Admittedly I’m a trendwhore. If it’s new and exciting chances are I’ve taken it for a test drive in my closet. Boyfriend jeans? Check. Strong Shoulders? Check. I even own more than one pair of harem pants. Fashion should be fun, and trends are like a booster shot for a tired wardrobe.

Jeggings took a little time to warm up to. The first incarnations I saw had a trompe l’oiel vibe that was not flattering at all.

no, no, a thousand times no

These are not a good look…

But I’ve officially been converted, thanks to an unlikely post-Christmas sale find a Charlotte Russe.

It’s insane how much joy I’ve derived from one pair of pants. (Well now it’s two, as I immediately went back to purchase another pair in a darker wash.) The fact that they’re leggings makes them super comfortable. But since they’re styled to look like jeans, I can fool people into thinking I actually put some effort into my outfit. Plus the high stretch content helps them mode to the body so they will look great on a wide variety of body types.

Outfit ideas and more options after the jump.

Long Term Investment:
This was a little tricky, since in my opinion there’s no universally flattering brand of jeans. If you’re in the market for a high end jeggings option, you should probably check to see if you’re favorite brand makes a pair.  Personally I like the clean styling of J.Brand jeans.


Momentary Infatuation…


I know many people who swear by AE jeans as a great alternative to pricey designer denim.
