Do Denim Joggers (Part 3)

Do Denim Joggers (Part 3)

Last but certainly not least to the “Do Denim Joggers” series is this casual attire that has comfort written ALLOVER it! This ensemble is perfect for running errands on a dull day with the plimsolls and the tote. The turtleneck will keep you warm, whilst the headwrap is a stylish accessory to the entire look.

The purpose of this whole series was to find a constructive way and budget friendly approach to wear denim joggers. Not only that, but as the writer I felt frustrated that I couldn't find lookbooks online or outfit posts on how to style denim joggers, so the best resolution was for me to create something for the blog. Not only that, but I also had a fun time experimenting with looks and potential ideas for the upcoming A/W season! I hope these series have inspired you in some way to work with denim joggers without wearing them once. Whether sporty, edgy, chic or just laid back; denim joggers can have the same effect that silk/drawstring joggers can do, but with just a different fabric texture.

For just a quick recap, here is a look back at the first two series HERE and HERE.

Do Denim Joggers (Part 2)

This ensemble borderlines an African rendition with a contemporary twist. The print headwrap with the black and gold choker resemble the “African” rendition at the back of my mind. Whilst the vintage safari shirt stands out between an African outback experience or your modern recall of a vintage shirt; whichever suits your fancy. The contemporary twist lies in the pastel sunglasses, red heels, AndEdgy white stud clutch and the studded belt that provides the cinched-in waist.

Simplicity is KEY! and not much jewellery is required to state the obvious. I could see this look being the perfect excuse to edge up an evening with the girls or a fun outdoor-tsy event (minus the heels of course). Whichever way you interpret this look, one or two pieces can be removed to suit your persona, without compromising the construction it has to the jogger denim.
