In my book, Saturdays call for simple plans and even simpler outfits. Give me a coffee shop, good company, and comfortable clothes and that’s a pretty ideal picture. But while I do crave comfort, I’m also conscious about being in a bad outfit. You know, one of those clothes pairings that you just don’t feel like yourself in. For me, joggers are one of those unicorn pieces in your wardrobe that provides instant comfort and an instant chic-factor.
Because I’m ever so short, joggers are my best pant friends. They’re exceedingly forgiving in the length department and typically created from soft materials like knits to ensure loads of comfort value. Plus, when styled confidently they exude that urban street style look that bloggers and NYFW participants have got down pat.
So, how to style the trend? First off, find a pair that fit you like a glove. I happened to pick up mine in the Juniors department of Kohls for less than $20. Depending on what you think looks good on your body type, pick up a pair that’s either a little more fitted or a little looser. Becuase I’m a small human, I often opt for a more fitted pair. The next step is to find a shirt that works with the look.
Going to a nicer event? Opt for a fitted or cropped shirt with some structure to offset the looser fit of the pants like this top from LOFT. For my weekend look, I went with this tunic from LOFT that’s about the softest thing you can imagine. The loose on loose look is just the right amount of easy breezy.
Dress up the look with some heels and emphasize your girly side with delicate jewelry and a wrist of fun bangles! The great thing about a look like this is the ability to refine it to match your mood/ fashion preferences. Dress up or dressed down, joggers are definitely a staple you’ll want to add to your summer 2017 wardrobe.
