Can joggers ever be smart?


Despite the somewhat negative connotations attached to the ‘leisurewear’ item, their popularity has increased in recent years, with high-end and high -street designers taking the plunge and transforming the casual to contemporary.

Topman have pulled together two key looks for the forthcoming transitional season using this ‘must have’ fashion staple.

If there’s one trend you need in your wardrobe this AW, it’s pinstripes. It’s set to be the next the next best thing since sliced bread, so if you don’t have anything pinstriped in your wardrobe, then this is your first fashion alert!

Topshop’s, Dan Holdsworth has perfectly styled this day to night look using pinstriped joggers, a white grandad collar muscle fit shirt, and black leather mantis loafers. This look incorporates comfort and will take you from desk to date night.

Looking for a more laid back but sophisticated look? Then why not replace the grandad collar muscle fit shirt for a long sleeve waffle t-shirt and white slim fit t-shirt. Trend alert number two, layering will be massive this AW, so by combining the pinstriped joggers and layered mix, you’ll be at the forefront of fashion.

Finish the look with a Converse plimsoll or Topman own brand trainers.
