Jean trends are leaning towards more relaxed, oversized, baggier fits…and I’m loving it! But the new kid on the jean trend block?? Denim joggers! Yep, you read that correctly. Think of your soft, comfy joggers, but in denim. Only wayyy chicer and more luxe! I think this trend comes from necessity. More of us are working from home and we want to be stylish and comfortable. (For more 2021 trends, be sure to check out this post.)
And, these jogger jeans are on SALE right now at Express. They’re having their MLK Sale! Get 40% off for Insiders, or 25% off for non-Insiders through the 18th! Becoming an Insider is completely free so make sure you sign up to get the best discount!
How cool are these joggers!? I love them! When I want to try a trend, I always look for an affordable piece to test first because you truly don’t know how long it will stick around. If you’re a trend lover, I highly recommend giving these a whirl. They’re under $100 (plus 40% off), super high-waisted, and dark wash. They have a stretchy waistband so you can wear them all day without feeling like the waistband is digging into your stomach! You can throw on your favorite slippers around the house or dress them up with booties. I think the taller you are, the better these will look. For reference, I’m 5’4″.
Express Denim Sizing Tips
I ordered a 2 Regular in these joggers, but they also come in a Petite length. I probably should have ordered petite, but typically with Express denim I like to order the Regular length jeans because the Short and Petite inseams are sometimes too short for me. But our Digital Strategy Manager, Kaitlyn swears by the Petite and Short lengths for herself…she’s just under 5’2”. Find more amazing denim here.
Double-check inseam lengths for Express jeans: Short 25″, Regular 28”, Long 30”, Petite 25.25″
With the joggers, I wanted to keep it elevated but comfortable and casual! I love a good satin cami and this one with adjustable straps has pretty trim around the v-neckline. It looks great tucked or untucked and it also comes in black and blush. The long duster cardigan is the perfect third layer for petites to make themselves look taller. It’s ribbed and ties at the waist, which is great if you’re trying to create a waistline. It’s also super soft…I feel like I could wear this lounging around the house all day! If you’re interested in more tips on looking taller and slimmer, check out this post.
Sizing: Wearing an XS in the cami and the cardigan.
