Basics Series: Joggers

 

Back to Basics is a weekly series focused on how to wear and where to buy the 50 most important – and perhaps only – items you need in your wardrobe. Read the intro and get the full checklist here. 

 

What 

Jersey drawstring joggers 

Why 

The ultimate in comfort and versatility 

WHEN

Wear when traveling (esp. during long flights, drives, or train rides), working from home, or running quick errands. 

How 

Make the mistake of purchasing sweatpants and you'll end up looking dumpy and shapeless. Aim for a smart relaxed look with premium jersey fabric in a well-constructed slim fit.  Pair with a tissue tee, slightly oversized sweater or thin overcoat, and flats or sneakers.
