There's nothing as basic as denim — and we mean that in a good way. It makes up about half our wardrobe and can be easily paired with the other half. But, an #OOTD can start looking stale real fast, especially if we lean on the same cut day in and day out. Whatever the reason for keeping a pair in constant play, it's time to breathe fresh air into our style with a new silhouette. Cue the high-waisted jegging.
Unlike the loose-fitting boyfriend cut we swap in for sweatpants, this silhouette is cozy in its own right and comes with a whole new set of perks: epic stretch, second-skin fit, leg-lengthening effect, and high-waisted coverage (a crop top's dream). It's basically the perfect backdrop for everything. To show you exactly what we mean, we created three different ways to style a pair of these jeggings from American Eagle Outfitters for an interview, brunch with friends, and a date. One piece that pulls triple-duty and makes us look fresh to death every time? Read on to see why this pair deserves a spot in your denim lineup.
