How I'm Styling My Jegging Joggers For Spring And Summer

Sometimes in the Midwest, it feels like there are only two temperatures: hot and cold. The weather fluctuates on us so quickly it can leave you confused with what to wear. In fact, a couple of weeks ago, we had a 70-degree day and boy, did it feel good, but within 48 hours, it was back to 30 degrees. Instead of complaining, I'll take that as a good sign that beautiful warm weather is on the way, and it won't be long before it’s T-shirt and tank top season. In the meantime, I like to have pieces that are easy to go from cooler temps to summer weather without too much fuss.

I recently found some jegging joggers that I'm loving. The first thing I appreciate about them is how they fit my body. I like my joggers to have a tighter fit, and these give me that look, and they are flattering. They have a nice high rise to them, which is comfortable for me on my stomach, and because they have an elastic waist, this makes them feel more like joggers than pants. I also love the fact American Eagle pants and jeans come in lengths. Being a tall girl, I appreciate having a choice of how long or short I want my pants to be. I went with a long in these, but I could also have been fine with a regular length. Sometimes, I find that joggers don't always grab so tightly around the bottoms with the cuff, and I may have to add an extra roll to give me the look I want. That wasn't necessary with these joggers, and it was a feature that stood out to me.

Finally, the material is what makes these so easy to transition from season to season. They're not too heavy or too light, so a fleece or sweatshirt is perfect for the current cool temperatures. In a few short weeks, I'll simply switch things up to a T-shirt, and if I need to, I can throw on a hoodie or light jacket based on the time of day. As summer settles in, a tank top and pair of sandals will be my best friend when I wear these joggers. Changing the tops is simple enough to do, but these will work well styled with different types of shoes also.

With the current cooler weather, a cute pair of combat boots will give you a nice edgy look, or if you’re like me, I’m definitely becoming more of a sneaker girl. Wear them with a simple athletic shoe or take it up a notch and pair them with some cute high tops. You can also dress these up with a nice heel and blouse for a night out with your girlfriends. Of course, for the summer, you’ll have no problem rocking these with sandals no matter if it is a flat sandal or a pretty espadrille. With so many different options, you’ll have no problem changing your look up at any time. The hardest decision might be whether one pair is enough. I have to say I loved them so much, I grabbed another color. Don't judge me.
