Help me style cuffed joggers

(14 Posts)

I've bought some charcoal slim fitting cuffed joggers but I'm not totally sure how to style them. I'm 5'10" size 8 and 48. My work place has a 'dress to express' dress code so I could probably wear them for work as well as outside work. Last night I tried them on with a white vest, black jersey blazer and suede court shoes which I think worked.

What else can I try?

Do you have a link? The joggers that i wear are for slobbing out in front of the telly but I'm guessing thats not the kind you mean! grin

Baukjen sell them and I think their catalogue contains some good images of how to style them. Maybe worth having a look at their website/lookbook? Have you tried Pinterest as well for ideas?

Can't link from my tablet Wilbur - will post when am on laptop.

I would probably also wear them slobbing at home aswell grin

Thanks for the Baukjen tip frankie. Just seen a picture in the H&M catalogue styled with a boxy top - not my usual shape but I will have to try it.

This is me wearing them with the white vest, black jersey blazer and black suede pointy low court shoes.

I think boxy tops might work well but don't really have any. Going to have a root through my wardrobe and see what other outfits I can come up with.

Ooh they're nice smile. Where are they from?

That looks really lovely! I wear mine with a plain vestie and leather jacket. too

You look great. I second the Baukjen suggestion or perhaps hush for more ideas.

Yep in the summer I teamed them with a lace blouse, and ash pumps, or heels. And a black cotton blazer for work.

hettie they are from Next. These are Tall but also come in other lengths.

Some other outfits with different footwear to follow...

These are my most boxy tops. Think the spotty one is too long. Like the shoe boots (shame they hurt my feet). Like the green jumper best - proportions are right I think.

I'd like a pair, but can I ask whether they go saggy at the knee at all? I'm worried that would happen after sitting at a desk for any length of time.

I like the green jumper combo the best.
I just can't get my head round cuffs and a heel though. I'd probably go with a slogan tee tucked in the front slightly and some acid NBs.

But you do look lovely in every photo!

Yes to the green jumper outfit.
