Daddy took the girls shopping on an emergency jeans run this afternoon. Jeans we bought in August are suddenly too short. They came home with jeggings- I've never heard of them before. threy are stretchy combination of leggings and jeans. I think they are nasty- skin tight. DH called from shopping asking how I felt about tight jeans and I thought he was talking about just that- slim jeans so i said OK. Well - these knocked my socks off. The strange thing is DD1 is the one who really begged for them and she is meatier than her downright skinny sister who does not like them!!! Skinny sister likes roomy clothes like yoga pants with elastic waists and knit material. But she does have some sensory issues so I can understand it.

How do you feel about these jeggings? Are they in fashion where you live?

They are everywhere around here. My daughter can only wear them with a shirt long enough to cover her behind.

Years ago when my DD was that age, she was so slender we had a tough time finding jeans so she mostly wore leggings. Easy and comfy. I guess I'd think the same about jeggings. Like most things, how they look depends a lot on the rest of the outfit. In and of themselves I don't see an issue.

They are fine if the girl wears a large, blousy top, long cardigan, or T-shirt with another shirt tied around the waist over them and boots. At least that's how they wear them here.

Not with a T-shirt like real jeans.

Our high school banned leggings as pants.

Our school has also recently banned jeggings and tights as pants.

If I am thinking of the right thing (I'm not quite sure how jeggings are different than leggings) girls in my area only wear them under dresses or with very, very long shirts or sweaters never as "just pants" with a regular top.
To clarify, I was referring to high school age girls, who tend to wear things skin tight.

The younger girls & tweens wear similar things but they definitely are not skin tight, and still usually they were long tops over them

I'm not really sure that I've ever seen actual "jeggings" (now that posters have shown some pictures) as I have never seen any waist bands or the tops that actually look like jeans. Frankly they look odd to me. Sort of like those pajama jeans that they try to sell to older women too lazy to get dressed in the morning.

Germaine, the jeggings are simply leggings that are designed to be/look like jeans. This is one example: http://m.macys.com/shop/product/levi...iewsTabContent

People here are making it sound like there are see through jeggings and I've never seen those before. I do agree with a tunic, long shirt or whatever covering the behind for leggings as they tend to be very thin material. Jeggings are different in that regard.

My 6 y.o. daughter does wear jeggings, but she's also tiny waisted that a lot of jeans don't fit her right. She loves it and said they keep her legs warmer than her regular jeans.

Maybe my daughter is committing some sort of fashion crime, but all she wears is leggings as pants...
