The Best Denim Leggings for Work and Play

The key to pulling off a cute pair of jeggings is to remember they’re not quite pants, but rather a great companion piece for short dresses, long t-shirts, tunics, cardigans, blazers and more. Keep it casual for daytime or add some sparkle at night. Here’s all you need to know about wearing denim leggings the right way.

Pick Pockets

You can be a little more daring with how much you reveal when your denim leggings have pockets. This one has faux pockets in the front and real ones in the back so you can tuck in a t-shirt to run an errand or throw on a blazer to wear to the office.

Smooth Out Your Look

High-waisted, denim leggings give the illusion that you’re wearing skinny jeans, except these offer more comfort and support with a tummy control panel. It keeps your midsection looking smooth so you have the confidence to wear with more form-fitting tops.

The ripped denim look is here to stay, and jeggings are a perfect way to give it a test drive. Skip the bright patterns up top with an already head-turning style like this one, with rips in the knee and a distressed ankle. Instead, pair with basics, such as solid tees and understated shoes such as ballet flats.
