Jeggings are leggings which are styled to look like tight denim jeans. The 'j' not only refers to the appearance of denim, but also to the fact that they were first worn for jogging in early 2009. Apart from the 'jean' adaptation, some jeggings are made with a new type of nylon named nylon PV1.

Jeggings are worn primarily by women. They are especially popular among teenage girls and young women, brought on by the resurgence in style of skinny jeans in the mid- to late-2000's, when a higher demand for even tighter style of pant came about.  However, Apparel Search has commented that jeggings are an important trend in the youth market. 

Since they are typically made of a denim/spandex blend (however, sometimes other materials are used and have detailing to give the appearance of denim) and simply resemble regular tight pants, they are often worn on their own as opposed to under a skirt or dress. Some jeggings have faux zip-flies and pockets, while others just have an elastic waistband and no pockets.

Jeggings come in many styles and sizes.  You can find women's jeggings, girls jeggings, maternity jeggings, plus size jeggings, designer jeggings and more.
