How to Wear Joggers in Public




I'm not going to lie, the original title of this post was "How to Wear Joggers and not Look like an Idiot." While I happen to think that title still works pretty well, I want to keep things positive and uplifting on PPD. The result was something a little more helpful. 

I've always steered clear of the jogger trend. For one, I am short, so finding a pair the appropriate length was challenging. For another, they can look rather slouchy rather quickly if you're not careful. How do you combat that? Add something that gives a bit of definition. You could wear a tailored top or a blazer if you're really kicking it up a notch, or you could add a casual jacket with a defined waist, like I did here. The result made these comfy pants look a lot more pulled together, don't you think? Plus, snazzy gold sneakers, rather than running shoes, kept things casual but fun.

While I spent this particular day posing throughout the Beltline with my friend (and super talented photographer) Amber, I could definitely see myself wearing joggers and a t-shirt to actually walk the trails. Then to hit up brunch easily after, all I would have to do is add my go-to jacket. 

The joggers and t-shirt seen here are from Atlanta's own Alternative Apparel, a company dedicated to comfort, simplicity, and sustainability. They recently opened a store at Ponce City Market which is full of all kinds of comfy but chic goodness, and I know it will become a staple for me as I explore this side of my style more.
