How to Style Joggers for Men

Knowing how to style your joggers is based on a key component… what is your confidence level in yourself?

Like most other fashion trends, anything can be pulled off if you feel confident in what you are wearing and show it in how you hold yourself.

If you wear more subdued clothes, colours schemes of darks and lights with not much brightness, you should stick with that same plan for styling your joggers.

Starting from the bottom up, go with a pair of black or white shoes (Chuck Tailors or Nike Air Max.) Put on a pair of black joggers or dark blue joggers with a white t-shirt or grey. And to top it off, throw on a fitted sweater or hoodie. Unlike sweatpants, fitted tops go better with the fitted cut of joggers.

Tops to Wear with Joggers

Luckily for you, joggers are like jeans and pair well with many different types of tops. Once again, stick with your confidence and comfort when deciding what top, or tops to wear with your joggers for the day. Layering many tops can be a bold move, but when pulled off, it works!

1. T-shirts and Joggers

When buying t-shirts, with your joggers in mind, you will want to focus on the length of the shirt and the cut from your chest down. Baggie t-shirts and joggers are not pulled off often, and a short t-shirt will ruin any look you are going for. Look for tall t-shirts.

2. Sweatshirts and Joggers

With sweatshirts, you can play around with the size. A tight hem and baggy hem around the waist can work, while the same goes for the amount of billow in your stomach and chest. 

3. Hoodies and Joggers

Hoodies are like sweatshirts when it comes to options. Tight and loose both will work depending on what you are pairing them with, plus you can even go shorter than usual on the length if you are wearing a long T-shirt. Find the perfect long hoodie for your look.

4. Windbreakers and Joggers

Windbreakers are a great way to add an extra layer to your jogger outfit without having to add excess weight/heat to your body. Wear your windbreaker unzipped if you have a hoodie or sweatshirt underneath. You can zip up the windbreaker with only a long T underneath it.

5. Button-up Shirts and Joggers

If it is flannel or something more dressed up, wearing a long buttoned-up shirt is a great way to dress up your joggers if you are heading to work or have a more stylish occasion to attend. When wearing a dress-style shirt, you want to be sure it is a good cut on you, tight in the right areas, and is long enough not to let the waist string show.

How Do I Look Fashionable in Joggers?

Looking fashionable in joggers is easy if you feel fashionable in wearing them! Some key areas to remember when wanting to know how to dress up joggers are:

  • Make sure everything is clean (especially shoes.)
  • Keep your t-shirt, sweatshirts and any other top a close fit (not baggy.)
  • Think of dressing up like your wearing a nice pair of jeans or slacks!

Also, make sure everything is in order. If you washed your joggers and the waistband string came out, be sure to fix it at once. Our article on how to put string back in joggers is the perfect step-by-step guide for you.
