I truly was in a sweat when I headed to the checkout counter with these pants, dear readers…what was I doing with a pair of joggers in my hands?!
This style was “not for me” for the longest time; but as it so often happens with matters of fashion, they’d slowly been growing more and more appealing. I’ll admit to trying on a random pair over the past few months; but the silhouette and gathered waistband are definitely a bit tricky…and until now, I hadn’t found any that were even remotely flattering.
Now “flattering” is a relative term here; after all, this kind of slouchy fit doesn’t do much to enhance the figure. But the darker panel of fabric on each side narrows them just a little visually…and together with the piping detail, it gives them almost a tuxedo pant feel, don’t you think??
And the clincher?? I found them at Forever 21 for a grand total of $23.80…that’s less than a pair of real sweatpants at an athletics store!! Now that’s the way to make a super-trendy look your own!!
(P.S. I checked online…but unfortunately, these particular joggers don’t seem to be available anymore. You never know, though; you might still be able to find them at your local Forever 21!!)
