Jeggings are currently one of the fastest growing trends in the fashion industry and their appeal has remained unwavering since their introduction in the late 2000s.
This cross between jeans and leggings came about on the back of the trend for skinny jeans in 2010. Jeggings, made from denim fabric with a high spandex content offer the comfort and flexibility of leggings with the look of jeans.
The popularity of leggings in general has been on the rise, thanks to the growing athleisure trend. Jeggings are currently the most popular type of leggings, although new styles are coming out all the time with new trends including crushed velvet leggings and viscose leggings.
Due to their high amount of stretch, jeggings are very forgiving when it comes to sizing. This means that unlike jeans, you can shop online without the fear of getting a pair that is too tight or uncomfortable.
As online fashion retail has also soared in volume over the last 10 years, this may have also contributed to the popularity of jeggings.
Big name designers and fashion houses are now making jeggings too. Designer jeggings and leggings are now available from Michael Kors, Reiss, Valentino, and other luxury brands.
With everyone from celebrities to teenagers embracing jeggings, and new styles appearing every season, it looks like this trend is here to stay.
