How to Style Denim Joggers
The secret to cool, casual comfort – while you’re looking stylish AF – for your back-to-school days or making a quiet return to the office, are jeans that have the feel of fleece joggers with the killer look of denim combined in one perfect item of clothing. Enter denim joggers.
Are Denim Joggers in Style?
Denim joggers are the latest fashion trend. The hip-hugging pants have been popping up on the runways for years, and now they're finally starting to catch on in real life.
You may be wondering whether you should invest in a pair of denim joggers or not. After all, it's not every day that a pair of pants becomes so popular that you can't escape them in stores or on social media. But if you're looking for a way to spice up your wardrobe (and keep it casual), then denim joggers might just be the answer.
A Deeper Look to Jogger Pants
Like your favourite pair of weekend lounge pants, these dressier joggers have an elastic waistband (most with a drawstring), as well as elasticized cuffs at the ankles that are awesome to show off the latest sneaker drop you have on rotation. The relaxed fit of jogger jeans is definitely comfy, but they still have those tapered legs that are closer to the body so they give you a much more sophisticated silhouette and put together style. Just add a T-shirt and blazer, or even a button-down shirt under a denim jacket – did anybody say, ‘Canadian tuxedo’? – and you’re ready to go bar-hopping with the boys!
It’s All in the Details
If you're searching for denim joggers, it's important to find a style that suits your tastes and lifestyle. Much like your go-to jeans, denim joggers come in a variety of styles, from dressed up to completely easygoing. Find yours in different fabrics and finishes, including rips and different levels of distress, moto cut, sewed-on details and patches, cargo pockets, as well as whiskering, the technical term for those thin fading lines formed from creases usually on the front pocket area of the jeans.
Flex for Stretch
To give you the added level of comfort you love while remaining dressier, the most popular jean joggers are made from Flex denim. This super stretch fabric is woven with about 2% elastane (also known as Spandex or Lycra), which gives it an amazing flexibility while retaining its shape. So even if you’re super built and have impressive calves and thighs, you’ll still feel like you have room to move. Women will tell you that Flex denim joggers feel almost the same as walking around in a pair of leggings...
The French Touch…
If you’re looking to max out your level of comfort even more in your denim joggers, cozy denim is the way to go. Basically, these jeans are on par with those run-down sweatpants you just can’t quit wearing. Why? They’re made from French terry knit, that gives you the rugged look of denim but with the softness and coziness of fleece.
With a clever combination of cotton (for coolness), polyester (for durability) and spandex (for the added stretch), the fabric from French terry cozy denim joggers is heavier than the one for your typical T-shirt but lighter than the classic sweatpants. Which means they’re super versatile and can keep you cool on those hot days and warmer for that cooler fall weather.
Now it’s your turn to snap up those smart denim joggers that will make you look dressed up while providing the comfort level you’ve grown to love working from home.
