One question I get a lot is how to wear joggers for everyday wear. So today I’m sharing two ways to wear them — dressed up and dressed down!

A reader specifically asked how to wear them without a jacket, since most outfits I see have them with a jacket and that’s not always practical, especially around the house.

So! Here are two ways to wear them your joggers, without a jacket and without looking like you’re wearing pajamas (although I have a post about wearing it with a jacket from early last year!)

First, it’s all about the right pair of joggers. This pair from Sincerely Jules is my very favorite because they’re a sturdy double knit. Most joggers I’ve worn are too thin so they look flimsy and look like pajamas and are especially non-flattering to your backside. These ones give some shape, are fitted along the leg, and are a really good length so they’re great to wear with any shoe.

To dress them down, I paired them with a comfy v-neck long sleeve tee. You could sub this for a striped tee, or a short sleeve tee. Just keep the tee nice — if you wear something too casual, it’ll easily look more like you’re wearing pajamas.

To dress the joggers up, I paired them with a sweater and black stilettos. Keep your top simple and classic to help elevate the look, and then add a nice bag.

    I love both ways that you styled these joggers! The second outfit is really chic, and I like that it’s something I can get away with wearing to the office.

    I’ve been on the hunt for good joggers, I just need a lower price point. I wish I could afford the pair you are wearing. They look perfect!

  6. LOOKING FAB! This is one of my favorite fashion posts as of late. Do you generally wear a size 2 or 4 on the bottom? I wear a 4 just about all of the time, so I’m wondering if you’re a 2 if I would need a medium for these joggers. Thanks! XX

    Thank u for this! I just 4 months ago and I have lost so much hair! I am depressed,shower and look at myself. How did u cope with your loss?? I am confused, it is affecting every aspect of my life. Will it grow back?? And the worst is not knowing when it will end. The stress is probably making it worse. Any kind positive words would help
