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 then I swore to myself that I would never jog again.

Of course, 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.

The Leather Trend

Well, leather is a big trend right now. Thus, when I saw the new leather joggers trend, I had to have them. When you are a regular reader, you know I love clothing made from the hides. I have featured leather clothing in various posts, for instance,

How to Style 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 making use of how to wear the black and white trend. Watch out how I will style my new closet favorite next time.

Polo and Joggers Make a Cool Weekend Look

Polo shirts scream weekend all over. This outfit is great for a Friday evening dinner on a deck with friends. The leather jogging pants are comfy, but still look sophisticated and elegant. Another plus for the leather joggers is that the mosquitoes cannot drill through them. The heels give away my love for street style. The floral scarf adds a punch of color. One just has to take care that it does not blow onto the plate 😉 . The trick is to pin it to the shirt.

The striped cardigan is just in case that it gets chilly before you are willing to go. As the stripes are slightly wider the cardigan does not look stiff like a twinset with the polo shirt.

Stay in style also on the weekend. Click To Tweet

What Outerwear Goes with Leather Jogging Pants?

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. Read more about how to wear black and brown together in this post at the link.
