The Jeans Alternative: Joggers

You guys know by now that I live for a good casual look. 99.9% of the time, that means jeans. Jeans with sneakers. Jeans with loafers. Jeans with booties. Even jeans with heels. I love jeans and I tend to wear the same few pairs over and over again. It’s gotten to the point where Brandon has threatened to throw out my black high waisted pair because I wear them at least twice a week. Oops.

As much as I love my denim, I have come to the realization that I need to switch things up a bit. Joggers have been around for a while and I know they’re nothing new or trendy…but the time has come. I’m officially on board. I was a little hesitant at first but got to the point where I would wear my joggers-style sweatpants around the house or while traveling. Until recently, I wasn’t totally in to wearing them with more styled looks. Well that has changed.

I scored these black joggers during a recent shopping haul and can’t stop won’t stop wearing them. I love these simple and classic style joggers and think they serve as the perfect base for any look, casual or dressy, which got me thinking. Can joggers by my new jeans alternative? I’m thinking yet…here’s why.


Reason No. 1 | They’re comfy. Way more comfy than jeans. That is actually the thing I hate most about my denim – they’re not always the most comfortable option. I tend to lean more towards a high waisted style which usually means a little discomfort. when I started wearing joggers in their place…well let’s just say it’s sort of like wearing pjs all day. I love it.

Reason No. 2 | They’re chic. There is something about a chic pair of joggers paired with a trench coat or blazer that jus screams style. They’re a modern take on a looser fitting trend and I’m totally a fan.

Reason No. 3 | They’re versatile. Dressed up with a lightweight coat and heels and you’ve got the perfect look for a lunch meeting. Dress them down with sneakers and a tee shirt + jean jacket combo and you’re good to go for brunch. Try swapping out your fitted trousers or pencil skirt at the office with a pair of joggers and a breezy blouse. So. Many. Options.

    Great look! I’ve seen jogger pants becoming more stylish these days compared to when they were just old sweats. I love how women are styling them and making them more chic.
