For those of you who follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve noticed my obsession with joggers. There are some days that I just can’t stand the thought of putting on real pants. Today [unsurprisingly], was one of those days. I was cold, tired and feeling pretty sore from my workout the night before, so those cozy pants were lookin’ pretty appealing. I reached for my Anthropologie Cloth & Stone joggers and paired them with a striped ribbed tank and a cozy cardigan (both from Abercrombie & Fitch, oddly.) It may not have been my most chic day, but it sure was comfy, and was very true to my personal style.
I love that joggers a solid step up from sweatpants, but provides most of the same qualities (though maybe lacking the same warmth factor.) The key is to balance out the look with the right shoes and the right top. I’m probably not going to pair my joggers with an oversized sweater or a long tunic, because then I’ll look like I’m heading to bed, not heading to work. A safe bet is to pair your joggers with a slim-fit solid tee and a chic [maybe leather] jacket. Add in a nice layered necklace and a pair of ankle booties, and you’ve got yourself a comfortable AND on-trend look.
