Let the countdown to spring and all the standout colors spring will bring begin! I’ve certainly been enjoying the continued brightening of colors every fashion season for the past few years. They’re getting brighter and more cheerful every year and offer so much incentive to start color blocking.
I believe strongly in dressing for our current realities, which for many of us means we’re home a lot more than usual. My loungewear and smart casual wardrobe has expanded accordingly. Just when I was getting bored with joggers, brands began making them feel fresh again with colorful options. When I saw my absolute favorite pair of joggers at the moment (this style from Tarjay) drop in a few new colors, I snagged them quickly.
What I’m wearing:
Seriously, I vouch for the Joy Lab french terry joggers. This new purple pair (and the coral one I bought with it) rounds out my collection of 6 of them. Yes, 6 pairs. It’s curve-flattering fit and the 7/8 length for me! There’s something special about the fabric too. It feels soft, it’s machine washable and dry-able, and it’s durable. I wear and wash them weekly, and there’s no pilling or snagging or fading. When you find such a gem, you stock up.
For a little spring color play, I paired the purple joggers with a blue sweater (see the sweater style in green worn here). These shades of purple and blue are analogous colors, making them mix well together. My navy blue blazer from Zara worked well as an additional layer for warmth and for dressing up the casual separates.
