Black Joggers: Beyond Basic Sweats

Comfort Never Looked So Good

If the last few years have taught us anything about what we wear, it’s that comfort is king. Without a doubt, comfort-forward apparel has been having a moment for some time now. But with people spending more time than ever in their homes, the need for clothing that strikes the perfect balance between feeling good and looking good has never been greater.

Cue the pants that have taken over our closets and our hearts: black joggers. Forget what you think you know about joggers; these pants are versatile, stylish, and most importantly, comfortable. They’re made from cozy materials like cotton and fleece, but they also come in trendy styles that will make you look good no matter what your day throws at you. Drawstring or elastic waistbands give you the overall feeling of loungewear or athletic apparel, while sleek silhouettes elevate the jogger to something you can wear out of the house. Jogger pants come in all the colors of the rainbow, but let’s face it, black is always the new black.

Whether you’re running errands or just want to feel put-together for a video call, these jogger pants are the way to go. Pair them with a denim jacket and sneakers for a casual look, or dress them up with a blazer and heels. No matter how you wear them, these feel-good pants are sure to become your new favorite go-to. So ditch the athletic sweats and try a pair of joggers instead. Your wardrobe (and your Instagram feed) will thank you.

A Jogger for Every Body

For both men and women, joggers are quickly becoming the new go-to wardrobe staple. And with so many different styles and price points on the market, there’s a pair out there for everyone, no matter your (or your wallet’s) size or shape.

If you’re on the taller side, opt for a jogger with a long inseam. This will help to elongate your frame and give you a leaner look. If you’re petite, look for a pair of cropped jogger pants that hit at the ankle. This will help to show off your shoes and give the illusion of longer legs. And if you happen to be blessed with extra curves, choose joggers for women with a high waist and wide-leg silhouette. This will help to balance out your proportions and give you a more flattering fit.

If you’re willing to pay full retail, you can seriously pay thousands of dollars for a pair of cashmere or leather joggers. But even if you’re not looking to spend a month’s rent on a pair of pants, there are plenty of realistic price points from all the brands you crave from Lululemon to Champion that will deliver both style and performance. Check out the following available styles and retail price ranges for further information and inspiration.

Fleece jogger pants are some of the coziest options on the market. Used in men’s apparel as well as for women, fleece is a soft, synthetic insulative material that’s often used in activewear and outerwear. Fleece is known for being lightweight yet warm, making it perfect for chilly days or evenings. Fleece joggers tend to look more like traditional sweatpants than other styles (and they’re just as comfy), but unlike old-school sweats, fleece jogger pants can easily be dressed up or down.
Twill joggers are the perfect choice when you’re looking to add a bit of texture to your outfit of the day. Twill is a type of weave pattern that’s distinguishable by the diagonal lines on the face of the fabric. The interwoven design gives the fabric a distinctively raised appearance and makes it more durable (and less prone to wrinkles) than traditional cotton or linen. Twill jogger pants are ideal for those who want the comfort of joggers but with a slightly more elevated look. They can be dressed up for a night out or worn with a t-shirt and sneakers for a low-key day around town.  A pair of men’s twill jogger pants retails for around $30 to $60 from brands like Gap, Inc. and Old Navy. For women, the price point is a bit higher, with most twill joggers retailing for $40 to $80. If you’re thinking more along the lines of Gucci or Givenchy, you can plan to multiply that price by 10 (or more).

Chino is actually a specific type of lightweight twill fabric that’s made from 100% cotton. It’s often used in men’s suiting because of its breathability and wrinkle-resistant properties. Available in a variety of colors including traditional shades of cream, tan, and black, chinos are a great choice for those who are looking for a more tailored look. Men’s chino joggers pair well with everything from t-shirts to button-downs and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Chino cuts for women tend to be a bit more relaxed, making them the perfect choice for a casual day or evening out. 

The price of chinos depends on the brand and caliber of the fabric, (brands like Banana Republic Inc. list their chino joggers for women beginning at around $50) but because they’re so versatile, quality chinos are a great investment piece that will see you through season after season. Add chino joggers to your closet for less by shopping the Lizard!

Another type of twill, denim is a sturdy cotton fabric that’s most commonly associated with blue jeans. But don’t forget that denim can also come in black! Denim black joggers are the perfect choice when you’re looking for an edgy yet comfortable option. If you’re looking to make a statement, go for a pair of denim joggers with distressed details or unique stitching. For a more classic look, choose a pair with a clean silhouette and simple details. Either way you can’t go wrong with this style staple. And because denim is such a durable fabric, denim jogger pants will only get better with age. 

A mid-range pair of men’s denim jogger pants will typically retail for between $60 to $100 from industry giants like Gap Inc and Levi Strauss & Co. (denim prices for women may be slightly higher), but lower base price points are available from brands like Forever 21 and H&M. If you’re looking for a designer pair like DSquared2 or Balmain, expect to pay well over $200. Fortunately, you won’t have to shell out that kind of cash when you shop for joggers here on the Thrifty Lizard!

While the cinched ankle is one of the most popular jogger styles on the market, their non-cuffed counterparts are a great option if you’re looking for something different. They provide a more relaxed look and feel, and they go especially great with sneakers or slides. Non-cuffed options are a great choice for those who are looking for a more laid-back look but still want to level up from sweatpants. And since they don’t have the constricting effect of cuffed ankles, they’re also a great choice for those with wider calves or ankles.

Non-cuffed jogger pants generally retail for the same price as their cuffed equivalents for both men’s styles and those for women. You can find them for under $30 from brands like Champion or well over $200, depending on your preferred brand and style. For a middle-of-the-road option, Nike Inc. lists several options for non-cuffed men’s styles beginning at about $50. Styles for women tend to be a bit more expensive, with some brands (like Lululemon) listing non-cuffed styles for as much as $130. Save some cash by browsing our selection here on the Thrifty Lizard

Also known as a harem jogger, drop crotch joggers are a loose-fitting style that’s characterized by all the extra fabric at the crotch area. They come in men’s and women’s styles, and they’re a great choice for those looking for a seriously relaxed look. You’ll typically see them on runway models and hip-hop celebrities, but they can also be worn in the real world. While they may not be the most flattering style for every body type, there’s no doubt they’re one of the most comfortable. And, because they offer so much room to move, they’re a great choice for women who are extra blessed in the hip and thigh area.

Since harem jogger pants are such a unique style, they can be hard to find in stores. But you can often find them online, with prices ranging from $50 to $400. Boho chic Free People brand harem joggers for women start at about $100. Want the style without the hefty price tag? See what the Lizard has in stock!

Cargo jogger options are a unique take on the traditional style. Cargo pants were originally designed for military personnel who needed extra storage for their gear. Today they’re a popular choice for both men and women who need the functionality and performance of cargo pockets without the extra bulk of traditional cargo pants. Cargo joggers offer the same comfort and style as regular joggers, but with the added bonus of extra pockets. So if you’re constantly misplacing your keys or phone, these are the joggers for you.

Cargos come in a wide range of prices. Brands like Ralph Lauren will begin at around $100 with their top-of-the-line options reaching close to $400. Men’s True Religion brand harem joggers start at a whopping $400. However, you can find more affordable versions for men and women from brands like Dickies and Old Navy, with prices starting as low as $30. If you love the pricier brands, we get it! Save up to 90% off of retail cargo joggers when you snag them here on the Thrifty Lizard.

Choose Used and Save on Your Favorite Black Joggers and More

If you’re looking to shop with a little more intention, consider shopping for your jogger pants secondhand at the Thrifty Lizard. Thrifting is a great way to save money and reduce your environmental impact. When you shop secondhand, you’re not only getting a great deal on your joggers, but you’re also becoming a champion for real environmental change.

At the Thrifty Lizard, we believe that style should never come at the expense of your ethics or the environment. From soft fleece options to durable denims, we offer a range of men’s and women’s jogger options, as well as a full line of clothing apparel and accessories. Because we only sell secondhand apparel, you can feel good knowing that your purchase didn’t contribute to the fast fashion industry.

As the second-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, fashion production has a big impact on the environment. And it’s estimated that discarded human clothing takes up to 200 years to decompose in a landfill. When you thrift with us, you’re doing your part to help reduce fashion’s environmental impact.

What’s more, shopping secondhand is always cheaper than buying new. At the Thrifty Lizard, all our apparel (including joggers for men and women) is available at up to 90% off the retail price. So if you’re looking for a pair of pants that won’t break the bank or the planet, look no further than the Thrifty Lizard, your champion for saving money and the environment.

For the Perfect Fit

How your jogger pants should fit depends on the occasion you’re wearing them as well as your personal style preferences. As a general rule, more formal occasions will call for a more tailored and tapered fit while a relaxed fit will be more appropriate for a day spent lounging around the house. And while some people prefer a snug fit, others like their joggers to be a little baggier. Of course, it’s human nature to want a little bit of both, so there’s always the option to go for a middle-of-the-road fit.

If you’ve got a certain brand in mind, be sure to take into account their specific sizing charts for men and women before making your purchase. If you’re unsure about what size to choose, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and go for a larger size. You can always take them in if they’re too big, but you can’t do anything if they’re too small. Check out the following guidelines for more information about how to get the best fit for your joggers. With the right fit, you’ll look (and feel) like a champion!

Jogger pants should taper at the ankle and end just above your shoes, not over the top of them. If the ankle isn’t cuffed, it should be rolled to avoid looking too long. Men’s jogger pants will typically have a more relaxed fit in the thigh while women’s will be more fitted; however, in both cases, the taper to the ankle should be subtle. 

Perfect fitting men’s and women’s joggers will show just a bit of skin or sock. This gives them a clean, polished look that’s appropriate for both casual and dressy occasions. If you’re planning on wearing them to the office, make sure your ankle taper is on point.

Men’s and women’s jogger pants are designed to sit at different points on the waist. Men’s options tend to have a mid-rise that sits at the natural waist while styles for women are available in low-rise (just below the hips), mid-rise, and high-rise (just below your belly button). The right rise for you will depend on your personal preferences as well as your body type. If you’ve got a long torso, a higher rise will help to create the illusion of a shorter waist. Conversely, if you’ve got a short torso, a lower rise will help to create the illusion of a longer waist.

When it comes to inseam, again, men’s and women’s styles will differ somewhat. Men’s jogger pants will usually have a longer inseam than those for women. Your inseam is found by measuring the between your crotch and your ankle. A slightly shorter inseam is better as it will make your legs look longer and leaner. If you’re on the taller side, you can get away with a longer inseam, but if you’re shorter, aim for an inseam that’s specifically designed for the petite population to ensure the best fit. The right inseam will mean your joggers hit you at the ankle bone or just above it. If they’re too long, they’ll bunch up at the bottom, and if they’re too short, they’ll look more like Capri pants than joggers. Just remember, the length should always be in proportion to your height.

Depending on your personal style preferences, you can choose joggers with a straight leg, a tapered leg, or a wide leg. If you want a more relaxed look, go for those with a wider leg. For a more fitted look, choose jogger pants with a tapered leg. Jogger pant legs should never be so wide that they’re billowing or so tight that they’re constricting. The best joggers will strike the perfect balance between form and function.
