Will jogging pants ever be stylish? These ones want to give it a go…

Leopard print jogging bottoms. For those who wish to “work” the jogging-pants-with-stilettos trend, and feel that regular jogging pants just aren’t fancy enough, perhaps?

For those who like to get their fashion on, even when they’re at the gym, or slobbing out in front of the TV?

For you?

If the answer to the last question was “yes”, click here to buy them at River Island. If the answer was “no”, however, perhaps Dorothy Perkins can interest you in their denim joggers?

Yes, readers, it’s starting. Jogging pants want to come out of the gym and off the sofa, and into mainstream, fashionable life. They’re tired of being leisure wear, or the things you pull on when you just want to comfortable, and don’t care what you look like. They want to be considered stylish, dammit!

Is their quest likely to succeed? Have these ones convinced you to buy them? Do tell…

    I can honestly say I have never and will never wear jogging bottoms as everyday wear.
    They are (in my eyes) for exercise, decorating the house, and spring cleaning only.
    I would just never feel good in them to hit the shops or go to the cinema, but then maybe that’s just me!
    I’m not a fan of denim or leopard print but if there was a nice floral pair I might consider buying them, but they would be for the gym only!

    I saw someone wearing the “denim” version the other day – don’t kid yourselves people, they still look like tracksuit bottoms!

    Definitely no for this trend. Why can’t people stick with normal pants? These just make you look sloppy, not stylish!

    Hmm, I had to comment. I can never see the leopard pants been fashionable, well at least I hope not they just remind me of Liz from Coronation Street, anything with that print does so perhaps I’m bias but hey, these pants are meant for jogging not fashion I love my FOTL jogging pants they don’t give off any fashion statement, if they did they would be saying I’m cheap but I’m saving up for something. lol Crazy trend please no!
