Sweat pants back then

As a kid and teenager, I did not like jogging pants at all. I associated them with the weekly Saturday jogging up the moraine thru the deciduous forest that topped the moraine, and back home with my sister and Dad. I hated jogging, found it extremely boring, and unpleasant for my feet and ankles. Wearing high heels to school all time, and walking in heels every day for about 45 minutes had my legs adapted to heels. As of today, my feet hurt and legs hurt when I wear flats for a prolonged time. Actually, I can catch a bus in heels, but not in flats. Anyhow, back them I swore to myself that I would never jog again, and it did not even occur to me that I would one day buy a pair of jogging pants. What for, I would have asked back then.

Jogger pants trend

Well when I saw the new leather joggers trend, I had to have them. I love leather and featured leather clothing in various posts, for instanst, wearing a leather shell with a suede skirt, styling a maxi leather skirt, a long leather coat, a leather sheath styled as skirt, and even a leather suit.

Styling of jogger leather pants

I think leather is the only way joggers looks great, or even better: stunning. Here they are: I wore them with white high heels (of course), and a white cashmere sweater. Watch out how I will style my new closet favorite next time.

Styling my outerwear

For the commute to work, I wore a vintage coat with stripes, and my leopard print satchel. I had to break the old fashion rule not to wear brown and black together. I just like the edginess of doing it. It works because the bag and coat repeat both have black and brown shades.
