Ask anyone in the fashion world about jeggings, and you’ll undoubtedly be met with a scoff. The comfy basic (yep, we’re going there!) caught a bum rap for trying to hybridize what is essentially a pair of sweatpants with your trusty blue jean — and, while some iterations failed miserably, we keep finding respectable (not to mention, weekend morning-ready) options hiding right in plain sight.
But, if you’re still not sure how to wear a pair of jeggings, follow our golden rule: If they’re just a pair of leggings with a denim-look print (non-functioning pockets are a dead giveaway), treat them as such and be sure to pair them with a tunic or a hip-length blazer. But, if you find a pair on the other side of the spectrum, feel free to wear them as you would any other pair of classic jeans.
And the fact that they’re way more comfortable? That can be our little secret. Your new brunch attire, right this way.
