We’ve all had those days when nothing would feel better than bed hair and comfy clothes. Thanks to joggers, turns out, you don’t need to quash the feeling and dress up to show up. B-town celebs like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Malaika Arora swear by simple toned down numbers while Jacqueline Fernandez, Disha Patani and Niddhi Aggerwal are often spotted in shimmery and snazzier versions. That said, why have prominent names from the fashion fraternity taken a liking to this workout gear? Well, the popular workout staple does double duty – and pegged as the next ‘wardrobe go-to’, especially in terms of comfort and chic factor. City fashionistas and designers give us their take...
“Joggers is basically all about comfort. But it’s always nice to give the workout attire a chic upgrade. The best way to do that is to team the joggers up with a bomber jacket, especially metallic jackets make a great statement,” begins city designer Devika Kalia, who adds, “A boxy crop top looks great with a pair of joggers paired with nice sneakers. Tie your hair up casually and stick to no or bare minimal makeup.” While the look works well for a casual daytime affair, some experts are of the opinion that a little styling can take the look from a casual to party. City designer Prerana Sarkar adds, “A big fringe jacket and a scarf or a trucker goes well with a jogger. For en embellished party look, wear a beautiful off shoulder top and throw over a midriff crop crew neck sweater with it. If you want to give yourself a indo-western look, wear a Georgette straight cut kurti with a jogger and to add on wear a pair of bellies with it to look trendy.”
For stylist Nicole Madan, it’s all about getting it right with the colour combos and sticking to a basic appeal. “While it’s okay to go all about with bold and in-your-face hues, my vote goes to the classic combo of a plain white t shirt with snug fit joggers. A monochrome look by going all grey is also a win-win for a sharp movie date look. The easiest way to put together a smart look is by a throwing over a statement sweater.”
