Joggers vs. Sweatpants: Which is Best for You?

We are now living in the golden age of athleisure. Maximizing comfort while transitioning from working at home, going back to the office, heading out for a workout, or grocery shopping is our priority when choosing day-to-day outfits. Of course, joggers and sweatpants are the most powerful players among the comfy and loose-fitting bottoms. They are both a casual style designed for comfort and efficiency. However, the question is, do you know their differences?

Keep scrolling to dive into the differences between joggers and sweatpants, some styling tips, and eight trendy picks for you to rock these comfy essentials.


Joggers vs. Sweatpants

Who says sweatpants are only for lazy days lounging at home? Many of you might think joggers are a modern updated version of baggy sweatpants, making you look sloppy when you wear them outside your apartment. But the truth is, both sweatpants and joggers come in different shapes, silhouettes, and colors. You can also find slim-fit, tailored sweatpants available in a variety of colors. 

The main difference between the two is the material. Joggers are generally made of thin, lightweight, soft cotton-poly blends while classic sweatpants are made of thicker and warmer fabrics. Heavyweight sweatpants are ideal for colder weather, and they can increase the amount you sweat when you exercise in winter.

Now that we know the difference between joggers and sweatpants, what's next? It's time for you to explore and find the perfect pair for different occasions.

Joggers Styling Tips

Always opt for slim-fit joggers that are tapered in the legs to create a sleeker appearance. If you’re pounding the pavement or hitting the gym, you can go with our classic and most versatile wardrobe staple, the Black Heat Seal Fleece Jogger Pants, and throw on a plain tee. If you feel like dressing up, you can add a futuristic and trendy hoodie with cool kicks to pull off a snazzy ensemble.

We've got the white version of these joggers for guys who love to make a fashion statement. Throw on a Henley or color pop tee that fits your form well with a clean pair of sneakers, and you’ll ready to hit the bar with your friends or meet a date. Joggers can also be dressed up as smart casuals. You can wear these Tobacco Twill Joggers and Khaki Twill Joggers with non-athletic sweaters, Henleys, and button-downs while enjoying the untouchable comfort.

Sweatpants Styling Tips

Sweatpants are no longer something that can only be worn to bed or around the house. If you pick the right fit and style them correctly, sweatpants can be dressed up as cozy fall-winter outfits to wear in public. Just one golden rule: avoid overly baggy shapes and excessive length that will make you look sloppy.

Slim-fit sweatpants are still comfortable and roomy without a lot of extra material flopping around. If you want a versatile wardrobe essential, our classic slim-fit Dusty Black Sweatpants are a great choice to play with basics and beyond. You can nap in them on your couch with an old tee or dress them up with black leather jackets and cushy hoodies. You can also pair our White Sweatpants with stylish bomber jackets, trench coats, or cozy sweaters to create a comfortable, smart look. For creative guys who love a pop of color, Brooklyn Cloth has various colors of slim-fit sweatpants, including Forrest Green 2.0 Sweatpants and Yellow. Let’s enjoy the ultimate comfort and good vibes with our trendy and colorful sweatpants!

OMG! Thank you so much for mentioning about how sweatpants can protect us from the cold weather while working out. I’ve been thinking of a nice gift for my son’s 20th birthday next week. I’ll certainly remember this article when I make a purchase later.
