Jeggings Season

It's that time of year again. Leaves are falling from the trees, somber skies are evoking angsty poetry, and girls everywhere are pulling their jeggings out of storage. These hybrid pants - a combination of jeans and leggings - became so popular last year that the word was included in the Oxford English Dictionary. My friend Sara introduced me to jeggings last fall, patiently explaining the concept of the garment. Tacky, guileful, an excuse to wear leggings in public and seem less teenagey, perhaps - but the fact that jeggings exist bring a smile to my face, if only because I like the way the word rolls front to back to front in the mouth.
