Found: A Pair Of Jeggings That Are Actually Forgiving--And On Sale
August 19, 2010
Jeggings are here–in a big way–for fall–so my colleague Justine and I tried on a ton of pairs last night and found the perfect (read: most forgiving) pair, these Paige Denim Verdugo jeggings in Sapphire wash ($110.60, from $158). The problem with jeggings is that they show everything–so even though these are the most forgiving around (we both loved them, plus they’re soft), here’s some advice to buying jeggings, so you don’t have to find out the hard way:
1. Get a dark wash–it makes the legs appear longer and thinner–plus it looks cooler tucked into boots.
2. The thicker the fabric, the better–and more forgiving.
3. Order a size up. Jeggings are made to be super tight, so if you feel like Kim Kardashian stuffed into a pair, be nice to yourself and get a roomier size (I did).
