When the big question of choosing between fashion and comfort hits, what do you end up choosing?
I am quite certain that most women would answer ‘fashion’, including myself. We’ve all been on that boat, haven’t we? But it doesn’t have to be that way. We have diverse opinions about dressing in comfort. Some women feel congenial in jeans while some feel at ease in skirts and so on. To me personally, jeans are not the first choice of relaxed bottoms but I often end up wearing them because they go with everything and incredibly easy to dress. But recently I’ve been eyeing a lot of women sporting jogger pants. I know, it sounds odd and not something one would consider wearing outside of the gym or house however, fashion scene in the recent years has become more creative and edgy. I personally never thought I would contemplate wearing jog pants beyond the threshold of my house but to my surprise, the idea is officially on the table. I reckon there’s nothing better than leaving the house looking super chic and feeling comfy at the same time, am I right?
So today’s edition of Fave Friday Finds is Upgraded Jogger Pants.
Aside from being extremely comfortable these pants are also found to be one of the most Googled clothing pieces this years. So, if you don’t own a pair at present, you probably should because they are uber fashionable right now. They may not be your ideal Monday to Thursday pants but they are perfect for weekends. And in case your beau or friends plan to catch up with you for dinner on a Friday night, you won’t even have to run home to change into your ‘night-out jeans’ because these pants can easily be dressed ‘up’ or ‘down’ depending on the day or occasion.
Now let’s talk about the real concern. Even though I love jogger pants, it took me a while to imagine myself dressed in one of these while out and about. I’m sure similar thoughts are lingering in your head too. So, if you are trying figure out a way to dress these jogger pants in a grown up way so you are not judged by people, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. First things first, you wanna make sure that you are not dressing these pants like you would at the gym or home otherwise you’ll just end looking sloppy in situations you are not supposed to. The whole idea of wearing these pants is to look chic and feel comfortable and here’s how I would suggest dress these pants with class.
Swap the whole casual gym look with a cool glammed-up look. Pick a pair of upgraded jogger pants and wear them with a classy, grown up, button down shirt and strappy high heels. Carry a sharp sling bag or a large-sized clutch with a pair of sunglasses and you are good to go.
In my opinion, these pants look best when they are not too tight around the thighs. So pick a pair that sits comfortably on your waist but slightly loose around the thighs and calves. They can be dressed up for a casual look too, if you are into that kind of style. Nonetheless, these pants look just as awesome in both styles. If you choose the right fabric and style, you can make your joggers multi-occasion worthy, fit for any day.
Here’s a super combination that’ll have you set for a perfect evening.
