Now that warmer weather is here, it’s time to be more active outdoors. Or, at least look the part – because a pair of these will look great anytime, anywhere.

The Rules

DOS

  • Really expand your shoe game
    Joggers with your favorite sneakers is an instant win. But they also work with more formal options like leather dress shoes.
  • Street rat
    All in all, this is still a streetwear staple. So, you can basically add anything from the genre into the combo: t-shirts, track jackets, sweaters and even denim jackets.
  • Smart casual
    Jogger pants have gone beyond street style. Mix it with a tailored shirt or a snazzy blazer.

DONT’S

  • Formal affairs
    Please think twice before you go to anything even remotely formal wearing joggers. You don’t want anyone to think you’re being disrespectful.
  • Upsize
    Sure, oversized streetwear is all the rage now. but trust us that you don’t want to look like a clown wearing baggy pants with tight elastic openings at the bottom.
  • Necktie
    Pairing a blazer with joggers is risky, but it still works. but stop at that. Adding anything more dressy, especially ties, will simply not work with these kind of pants.
