Back in the day, jeggings gained a bit of a reputation for being the pants of choice of basic b*tches. But if you ask me, they’re seriously underrated. Not only are they the closest you can get to wearing leggings when they’re not socially acceptable (ie. at work), but aesthetically, they’ve come a long way since they first became a thing.
Gone are the paper-thin jeggings with the old-man waistbands. These days, they’re just as flattering as skinny jeans, but without being restrictive and leaving welt marks on your skin. What’s more, they even look like jeans — so nobody will even be able to tell you’re wearing jeggings!
Trust me, once you jump on the jegging train, you’ll never want to wear regular jeans again. Scroll through the gallery for 7 of our top picks. There’s a pair to suit every style and shape!
Not only are Freddy’s jeggings insanely comfy, they give your butt a nice little boost using their in-built shaping technology. No butt pads required!
