An ode to jeggings: Why jeggings are one of the best inventions of the 21st century

Here is a list of why jeggings are one of my favorite clothing items.

  1. You can go from work to bed seamlessly (pun alert) because they’re just that comfortable.
  2. It’s like wearing pajamas to work, but not.
  3. Have I mentioned they’re great to wear to work?
  4. They hide that little stomach paunch that seems impossible to lose or firm up.
  5. You can spontaneously break out into yoga whenever you like.
  6. You can buy them at Wal-Mart for less than $15.
  7. They’re publicly acceptable, as long as you’re wearing a long enough shirt.
  8. If your pen or sandwich (five second rule) falls to the ground, you can grab it and not have to yank your pants up every two seconds.
  9. They can be pulled up past your muffin-topping zone.
  10. You could gain or lose five pounds, and they’d still fit.
  11. They look fantastic with boots or heels.
  12. No belt is required (I hate belts for pants. Waist belts are another matter).
  13. Normal, human movement is celebrated.
  14. You can do high kicks without ripping them.
  15. You can sit cross-legged, and it’s not an issue.
  16. If you need to hold something and your hands and arms are already full, you can use your stretchy waistband as an extra pair of arms.
  17. They come in a variety of colors and patterns.
  18. Some guys seem to like the appearance of them, I guess.
  19. Comfort is actually attainable without wearing leggings or sweatpants in public.
  20. They’re fantastic.
