“Jegging” Alert: Silence + Noise Pale Blue Pull On Jeans

Pull_on_jeansRemember last week, when we introduced you to the phenomenon that is “jeggings“, and admitted that while we’re not crazy about the name, we had no real issue with lovechild of jeans and leggings themselves? We’d now like to revise that opinion, having been presented with new evidence in the shape of these Silence + Noise “pull on jeans”, which are denim leggings by any other name. Because these? These are just all kinds of wrong, aren’t they? We think it’s the elasticated waist that’s causing the problem. It makes them look like the kinda thing you’d wear if you’d just had, say, abdominal surgery and HAD to wear something with a bit of stretch to it. Why do these exist, we wonder? Why?

    My usual opinion on this I’m afraid: perfect for when you’re lazing about at home, are trying to summon up with will-power to go out in the garden or something so want to change out of your pyjamas but don’t want to get properly dressed…

    they exist because indie flask-carrying les paul-playing psuedo geeky hipsters need them to exist. simply tuck in a dirty t-shirt (one size too small for men, one size too large for ladies) throw over a vest or flanno, and be on your way…
    second hand shoes optional.
    dirty hair compulsory.

    Hmm, well the pic displayed is an awful representation of the species, but I actually have a petite friend who looks AWESOME in a certain variety of ‘jeggings’. We went out salsa dancing one night with our BFs- she wore her grey ‘jeggings’ with a slightly-below-the-hip ruffly red top and killer thick black patent heels 🙂
    gorgeous.
