We don’t take the term “closet staple” lightly. So trust us when we say that you need a pair of jogger pants folded in your dresser ASAP.
Joggers for women offer the perfect solution for bottoms that are somewhere between leggings and jeans. Not too tight, not too loose, you can dress them up, wear them to lounge, or slide them on for sleep. The possibilities are truly endless. Not to mention that they are flattering, functional and comfortable. And while we love a versatile piece, it can be hard to know where to begin.
Enter: our best list. Below, we break down all the best joggers depending on their make and purpose—we have a selection of athletic, pajama, sheer and work-appropriate joggers, and so much more! Before you know it, you’ll be running back to the store (in joggers of course) for extra pairs.
