How to style joggers
Now that you know the key pieces to wear, it’s time to turn your attention to how to style joggers.
When it comes to pulling off jogger outfits, creating the right balance of casual and smart is key. Nobody wants to look like they’ve just rolled out of bed, so take some inspiration from our style guide to stay fresh but cosy no matter the occasion.
Look one: Going to class
Joggers were practically made for wearing to lectures – or at least, they should have been. While we don’t recommend sitting back and relaxing too much, trackies make those stiff classroom chairs a whole lot comfier. If you’re out of education, this outfit is perfect for running errands at the weekend, thanks to its relaxed fit and cool vibes.
Check prints add edgy detail to the simplest of outfits, making a check shirt or jacket a must have when wearing grey trackies. Go for a darker colour scheme for the top and shoes to create a stylish contrast that’s sure to turn heads.
Joggers are easy to style for everyday looks. Feel free to swap the plaid print for a leather jacket if you’re feeling daring and choose a long sleeved tee if you’re going jacketless.
Look Two: Formal flair
Going to a formal event but don’t want to give up the joggers? We get it – they’re the one piece that offers equal amounts of comfort and style, so it’s no wonder why you never want to be without them. Learning how to style tracksuit bottoms fashionably for formal events may seem impossible but luckily for you, we’ve got your back.
Keep it smart with a crisp white shirt – opt for a slim fit to show off the results of arm day without straying from the dress code. You can add a skinny black tie and blazer if the event calls for it, otherwise stick with a leather jacket to bring a bad boy vibe to the outfit.
When it comes to the tracksuit bottoms, don’t go for anything other than skinny fit. Save your baggy jogger styles for seeing your mates or you’ll end up looking far too casual. It’s a lot easier to get away with wearing black skinny fit joggers simply because they look similar to many types of smart trousers. Comfy and smart at an all-day event? Sounds good to us!
Balancing the casualness of joggers with smarter pieces is key to pulling off this new sporty yet formal outfit. If you can get away with trainers, we’d recommend a low top pair in all black to make sure they blend in with the rest of your attire. Otherwise, add a dapper touch to the look with a pair of gentlemanly ankle boots.
Look three: Sporty sets
Whether you’re heading out for a run or playing footy with the lads, a matching tracksuit is a must have if you’re getting sporty outside. Designed with stretch technology, Superdry Sport tracksuit bottoms help you look stylish and stay on top of your game. Tracksuit sets are effortless and trendy, ideal for a grab ‘n go outfit – when you don’t have much time to spare.
If it’s too hot for hoodies, trade it for a breathable tee and style it out with a baseball hat in the same colour as your joggers for a more subtle matching outfit. Impress your mates with some footie skills by wearing sporty trainers with strong soles – nobody wants to slip up on the pitch.
Look four: Winter warmer
It may be tempting to stay indoors all winter, but it’s only a matter of time before you have to drag yourself out of a warm bed. Keep the cold at bay with a pair of super soft joggers and boss those winter trends with a trendy sherpa jumper.
When it comes to t-shirts, layer it up by wearing a long sleeved tee under your hoodie. It’ll keep you toasty while looking totally cool if you need to take your jumper off.
As far as shoes go, just stick with your trusted pair of trainers. Make sure they have a decent grip if it’s icy so you don’t end up stacking it in front of the girl you fancy. Embarrassing or what?
Look five: Feeling the heat
It may be shorts season, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to joggers for good. Perfect for heading to the pub with your mates, swap the shorts for a pair of lightweight tracksuit bottoms on those cooler summer days.
Opt for a short sleeve polo shirt in a light colour to keep you cool, especially if you’re going for a darker pair of joggers. Camo prints are always a top choice but feel free to swap them for a grey pair if you want a simple yet stylish outfit.
If you’re heading out to watch the big game, you’ll need somewhere to put your stuff. Ditch the jacket in favour of a sports bag to embrace the athleisure trend while keeping track of your things.
Now you’ve got a look for every occasion, it’s time to find the perfect pair. Check out the range of tracksuits and joggers in our new season collection.
