Denim Leggings Trend Alert

The most fashionable celebrities have been spotted wearing the new fall trend-denim leggings.
The best of them, look like skinny jeans but are much more comfortable due to the additional stretch material.

Are These Stretch Jeans OR Leggings That Look Like Jeans?

Well, if you must get technical, it depends on the designer. Some of denim leggings in question, like the True Religion pair below, do not have a stitch of cotton in them which means that they are not denim at all. Other designers are using the a mix of denim and stretch material to achieve the look.

Many premium denim designers believe that this denim legging trend will be with us for the next couple of seasons. I look forward to witnessing where this trend will take us.

I personally prefer the denim leggings which were designed with a commitment to look as much like jeans as possible like the Hudson pair below. I am not in to that smooth look with no pockets like the ones worn by Beyonce above.

Advantage of Denim Leggings
1. The stretch material is more comfortable than regular jeans and shouldn't cause muffin top syndrome.
2. The stretch material should fit snuggly on top of boots or inside of boots depending on your preference.
