For those of you who don’t already know (or have been living under a rock for the last century), joggers are loose trousers made of a stretchy fabric and typically elasticated at the waist and ankles. Otherwise known as sweatpants, they were originally created for jogging however they soon entered their way into the fashion industry.
Casual joggers are perfect lounge wear. Comfy, snug and trendy, they are extremely versatile and suitable for occasions such as popping to the local shop, a trip to Nandos or lounging around in your friend’s man cave.
Smart joggers tend to be more fitted and look best in neutral colours.
If you’re thinking of wearing a pair these to work, provided the dress code is smart casual, then it’s best to avoid wearing joggers made of certain fabrics. However, some of the smarter joggers are designed to mimic dress pants and when paired with the right pieces can make your look more ‘business appropriate’.

Opting for a smarter look? Then go for a navy or dark-coloured pair of joggers and pair them with a neutral oxford shirt. If the sweatpants could be easily mistaken for dress pants due to their tailored cut, you might be able to get away with this look at work.
