Nowadays leggings, jeggings is a fashion statement to those who are really INTO fashion...how many of u knew that there is another type of leggings and jenggings is common rite now and how about treggings???? i think some of u knew bout it but for me its a new fashion term..hahha i just knew it while i was browsing thru debenhams site..
Here i would like to share with u is the difference between those 3...leggings..jeggings and treggings and how to wear and style them.
Leggings are tight fitting styles that are typically made from a blend of lycra, spandex, nylon, cotton or polyester. They’ve been around practically forever and are usually ankle length but in recent fashion circles leggings can now be longer or shorter (cycle shorts were spotted on the SS10 catwalks).
- Wear leggings underneath short skirts and dresses or with tunic tops for everyday practicality.
Jeggings are fab if you like the look of jeans but prefer the stretch and feel of leggings. They are the perfect cross between leggings and jeans and some even have the same features as a pair of jeans including stitch detail pockets. They’re versatile, comfortable and uber stylish.
- Throw on your jeggings with slouchy jumpers and cosy knits for a relaxed, weekend look.
Treggings are the latest of the ‘legging craze’. They look like trousers with a fit and shape of leggings. Sleek and tailored, treggings are great for work and give you lasting comfort throughout the day.
- Wear treggings in the office with a tailored jacket for that perfect mix of smart and edgy.
note : honestly i just dun have any guts to wear it coz i think it doesn't suit me i guess, but i will try to dress it accordingly with long shirt..btw i just bought 2 leggings from Cotton On for a start ;P
