I have written about Made by Riley when they only made t-shirts. They have now expanded into joggers, leggings and hoodies. A lot of my joggers were too flimsy and bagged at the knees and bottom. I adore vintage Nike and Adidas trackpants but I am on the cusp of having to leave these to my kids. So I need something better and as these are something I live in, I am happy to pay a bit more.
Made by Riley have got the shape spot on. Their joggers are fitted and the fabric looks expensive. The weight is perfect for Spring, as it is not too heavy, yet stiff enough that you won’t feel exposed or get sagging. I have ordered the navy, but am now going to go back and get the grey and black.
Jogger are a staple in my wardrobe like great jeans . I wear my joggers with a silk shirt (buy them on Ebay as they get ruined so easily) and a blazer and usually a kitten heel, but you can also dress them down with an oversized hoodie (check out the Made by Riley ones) and mink slides. Also look out for a belted jacket as they are so flattering over joggers.
I went for a small, so size down. I really love that this is a local London brand and they give a percentage of the proceeds to charity.
You can also wear your joggers with an oversized gingham shirt – check out ASOS
Getting the basics right is crucial to building a functioning wardrobe as they will become the basis that you can build on. I will be featuring more from Made by Riley next week – I will be checking out their leggings.
