STYLE GURU STYLE: Justifying Joggers

Lately, I’ve found myself being a huge sucker for joggers. Not only are they my go-to loungewear, but now they are my favorite evening look.

During a recent shopping trip, I scored myself an army-style jogger pant, which featured the same cinched ankle and drawstring waist you would see on those you might wear to bed. However, the piece transitioned into an evening look with the pocket details that gave it a structured look, as well as the fabric which resembled a polyester feel. I took it upon myself to style this urban pant for a night on the town.

I wanted to keep the edgy feel that the pants gave off, so I steered towards a rather overall dark and daring look. For my top, I tucked in a sheer dotted top that would show some skin, but kept it classy by pairing that top with a simple black bodysuit. For a more sultry feel, I would have swapped the bodysuit with a lace bralette. To add some much-needed sparkle to such basic pieces, I added my favorite coin necklace that brings a statement to any look. It’s essential to all of my evening looks to always have a light jacket on hand because I never know where the night might take me. I threw on this copper colored leather jacket to add some color to the outfit. Now, to the shoes to finish off this evening look. I reached for my cutout pointed toe heels to keep the outfit clean and tied together. These shoes have a thick heel which I absolutely adore because comfort is so necessary for any nighttime look.

I’m obsessed with the versatility that this outfit has. There are so many diverse pieces that come together to create a bold look. I think mixing and matching items from your closet can be so rewarding and you’d be surprised how you can highlight basic pieces like the jogger. The jogger pants were recently know as loungewear, and now known as an evening piece.
