Introducing Skeggings--The Best Thing To Hit Your Closet Since, Well, Leggings.

September 24, 2013 by Tracey Wallace

It’s almost that time of year when wearing leggings to work is appropriate (with tall black boots–obv!), and what better way to commence leggings season than with an AMAZING new clothing item you’ll wish you thought of first. Skeggings!

Newsflash from xoJane: Skeggings exist, and don’t even to pretend like you don’t know what they are. The skirt has finally met the legging, and the two have turned into one.

A few questions that should be addressed:

Q: How have I never heard of skeggings before?

A: The answer may never be known, especially since it seems as though multiple brands carry them including Soneed, Color of Basic, Cookie 7 and Click. (I know, we’re all still confused. Getting there.) However, YesStyle.com seems to be the official or at least the best skeggings curator out there. And boy, do they have a wide variety. From tight fitting skeggings to pleated skeggings, and nearly everything in between, your skegging collection can be almost as varied as your actual skirt collection, and in as many colors as your leggings one.

Q: I own both skirts and leggings. If I wear them together, isn’t this skeggings?

A: In theory, yes. In actuality, not at all. Covering what many women deem to be the worst part of leggings (the showing-all-of-your-butt-without-much-fabric-between-it-and-the-real-world part) with another skirt that you own just wasn’t enough. Instead, the style obviously needs to come sewn together, because you know, skirts and leggings are the peanut butter and jelly of fashion (too far?). Anyway, skeggings come in at around or under $25, so in the long run, they are much cheaper than your skirt and leggings as a two-not-one combo. Though, you probably won’t get as much wear out of them (Sorry, no skeggings at the wedding. Skirts allowed, though!).

Q: Why do these photos bring up feelings of both disgust and love, in equal proportions, at the exact same time?

Honestly, I do not know. I think skeggings and automatically I’m thinking of crocs, little girl bows in women’s hair and all other fashion and beauty items that tried so hard to be a thing but that thankfully got a big fat “NO” from the style community. But then, I see a picture of skeggings and I’m reminded that Snuggies exist — and for good reason — and my desire for comfortable clothes pretty much makes this a closed-book cased with me siding on giving it two thumbs up.

OK, maybe just one. Tell us what you think in the comments!

Here you go, you can shop 294 skegging options.
