Joggers aren’t that go-to comfortable item you wear on the weekends anymore, they can be dressed up and actually worn out of the house in style and this guide will show you how.
Wearing joggers purely for loungewear is a thing of the past. It is perfectly acceptable to go out of the house in a pair of joggers, without looking like you’re wearing pyjama bottoms.
Joggers have become the go to casual wear for most men, due to their comfort and simplicity. There are also a variety of joggers that have added detail and style, to make them less like loungewear but more like everyday casual outwear.
Choosing the Right Joggers
Before dressing up a pair of joggers, you need to choose the ones you want to dress up. As I said before there are a variety of different styles and added detailing to uplift the comfy jogger. Ribbed detailing on the knee, and chunky zips on the pockets are one way designers and brands have vamped up the average pair of joggers. A thicker material used around the waist line is also a common detail, with drawstring giving you the option to tighten up the joggers if needed.
How to Dress them Up
Consider joggers as the new chinos or jeans. Ditch the slip on shoes and the regular tees and try experimenting with other items of clothes to uplift your own pair of joggers. Throw on a button down shirt and a pair of smarter shoes and you can have a bang on trend look that will not only be comfortable but stylish as well.
Joggers are a great way to show of your new kicks. If you want to keep it casual but still dressing up your joggers, try a pair of sleek trainers such as this grey pair from Vans. If you want to dress up your joggers a bit more than match them with some Chelsea or desert boots or even a pair of smarter shoes such as brogues or loafers, the world’s your oyster.
T-shirts and Shirts
It is often far to easy just to throw together a causal look, without even thinking what you’re wearing. A plain tee and joggers may be suitable to be worn around the house or even to a 9 am lecture, but is it the best option for an everyday look? Think about dressing up your joggers even more with a shirt, a print or oxford one would do the trick.
Jumpers and Hoodies
As you all know by now, layering is a necessity when it comes to autumn and winter. The same rule applies when dressing up your joggers, especially when wearing them around this time of the year. You can build up your shirt or t-shirt with a hoodie for extra comfort or a jumper and shirt combo for that smarter edge. You could also opt just to wear a jumper, whether that be a sweatshirt or cable knit to match with your joggers.
