We told our readers back in early July that the hottest denim trend to hit the catwalks and sidewalks this Fall is the “jegging,” a combination of the jean and legging. Fashionistas were skeptical, but as is proven by the latest trends in denim, the jegging is here to stay for awhile. But how do you style this jean + legging hybrid?
According to Ben Taverniti, head denim designer for Hudson Jeans, “The jegging is a fashion essential this season because it provides the comfort of the legging and chic design of the jean. It’s something that is very easy to wear and goes with anything in your cloest. To dress up your new jeggings, wear them with Christian Louboutins or dress them down with a beat up pair of Converse tennis shoes. You can wear them with a tank top or a more dressy top, a canvas bag or a Balenciaga. The jegging gives your look an edge, no matter how you style them.”
I myself was a skeptic, only buying a pair of skinny jeans after they proved they had staying power, I tend to be one who buys classic clothing items that will last several years, not just a season or two. Typically preferring a bootcut, and loving Hudson’s flap pocket designs, which give the backside a bit of a lift, I had to give these jeggings a second look. I spy flap pockets! Maybe I can be converted after all… These will be available from Hudson in mid-September.
