This year, just like the last, is all about comfort. But after nearly a full 365 days of wearing nothing but sweatpants and pyjamas, it seems high time to invest in some pieces that’ll elevate your work-from-home style.

“Let’s get out of the PJs,” Renee Lindo, a Toronto-based personal stylist, says. “We can still be comfortable and professional, we just need the right pieces.”

And one of those right pieces is the leather (or pleather/faux leather) jogger pant; equal parts comfortable as they are put-together.

“I’ve been wearing mine for working from home,” she says. “They’re perfect because the pleather stretches, so they’re perfect for sitting all day at your desk.”

Let’s be honest. Right now, no one is looking for a complete wardrobe overhaul, but adding a new pair of pleather joggers is enough to spice up what’s already hanging up in your closet.

From a classic white T-shirt, your favourite pair of blue jeans and your go-to, every day blazer, here’s how Lindo recommends styling your new pair of pleather joggers with some wardrobe essentials.

Classic white T-shirt

“For a nice casual look, do a French tuck and roll the sleeves for a little style. Add on a casual sneaker or high tops and throw a jean jacket overtop to complete the look.”

Button down blouse

“I love the look over an oversized white button-down shirt with joggers. Tuck in one side of your shirt and maybe add a piece of statement jewellery, a blazer or moto jacket and some heels.”

Oversized blazer

“Yes to this look! Wear your blazer with a fitted T-shirt and an oversized blazer, cinched at the waist with a belt. You can finish the look off with ankle boots.”

Knit sweater

“This is the perfect work-from-home look; comfort all around. Choose a comfortable, oversized sweater and wear it either tucked or untucked, with the sleeves pushed up for a little styling. I’d definitely add a nice necklace to dress it up a bit, too.”
