Leggings are known to be made of a lightweight material that will usually be stretchy. Some leggings are opaque but there are also some leggings that are a bit on the translucent side. Some may think that leggings are similar to stockings but most people use leggings for dancing. Jeggings are usually made of harder materials.
They look like jeans and they also have buttons and zippers but they are far more stretchable as compared to the usual jeans. Some jeggings even come with real pockets so they can be used similarly to how you use your usual jeans. Leggings and jeggings usually come in different colors and types.
Leggings are probably one of the most comfortable pair of pants you can wear aside from wearing pajama bottoms. Many women like to wear the leggings under a long tunic or shorter dress. However, some people dress up leggings and go to work because they make them look good. Most of the time, people do not wear leggings without a longer top to go with it.
A few years ago, a new invention was created similar to leggings, and they are called jeggings. They have the feel of leggings, but they look more like jeans. Jeggings are made of soft denim, but they feel as comfortable as wearing leggings. They may look like tight jeans to those who see them on someone.
