7 Eco-Friendly Ways to Dress Up Your Jeggings

1. Don’t mistake them for pants
The jegging may look like a jean and wear like a jean, but despite its trouser-ward aspirations, it will never be a pant. Instead of tight-fitting tops, cropped tanks, and tucked-in blouses, which can make a person look unbalanced in all senses of the word, opt for loose-fitting tunics, minidresses, and boyfriend shirts that skim your curves rather than cleave to them.

2. Choose a dark wash
Like regular denim, the jegging comes in myriad washes, including acid and stonewash. The jegging novice will do well to experiment with a darker wash, however, because they’re more flattering across body types. Bonus: They’re also more versatile and can pull off more-formal occasions.

3. Know thy tailor
Pegged and rolled hems look awkward on jeggings and no one wants to walk around with a few feet of bunched fabric around their ankles. If your jegging is too long in the leg, get it hemmed—or look for petite sizes that run shorter.

    I haven’t been brave enough to try jeggings yet but this article is definitely swaying me. I think I just need a long cardi to make it work.

    Great tips — leggings can be really cute. I’ve been more into the legging jeans trend then knit leggings. I’m happy you included the “leggings are not pants” tip. I’ve seen one too many people trying to pull off tights — the see thru kind — as pants already this fall!

    I am no stranger to leggings, and over the summer my cousins new girlfriend asked me if the jeans I was wearing were jeggings. I openly welcome jeggings into my wardrobe!

    Jeggings are the new sweatpants!
