One of the most versatile pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe over the last few months has been a pair of joggers. Not as limiting as leggings but easier to wear than full on pallazo pants, joggers are no longer left for the gym. This trend isn’t new (they made a resurgence about a year ago), but they’re still so…cool. Seriously. On a chill day you can throw them on with a tee + flip-flops, but if you top with a silky blouse, long chains + strappy sandals or stilettos? Instant uptown/downtown coolness.
Try them in any material (it’s so humid out I favor cotton at the moment), but note that once cooler weather starts to appear, they can easily transition if they’re top with a blazer and scarf. The key is fit (they should sit lower on your waist and be slightly relaxed through the thigh), length (ankle length/tapered, preferably with an elastic leg opening) and personal styling (scrunch them up at the bottom while it’s still hot).
I own 3 pair (2 solids, one printed) and am still hunting for more.
