Many of us virtually live to combine eye-catching fashion pieces to create that one delectable outfit. But I think it’s also safe to say, there are some items in particular that we favor more than others. For me, that one item is joggers! I think it’s simply one of the greatest inventions to ever exist! Some may know this, some may not, but, in the early 2000s when skinny jeans came about and became a prominent fashion trend, there were pretty much only two ways to wear them- either the bottoms double-folded upwards and over your high-top sneakers, or the bottoms double-folded downwards inserted into your jeans. On the other hand, sweatpants existed, and people wore (some still do from time-to-time) them to the gym, to the store, or just around the house (never to really be seen in; unless the sweatpants involved a hoodie or sweatshirt and became a sweat outfit). But their sole purpose were to be warm and comfortable. I actually remember thinking to myself, “why couldn’t sweatpants be more stylish and desirable to wear, like jeans? Why couldn’t they fold at the bottom; where I could tuck them into my sneakers and walk around with the same type of swag that I do with skinny jeans?” But that question didn’t last for long, because the solution was then made…joggers!! I absolutely love joggers and could probably wear it almost everyday with almost anything I own! I love them because they give you the warmth and comfort of sweatpants (especially in the freezing seasons like fall and winter, where it’s either raining rivers or dropping truck loads of ice-cold snow), yet, the style of skinny jeans. They’re comfortable enough to move around and work out in, yet stylish enough to be seen and ￼noticed (depending on which ones you buy)!! I honestly can’t work out without them- and which ones I wear depends on my mood. For example, if I’m working out, I may just wear some plain gray or maroon ones, but if I’m opting to go out and make a statement, then i’ll throw on a pair that turn heads and break necks. I’m talking about these- the ones posted in the featured picture above.
Now these particular joggers (my current favorite) aren’t available anymore, but there are a myriad of other great ones out there to suit virtually all tastes! These specific one’s costed me around $120, which was a little steep, but not at all deterring because the moment I seen these, I knew they had to somehow land in my closet. The look and feel is pretty much unparalleled to any other pair I have ever encountered. I mean, It’s absolutely crazy the amount of stares and questions i’d get when wearing these particular joggers. But the funny thing is, that’s not even my most favorite thing about them- my most favorite thing about them is their texture. They’re made up of two different materials- suede, and pleather (imitation leather). The front and back where the flowers are is suede, and on the sides are strips of white pleather. At the very bottom; on the sides are golden zippers to get in and out of the joggers with ease. No lie, these are true neck breakers!
Now I paired them with one of my most favorite sneakers- these limited edition maroon Maison Margielas high-tops!! If you’d like to know more about that, stay tuned for my next post! 😉
