repeated. These pants are already sexy enough as they follow your form closely – you need a top that covers your rear to balance the look. Besides – as my mother would have said – why give a free show? Jeggings – are they for you?
Often black or denim blue so go with anything
Shows every ripple, bulge and sag and your underwear
Needs to be washed to return to shape
Collects dust and fluff particles easily, no pockets
Prone to “camel toe” in front
If you’re not sure if what you’re wearing qualifies as pants or jeggings, just for fun you can try this quiz I found on Google images.
Even though I own several jeggings myself, I always make sure to wear a long top, shirt, tunic or sweater. Pass it on!
