What are Jeggings?
Jeggings are a blend of denim jeans and leggings — they have the appearance of denim but the comfort of leggings. It’s the best of both worlds; they’re soft and stretchy like leggings, with a wash and fitted silhouette like skinny jeans. These traits make this piece of denim clothing extremely wearable and flattering.
There are many great occasions to wear leggings i.e. going to yoga, the grocery store, on a walk, or when working from home or lounging on the couch. And there are many great occasions to wear regular jeans, like at a concert or a football game.
However, there are other times when you want to wear something a little less casual or athletic than leggings but a little less stiff and restricting than jeans. Those are the times to reach for jeggings. Keep reading to discover the best jeggings for women.

How To Style Jeggings
Styling jeggings is simple because they’re so versatile. Depending on the season and the look you’re going for, there are countless ways to wear this closet staple. Keep chic and comfortable by styling them in one or all of these ways.
With a Chunky Sweater and Boots
The slim-fit silhouette of jeggings is perfect for pairing with tall boots. Create an easy go-to look for fall and winter by slipping on your jeggings, a chunky sweater, and your favorite pair of riding boots or over-the-knee boots. This look can be casual for eating out or shopping, or dressy, for Thanksgiving dinner or a trip to the theater. If you have an oversized sweater, this is a good time to reach for it as the longer length and larger proportion of an oversized fit go great with the fitted silhouette of jeggings.
With a Fitted Tank and Blazer
For a look that is polished and put together without being stiff, pull on your jeggings and pair them with a simple solid tank top and a printed blazer. This look is both classic and trendy and can be worn on a date or in a more casual office setting with a pair of short or tall boots. Dark wash jeggings are perfect for nighttime, and a blazer always looks chic, so you’ll feel put together, warm, and comfortable all at once.
With a T-Shirt and Sneakers
Nothing beats jeans and a t-shirt, or in this case, jeggings and a t-shirt. For a casual outfit that you can turn to without fail, pair your favorite jeggings with a classic tee—solid or graphic. Then, step into sneakers and head out the door. Tie a flannel or a shirt jacket around your waist to layer up if it gets chilly or just to add another element to the outfit.
With a Shirt Dress
During colder months, or whenever you want to wear a dress but have something on your legs, you can still wear your favorite shirt dress by wearing jeggings underneath. Jeggings are lightweight and comfortable enough to layer under shorter dresses, petite tunic tops, and sweaters alike. Slip them on, button up this fun printed shirt dress, and step into a pair of heeled boots for a cute look for a night out. Complete the outfit with a pendant necklace and, voilá, you’re dressed to impress.
With a Denim or Statement Jacket
Wondering how to style denim jacket with jeggings? Jeggings are actually the perfect blank canvas to pair with all of your favorite denim jackets, printed tops, patterned sweaters, and other statement jackets. A dark blue wash or vintage wash goes with everything. So, take advantage of a plethora of outfit options. Pair them with a textured jacket such as this one or a printed one such as this houndstooth shirt jacket. Either of these statement jackets will make the outfit. Simply step into boots or loafers to complete it.
With an Oversized Tee
Oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts are in; Think of them as the top version of the boyfriend jeans; they have a vintage look and appear one or two sizes too big. When styled with fitted jeggings, though, they can create a fun and casual look that’s uber comfortable. Whether you pull out your partner’s band tees from the 80s or buy something new that’s meant to look old, pair your oversized tee with jeggings and athletic shoes when running errands, or with chunky boots and a long cardigan for lunch with friends.
With a Flowy Blouse
The fitted silhouette of jeggings goes well with a flowy blouse that skims over the waistline and hits just above your hips or longer. For a celebratory dinner or a relaxed holiday party, try wearing jeggings with this black smocked sleeve top. The feminine details and flowy silhouette will balance the slim proportions of jeggings just right. Step into heeled boots, stilettos, or kitten heels, and pop in a pair of earrings to finish this special look.
