Jeggings - A Must Have Cousin Of Jeans In 2011

Be it summers or fall, easy to dress up & easy to dress down, comfortable & classy, Jeggings are the new hot fashion trend. An amalgamation of jeans and legging, jeggings are very versatile and can be worn with a shirt, blouse or a sleeveless top.

Jeggings are more stretchable to make them comfortable, being made with a higher percent of lycra or spandex than normal jeans are. They are also much softer and less stiff than usual jeans, so you don’t have to worry that you’ll be poked and prodded by the figure-hugging fabric.

The versatility of jeggings allows you to dress them up with a tunic and sexy heels for date night or allows you to go casual with a t-shirt and ballet flats for weekend wear. So if you like the look of skinny jeans but want a little more comfort, then the latest curve hugging denim trend is sure to show off your full figure in all the right places making it a must-have piece for your wardrobe.

If you are short, wear them with platform heels. Those few inches will really elongate the legs. And if you are curvy then the most flattering way for curvy girls to rock them is by wearing a flowy tunic top that floats away from the body. Consider belting the tunic at your waist to create an hourglass shape.

You can get jeggings in a variety of denim looks such as a dark wash finish, medium sandblast or black along with detailing you would find on your favorite jeans such as five-pocket styling and contrast stitching along the seams for accenting. Some are actual pull on pants with an elastic waist band, while others have an actual button fly and zipper.
The very basic and simple way of wearing jeggings to pair it with a long shirt and a wedge. This look maybe very casual and simple but this is look will guarantee you not to create a fashion faux pas. The trick to make this look glam is to accessorize. You may choose to use bulky fashion jewelry. But if you prefer make it not so loud, a pair of stun earring, pearl or diamonds, will do.

To create a trendy look, pair the jeggings with a midriff or tank top. This is a very daring look and should be done consciously and cautiously. Pair with a slip on high heels, loop earrings, bangles and long necklace.
