Style Challenge: What to wear with jeggings

acid-wash-jeggings

Jeggings. They almost never go down well here at The Fashion Police, and yet, every time we set foot outside the HQ we see lots of people wearing them: often badly, it has to be said. In other words: they’re not going anywhere yet, so we thought it was time to investigate how best to wear them.

Your Style Challenge this week, then, readers, is to use Polyvore to build an outfit around the jeggings shown above.  Just to make it even more difficult fun, we’ve selected a pair of acid wash jeggings, too. You can thank us later.

You’ll find the rules of the game under the jump. If you simply want to BUY the jeggings, meanwhile, they’re £18 at New Look.

The Rules:

1. Log-in to Polyvore (you may need to create an account first, if you don’t already have one)

2. Create your outfit, save it and then…

3. You’ll find the jeggings here.  Build your outfit around it, and then post a link to your completed outfit in the comments on this post. We’ll publish them all next week sometime, and you can vote for your favourite.

4. Please note: you’re free to post links to as many outfits as you like, but please be aware that we’ll only post one entry per person. You can let us know which one you’d like us to use if you wish – if you don’t specify one, we’ll just choose the first one posted.

5. Once you’ve posted your link, please double check it to make sure it’s working properly – we get a lot of people posting links to the Polyvore home page, so we don’t get to see your outfit!

6. Comments on this entry will close on Monday, at around midday GMT. Once the comments are closed, we won’t be able to accept any further entries, so make sure you get yours in early!

    So, does Polyvore have face masks? Because unless my identity is hidden, I’m not wearing acid-washed jeggings.

    They’d work well to wear on an airplane because you’d look like you were wearing jeans but they would get all uncomfortable like jeans get on long flights… I added them to a set I made a couple months ago of an outfit to wear on a plane.

    Love your, India Black. Style and comfort when travelling is a hard balance to achieve.

    I decided that the only place I could really bear to see Jeggings would be on a Nursery School teacher, or someone who has to run around after small children all day, and may or may not get covered in paint and chocolate. So here it is – http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=13494400

    Just a regular day sipping coffees with the boyfriend at a bookseller or bistro, maybe convincing him that a visit to the nearest shoe store is in order…

    Acid-wash jeggings? Is the Chief of Police mad at us?

    Since Polyvore doesn’t seem to have a “kill it with fire” option, I did my best: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=13507241

    I went with the rocker look. I think I would actually wear these if I wore them with this kind of outfit.

    It would be better with good old fashioned woolly tights, but the jeggings are at least not reprehensible. (I hope!)
