After breezing through over a 100 collections during the Fall 2016 showcases at fashion week in Milan, London, Paris and New York, the athleisure or sports luxe vibe is still strong and evolving like never before. From sweatshirts knitted in a high luxury setting to sneakers being paired with couture evening wear, athleisure is definitely here to stay.

For our trend spotlight in the realms of athleisure at fashion week, we turn to jogger pants. Often seen and mistaken to be just workout or casual wear, the joggers for the current and upcoming season are surely proving to be a strong style entity.

Here are some of our favourite jogger style statements from fashion week…

The rock and rollers

Zips, leather, and denims: all evolved from their classic rock & roll edge and aligned in a stronger style direction.

The party players

Bring in that edgy layering game to your party look with joggers. Work them pants with metallics and velvet textures to make the look extra sharp for a night out.

The luxe clan

Though joggers were born on the street and have a tough fashion image, the luxury brands have embraced and worked them into a high fashion version as seen at Balmain, Tory Burch, Vivienne Westwood and Giorgio Armani.

The gamers

It’s been a while since joggers were taken out of just the sports context, and put into the daily casual wear zone. The new wave sees joggers being teamed with varsity styled jackets in vibrant prints at Pucci and some with zippers and leather panel details like at DSquared2.
