Like leggings? Try... jeggings
Many women love their legwear, which is why a new term - jeggings - may be commonly used in the near future, it has been reported.

The hybrid hosiery emerged last week when fashion chain Warehouse previewed a collection it hopes will spread a trend among fashionistas everywhere, combining jeans and leggings to make a new look for summer, the Irish Independent revealed.

It is hoped the new look will be perfect for those people unwilling to invest in the ever-popular skinny jeans, which are known to be unforgiving on a girl's pins.

When paired with a long jumper, it is hoped the leggings will look similar to drainpipe jeans, though maternity audiences are also covered by the seamless, elasticated properties, the newspaper added.

Earlier this month, Jeffrey Thompson of the Examiner offered some explanation for the new fashion trend of meggings - male leggings - which are becoming increasingly popular with fashion-conscious American men.
