Joggers: The Acceptable Sweatpants

In San Francisco, wearing yoga pants to brunch is totally acceptable. In fact, it’s the norm. San Franciscans are so health conscious that they’d rather sit sweaty through breakfast than interrupt their workout schedule. I’m ok with it because I am one of those people, but I realize spandex at mealtime doesn’t fly nationwide. Introducing joggers, the new sweatpants that are suitable for day and nighttime wear. Even the ladies of SF approve!

The jogger pant consists of an elastic waist and leg openings. The fit is loose and slouchy, and depending on the material, they can look dressy or casual. To me, dressy is safe so I prefer a silk or polyester composition. But if you’re looking for an alternative to your Wunder Unders, consider a cottony material. So how do you style a pair of joggers?! Allow me to explain.

For a daytime look, tie up an embellished t-shirt and throw on your favorite slides. Take it up a notch by layering dainty necklaces over each other. Casual has its place but I dressed my joggers for date night. Isn’t it amazing what a little bit of lace can do? This bodysuit singlehandedly transformed my ensemble into evening wear. Lately these baroque mules are my best walking shoes, but a strappy black sandal would look even better.

    Very cool pants and you look great in them. And what do you think of such a dress made of satin? Recently they are very fashionable and popular, as you think – are they more suited to more elegant styling?

    I think with the right accessories “anything goes” in 2017. Plus, with chunky jewelry and a moto jacket you can transform a simple slip dress into an edgy ensemble.
