Ever wondered why women in the course of history endured the torturous corsets? They were excruciatingly uncomfortable but made them feel gorgeous. Thank god we live in an age where beauty is not just how we look. Now, beauty is how we feel. Fashion is now an extension of our personalities as opposed to putting up with aching trends, a luxury those gorgeous women in corsets never had!
We love existing in times where PJs are no longer frowned-upon and athleisure is a full-blown trend. We don't know if you can sense the excitement in our hearts as we write this, but we have news! Jogger outfits are in, even for the outdoors! Now that we are through with a little celebration dance, let's get to doing what we are here for! Fixing your fashion woes and giving you comforting wings to fly as you see fit (or anti-fit: see what we did there).
But wait, what exactly are joggers?
Joggers for women are a total godsend, granting your wish for a comfortable fit, while ensuring you look effortlessly stylish. Imagine your favourite pair of sweatpants and your go-to pair of stylish trousers coming together in a glorious fashion. That's what joggers are all about!
Joggers typically have a relaxed cut that tapers towards the ankles, giving them a sleek and chic silhouette. The elasticated waistband and roomy pockets are the little details that make these pants so loved.
Wondering what to wear with joggers? Famous for being uber versatile, you can style them beyond the predictable tops for joggers. There is so much you can do, and we have done all the work for you! Keep reading.
How to style joggers in 7 different ways
1. Get airport ready
When we think of an airport look, we think of joggers! Because what marries comfort and style better than our favourite pair of joggers? It's the chicest choice to wear matching tops for joggers and ace an airport look. Style it with a daring bag, and bold commando boots and you have got yourself a paparazzi-worthy airport look!
2. Tropical state of mind
Holidays call for breezy outfits, ones you can capture like a dream. Let's face it: printed maxis on beach holidays are so dated! Style a flowy cape with this gutsy pair of designer joggers on your next vacation!
PS: This print also helps ward off any evil eye wandering on your Instagram profile.
3. Go bar hopping with the girls
Not every night out requires you to slip into a little black dress. Sometimes a little black crop top with joggers does the trick just fine! Wear riveted sliders or ankle boots to add a touch of punk to this look. To level up, pair this jogger outfit with bejewelled heels and sparkly earrings.
4. Grocery run, but make it fashionable!
For a fuss-free yet fashionable look, style your tie-dye jogger outfit with sneakers and a cross-body bag. Save yourself from the harsh UV rays and elevate this look by adding a baseball cap and a pair of chunky sunglasses.
Pro Tip: To upgrade this outfit for a dressy lunch, all you need to do is tie your hair in a messy top knot, wear a bright lip colour and accessorise with bold gold hoops!
5. A leather jacket with joggers, a match made in heaven!
The best jogger outfits are often the simplest ones. We love that a small tweak transforms the entire vibe, thanks to these versatile pants. Style a pair of neutral joggers with a stark black leather jacket. Sip on your favourite coffee and strut across the streets in style!
6. Twinning with boo
Strike a pose with your beloved as you twin in a unisex t-shirt and joggers outfit. Play with the colours by pairing a neutral with a bright one and let the pop of colour exude a cheerful and energetic vibe to a rather casual ensemble. Perfect for running errands, a movie date or casual outings, don't forget to take loads of selfies to capture your twinning memory!
7. Joggers at a wedding? Yes, please!
Wondering if you read that right? Yes, you did and we saved the best for the last! Thanks to uber-cool Indian designers, we have a plethora of wedding-ready jogger sets available out there! This kaftan-jogger by Payal Singhal is our absolute favourite. The chevron print, draw-string hemline, and embroidered neckline bring together the most perfect athleisure Indian ensemble! We urge you to try this style for the next big fat Indian wedding.
Pro tip: Ditch the heavy earrings and wear a maang tikka for an added touch of Indianness with this look!
Whether you're hitting the gym, running errands, looking for the perfect travel look or simply lounging around on a lazy Sunday, joggers have got your back! So slip into these fashion marvels and get on the comfort-meets-style bandwagon!
