For a fun fall look, wear your denim leggings with a shirt dress and a pair of peep-toe booties (or slouch boots during the winter). Another cute look for fall would be pairing jeggings with a 2fer tank dress, a shrug, a cuff bracelet, and some cowboy boots. To look like you borrowed your boyfriends clothes, pair denim leggings with an oversized t-shirt, a boyfriend cardigan, and some sneakers. For Thanksgiving dinner with the family, wear your jeggings with a two-tone tunic, a pair of ballet flats, a bib necklace, and a beret. To dress down a fancy look, wear denim leggings with a sequin mini dress, high-heel shoes, chandelier earrings, and a fringe handbag. This would be a great look for a more casual setting during the holidays and New Year's Eve (in case you're already planning for that). Tell me if you have any more ideas for styling jeggings.

Skinny Jeans + Leggings = Jeggings
Whether you follow the latest fashion trends or not, one thing is clear to anyone who can see: leggings are H.O.T! As a matter of fact, they have been at the very top of every must-have fashion list for the past few years. A pair of solid knit leggings is now considered a basic wardrobe staple. Quite the change from the beginning of this decade, when leggings were spotted few and far between. So does this mean that leggings are here to stay permanently? Possibly. Only time will tell. But right now, they're definitely not going away anytime soon. Another trend that has been popular for the past few years (even though it hasn't blown up to the extent that leggings have) is the skinny jean. Skinny jeans have been on the must-have lists for a while too (I also believe that this is the best thing that's happened to jeans for us shorter girls). Skinny jeans and leggings have a lot in common. They're both super comfortable, both extremely flattering on us vertically challenged ladies, and both look great when paired with tunic tops, shirt dresses, mini dresses, and oversized tees/sweatshirts. They're also both nice for tucking into slouch or over-the-knee boots. So what's the perfect combination of both fabulous trends? Denim leggings (also known as jeggings)! Jeggings are basically the love child of both trends. They look like your typical pair of skinny jeans but feel more like leggings once you put them on. If you need a visual aid, take a look at my little jegging finds below.
