Joggers for Men

When looking to wear your joggers fashionably you will want to think of them as a pair of your favourite jeans. Wear sweatshirts, hoodies and dress shirts and layer as often as you can. Make sure any shoes you put on, or boots, are clean and look as fresh as the pair of joggers you are wearing.

Fellas welcome to the wonderful world of looking good while feeling comfortable! A fashion movement has brought the jogger into a happy ground between jeans and sweatpants in the last few years.

But who wants to take off those comfortable pants and throw on a pair of jeans?

Before I start, let’s make sure you understand the difference between joggers vs sweatpants. If you want to see where the jogger came from, check this article what are joggers? and make sure you know what size joggers you should get.

How do You Wear Joggers in 2022?

Let me tell you how you wear joggers in 2022… any darn way you want!

Fellas, we have been stuck inside for the last two years, stuck between lockdowns and quarantines, wearing sweatpants day after day after day. You most likely picked up a few more pairs of comfortable pants because of this, so use them however you feel comfortable; get out there again and look good doing it.

Make sure you got the right fitting jogger before you start acting on any of these tips: how long should joggers be?

How to Wear Joggers Fashionably for Men

When thinking about how to wear your joggers fashionably, base it on this idea: Think of your joggers as jeans.

Joggers are supposed to fit tight, like a pair of well-fitting jeans. Use this similarity of fit and base your clothing options on supporting the pair of pants.

1. Joggers Outfit

A bold but stylish outfit choice is to buy a complete jogger set. A jogger set will be the jogger pants with a zip-up tracksuit top of the same colour and look, if done well, paired with a clean pair of shoes and a ton of confidence. It can be a fashion statement to set you out from the crowd. 

2. Joggers and Sweatshirt

Add a sweatshirt to your joggers for a consistent, clean look. When pairing your sweatshirt, you will want to make sure its cut works for what you are trying to pull off. Most of the time, I will tell you to have a good fitting sweatshirt with any pair of joggers, but in some cases, a more loose fit can complement the joggers. 

3. Joggers and T-shirt

When putting together your outfit for any occasion, this will be your go-to look. The t-shirt should be the base of any style you are trying to pull off, so make sure it fits nicely, even if you will cover it with a top. 

And make sure it is long enough!

These are some top t-shirt brands that make long t-shirts that fit regular guys, tall men tees or big & tall guys tees.

4. Joggers and Windbreaker

Just like working on styling your favourite pair of jeans, adding layers to your outfit will increase the number of options you have and allow you to change your look up while out. 

When choosing a windbreaker, it’s best to consider how heavy it is and if it is breathable. You do not want to be sweating under your layers if the windbreaker traps in your body heat.

5. Joggers and Hoodie

Wearing a hoodie with joggers can be a fashionable way to go out. It is more of a laid-back look that can get you by most of the time. However, the look of your sweatshirt will either set you up for success or failure. 

Make sure the hoodie is clean, and the colour compliments the colour of your joggers. Wearing the same hoodie you work out in probably is not the right look.

6. Joggers and Buttoned Shirt

Adding a button-up shirt to your joggers is an excellent call when wearing them for a day at work. You can’t go wrong looking for a more casual flannel shirt or throwing on a dress shirt. Try unbuttoning the shirt when wearing more layers, like a windbreaker.

sweatshirt or hoodie. Wearing a denim jacket with your joggers can work with multiple colours and vibes. The biggest thing you want to have is the confidence to wear it with pride.
