Treggings Are a Thing—Here's How to Wear Them

In case you missed it, we recently declared treggings the new leggings, based on the trouser-legging hybrids that have been popping up at brands like H&M, The Row, and Zara. Given the immense popularity of leggings this year, it's not surprising that the trend would morph into spin-off trends, and treggings trump jeggings by a mile, in our opinion.

Similar to leggings, you may have questions as to how exactly to style these slim stretchy pants. The good news is that they're much easier to wear than straight-up leggings, as they typically are made of a thicker material and feature more of a pant-like cut (i.e., they're not skintight). But perhaps the best thing treggings have going for them is that they're just as comfortable as leggings but even more stylish.

To introduce you to the wonderful world of treggings, we put together nine cool, easy outfits involving your new favorite pants. The key to successfully pulling them off is combining the most complementary proportions. Since they are quite slim, they're perfect paired with more oversize pieces.
