Jogger Pants Outfits. When you think of joggers, you probably think of gym wear or athleisure, and with good reason too. For a long time, jogger pants were only worn at the gym or lounging around at home. But not anymore. These days, jogger pants are worn for any number of occasions, including work!
What are joggers pants? Joggers are slim-fit sweatpants that taper down the leg and have elasticized or cuffed ankles. They have a more relaxed fit around the hips and they get slimmer down the leg. They are often worn by runners, but nowadays we see them at dressy functions, date nights, as workwear, and more! They have become an extremely versatile piece that every gal should consider adding to her wardrobe.
How to Wear Jogger Pants?
But how to wear jogger pants is really the question and so, in today’s post, we are going to show you 19 gorgeous outfits that will inspire you next time you are wanting to rock these bad boys. From work outfits to Friday night party looks, these jogger pants outfits are going to blow you away.
Joggers can be a bit tricky to wear, particularly if you are trying to avoid an overly casual or frumpy look. Here are some tips on wearing jogger pants so that you can look cute and put-together.
- Opt for slim-fit joggers pants. Because joggers are wider on top and then taper down closer to the leg, they can potentially make your hips look wider than they are. If that’s your goal, great. But they get baggy around the bum as well, which is less flattering. So stick to slim-fit so that your figure isn’t overwhelmed.
- Stick to polyester or nylon jogger pants. While cotton is great when you are lounging around the house or just want to feel comfy, polyester or nylon will retain shape better and have more structure. Another perk? These two fabrics won’t pill.
- Be mindful that joggers pants will get baggier with every wash and often lose their shape. So, once again, pay attention to fabrics so you avoid that stretched-out look. You want to look for minimal spandex/elastane as well.
- Always opt for quality. If you want your pants to look spiffy and stylish (especially in a business-chic way) then polyester, nylon, twill, or chino material are your best bet.
- Quality doesn’t always come cheap, so check out online thrift stores like ThredUp and Poshmark to get great joggers pants in good condition. Thrift stores are also an option, but be sure you check for worn-out bits (like the fabric on the inner thigh) or pills.
Now, we have scoured the Internet to find 19 stylish jogger pants outfit ideas to make all your comfy-but-cute clothing dreams come true! Check them out and feel free to screenshot and save them for later.
