Gone are the days where joggers are frowned upon in the fashion world. They're no longer just the go to effortless item of clothing to throw on for the gym, or laze about in on rainy Sundays for a major box-set catch-up session.
Joggers have the versatility to be dressed up or down, it all boils down to what you team them with, and whether you want to be smart-casual or just downright casual. Are you popping out for a night out with the lads, or want to lounge about at home for a chilled evening? Make sure you choose the right combo! You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, so why not combine both?
Choose Your Joggers
Stand out from the crowd and make a statement with bold printed joggers. Add a bit of jazz to your wardrobe, and team with a plain tee or shirt to liven up your jogger style. If you’re afraid to go anywhere near bold prints, add a splash of colour instead, and stray from the standard plain joggers look to spruce up your smart-casual game.
It's not all about standing out though for some of us, for a more casual look opt for a pair of trusty neutral classic joggers, and pair with a playful printed t-shirt or bright coloured top. You can smarten any neutral toned pair of joggers with a smart buttoned down or checked shirt.
T-shirts and Shirts
What you team your joggers with is vital. If you go for a simple monochrome pair of joggers, finish your look with a polo shirt. Polos offer a stylish sleek twist and with a tailored collar, you’ve mastered the smart-causal look! We all want to look stylish AND comfortable, but you might just be looking for a hip pair of joggers on those casual days, and hey that’s okay too!
Picking the right t-shirt is the best way to boost your casual jogger style. Choose a printed or bold tee if you’ve opted for a pair of plain joggers to perk up your look, or if you want to tone it down choose a smart white or navy tee, and double up with a subtle printed pair of joggers.
Add the finishing touch to your jogger style by choosing the right kicks. If you want a more casual look for heading out with friends or to the gym, opt for slip on vans or fresh white trainers. Heading out for the night? Smarten up your look and pair a buttoned down shirt with tailored joggers, and shoes like these brogues for an edgy style and more formal finish.
It’s not summer yet (sadly), so we haven’t forgotten about layering up for those colder nights. Fix up your jogger style with a classic bomber style jacket on top of a plain tee or shirt, teamed with printed joggers. If you want more of an edgier look, why not finish up your look by layering up with a biker jacket?
On the Street
There are so many ways you can improve your jogger style. We took to the streets and snapped the ways you're mixing up your looks.
