Okay, guys. I'm seriously stepping out of my comfort zone with this outfit today. Let's rephrase that and say "running leap" out of my comfort zone. I've always thought joggers were ridiculously cute (on other people), but just could never pull them off myself! Just look at these stylish ladies on Pinterest!
Up until today, I've never actually worn a pair of my own. I've tried plenty on, but they haven't ever fit me quite right because of my long legs. Then, I went into Loft a couple of weeks ago (where I've taken a little break from working this fall), and the fabulous ladies encouraged me to try on this pair of charcoal joggers. Since they're made of a tweed fabric, I knew they'd be a little dressier for work. I paired them with a simple, look fitting V-neck tee and my burnt orange Loft cardigan from last fall. The joggers were super comfy, but didn't appear too casual for work since I tried to incorporate some dressier pieces into my outfit.
Here are my top 4 (amateur) tips for pulling off this look for work:
1. A slouchy tee or a chambray button-down look great with joggers! Just remember accessorizing is key for work! You don't want to look like your headed to the gym!
2. A summery wedge or fall bootie with a heel will really dress up your look, and are both really cute with joggers!
3. For a more structured look on top, try a blazer or leather jacket to give your outfit a high-low effect.
3. If you're still not quite sure how to style your joggers, go for a mono-chromatic look. Black joggers paired with a black heel, black jacket or long cardigan and a dark gray tee is a really classy look.
