5 REASONS TO ROCK THE JOGGER PANT

Hey All! I just arrived back home yesterday and as usual I am POOPED! Glad to be back home though. I traveled to South Texas as I hadn't spent 4th of July with my family in 3 years!!! It was definitely overdue! Needless to say I had a great time :-)

As the weather gets warmer and hotter, I have been grabbing for my easy-to-wear jogger pants. I'll admit, I was not fond of this trend originally. I thought jogger pants were more for ...well... jogging. However, that was NOT the case. These kind of jogger pants, are definitely for styling. If you have been curious about jogger pants, these are my reason why you should give them a try!

  1. Comfort

Jogger pants are SO comfortable! You know how people talk about their go-to "fat pants"? Jogger pants are the perfect "fat-pants" if you need a little bit more room because of their elasticity around the waist. Sometimes, denim jeans are not enough for when we need a little more wiggle room.

2. Affordable

Jogger pants come in different price points. You can literally find them almost any retail store. If you are a woman in your late 20's to early 30's or older, you are better off with sticking to neutral tones, or solid lines. Stay away from cutesie prints such as flowers or paisley as they might not look appropriate with the overall look.

3. Better than skinny jeans!

Jogging pants are a great alternative to skinny or straight leg jeans. Some jogging pants tapper at the ankle, while others drop straight down. Either way, they are slightly fitted which elongate the legs, appearing taller and leaner.  This is the same effect skinny jeans give as well.

4. Dress them up or down

The great thing about Jogger pants is that you can dress them up with wedges, clogs, and heels in the summer or ankle booties in the winter! Dress them down with a knit tee, and sandals and you're good to go! You can even get creative with Jogger pants by utilizing blazers with unique zippers or print tops with layered jewelry.

5. Not your regular Jogging pants

Jogger pants are definitely a step up from the pants you wear to the gym! These are loose, better quality, stylish, fun, and trendy. They are pants you don't want to work out in, but go out with! They are the perfect pants that fall in-between workout wear, and jeans.
