Forget your trusty jeans, the new go-to trouser is a pair of jogging bottoms. The AW14 catwalks from Armani to House of Holland were awash with sporty legwear, meaning that the humble tracksuit pant is no longer just for gym bunnies and Saturday mornings in the park.
But that doesn’t mean you can just sling just any old pair on, i.e the ancient saggy bottomed ones that you wear to yoga. Think again. This is a new breed of super luxe joggers that can be worn virtually anywhere from office to cocktails. Just not the gym.
I am a big fan, as anything with an expandable waistband gets my vote, as do things that can skip the ironing basket AND the dry cleaners. Teamed with an on-trend slouchy knit this is easy peasy dressing for busy mornings with the kids.

Perfect for lounging, the hint of glitter makes the Topshop lurex lovelies Saturday night worthy too. Even if it’s on the sofa watching Strictly. My absolute favourites are the Whistles ones – £75 for a pair of grey marl joggers might make you wince – but the quality is superb and I guarantee they’ll be glued to your legs all winter long.
