Jeggings & Leggings

Hey Girl Hey!
 So as I was lying in bed last night I thought to myself I started this blog as a fashion blog, So I should try to somewhat keep it that way. My first followers followed me so that they could know how to wear the latest trends & I want to keep blogging for them in that way! I am a woman of many traits so I want to incorporate all my wonderful traits into my blog! I am hoping to start a new blog hop for all my wonderful fashion lovers but I still need to find a wonderful blog who is willing to partner up with me (keeping my fingers crosses).
Fall has officially hit in Minnesota, which means that it’s time to start layering your clothes girlfriend!  Today I will be talking about your bottom half, and how to keep it covered and cute! There are so many options for us ladies nowadays Jeans, Jeggings, leggings, tights. But how do you know which one to you wear with what! When leggings first came out I was in seventh grade and we wore them under our jean mini-skirts now even my grandma wears leggings! With all these fabulous options out there we all need to know how to appropriately wear them. 

Jeggings
What is a Jegging? A jegging is a legging that is made to look like a tight skinny jean.  There are also denim Jeggings (My personal Favorite). They are Jeans that are made with the stretch of a legging (perfection I know).  Pajama pants are not jeggings and shouldn’t even be allowed, just needed to throw that out there.
How do you wear jeggins correctly?
1.)    If you plan on wearing a jegging that is more of a cotton blend than it is denim blend or looks like a legging avoid wearing/pairing them with anything that hits above your butt (don’t wear them like normal skinnies).  If you wear them with a regular top that hits your hips, they are most likely going to show all your imperfections and do nothing to falter your figure. Plus we don’t want your panty line showing! When wearing Jeggings that fit and feel like leggings pair them with longer flowy tops such as tunics, high-low blouses and long sweaters.

2.)    If you plan on wearing a jegging that is more of a denim blend, you will most likely be able to wear a shorter top with it. Just make sure that it’s not a super duper tight blouse. Jeggings that have pockets give structure to you booty, which is a good thing in case you’re wondering. When wearing a denim blend jegging you can pair a lot of things with them. One of my favorite ways to wear them is with a tucked in blouse, cute belt, statement necklace and boots. But like I said early you can wear them with almost anything, think of them as a comfy skinny!

Im wearing a blouse from herbergers bought last year,  Jeggings from target (recent), Naughty Monkey , Bullet boots  (here) & (here) 


We can get a little silly! Christa's Whole outfit is from  (here)
Im not faking it, she literally made me laugh this hard!

She fabulous, and those boots, oh my!
Fun Fact- Jeggings look great with almost every shoe! You can pair them with flats, loafers, boots and sandals. If you’re feeling sexy rock them with a great pair of heels, your legs will instantly look longer.

Leggings
What is a legging? Well I don’t know how to describe them but they have been a trend for years now so I’m sure you all know what they are by now if not here’s a picture.
I want to start by saying any women no matter the age can wear leggings, you just need to know how to style them correctly!
How to wear leggings correctly!
1.)    Layer! Leggings are not pants therefore they should not be worn like pants. The first rule in wearing legging correctly is making sure your top layer is long enough! Basically unless your wear a skirt, your first layer should hit at least four inches (if not more) below your butt! That means you should always wear your leggings with a longer top, tunic, shirt dress, sweater, cardi dress or skirt.  Please don’t wear them with anything that hits below the knee either.
2.)    See through =NO NO- If Any part of your leggings are see through or sheer especially on your butt do not wear them, that pair belongs in the garbage or meant to be slept it!
3.)    Skirt & Boots- When wearing a short skirt with leggings always make sure to wear the outfit with boots!
4.)    Wear the correct shoes- Leggings look great with boots, ballet flats and sandals. The look horrendous with tennis shoes and the wrong pair heels!
5.)    Be creative but classy- Leggings are meant to be fun, accessorize them! Get creative when styling them but remember they should be looked at as tights not pants!

She did a great job pairing this shirt-dress with a pair of leggings and boots.

Arent these leggings breathe taking?

What a great outfit! 

I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! I'm hoping it warms up here soon since it snowed yesterday!

    1. Have you tried jeggings from Poland? I know they are maybe less popular as for some reason Poland seems to be forgotten country, but have a look on these: http://www.hosiery.uk.com/leggings/basbleu-jeggings-blanka-short-200-denier.html
