How to Style Joggers

Joggers continue to gain popularity, being a comfy alternative to women’s leggings, sweatpants, or jeans. Because they’re so comfortable, we can be tempted to just wear joggers as loungewear. However, there are many ways to style this must-have comfy pant, from casual to professional. You’ll find that if you know how to style them, joggers can be a surprisingly versatile piece in your wardrobe!

Joggers vs. Sweatpants

First of all, let’s make sure we understand the differences between joggers and sweatpants. While sweatpants generally use heavy material, joggers are more lightweight and breathable. Sweatpants generally have a baggier cut, while joggers have a slim, tapered cut down to the ankle, and usually have a stretchy cuff at the ankle instead of an elastic band like sweatpants. They come out ahead of sweatpants for versatility, being perfect for working out, lounging, and going out.

Joggers are a wardrobe staple for every body type. They taper down to accentuate your curves so you can confidently style your favorite looks. From straight sizes to women’s plus size joggers, you’ll love the way you look in them!

Casual Style

Most commonly, you’ll see people sporting athletic joggers. While these are great for working out, you can still style these for every day. Wear your favorite high-waisted pairs with a cropped tank or tee. Pair your athletic ones, from popular athletic brands like Under Armour, PUMA, Champion, The North Face, and Skechers, with an athletic tee or sweatshirt.

In colder weather, reach for a pair of soft, warm fleece joggers. For a pop of color, pair pink ones with a neutral sweater or tee. On hotter days or for working out, reach for a pair in a trendy capri silhouette! For jogging and lounging alike, you can find head-turning, comfy sets that take the guesswork out of building a trendy outfit.

Men can effortlessly style joggers, too. Pair men’s pants with a bomber jacket or denim jacket over a hoodie or henley. For a more formal look, add a short-sleeved button-up shirt. You get the crisp look of a collared shirt with the comfy style of joggers. Because the tapered pant draws the eye downward, the best footwear option is a clean sneaker.

Professional Style

Joggers aren’t strictly casual; you can even style your favorite pairs to wear to work! Pair your favorite black joggers with a sweater, or a partially tucked t-shirt under a denim jacket. If you want something nicer, check out some dressier designs. Leather joggers or pairs with a striking print like a cheetah or leopard print give off a professional vibe with a bold edge.

If you want to try something out of the box, match denim joggers with an unstructured blazer. Finish off the look with a clean pair of sneakers, loafers, or heels. Don’t work in an office? No problem! For those in the medical field who love the cut of these pants, you can find scrub joggers to wear to work!
