Many men make the sordid mistake of wearing jogger pants or sweat pants. Some use it in the four corners of their office without pairing it properly, while others don on the clothing while running or jogging down the street. It is, after all, jogger pants.
Fortunately wearing jogger pants is a tad bit simple. These pair of pants can be used in all types of moods, cutting across different classes of people and personalities. Whether with the debonair, the casual or the suave look, jogger pants are versatile pieces and can bring out the best in you – if you know how. Here are ways to wear jogger pants in style.
Nothing beats a white T-shirt and a light pair of jogger pants. When it comes to the casual look, grab a crew cut T-shirt and pair it with a dark-coloured jogger pants. Go for the monotone look or a plain black T-shirt which symbolizes a clean slate. If you want to don on a more vibrant colour, experiment with patterns and shades and go for a bright top while retaining a more neutral look. For instance you can wear brown jogger pants while wearing a blue top. Too many colours, patterns or hues can just ruin or distract the whole ensemble from the true meaning of casual. This is best fit during birthday celebrations or partying with friends. Going to school or going to work (if you don’t have a dress code) also suits this style.
If you opt for the smart casual facade which takes you away from the streets into your offices or informal meetings, look for a T-shirt that perfectly fits you to a Tee with a good material such as 100% cotton and pair it with slim and fit corduroy jogger pants. Not too fit, though, as it may look like leggings – not ideal for men. Slip a pair of slip-ons and then you are ready to go.
For the casual look, wear a short-sleeved polo shirt, very much versatile and can be worn any time of the day in any season whether summer or rainy season. Buttoned up, half button, open, with the sleeves rolled down or with it rolled up, you have different options to choose from. When it comes to a smart look, you can wear a short-sleeved polo atop jogger pants with light colours and then finish this off by slipping on some boat shoes. Wear a cap to finish off the look.
As for the smart casual look, wear a neat long-sleeved shirt and pair your jogger pants with a trim loafer which makes you a little bit relaxed and comfortable. Use casual footwear to go with the look and you can never go wrong.
With POLO SHIRTS
Polo shirts are once worn as a sports attire so it is no wonder that pairing this with jogger pants can bring on that amazing aura. In order to lessen that intense appearance, use jogger pants that are of lighter colour. For instance match a white polo shirt with grey jogger pants or maybe a plain blue polo shirt with grey jogger pants.
If you are the sporty type who often likes to walk or maybe run around the neighbourhood, this one’s for you.
THE DENIM JACKET
The denim jacket is one of the trickiest outfits in the book since it can make or break you. Use the wrong colour and your look can appear like a mesh of hues without any flair or panache. In order to work on this look properly and if you want to go for the casual attire, don on a light-pair of denim jacket that reaches to your hips – while using a dark-coloured jogger pants. If you think your outfit is too neat, too composed or too formal, you can distress it a little to create that grungier vibe.
Now with blazers – which is a versatile garment – try to keep the upper half of your body casual-looking because anything formal can’t match well with your jogger pants. You can use the same colour but similar shades. For a more formal look, use a tie or a more casual one, use a bonnet as an accessory.
