Stuck-Together-Clothes Crimes: Jonathan Aston skeggings

We have a new word for your fashion vocabulary readers.  Following on from skorts, shants and shress, we present the skegging.  We can’t take credit for the neologism that went into this particular creation; that honour lies entirely with Mr Jonathan Aston who has combined a skirt and leggings to form, yes, skeggings.  We are sorry to have to inform you that as well as the plain black version you see here, this also comes in a grey animal print skirt over black leggings version.  A warrant has been issued for the arrest of both.

But what do you think readers?  Is this a practical invention or just a step too far in the direction of insanity?  If you would wear this and would like to buy it, it is available for £19.99 at TightsPlease.

    I think it works here, but again the purpose is stupid

    At least it will prevent the camel toe that usually comes with wearing leggings as pants

    I’d allow them to roam free, as the skirt prevents them from being worn as trousers.

    i think it’s very practical as you don’t have to hunt for a long top to wear with these skeggings , any short length top will work woth it.

    No no no no no…that’s all I can say. I find them offensive to women’s clothing as a general whole. Leggings = Great. Skirt = Fantastic. Clearly someone thought that by mixing the two they’d be onto a winner, but to be honest I’d say Skeggings = ewwww!
