Despite what their name suggests, joggers aren't our pant of choice when engaging in cardio activities (we've got workout leggings and classic athletic shorts for that). But, while the popularity and demand for athleisure spikes as part of our stay-at-home attire, joggers are experiencing well-deserved success and newfound purpose as sweatpants' cooler cousin — offering sweatpant-level comfort but with greater style potential.
Unapologetically soft, breezy but not baggy, and able to hug a leg all the way down to the ankle without clinging, joggers are exactly the kind of pants we want to be living in these days. Considering the style range of everything from satin to drop-crotch, high-waisted, multi-pocket cargos, and OG activewear joggers to choose from, this bottoms' category is much more versatile than it seems. Joggers with a blazer? It works. Joggers and heels? Yes, you can.
You may not find us running laps in any of our favorite pairs featured ahead, but you will see us re-styling them with the rest of our wardrobe for fresh Zoom looks and beyond (aka jogging to the grocery store).
