How to Style Joggers for SS20

April 22, 2020

Newsflash: there’s one key piece on the high street that fashionistas are currently going crazy for.

Is this because of nineties nostalgia? Or is it because we simply can’t get enough of comfy clothing while the country is in lockdown?

Either way, they’re selling out as soon as they’re listed on our favourite retailers’ websites — and show no signs of going out of style. If anything, their popularity only continues to peak.

Step forward, jogging bottoms (or “sweatpants” if you’re American). 

But not just any jogging bottoms — joggers that are oversized, made from cotton and cuffed at the ankle.

(You know the type. They’re all over your Instagram feed!)

Whether you’re already a fan or you’re only just kickstarting your loungewear love affair, read on to find out how to style joggers for the Spring/Summer 2020 season — and beyond.

1. With a Fitted Top

How to style joggers 101: because SS20 joggers are baggy, you can easily balance them out with a fitted top.

From cosy Henleys to bold bodysuits, this combo is ideal for FaceTiming the girls or tackling those work Zoom calls.

Just pick a bright, on-trend hue (like lime green, tangerine orange or rose pink) and pair it with layered jewellery for a fun, smart-casual look.

2. With a Co-Ordinating Sweatshirt

If you’re planning to laze around the house or nip out to your local supermarket, wearing a cute loungewear set is a wonderful idea.

Plus, you can tie your outfit into SS20 and nod to the nineties even further by teaming your oversized joggers with a loose, cropped sweatshirt.

Feeling shy? No problem —  just stick to a neutral colour (like grey, stone, white or black) until you build up your confidence.

Now, that’s what I call co-ordinated perfection in fashion form.

3. With a Crop Top and Plaid Shirt

Finally, do you need a joggers outfit that still works for informal occasions as the weather gets warmer?

Then look no further than the crop top (with short sleeves or simple straps). 

If there’s a cool breeze, you could always add an oversized plaid shirt but leave it open for an effortlessly cool aesthetic.

How to Style Joggers: The Big No-No

Even though joggers are popular on the street style scene and look super stylish as an everyday outfit, they’re not usually suitable for dressier events.

If you want to wear joggers for a night OUT out, pick a more luxurious fabric (like faux leather). Then team them with a fitted top and strappy heels to truly stop traffic.

Otherwise, keep your joggers in your casual wardrobe only. 

Personally, I’m building a cotton collection in a multitude of colours. And I couldn’t be more obsessed.
