Joggers (pants) are good news for all of us who are suckers for casual clothing, and believe in wearing things that are non-complicated, yet stylish. Sometimes, we end up compromising a lot more than we should and get a little too comfortable. Because wearing tight, body-hugging clothing is great but some of us hardly want to put in so much effort every single time. But, hey, there’s some good news for us! If you are still wondering what joggers are and what are the different ways to wear joggers, continue reading. You are about to find out and get liberated!

protip_icon Ace The Look
  • Hairstyles: Style your hair in different braids or updos or bring both together.
  • Body Type: Choose joggers with a tapered leg, which emphasizes the angle of your shape from hip to ankle. If your hips and thighs are problem areas, choose joggers with flowy fabric, less leg taper, and lighter weight.
  • Footwear Style: Wear fun print sneakers or contrasting color footwear to draw attention away from the fact that you are wearing loungewear.
  • Accessorize: Complete your look with stylish accessories such as sunglasses and headbands.

What Are Joggers?

Joggers are basically the closest cousins of your sweat/workout/athleisure pants, but these are more versatile and stylish than your regular sweats. Yes, we live most of our lives in athleisure pants, so why not give them a facelift? Now, let’s see how we can style these and look at some cool ways to wear joggers.

The jogger was invented in 1920 by Émile Camuset, a French designer and the founder of Le Coq Sportif, a sportswear company.

This graph indicates that the US athleisure market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2030.
