#5: Jeggings 

Definition:

leggings that resemble tight-fitting denim jeans

Example:

"For those who love the sleek look of a skinny jean but can't stand the leg-sucking compression, impossibly small openings at the ankles or rigid denim digging into skin, the skinny jean/legging hybrid known as jeggings could be a worthy alternative – or just one more reason to feel like their thighs will never be toned enough." — Melissa Magsaysay, latimes.com, January 17, 2010
