Don't fear the jean legging...

We are in the 3rd fall season of the "jegging". I am personally very excited that they are back again, because as a mom chasing after a toddler, these might be the most comfortable item ever made. You may wonder if they are flattering, or if they are easy to wear. My answer to both of those is yes. Now, they might not be for everyone, but if you are having any hesitation you should try them on and see for yourself.

My friend Annie informed me that Gap was selling them this season. I went in there on Sunday and I was so thrilled at not only the price ($69, ladies!) but they had some decent washes. I think for an item like this, if you are slightly unsure, you can't argue with a $69 price tag. Here are 2 of their washes that I think are pretty good...

classic wash

faded dark wash

Some of you may be blessed with skinny hips and thighs. Me, not so much. I like a longer top with my legging jeans. You know my love of cardigans...

linen cardi, perfect for right now, by Patterson J Kincaid

gorgeous by 12th St. by Cynthia Vincent, also comes in IVORY (yes, please!)

great lightweight cardi by Splendid

And right now there are still a lot of longer tanks or drapey tees to choose from...

love the color, love the pockets. By Patterson J Kincaid

still loving florals...by Ella Moss

very cute belted with some gold jewelry by Eight Sixty
and as for shoes? If I didn't have a toddler, I would be sporting these. It's all about the clog this season!

but let's be realistic, I will probably be doing something more like this...

I think this is a fab boot for the price, $150 by Nine West

so, what is the verdict? Do you still love the "jegging"?


  1. I love it when you do posts on entire outfits! This is a perfect, perfect post in my humble opinion. I have 3 pairs of jeggings from Paige that I just LOVE. At first, I thought I was too old to wear them, but it's all about the proportions on top & shoes, and you've put together some excellent suggestions!!

  2. Loving the green top and 12th St cardi A LOT but am not convinced on the 'jegging'. While I may get around in somewhat stretchy jeans I am still convinced they are merely 'skinny jeans' and not 'jeggings!' ;)

  3. lived in them last year and will again!!!! Love the look of the gap ones and those boots are a GREAT find, thanks Mel!!!!


  4. Although I'm not sure if they'd be considered a jean legging, my favorite skinny jeans are JCrew's toothpick with tons of stretch from last fall. Of all the jeans I've ever owned, they've been the most comfortable and for a super skinny jean, they were super flattering. They recently got a hole though, so I'll be looking to replace them very soon! I'll definitely have to check out GAP!

  5. oh you know i love a good jegging, cant wait to squeeze back into them this fall. tracy anderson here i come!

  6. puh-lease woman!! i am soooo excited to wear anything but BLACK LEGGINGS. this post gets me so excited-fingers crossed by the time it's cool enough to wear them, my tush will fit into them!

  7. I really want to try some but am scared! I have been buying some new black and grey ones for the fall so I think I just need stop being a chicken and try some on!

  8. I am gonna have to check out the gap! I tried the Jeggings at Express, where I buy almost everything, but they just seemed so poorly made and cheap! Thanks for the tip - And I LOVE those clogs, too cute!

  9. Love the jeggings! JBRAND are my favorite but I actually got a cute inexpensive pair by free people. and I also have a super cute psir by citizens of humanity that are the best dark wash.

  10. Yes, I am excited they are in maternity fashion too! I just ordered a pair from Top Shop Maternity- I cannot wait for them to arrive! I am certain I will be living in them until I deliver!

  11. I have been curious about jean jeggings for a while, but haven't try on one. Thanks for the recommendations. Maybe now I've a reason to check them out.

    I am hosting a giveaway of a $50 gift card to the Cheesecake Factory. Hope you will enter for a chance to win.
