Like them or not, joggers are a thing these days. As the name indicates, they were originally designed for those who were going to engage in physical activity—running and the like. However, they’ve now become an acceptable piece of clothing to wear in all situations.
Whether you love them, hate them, or haven’t thought about them at all until now, there’s no denying that joggers have taken over the fashion industry and infiltrated every aspect of modern society. Their versatility means they can be worn by people of all ages and body types—so if you want to join in on this trend, here are some ways to do so effectively:
1. Printed joggers
- Wear printed joggers with a top that has a similar pattern
Joggers have been popular for some time now in the fashion world, and they’re comfortable to wear as well. However, one way to make joggers look chic is choosing ones with a print and pairing them with a top that also has a similar print. This helps create an interesting look, especially if the top is asymmetrical in design or comes in different colors (like purple and blue). Just make sure that the color of your jogger matches the color of your shoes! And remember to add some accessories!
2. Joggers with a leather jacket
If you’re looking to boost your street cred and stylish-ness, consider ditching the track pants for joggers. Depending on how much you sweat, joggers are a great option for guys because they’re easy to clean and dry quickly. The next best thing to wearing sweats is throwing a leather jacket over it. Not only does the jacket look good with any type of jogger, but it can also make the look more stylish if worn with a pair of sneakers. Other options include cropped leather jackets and colorful leather jackets that are great for adding some pizzazz to your outfit. If you’re interested in going even further with your style game, try out a biker jacket or one that has an exaggerated fit that makes you look like a member of the Hell’s Angels (or maybe just an Edward Scissorhands).
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to wear sneakers with jogging pants if you have the right ones, so if those aren’t your thing then keep scrolling down!
3. Joggers with a varsity jacket
Joggers + varsity jacket = look chic:
Jogging runs the risk of showing off too much skin with nothing else to cover it. The solution is easy: a varsity jacket. Varsity jackets are often worn by men, but they absolutely can be worn by women as well. Not only do they offer an array of different styles and colors, but they also tend to be more forgiving on the stomach area than joggers, which allows your skin to breathe a little bit more. When you wear a varsity jacket with joggers, it’s the perfect combination for looking chic in the most casual way possible. And no, you don’t have to go spend hundreds of dollars on a designer version; this classic style can be found in all kinds of different places online or at any mall store for less than $100!
4. White joggers and a sweater
Wearing white pants is hard, especially if you don’t have the right foundation. For example, I wore a pair of white jeans to work one day and when I got home that evening, I noticed the crotch had a big mustard stain. White joggers are a lot easier because they’re made from sweatpants material and don’t need to be pressed or steamed like dress pants do in order to look good again. That’s why it’s an excellent option for dressing up your casual outfit.
As you’re putting together this outfit, remember these key points:
- Don’t get bogged down worrying about accessories
- Channel your inner ’90s kid
- Try to match your shoes with the tone of your top
5. Joggers with a trench coat
I don’t mean to sound like I’m trying to sell you on how to wear a coat and joggers, but I really want you to understand how they look together.
I’ve been a fan of joggers since the days when I was still in high school, and before that my mom had a pair of these exact same ones. They were very comfortable and always made me feel confident. However, back then I never thought about wearing them with a trench coat—because no one did at the time. I guess it’s just because there used to be this stigma about people wearing joggers with coats, which is totally not true any more!
So whatever your reason is for wanting to wear joggers and a trench coat together, now you have the perfect excuse to do it. These outfits can go with anything: they’re not too trend-driven; they’re not too casual; they’re not too dressy; they’re very well-suited for everyday wear. And if you take five minutes out of your day every morning doing something fun that makes you feel good (like eating breakfast), then why wouldn’t you want to wear something that makes you feel great?
You can make joggers look fashionable and chic, even if you aren’t working out in them.
Joggers are so easy to dress up, and they’re comfortable enough to wear every day.
This is a picture of me wearing joggers as part of my outfit (not as workout clothes). It’s from a few years ago, but I’m still looking chic! Joggers can be worn by men and women, and for any occasion between casual and formal. They pair well with boots or heels for an evening out, or with sneakers for the gym. This versatility makes them a great clothing item to have in your closet!
Joggers also promote sustainability in fashion. They’re made from durable materials like cotton or polyester, which don’t hold on to water like synthetic fibers do. This means they dry faster after getting wet during your next rainstorm, while releasing fewer particles into the air—a win-win!
Joggers, which are also known as sweatpants or track pants, are the perfect fashion staple for both men and women. Wearing joggers is unlike wearing pajamas—they’re far more versatile because they can be worn in a variety of ways and dressed up or down.
Joggers can be worn while running errands or lounging at home. You may also want to wear them out to run errands. They aren’t just for the gym; they’ve become stylish enough to wear outside of workout attire. And with their varied designs, styles, and colors, you can dress joggers up with a hoodie and heels for a night out on the town, or dress them down with sneakers for an afternoon at the park.
Joggers are great because they’re so easy to match with other pieces in your wardrobe. They’re comfortable and warm (perfect if you live in colder climates), but they don’t make you feel weighed down like sweatpants might. The pockets are great if you want to carry around anything you may need while out and about (i.e., cash). And there are so many different styles that it’s easy to find ones that fit your personal style!
