4 Ways of Styling Joggers-Unlock Ways to Wear This Trend

Styling joggers seems like the activity of the year since the world has gotten more casual. This isn’t my first pair of joggers, but this pair made me think I should showcase them for different occasions.

Now, I’m sure you could get many different definitions of joggers, but for me, I think of them with ribbing at the ankle, and an elastic waistband to give a looser fit. Basically the 2020 version of the yoga pant, LOL! I do see some without the gathering at the ankle.

The biggest takeaway I’d like to point out is not all joggers are created equally. There are many that are basically sweatpants. The material, the fit and the details can make a huge difference. AND they don’t all have to be black.

Insider tip: I removed the drawstring on my previous pair. It’s an easy alteration!!

So let’s start with the most obvious ways of styling joggers and then I’ll throw in the wild card option. In fact, there's a 5th way to style these same joggers on my site too.

Styling Joggers for Lounging

This is the most obvious time we think of styling joggers. Especially with all of “at home” we’ve been doing over this last year.

Joggers fit the bill for comfy pants and I paired them with a sweatshirt, slipper booties and Spookie!!

Insider tip: Even a sweatshirt can get styled for more than just lounging. See this sweatshirt styled 3 other ways here.

Work Out Wear

It only makes sense that since joggers are athleisurewear, they would work for our athletic activities.

Casual Outfit

The third idea that seems obvious for styling joggers is as part of a casual outfit. My idea of casual would be one where I could leave the house and feel good in public.

You could easily wear sneakers or flats with these joggers and have them be for everyday.


The Work Environment

Could you, would you, should you wear your joggers to work?? I’m sure you could make a case depending on your work environment. Of course, the vibe of the outfit depends on the details, right?

So I added in a blazer and my brogues.

Insider tip: I recently blogged about different ways to wear these kinds of shoes. Call them brogues or oxfords, they can be functional.
