Jeggings, also known as legging jeans, are hard enough to pull off when you’re not pregnant. But add a swelling belly, ever-widening hips and thighs and the virtual impossibility of wearing any shoe with a heel and working a pair of jeggings seems even more unattainable.
But with lots of stores already rolling out their fall collections, it looks like jeggings are here to stay, and yes, that includes maternity jeggings for all you moms-to-be. So you can either resist the trend with all your might or take a few style cues from us, invest in the pieces below and make them work for your pregnant body.
If you’re brave enough to wear a pair of maternity jeggings, here’s how to do it:
Start with a quality pair of maternity jeggings ($130), like these by 7 For All Mankind. They’re thick and substantial, but they have lots of stretch so you don’t feel constricted.
Pair your maternity jeggings with a long tunic top ($45) that not only covers the belly panel on your jeans, but also covers your tush.
Because maternity jeggings are so fitted, they’re a great complement to trendy over-the-knee boots ($150) because they’re a cinch to tuck.
