Wondering how to style joggers for work? We don't blame you. This comfortable piece of loungewear has become a fixture in many a work-from-home wardrobe and if you're wondering how to translate this level of comfort into your regular office 9-5, we've got good news for you, it's totally doable. 

Transforming your best joggers into office-ready attire is easier than you might think. Post lockdown, athleisure styles have become a permanent fashion trend and as part of this shift towards dressing for comfort, joggers have found themselves at the front of the makeover queue. While the joggers you wear for carrying out chores shouldn't be making an appearance in the boardroom in the near future, the cut and comfort elements from joggers have been woven into more polished iterations of the silhouette that are totally ready for your 9-5. 

When it comes to how to style joggers for work, the answer is all about creating a balanced look, and by adding more polished and tailored pieces to your joggers, you can easily make them more office-appropriate. The other thing to look out for is color and fabrication. Opt for darker washes and fabrics that are closer to tailored styles - such as wool blends, that will naturally appear more polished, even with a cuffed ankle and a stretch waist. Lastly, think about your footwear. Switch sneakers for heels, or a sharp loafer to ensure this look is more on time than about beating your PB time.
