Not so much: Jeggings
Skinny pants were all over the fall 2009 runways, and I read a few weeks ago on Style.com's Style File blog that in the coming months, jeans are getting even skinnier. As someone who avoids salt the day before she wears skinny jeans (I am completely serious), I can tell you this is not really the greatest news. How much skinnier can skinny jeans get? Apparently, so skinny that they're not actually jeans anymore. Let's do the math: jeans + leggings = jeggings. That's right, jeggings. While you attempt to wrap your head around that one, let's take a look at Topshop, which offers jeggings in several different washes. There's the basic, the capri, or the acid denim, which surprisingly don't look as bad as they sound. However, the worst offender comes courtesy of Urban Outfitters, whose acid wash leggings actually look like a pair of acid-washed jeans from the 80s. It's not the acid wash that bothers me; it's the fact that not only are these leggings supposed to look like something they're not (jeans), they're supposed to look like a specific wash of something they're not (in other words, acid-washed jeans). What's next? Body paint jeans? Okay, on someone besides Lady Gaga? The only positive thing I can say about jeggings is that at least they're probably more comfortable than their conventional alternative, ridiculously tight skinny jeans, which, by the way, might cause nerve damage. I love skinny jeans, and I love leggings, but one must draw the line somewhere, and this is one hybrid that truly freaks me out. Thus, jeggings: not so much.
