Denim leggings provide the best of both worlds: the look of skinny jeans with the stretch of leggings.
This is a trend that’s popped up everywhere from Urban Outfitters to Gap to H&M to Walmart. It’s found across all price points and at stores that carry diverse styles.
Because they’re a fusion of denim and leggings, some call them “jeggings,” and they adhere to different rules than leggings or denim.
I think the best kind are a dark denim color in a five-pocket style.
Here are some dos and don’ts: Do wear them with a loose shirt or tunic. The generous fabric of the top will offset the skinny cut of the denim leggings.
Don’t wear a shirt that is low cut or tight to avoid looking like you raided Catwoman’s closet.
Do wear them with a t-shirt or button up shirt.
Do try tucking in a looser-fitting shirt. Do use your discretion on whether or not it looks good that way.
Jean leggings are meant to be worn tight, but make sure they’re not too tight: it shouldn’t cut in too much on the sides, and it should hit you at a comfortable place in the stride.
Denim leggings enable you to try out other trends that would be hard to find a match for. For example, an oversized sweater that is too short to wear with leggings.
