Style and Spoons

Being stylish and chronically ill can be pretty hard. I’m guilty of falling back on sweatpants and a tee shirt so much that if I were a cartoon character, that’s what I would be drawn wearing. Now I know I’ve talked a lot about Joggers in the past, but I never talked about how to style them. So let’s look at how I’m wearing them!

Joggers are an exercise pant in theory, so there’s nothing better than the combo of a loose tank, tight Joggers, and some cute tennis shoes. Whether you’re running errands or running a mile, this look will get you around town with no problem.

However, if you’re feeling a little more boho, try styling joggers the same way you would normally wear palazzo pants. I like to add a bright top to a pair of loose joggers for a great look- bright printed Joggers get compliments everywhere I go, making this perfect for a Sunday at the farmer’s market or a local cafe. You could also add a tight tank and a loose kimono or cardigan.

Shoes are make it or break it with Joggers. I like my Tevas with the boho look. However, if I’m styling it up with a cute top, especially a peplum (a bright pink one from Rue 21 is currently my favorite to pair with some slim-fit grey joggers) a pair of cute flats is a must. Pairing casual Joggers with a dressy top is a bold move, but if you do it right, it’s a great one! (Plus peplum hides bloating, perfect for those prednisone months or any time you’re having stomach symptoms.)

Clothes that are cute and comfy are a necessity in anyone’s wardrobe, but especially the chronically ill. I feel a lot better when I look cute!
