Hi ladies, i really like black jeggings, but..
I am firmly in the camp that, if your leggings are not thick enough to obscure what’s underneath them, don’t wear them as trousers (or pants if we’re being American.) I can’t tell you how many women I see breaking this rule at university. It seems entirely likely that they don’t realise everyone can see their pants through them (or underwear if we’re being American) but, at the same time, why don’t they do a basic check in a mirror in daylight, or even ask a trusted friend? Well, whatever…
Jeggings, on the other hand, which once seemed to suggest those awful, elasticated Marks and Spencers trousers for the older woman, have grown on me. The first attempts by various high street stores were pitiful, baggy affairs that were more reminiscent of sacking than pull-on jeans. Later attempts have been better, such as these:
I have now bought two pairs of these Dorothy Perkins black jeggings which, in a regular, manage to amply cover my 34″ inside leg. They do a short and long version of these, though they seem to be out of stock at the moment, and they come in many different colours. My sister has grey ones which are a slightly shinier material.
(sorry for the blurry pic) So, if you’re looking for a pair of jeans that can be worn without a belt and do not have buttons and zips which bulge out under tighter tops, then these are a safe bet.Do be aware that they do lose their colour a little after a few washes, but I’m still satisfied they’re worth it, especially for the small price of £23.
Here is a few outfit ideas that inspires me :
Long hair and comfy outfit on the beach! perfect 🙂
Shirt and sweater combo with black jeggings and boots

Tunic top and black jeggings
Wear Long top with jeggings to hide the belt area and to hide underwear lines in leggings/jeggings
