When leggings mate with jeans…

Leggings-mated-with-jeans

… you get Sivvy’s ‘Sophie’ cropped skinny jeans, $242 at Shopbop.

Unlike our old friend girls jeggings, which are merely leggings PRETENDING to be jeans (Impostor Alert! Impostor Alert!), these are an actual hybrid: skinny jeans with a jersey insert. Which is… an idea. And if you’re someone who has difficulty making your mind up in the morning (“Jeans or leggings?” So much choice!”) you may even think it’s a pretty good idea at that.

Do you, though? Would you pay $243 to find out what it’s like at that border where jeans and leggings meet? Or does the photo tell you all you need to know?

    This model has, without doubt, the pointiest knees I have ever seen.

    They are pointy aren’t they? As to the pant-like things, they look cheap. Why would anyone pay that much money to look cheap?

    pointy knees, yes, but nice legs in general. I would even try out this style but not for so much money..

    Nice legs yes, but a bit on the thin side: my arms are probably thicker than her legs!

    Those knees could poke someone’s eye out! And as for the jeans… tragic, really.

    Those legs are unpleasantly bony, all around, really.
    And why would you wear skinny jeans (which I don’t like on principal to begin with) and then wear such clunky shoes?
    ^-.-^

    All I like in that photo are the shoes.
