Opinions What is your style

‘Jogger’ pants should be worn for sleep, exercise, not as style

THE ROUNDUP

As winter becomes summer in Arizona (because we skip spring here), we are not seeing the clothing style of “joggers” as often on or around campus.

This is a blessing for the dignity of Brophy style. Joggers are those sweatpants that were bred with skinny jeans and elastic.

Brophy has tried to stop the spread of these “pants” as they are against the school dress code, but they still have gotten past in some cases as students have a very vibrant and ever changing style.

Many chains of clothing stores carry them in many colors, styles and sizes, hoping to draw attention to them.

This brings up the question of how are joggers classified: casual or dressy?

They seems like they would be a casual wear, but some joggers, like the ones sold by Bergdorf Goodman, are priced at a rocking, stomping $2,170.

Now, this is not the case for all of course, as those are quite significantly overpriced. Some trending stores like American Eagle and Foot Lockers sell them for significantly less (around $40) making them more easily accessible and affordable.

Joggers are a confusing article of clothing, as they do not quite reach the bottom of the leg. Even the ones that do are usually elastic at the bottom so it squeezes the ankle and bunches together. Joggers transfix me. Does the wearer want to wear pants, shorts or sweatpants?

Regardless of intention, joggers find their way into outfits for all occasions.

They are not meant for public wear unless you are going on a “jog” and trying to sweat. They seem comfortable so I think that sleeping in them would be acceptable, but besides that you are pushing it.

All in all, if you are at the store shopping with your mom and she suggests that joggers would “look cute on you,” remember this column.
