Jogging bottoms have long been considered, for the lack of a better word, scruffy. But of course, 2020 has meant track pants have had a banner year, thanks to plenty of us working from home and in need of comforting pieces to wear. The good news is that some of our favourite dressers have been championing the athleisure look for some time now, with genuinely chic ideas on how to wear the humble jogger. I've spent some time working out their formulas and there seems to be a common denominator: They've all opted for classic or neutral tones. Think black, navy, camel, cream and grey. A well-chosen coat and cool footwear also go a long way to making the humble jogger look impossibly refined, as does a gold chain necklace. Keep scrolling to see how to wear jogging bottoms like a fashion girl, then proceed to shop our favourite pairs below.
Style Notes: If there's one thing we know about making jogging bottoms look super elevated it's adding a pair of heels, especially if they're bright like these on Tiffany Hsu.
