Tipped off by some of our readers (you know who you are), I discovered Jeggings this winter – you may recall back in October, our Ask the Stylist: Jeggings article gave us the lowdown on how to wear these leggings cum jeans and so this installement of Go Buy Now is dedicated to shopping for them.
I’m now seeing this new wardrobe staple everywhere on the high street and this week’s find came from none other than Vero Moda (that’s “real fashion” in Italian).
Last week, again through a readers tip off, I bought a pair of jeggings in Vero Moda and am now wondering how I survived without them.
They come as “jeans” (blue denim, stone washed grey and or black) and also in solid colours such as navy, dark grey and true light grey. I loved the pair of black ones I bought so much that I went back the following day for a navy and a “blue jeans” pair.
They cost €14.95 each or you can get two pairs for €24.95. Needless to say, the second time around I availed of the two pairs offer!
Dare I say it but the Vero Moda grey jeggings look like these ones worn in January by Victoria Beckham spotted at Heathrow airport (hers were Stella McCartney ombre jeans worn with an Isabel Marant a/w 2009 fur coat, a grey tank top, a grey trilby hat and Brian Atwood suede peep-toe ankle boots).
After discussing the styling implications for wearing jeggings (the main thing is to cover your crotch!), these babies are so comfortable and fit into my winter boots perfectly – they super fitted and even make my legs look slimmer!
So out with the skinny jeans it is. My denim effect jeggings are now my new skinnies.
