I didn’t think I would ever give in to wearing joggers, but the more that I saw them online, the more I was willing to try them. They are a great alternative to that weekend denim. And like denim (and well, everything else), not all joggers are created equal.
I like these particular joggers for the light to mid-weight cotton/canvas material, oversized pockets, and wide elasticized cuff while not running overly large in the width. They run a bit large, so they are sagging a bit on me here, but even so, the length works well on a petite such as myself. And actually, would look even better if it sat a bit higher on the ankle on someone taller like the model.
I have yet to meet a jogger I would be comfortable wearing to work, however, despite their casual nature, they pair well with everything from oversized sweaters to button-downs to simple tees. I already wore the heck out of these during the holidays, and when spring and summer rolls around, I can guarantee they will be one of my go-tos for off-duty wear.
A little slow getting into the swing of things, but I think I’m finally ready to get going! We’ve been fortunate to be having a relatively mild winter this year. Luckily that means that I some days I can wear outfits that are more “fall-like”, and get away with things I’d normally not be able to get away with during this time of year, like say, sneakers without socks! Yes, really!
It’s been quite a while since I did one of these “five-ways” posts. Truth of the matter is, posts like these are much more time-consuming than the regular one-outfit posts, but I thought I would put some effort into making one since I’ve been thinking about it for some time now. Having said that, however, I’m going to cheat and use some old outfit posts for these cropped wide leg pants, or alternatively, culottes.
From last spring, an easy, work-appropriate outfit:
