So, what exactly are “Treggings”?

by Jaime on September 5, 2011

It’s probably a bad sign when some stupid piece of clothing comes around and a month later I’m still scratching my head. And then I realize that the entire reason I’m scratching my head is become some idiot is an even bigger idiot when it comes to product nomenclature. So, hooray for that.

But, I’ve been informed! Which, while I’m using exclamation marks, I’m not sure is something that’s actually good!

What are Treggings?

Well, they’re… oh, crap, I’ll just come out and say it. They’re trouser leggings. Leggings designed like trousers. Just… sit on that for a while.

Leggings – ones that don’t require a dress or tunic over them – have only one place in this world: a fire pit. A burning, evil fire pit of doom and polyester.

Here’s the thing: these have been around for a while, and the name is really what’s so new. I own pairs from 7 For All Mankind, Charley 5.0, Frankie B. Jeans and probably others, but I still trend toward wearing them with tunics – because I prefer to not as if I have no idea how to wear clothing.

Case and point?

Hmm.

Well, let’s pretend I didn’t just share that. How do you feel about the idea of Treggings – too much, silly name or something else?

It’s the silly names that are driving me crazy. Fashion is a serious business. I mean personal style can be fine, but adding these ridiculous names to articles of clothing is making a joke out of the fashion business.

I’d argue that fashion is absolutely supposed to be fun and a little silly – but I’m with you, Lauren. This is a bit over the line in my book.

So let me get this straight… they have two legs, a fly, and pockets? What makes them stand out as “designed like trousers” as opposed to every other pair of pants ever made? I am cornfused.
