Q I like the look of those stretchy, skinny jeans. What kind of tops and shoes would I wear with them?

A Those pants, a cross between jeans and leggings (hence the nickname jeggings), look best with a long, loose, tunic-style top. Or you can try a T-shirt under a long vest or slouchy boyfriend sweater.

The longer, looser top creates an interesting contrast to the skin-tight jeggings and helps hide any bulges around the middle, rear or thighs.

As for footwear, jeggings look great teamed with still-trendy gladiator-style sandals. To dress them up, you also could go for high-heel pumps.

Keep in mind that jeggings aren't ideal for hot, muggy, summer days, unless you're someplace heavily air-conditioned. They're thicker than leggings and tighter than jeans, and contain a lot of spandex, which tends to trap heat and sweat. So you may want to save your jeggings for early fall, when you can pair them with an oversized sweater and tuck them into boots.
