Chanel Jeggings Spring 2011

In the last year jeggings have made long strides, even Karl Lagerfeld has now whipped some up for the Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2011 show in Paris. He masterly styled them under Chanel suits, skirts, or with a scarf around the waist as pictured here.

My first encounter with jeggings happened just over a year ago. They were fresh on the market and I thought it would be an excellent accompaniment to the wardrobe I was prepping for a scheduled fashion shoot in New York. Of course, I was slightly hesitant to risk my reputation on them because they weren't actually denim. I fell in love, though others may have found it gauche to fake skinny jeans. In fact, once I worked up the courage to present them to the editor-in-chief her reaction was,

"what do I think of them? I think they were inevitable."

You can only imagine my shame. Luckily, that didn't stop me from wearing them all year to the point that the stitching is now worn in places and I'm on the market for a new pair. Thankfully, Karl is looking out for me!

Sincerely, Lex
