I’m occasionally surprised by how my style has changed over time. Years ago, my go-to outfit would be a plaid shirt and jeans with a leather jacket. I would seldom reach for athletic wear and I was opposed to wearing sweatpants outside of home. Under the influence of the sporty trend we now have in 2014, my current go-to outfit is a sweatshirt and joggers (tapered sweatpants); This is what I wore when I walked around the peak of Hong Kong’s Tai Ping Mountain. I really appreciate the comfort and practicality of athletic wear, so I sure hope that this trend is here to stay!
My hunt for a pair of joggers was not an easy one. I initially ordered a pair by Topman but they sold out after I processed my order. I then tried shopping Zara’s selection, but many were sold out in my size and the remaining pairs were too skinny for my liking. Eventually I found these ones with a zip pocket from Forever 21 and I’ve been wearing them frequently. Since then, I’ve purchased a couple pairs from the Uniqlo flagship store in Hong Kong, and I’m also eyeing this pair from Club Monaco. Joggers are the new jeans!
