How Many Joggers Do You Need in Your Closet
It depends on how much you actually use them. I would recommend at least 2. Why? Well, because sometimes they replace other pants and as you are about to see, there are so many different ways to style jogger pants! I wear mine pretty often.
Which colors? That’s up to you. Maybe make that decision after you see the looks I’m sharing below. In my opinion, a black jogger is a must. The other color is really up to you. The one I wear the most is my black one without a doubt and my second favorite color would be sage green (which I ironically don’t have any more lol). But for now, I’m happy with a black one and a grey one.
PS: I’m currently traveling the world full time with my husband! We are currently in Italy (we’ve been in Turkey, Mexico, Albania, Romania, Portugal, Malaysia, Sri Lanka & more) and I have my black joggers with me! Check out my updated travel outfits + styling tips here!
Care Instructions For Joggers
It depends on the fabric, but they are usually a little bit delicate. I always wash them with cold water, on delicate cycle and let them air dry. But understand that this will vary. Please read the care instructions in the tag before you quote me on this ;).
What To Wear With Joggers – Outfit Formulas to Follow
How to wear joggers and make them look stylish is actually not that hard!
I travel the world full time with my husband and I always take 1 or 2 joggers with me (it depends on the destination). I’m very excited to share some of my favorite outfit formulas on how to style joggers, so you can also create your own version of these looks! Remember that you don’t have to recreate the exact same outfits I’m wearing, these are just for inspiration.
This is how you can use the outfit formulas I’m sharing below, as a guide to create your own looks with what you already have in your closet:
- Take out the hero piece first. In this case, the joggers or sweatpants or comfy pants. Whatever it is that you have available!
- Take out of your closet each piece in the outfit formula. For example, if there’s a jacket or a sweater, take out the ones that you think would work well with the hero piece. Do that for every piece in the outfit formula.
- If I’m wearing something more specific like white sneakers, don’t worry if you don’t have them! Just use any pair of sneakers you already have!
- Have fun mix and matching all the pieces together. I always recommend to create as many looks as possible and take photos for later. This way you will have many looks that are ready for you to wear when you don’t have time to choose an outfit or when you feel like you ‘have nothing to wear’ ;)
PS: I know it’s annoying to take everything out of your closet, but this is the best way to visualize what you already have and to see what goes well together. I promise it will help you maximize each piece even more and you will be able to create the most amount of outfits this way!
All of the photos you are about to see were taken over the past 6 years! That’s the advantage of having classic/timeless pieces!
What Tops To Wear With Joggers
As you are about to see, you can pretty much wear joggers with any top! It depends on the occasion.
I like to wear my joggers with sweaters, long sleeve tops, T-shirts, a cami and a long cardigan o denim jacket and even with button down shirts!
Keep reading to see all the different tops you can wear with joggers!!
What To Wear With Joggers – Casual Looks With White Sneakers
I think this is one of my favorite ways to style joggers for cute every day looks. I am a huge fan of white leather sneakers, so I really wear them very often. I never travel without them!
The sky is the limit here. I included T-shirts or sweaters because it all depends on the season and where you live. Since you can wear joggers all year round, I want you to consider both options. I’ve also included a couple of looks with an extra layer. It’s crazy how a simple moto or denim jacket has the power to upgrade any outfit.
Also, think about other accessories. If you want to dress it up a little bit more, then add a hat, headband, earrings, bag, etc. It really makes all the difference. For me, I also like to do my hair when I wear a casual piece like a jogger. Somehow it feels different than just wearing a bun.
Outfit formula #1: T-shirt or Sweater + Joggers + White Sneakers + (Jacket Optional)
- These are my favorite comfy pants! And don’t walk, RUN!!! They just release these joggers/pants (very similar to the ones I’m wearing above, but minus the zipper!) These sell out super fast, so snag them while you can :)
- If you are interested in joggers that look more like sweatpants, I love this brand! This is where I get all my T-shirts too. They have great basics!
- If you are reading this post in Spring/Summer, this brand always releases very cute and flattering comfy pants! (like the grey ones I’m wearing above) Just browse this page!
- Best sneakers ever here! (and they are sustainable!) I have the White Leather Version. A little bit more expensive, but way easier to clean which makes them last longer!

Outfit formula #2: Create Monochromatic Looks
This one is super easy! Whatever color your joggers have, wear the same or similar color on top! That’s it :)
It can be a sweater, a tank top, a t-shirt… whatever you have in your closet. Here you have 3 examples of how that looks like.
The first one is with 2 different shades of pink, the second one is with light beige and white and the third one is an all-black look. Trust me, whichever way you decide to go, this outfit formula never fails!
This is why I recommend taking the pieces out of your closet. Pay attention to the colors/textures and see which ones you can mix and match together. And don’t worry if they are not an exact color match. Sometimes that creates an even better outfit!
Notice I’m wearing my favorite white sneakers in all of these looks too!

Outfit formula #3: A Cute Top + Joggers + Flats
With this outfit formula you can also get as creative as you want. For this one, I want you to think about cute tops and sweaters (depending on the occasion and season), consider other shoes like slip-ons or flats and to take things to the next level; accessorize! It can be a scarf, hat, or earrings… whatever fits your style!
My general rule for creating these type of looks is: If I’m wearing a super plain top, I try to accessorize better. If I’m wearing a nicer/dressier top, I keep the rest of the look super simple.
Below are 6 outfit ideas with joggers/comfy pants. I hope they inspire you to recreate something similar with what you already have in your closet.
Did any of these inspire you? I always try to wear super basic pieces because A.) they are so much easier to mix and match together and B.) Chances are higher that you have any of these at home! This way it will be so much easier for you to sort of ‘copy’ these looks if you don’t know where to start :)
Bonus Looks! How To Style Joggers To Go Out!
You know how much I love to share bonus looks! And these are GOOD! I mean, who doesn’t want cute AND comfy looks to go out!?
These joggers are so good that I bought them in 2 different colors! Unfortunately, the beige ones are no longer with me because of a stubborn stain, but I still have them in grey and wear them to go out all the time!
Learning how to wear joggers to go out has been a game changer! Don’t get me wrong, I still love dresses and skirts but these pants are so freaking comfortable that are hard to resist!
The outfit formula is pretty simple: Heels/Espadrilles + Cute Top + Joggers + Accessories
I linked this store above too. Remember when I mentioned to check it out during Spring and Summer? Here’s the link! These type of pants are unfortunately not available all year round, but it is still worth checking out from time to time.

Bonus Looks! – What To Wear With Joggers For Traveling?
Keep it simple with sneakers or flat shoes and the extra layer is up to you. I always add one because I’m always cold! There’s nothing like traveling comfortably and the best part is that you can also wear the joggers as part of your everyday outfits wherever your destination is! They are very comfortable to go out there and explore a new city.
