Something tells me fashion is going full circle, and no doubt by July, skirts and leggings will have collaborated to make the ultimate pair of skreggings!
I walked past Marks & Spencer yesterday (24/2/11) to notice the new treggings in town! Now for all of you that are as confused as I was yesterday, let me fill you in…
Leggings are tight fitting styles that are typically made from a blend of lycra, spandex, nylon, cotton or polyester. They’ve been around practically forever and are usually ankle length but in recent fashion circles leggings can now be longer or shorter (cycle shorts were spotted on the SS10 catwalks).
- Wear leggings underneath short skirts and dresses or with tunic tops for everyday practicality.
Jeggings are fab if you like the look of jeans but prefer the stretch and feel of leggings. They are the perfect cross between leggings and jeans and some even have the same features as a pair of jeans including stitch detail pockets. They’re versatile, comfortable and uber stylish.
- Throw on your jeggings with slouchy jumpers and cosy knits for a relaxed, weekend look.
Treggings are the latest of the ‘legging craze’. They look like trousers with a fit and shape of leggings. Sleek and tailored, treggings are great for work and give you lasting comfort throughout the day.
- Wear treggings in the office with a tailored jacket for that perfect mix of smart and edgy.
