Jeggings - The New Skinny On Jeans

From New York Magazine
When Trends Collide Just when you thought skinny jeans couldn't get any skinnier, the marketing geniuses at Topshop introduce a new term into our fashion vocabulary: Jeggings. (Or Treggings, to you Brits.) The brand's jean + legging hybrid is knit from cotton, polyester, and spandex, for that suck-it-in, painted-on look without the loss of circulation in your lower half. The Topshop site helpfully suggests that you pair these with an animal-print tunic (tunimal?).

Considering that most of the female population isn't 6 feet tall and 115 pounds with legs as long as Gisele Bundchen....are jeggings really a good idea?
Isn't painful enough that we have to wear skinny jeans which aren't exactly flattering for those of us without the DNA of a glamazon.

I'll pass on this one, and stick to my old lady bootcuts.

We tried these on my daughter; she couldn't even get her ankle through the opening so we quit!
