There is a great debate going on whether the hottest trend now-leggings- are acceptable to wear to the office. In fact the newly coined term “Jeggings” in which you can see how it was comprised below seems to have surpassed the legging craze.

Jennifer and I both believe that leggings, jeggings, liquid leggings, etc- are not the most professional attire to own in your wardrobe these days no matter what type of business environment you may work in. Jeggings definitely don’t qualify as jeans or denim even if you are allowed to wear denim to your office on Fridays or any other day of the week.
What if you have a super casual office and everyone wears them? Well, We get asked that question all of the time. Again if we had to put the stamp of approval on them we wouldn’t do so since there is a such a fine line in making them look appropriate. We often see them look more inappropriate (too short of a shirt being worn over the legging, too clingy in all the wrong places, too tight) these days than the latter. So if you have any hesitation when putting them on when getting dressed for work in the morning then it is best to keep them for going out on the weekends.
