Athleisure Outfit: How to Style (Faux) Leather Joggers

Athleisure Outfit inspiration - How to Style Faux Leather Joggers - She Sweats Diamonds - Nike Pegasus women's - black cat eye sunglasses

Surprise! An outfit post from me?! Why yes, yes it is! It’s been awhile since I’ve explored my personal style so I thought I’d share with you guys a look I styled with a trend I’m loving: joggers. I’m not one who into trying trends too much as my fashion tastes are more classic and edgy looks with a feminine touch. However, I figured I’d give joggers a go while exploring my styling capabilities.

As this is first my athleisure outfit without looking like I’m actually going to the gym, I like how the look came together.

Here are some tips on how you can recreate this look, but with your own flair:

KEEP THE COLOR PALETTE SIMPLE

When trying a new-to-you outfit, keep the color combination simple for a more pulled together look. In this case, I went with the classic no-fail black and white! It’s best to ease into a style you’re trying out with colors that are familiar to you.

SHOOT FOR VARIOUS TEXTURES

Instead of the sweatpants fabric joggers are typically made with, I shot for a little edge (per usual) by going with a faux leather. For the rest of the outfit, I went with a cotton jacket with rose gold zippers and a basic yet fitted tank top. Doing this helps the faux leather joggers to stand out and pop a bit more.

TRY AN UNFINISHED LOOK

For an athleisure look, you don’t want to wear items the way they are made. What I mean is to play around with your garments. For a more relaxed vibe, try pushing back sleeves, pulling up your pant legs, and keeping your jacket open. That way, you look pulled together, but in an effortless way!

For this look, I wanted an easy look anyone can recreate. If you’ve got a black tank top, black and white sneakers, and regular or (faux) leather joggers in your closet, this outfit would still work for you.

On a side note, I’m not not sure where I stand in terms of faux leather or real leather. I don’t know which type is best for the environment. For now, I’m going to stick to faux leather. However, I promise to report back as I look more into this topic.

Let me know if you end up copying this look and how you like/don’t like it! I know athleisure looks aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I like it! Stay tuned for a second way to style these joggers in the coming weeks!
