What should a size 18/20 wear with jeggings?

I discovered sainsburys jeggings a few months ago and since have been wearing them with boots and long baggy jumpers. It's also really cold in our office at the moment so I've taken to wearing them to work too rather than the smarter stuff I usually wear.

Any idea what else I can wear with them without feeling too exposed or frumpy?

Wear whatever you like.

I like long vests and check or chambray shirts. Or peplum tops.

I wear tunic or fit and flare style dresses.

I can't find jeans to fit, so I tend to wear black jeggings.

I stick to long, flowing tunic style tops that finish mid thigh - I jazz them up with bright scarves, and necklaces.

Most important thing with jeggings and similar is that top is long enough - well over bottom and only a few inches above knee.

I like to wear long back vest & then a soft thin jumper over

Agreed. Longish silk vest with a necklace and long open cardi or long open check shirt. Harder to pull off jeggings in hot summer weather though. I swap to cotton stretch capri pants to just below the knee, fit flops and long shirt over vest.
