Style on Trial: Dorothy Perkins Harem Joggers

We’ve all been there – the sun makes its first appearance of the year and, in celebration, we over-indulge  in our good friends, Ben and Jerry. Suddenly we’re aware that bikini season is on its merry way – and there’s nothing for it but to hit the gym.

But what should one wear to workout this season? How about some of these delightful hareem joggers from Dorothy Perkins? (£20)

We challenge any amongst you to pull these beautifully cut pants on, check yourself out in the gym’s full-length mirrors and not want to work-out that little bit harder to get rid of that deceptively large-looking rear, those tree-trunk thighs and protruding belly… Because that’s just what these joggers will make of your figure, no matter how svelte you are to begin with!

Of course, Dorothy Perkins don’t suggest you actually wear these to work out in (heavens no!). They suggest pairing them with a white vest tee and grey strappy heels. What do you think – could you pull this “fresh-from-my-workout” look off, or should these pants stay buried in the gym bag where they belong?

    Should definitely stay in the gym bag, in my opinion. I just don’t get the wearing joggers out thing.

    Sweats with heels? my goodness,all this time I could have been a fashion icon, instead of wearing real clothes out in public.
