Things That Should Not Exist: The Word ‘Treggings’

First, there were leggings. And when those weren’t bad enough, there were jeggings. Once my mom had heard of jeggings, I thought they’d go away. But instead they spun off into “treggings” – trouser leggings, so sayeth H&M in their new billboards. The leggings are made in stretch fabrics that are supposed to resemble corduroy, leather, wool, and the like. Since the ones in this particular ad are light brown, I was sort of hoping they’d be “tree leggings” because you’re supposed to look like a stick when you wear them. No such luck.
