ALL IN THE DETAILS: "Jogging" In Neutrals And Espadrilles

Unless you have lost your eyesight, you must know that jogger pants have been “jogging” their way through the seasons. Paired with booties and moto jackets in the winter, pastels in the spring and minimalist T-shirts in the summer, they can be worn during any season. The trick to pulling off jogger pants throughout the year is to appropriately match them with pieces that are characteristic of the current season. In fact, I would argue that accessorizing your joggers properly is even more important than the style of the joggers pants themselves. Regardless of whether your jogger pants are black Egyptian cotton, denim or splattered with paisley, the shoes that you choose to wear with them ultimately create the vibe of your look.

When I found this Fashionista strolling around campus, my glance was lured in by her lace up espadrilles. Juxtaposed with olive green jogger pants, the black ribbons of her espadrilles just barely met the cinched hem. I loved how the neutrals in her outfit subtly nodded to the popular color-blocking trend. Even though eccentric prints seem to dominate the jogger pants market, wearing a neutral version in a firmer fabric allows you to appreciate the outfit as a whole instead of becoming distracted by one part of the outfit.

All in all, this outfit perfectly encompasses the balance between trendy and practical. So, the next time you look at the lack of prints in your wardrobe, take it as an opportunity to mix and match!

How To: Lace up your espadrilles and fasten your cargo pockets for a relaxed summer look. Relax your look with a white T-shirt, and you are ready for a fashionable stroll around campus.
