When denim leggings first came on the scene, some of us here were a bit skeptical. Kind of a good idea, kind of too close to the 80's for comfort. However, as with all good trends, this one has been advancing and has turned into something we're totally embracing, especially once we slipped into American Eagle's Legging Jean ($40). These have all the comfort of leggings, but actually feature a functioning button and zipper, as well as back pockets. No need for a tunic top, there's no elastic waistband on these babies! Plus, there's really no easier way to wear boots over jeans. Nice work, AE.
