Styling the joggers
Now that you know the key pieces to wear, it’s time to turn your attention to how to style joggers. When it comes to pulling off jogger outfits, creating the right balance of casual and smart is key. Nobody wants to look like they’ve just rolled out of bed, so take some inspiration from our style guide to stay fresh but cosy no matter the occasion.
1. Class look
Joggers were practically made for wearing to lectures – or at least, they should have been. Check prints add edgy detail to the simplest of outfits, making a check shirt or jacket a must have when wearing grey trackies. Go for a darker colour scheme for the top and shoes to create a stylish contrast that’s sure to turn heads.
2. Formal look
Going to a formal event but don’t want to give up the joggers? We get it – they’re the one piece that offers equal amounts of comfort and style, so it’s no wonder why you never want to be without them. Learning how to style tracksuit bottoms fashionably for formal events may seem impossible but luckily for you, we’ve got your back. Keep it smart with a crisp white shirt – opt for a slim fit to show off the results of arm day without straying from the dress code. You can add a skinny black tie and blazer if the event calls for it, otherwise stick with a leather jacket to bring a bad boy vibe to the outfit.
3. Sporty sets
Whether you’re heading out for a run or playing footy with the lads, a matching tracksuit is a must have if you’re getting sporty outside. Designed with stretch technology, tracksuit bottoms help you look stylish and stay on top of your game. Tracksuit sets are effortless and trendy, ideal for a grab ‘n go outfit – when you don’t have much time to spare. If it’s too hot for hoodies, trade it for a breathable tee and style it out with a baseball hat in the same colour as your joggers for a more subtle matching outfit. Impress your mates with some footie skills by wearing sporty trainers with strong soles – nobody wants to slip up on the pitch.
