In 2008, fashion bloggers posted that skinny jeans were out and gratefully posting pictures of wide-legged jeans. The flair leg is definitely more attractive on most figures, but the predictions were wrong. Rather than reject skinny jeans, the fashion industry has embraced them to the extreme—introducing jeggings. Jeggings—that cross between leggings and jeans—are not attractive on most people. If you are Barbie—long, skinny legs—or under the age of 12, they might look good on you.
If you want to wear jeggings, make sure they fit right. They should be just long enough to reach the ankle without bunching up around your foot. They look best with a long, slightly loose shirt—a tunic or sweater that comes to the hips, and low heels. If you wear them with a short, tight shirt and totally flat shoes, you will just look like you are on the way to a dance class in your leotard.
Make sure they are thick enough to cover your underwear. Show off your shape, but leave whatever is under it to the imagination. Panty lines are unattractive! Regardless of the recent tendency to let it all hang out, underwear should really be “under there.” Ask any ten guys if they like to see bra straps showing, and you will find that most prefer them hidden. They favor a little mystique in their women. Women should look good without letting the world see how it is achieved.
Jeggings are nice for winter, because they can be worn with long-sleeve shirts and still look good. Then again, why not just wear long underwear? Because jeggings are more attractive, that’s why! Next time you are out shopping, why not try on a pair and see how they look? You just might like them!
