Today and for the past few years, the athleisure trend has been very popular. This trend involves wearing athletic clothes outside of the gym. The main thing to remember is that you need to wear more fitted clothes than your traditional gym attire, but the important point to remember is that these outfits are strictly for casual wear. There is a way to style joggers so that you’re wearing them properly. Here is how to properly style joggers for an athleisure look.
Joggers Are Casual Wear
Joggers are designed strictly for casual wear. Don’t pair them with a suit or you will look funny. I know magazines show this look at times, but it really doesn’t look good. In real life it just looks sloppy. The ideal place to wear joggers is when you’re at the gym, lounging around the house, or on casual errands if you’re going for that athleisure look.
Find The Right Type Of Joggers
The right type of joggers are made of cotton or performance fabric. Most joggers have an elastic waist with a drawstring. They also usually have elastic at the bottom of each pant leg. Don’t go with joggers that are made of more formal fabrics like dress pant fabric, or other formal fabrics. Linen joggers can look very nice for summer however.
Find The Right Fit
The main difference between joggers that you would wear to the gym and joggers you would wear around town is the fit. Joggers you wear to the gym will have a looser fit while joggers you wear around town will have a tighter fit.
Wear The Right Shoes With Your Joggers
Joggers are meant to be very casual so wear them with gym shoes. I don’t mean casual dress sneakers; I mean athletic shoes like you would wear while working out. Gym shoes by Nike, Adidas, and Puma are good types to wear with joggers.
In conclusion, keeping the following points in mind will ensure you wear joggers the right way. First joggers are casual. Second joggers to wear outside of the gym need to be fitted. Finally wear athletic shoes with your joggers for the best look.
