Have you ever wondered how to style joggers? You’ll be surprised to find out these comfiest pants can be worn everywhere from date nights to the office! Let me show you!
Joggers. The pants I never knew I needed. When I joined ZYIA Active as a brand rep, a pair of joggers came in my enrollment kit. I never would have thought to buy a pair of these pants that I presumed were primarily for lounging.
Oh, lordy lordy was I wrong!
Soon enough, those Black Unwind Joggers became my weekend uniform. Pants that feel like pajama pants but make me look polished and put together? Yes. Please. Give me all the jogger pants!
It’s clear that women’s wardrobes have changed, especially since Covid. I recently had a working mom tell me, “I haven’t worn pants that zipped since before the pandemic, and I’m never going back.”
Who needs a pair of jeans or trousers when we can wear leggings and joggers? The future of women’s fashion has arrived and I’m here for it.
Maybe you have a new pair of joggers and don’t know how to style them. Or maybe you’re realizing you need to retire those pants that zip and expand your wardrobe from leggings into the world of versatile joggers.
Either way, I’m here to help. I’ve been wearing and styling joggers like it’s my job (actually, it IS part of my job. How fun is that?!) for almost three years now.
How to Style Joggers
The good news is, you can style your joggers with so many different clothing items, most of which you probably already have in your closet. There are so many different ways to wear joggers! You’ll find yourself wearing your joggers everywhere from work, to out to dinner, to an afternoon shopping, to watching your kids’ games on the weekends.
From dressing up to a casual outfit, I’m excited to show you some great jogger outfits.
Yeah, you might need a few pairs.
Dress up Joggers for Work
Many joggers can easily be dressed up to create great work outfits. Paired here with a fitted tank, structured jacket, and heels, this is the ultimate business casual office look. These are the Black Perfection Joggers from ZYIA Active, and I’m wearing a medium, one size up from my regular joggers size. They are a little looser with a size up, and to keep the fit tailored you can go true to size.
Wear Joggers with a Denim Jacket
Who doesn’t have a denim jacket in their closet? Joggers are a natural fit with this wardrobe staple. You get a sporty, casual look that’s cute and comfortable. Pair your favorite joggers with a tank, crop top, or graphic t-shirt and throw your jean jacket on top. Mom uniform complete!
Wear Joggers to a Casual Lunch
Meeting your ladies for lunch? Reach for those joggers! No more wondering how to style joggers. When you pair your joggers with a cute, cropped length t-shirt and a coordinating jacket, you’re ready for a lunch with your girlfriends and anything the day throws at you! The photo above shows the White Unwind Joggers in size small and Olive Vertical Chill T in size M.
Dress up your Joggers for Date Nights
Yes, you can even get fancy for a date night with your joggers! This works especially well if you have a red-hot pair like these Red Everywhere Zipper Joggers from ZYIA Active! Pairing my joggers with a cute tank top is one of my favorite ways to wear them. I am wearing an extra-small here, a size down from my regular size. If you want a more tailored fit like you see here, size down, otherwise go with your true to size. This photo is from a trip to visit the magical place where we got married, Mackinac Island.
Joggers for Casual Weekends
How to style joggers for weekends? Easy! Joggers are a natural when you’re going for an athletic look. Even when you dress them casually, they look more polished than a pair of sweat pants. These comfy pants are perfect for running errands, attending your kids’ sporting events, or whatever your active weekend takes you!
In this photo I’m wearing the Plum Unwind Joggers (I’m sized up to a M here, I recommend true to size unless you want them more baggy like this) and the Gray 1/2 Zip (also comes in green and salmon) in size small.
Which Shoes Do I Wear with Joggers?
This is probably the question I get the most when I’m helping someone shop for joggers. Guess what? You can wear joggers with just about any shoe out there! If you’d wear it with jeans, you can wear it with joggers. Let me show you.
Joggers with Tennis Shoes or Sneakers
This is the obvious answer. When you’re keeping them casual, joggers are perfect with your favorite tennis shoes.
Non-athletic sneakers work well, too. In this photo I’m wearing the Black Perfection Joggers (sized up to M), Red Copper Charged Tank, my favorite jean jacket, and some fun leopard sneakers from JustFab
Joggers with Sandals
Joggers are perfect with sandals in the warmer months! They look great with just about any sandal type.
Look how cute my joggers look with wedge sandals! Here I’m wearing my White Unwind Joggers (true to size, small) and Poppy Premium Tank (true to size, small) from ZYIA Active with a button down top from Nordstrom.
Here I styled my Green Camo Unwind (true to size, small), White Twist Tank (true to size, small), and Olive Grid Bra (sized up 1 size), with my White Birkenstock sandals. You really can wear whatever sandals you have!
Joggers with Boots
I wear low booties with my joggers all the time in the cooler months. Can you even believe how versatile jogger pants are?!
Here I am wearing my White Unwind Joggers again (I LOVE these so much and wear then a lot! They replaced my beloved white jeans. Such a huge upgrade) with some Steve Madden booties and a Jaguar Sweater from ZYIA Active (retired). The only boots I wouldn’t pair with joggers are tall boots. Save those for your leggings.
Joggers with Heels
Wait, what? You heard me. Joggers with heels! Yes, ma’am. Dress those joggers up and wear your favorite pair of heels with them.
As you all can see, I wear my joggers all the time. ZYIA joggers are my favorite and have the right fit that doesn’t stretch out or loose their shape. They come in different fabrics and colors, and are what I recommend for anyone who is looking for versatile pants. I hope these outfit ideas help you style them. Shop all ZYIA Joggers here!
