When everyone is talking about black jeggings, it is helpful to know that jeggings is a new word, in the world of fashion, that blends together two old favorites, leggings and jeans, to describe the latest and greatest in fashion for women’s casual wear. Also known as pull-on jeans, jeggings are able to stretch more than leggings and have the sturdiness that is usually accompanied by a good pair of jeans.
Jeggings can be worn under dresses and skirts for a layered look but because black jeggings have the appearance of good looking skinny denim jeans, they are also worn as a tight pair of pants for jogging, which was the original use of these items, or for just plain good looks. Some jeggings come with a simple waistband of elastic while others make sport a faux zipper and pretend pockets to look more like their denim counterparts. Made from polyester, nylon and cotton, these pants have a generous amount of stretch, even though they are definitely a body-hugging article of clothing. Jeggings are easy care and are machine washable.
Jeggings are available from Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Levi's, and Do Denim. These are great places to find not only jeggings but also regular jeans as well. Items such as capris, flared pants and bootcut jeans are always available, along with many other styles and fashions. Black jeggings are a great choice because black is especially slimming and goes well many other colors, especially bright colors like hot pink, turquoise, and lime green.
So, when looking for a great pair of stretch pants to add to a sleek and trim look, try a pair of jeggings. Not only do these pants have a tight but flexible stretch, but some come with tummy tuck stitches that flatten the stomach while also lifting the derriere.
When you are ready for a great pair of black jeggings, be sure to do your denim and jeggings shopping while at Macy’s.
