There’s nothing better than cozying up in a big ol’ pair of sweatpants and settling in for a lazy night at home. But you don’t have to stay home to stay comfy! Perhaps you’ve started to notice jogger pants featured on style blogs or while window shopping online, but weren’t quite sure if you should pull the trigger. If you’ve been thinking about rocking this trend yourself, here are 4 reasons to take the plunge.
1. They’re Upgraded Jogging Pants– Ever dreamed of leaving the house wearing your lounge worthy jogging pants without fear of others judging you? Here’s your chance! Updated joggers are well designed and not the least bit sloppy. These definitely aren’t your shabby Saturday sweats.
Joie Mariner Pant (pictured, above): Casual sweatpants cut from lightweight crepe have a modern feel and a sophisticated look. Slant hip pockets hide inside the crisp pleats flowing from the smocked elastic waistband, and cozy knit banding gathers the cuffs.
2. They’re Easier to Wear Then You Think- Don’t be fooled by their street style approved status, joggers aren’t just for fashion bloggers and celebrities. They’re a savvy weekend warrior style option or can be a part of a fashion forward look. Just about anything you can wear with your everyday jeans; you can wear with jogger pants.

3. They’re a Great Skinny Jean Alternative– With joggers you get the same fit of your favorite skinny jeans at the ankle, but your thighs finally have room to breathe! The silhouette is very forgiving. If you’ve been “team skinny jeans” for years and want to try something new, go grab a pair of joggers!

4. You Can Dress Them Up or Down– Joggers look just as awesome paired with high heels and a blazer as they do with a plain tee and slip-on sneakers. In other words, you can take them from a day to night ensemble with ease. Whatever fabric option you choose, all it takes is a little creativity to make joggers multi-occasion appropriate.

Just remember one thing, when you’re lounging in front of the t.v. with a pint of ice cream, you might call them sweatpants, but when you’re stepping out in style? They’re joggers!
