Jogger pants may be nothing new, but for me, wearing them outside of the house is. The pairs I’ve owned have been more on the loungewear side. But I finally found the perfect structured pair for casual jogger pants outfits. And they’ve become a regular part of my casual wardrobe! So, if you’re struggling with jogger pants outfit ideas, then read on as I share some of my top tips!
My number one tip is to find a pair of joggers that is structured and substantial. These pair are thick and have stretch, but they do not get saggy throughout the day. That prevents them from looking sloppy! If you’re looking to wear them in a dressier way with heels for example, I’d recommend picking up a soft, dressier fabric like these. But for casual outfits, I love the thick cotton of these.
Secondly, I’d recommend pairing them with a top that fits a bit closer to the body. It does not have to be form fitting, but you don’t want it to be oversized. Try a more fitted sweatshirt, a long sleeve tee, or a short sleeve tee for warmer weather! Since joggers are so casual, it’s best to keep the rest of the look a little more tailored and fitted.
To keep the outfit as pulled-together as possible, be sure to add a third piece. For this first outfit, I added a leather jacket. I love the little bit of edge it adds. Be sure to scroll down to see the other look!
For my second outfit, I swapped the leather jacket for a puffer vest. If y’all follow along on Instagram, then I’m sure this outfit combination isn’t anything new. It’s been my go-to mom-on-the-go outfit. This look is a little more casual but perfect for everyday.
Both of these casual jogger pants outfits are more cool-weather based, but you could easily swap the leather jacket of puffer vest for a light denim jacket. You could even pair a vest or light cardigan with these too!

I love the look of both and would wear a jogger similarly. I like how the leather jacket elevates the entire outfit but like you I would probably wear it with a vest most of the time since I am on kid duty most time of the day. I hope you had a good weekend and happy Monday!

Well, you are totally adorable in this jogger outfit, Lauren! I love the joggers paired with the leather jacket! I am still just wearing my joggers around the house. I like your tip about getting the right pair that are substantial and don’t look like loungewear. Something I will consider next time I am shopping for joggers! Thanks for sharing.
Cute! Great idea to add the third layer to pull the look together!
I love that you added the leather jacket! Very cute! Have a great week!
Love your outfit! Those pants look so cozy!
You’ve styled these perfectly, Lauren!! I wouldn’t even realize they were joggers…
I love my jogging pants and have some that are so old I could never wear them anywhere. But others that I wear often. You make them look chic!
I love how you styled your joggers in both looks.
