Jogger pants are so comfortable and fun to wear, yet they can be tricky when it comes to styling. We both have the same joggers from Artizia and love them! They’re thin and a little bit flowy, so the material can easily go from casual to dressy any season of the year. Another great thing about the material–it’s great for travel–the wrinkles just seem to melt away after wearing them for about 15 minutes. They can also be ironed, if you’re so inclined. 😉
Here we are showing them styled three ways:
Athletic – Pair the joggers with cool sneakers and an activewear top. Krista is wearing a turtleneck and hooded down vest, but they can also be paired with a fun sweatshirt or t-shirt in warmer weather. For another look keep on your funky sneakers, but wear a sweater instead of an athletic top. If wearing a bulky sweater, it helps to do a slight front tuck to define the waist and keep it from looking too boxy.
Casual, but not athletic – Julie is wearing her joggers with booties and a casual top. It’s dressier than activewear, and this look can take you anywhere from casual get-togethers to the workplace. She’s added a cool, fringy cross-body purse, but fun jewelry can be added to dress it up a bit too, adding visual interest. We’ve actually found that booties can be kind of tricky though…low-cut ankle booties work best, so that’s there’s some skin showing between the pant and boot. Otherwise they end up looking like some sort of elf costume or 80’s hammer pants–not a look we’re after unless its Halloween!
Dressy joggers – Put on a fancy top like this off-the-shoulder blouse, add dressier accessories with some sparkle, and finish with high heels–the perfect date night look! We think joggers look great with high heels. Just make sure your shoes don’t compete with the elastic bottoms on the jogger pants. You don’t want your joggers bunching up or catching on your shoes. In the summer months, you an even roll the cuff once for more of a cropped look. These pants are so versatile, the styling combinations are endless!
One last note on sizing–it’s important to not wear these too tight. You want them slightly loose…not too loose, but definitely not too tight. The fabric should not cling or stretch across your backend too tightly. They work well with tops that are mid-hip length or longer.
