Athleisure, as a fashion trend, has seen a rise in popularity over the years. Celebrities, from Kim Kardashian to Kareena Kapoor, prefer to wear sweatpants to skinny jeans. Joggers, common types of sweatpants are comfortable and versatile. Will you look like a celebrity after wearing them? Nobody knows. Would you be too comfortable to care? Definitely, yes. What if we told you that you don’t have to get rid of your joggers to look put together and chic?

We have got just the right hacks for you to try and dress up your pair of women joggers, so that you can go from ‘meh’ to ‘meh in heels’…

Fit matters

One of the most important things to remember while trying to give the illusion that you still have everything together while wearing a pair of joggers at home is to look for a good fit. Baggy sweats might be cosier and more comfortable, but there’s no way you can convince anyone at the grocery store that you are not going to go back home and slide into your bed while watching Masterchef reruns.

Ditch the sneakers

Joggers are usually a laidback item of clothing. But you can comfortably dress them up by slipping on a pair of heels with them, instead of sneakers or flip-flops. Before you argue that heels are the opposite of comfortable, follow these hacksPumps or stilettos will make you look more put together and give people the illusion that you have not given up.

Go monochromatic

A monochromatic colour palette with your jogger ensemble is a simple way to say ‘I might go to the gym or I might not, you will never know’. It is a quick and easy way to look stylish. If you want to know what colours will go best with your skin tone, here’s a quick guide to doing so.

Accessorize with some jewellery

It’s a global pandemic. The concept of time and days has become relative. Or so you tell yourself when you step out of the house wearing sweatpants that you’ve been wearing for the past week. If you didn’t suddenly crave a sandwich, you wouldn’t have had to go out anyway. But you want bread, and you’re going out to get some. A quick and easy way to amp up your look is to throw on some jewellery. A chunky bracelet or some layered necklaces can make a world of difference.

Dressy blouse

Instead of a slogan tee or an oversized hoodie, try pairing your joggers with a dressy blouse or a button-down shirt. A stylish top will be enough to distract people from wondering why you’re wearing gym wear at 1 pm on a Wednesday afternoon. You can also layer up a solid coloured top with a denim shirt or a jacket to create an interesting look. A top that has a bold print, or a contrasting colour, will also help in elevating the look.
