Worth the Investment: J Brand Legging Jean

A trend for fall that I'd just not had the time to look into, but have been following with piqued interest is the legging jean. It's pretty self-explanatory, right? It's a jean that's a legging...or a legging that's a jean. Potato, po-TAH-to. It makes perfect sense, really. You wanna wear big, bouncy, oversized tops, but leggings can sometimes feel a little too predictable. You want a little more ooomph on your legs when it's chilly out, but not a lot of bulk. You want your jeans to be comfortable enough to wear all night and not have to be peeled out of them at the end of the night. Convinced yet?

I used this latest iteration of the jean for the first time last week on a client. I got an up-close and personal look, and literally, they feel like skin-tight pajamas. It's the best of both worlds--the comfort of a legging in a jean-shaped package. I'm completely obsessed with this one by J Brand. You can buy it online all over the internet or get it in town in Franklin at Emmaline. If you are in the market for a new pair of jeans this fall, I highly recommend these. And for around $139, they really will end up being good in the long-run in $/wear.

Followed advice from a friend, and went and bought denim leggings by "Domaine" from T.J. Max, and thought I'd should pass it along to you. They are definitely blog worthy, and range from $12.99- 16.99!
