It is a 4 o'clock in the morning.  Jeff is sick again - this time with food poisoning, we think - so I am awake playing nurse and pondering important life questions... Like, for example...

What do you think about "Jeggings"?

They are really an interesting anomaly.  They LOOK like leggings, but they have a denim texture and are complete with butt pockets and a button/zip fly. 

Where do people come up with these things? You'd be surprised though... even my fashionista, "hips don't lie" sister LOVES the jeggings... And so does Paris Hilton - a very "normal" body-type, with very reasonable style. (Right?)

And, while we're at it, can we please talk about American Apparel advertising their jeggings as "unisex"?  Actually, on second thought, I'm not going to go there.

So... Yay or nay?  (And don't worry... I KNOW my booty couldn't handle these... This is a purely hypothetical poll.)

  1. I know that I have a negative bias because there's no way there is a pair of jeggings big enough for my butt. My question: could they possibly be comfortable?? Well, are they, Kathryn?

    I'm all in favor of skinny jeans and I even like leggings on occasion... but I just can't get on board with the jeggings. Although I do like saying jeggings.

  2. Amanda, to clarify, jeggings are not actually made out of denim - just cotton that looks like denim. Can you imagine how miserable actual jean leggings would be?

    And I like saying jeggings too.

  3. Absolutely, NO WAY on the jeggings. Dis.Gusting.

  4. I don't understand. If Jeff was sick, why was he wearing Jeggings? You would think sweatpants would be better.

    On a related note, I bet Jeff looks really good in Jeggings.

  5. Oh, I have to go with no thank you! I've been commenting about similar styles recently and wondering what is going on! But.... I do like the word jeggings. :) Hope Jeff feels better!

  6. WELL.... absolutly NO BODY, and I mean NO Body should wear these terrible things, Kathryn, what on earth are you thinking, girl?? NO WAY!!!Please look in the mirror!!!

  7. Dear Mom, Do we need to have a fight via e's blog? Probably not! :) I LOOOOVE jeggings, and I dont care how fat my ass looks in them, they are comfortable! :) dont knock it til you try it!

  8. so do you wear them like they're leggings or wear them like they're jeans?? b/c I heard someone say the other day that leggings are NOT pants and you should not wear just regular shirts with them that you could wear with any pair of jeans. You need to wear a tunic-y shirt or a dress or something over them. So what abboy jeggings?! how you would you even know what to wear on top! I vote no on the jeggings b/c they're too confusing.

  9. RN Mama has it goin on!!! she said it right!! Kathryn.... read her reply!!
    oh, and by the way, I would not be caught dead in jeggings!!

  10. Well, jeggings are definitely IN in Ireland. As are tights with shirts that barely cover your rear end. I will not be sporting that trend but I did invest in a pair of jeggings.

  11. I saw this article and remembered your Jeggings blog!

  12. Let me just say that in some areas teen guys wearing tight pants is considered a trendy thing to do. The tighter the jeans the more "IN" the guy is. Which is why companies like Am Ap advertise their jeans as unisex. Style depends on where you live, and where I live skinny jeans on guys is the way to go, and jeggings (while I absolutely hate the horrid sound of that name) are the perfect drug for my love of skinny pants. :) P.S. I'm completely straight... and I'm a guy... that happens to like jeggings. Nothing wrong there. :P

  13. That would be an extremely fun conversation for individuals

    fill out a form about yourself and simply how
    much you make a year and see if you're qualified to the free money.
