Weird Trend from Men’s Fashion Week: Jeggings
By LEAH CHERNIKOFF
The runways for RTW Spring 2011 in Milan this past week have been littered with man-jeggings. (Neologism = meggings?) And T’s The Moment blog just confirmed it with a tweet: “Jeggings- new term coined for all the jean and trouser-like leggings and super slim, tight pants being shown here this season.”
The jegging is a risky and conflicted clothing item for most ladies. On the one hand, when done right, they’re just like skinny jeans only more comfortable (hooray for elastic waist bands!). On the other hand, they can be epically ugly and tricky to pull off.
And now, terrifyingly, men are following suit. Lauren even noticed man-jeggings at Top Shop back in January.
We’re hoping this isn’t a trend that trickles down. But we’ve seen enough too-tight skinny jean-ed ass-cracks along Bedford Ave. to know that hipsters aren’t parting with their beloved trousers anytime soon. So we’re looking at you, Williamsburg, when we say: Please, treat this trend responsibly.
