Sweatpants vs. Jogger Pants

Well, we know what you’re probably thinking - why should I opt for sweatpants instead of jogger pants? Our short and sweet answer would be that it depends on the look and feel that you want.

If you’re looking for something that is a little bit more breathable, and love working out, then jogger pants might be the right choice for you. While both are equally as comfy, sweatpants are best for lounging and are typically made of a thicker material. Still, no matter what you prefer, we have you covered with women’s joggers and sweatpants for all of your summer needs.


Add a Pop of Color

Sweatpants are a great way to add a splash of color into any look. As much as we love our classic gray and black looks, we also love to switch up our wardrobe with cool new graphics and trendy colors that breathe new life into your look.

If you’re looking to go out of your comfort zone or just want something new, we suggest checking out our Women’s Lavender Tie Dye Sweatpants or our Women’s Blue Wash Angel Jogger. These bottoms are a great way to play around with look by using fun colors while not going too overboard.

Still, we get if you’re not into adding color to your sweats collection. So if you’d rather stay on the neutral side this summer we think you should check out our Women’s Olive Fleece Cargo Jogger or our Women’s Oatmeal Marl Core Cozy Jogger.


What Pockets Work Best for You?

A pair of sweatpants would be incomplete without a pair of pockets for you to throw in everything you will need on the go. Your phone, wallet, and keys can be a headache to carry all at once, that’s why it’s important to make sure your favorite pair of sweats has pockets that can hold everything that you need.

When looking for sweatpants this summer, the key is to look for pockets that are easy-open side pockets. This style is simple to put your hand in to stay warm or if you’re just on a stroll on the boardwalk. We know women’s pants always have those annoying fake pockets, that’s why our Women's Joggers and Sweatpants Collection features real, easy-to-open pockets for maximum comfort.


Why You Need an Elastic Waistband

For maximum comfort, you’ll want to make sure that any pair of sweatpants or joggers you purchase includes an elastic waistband and drawstring. This is to ensure that you feel secure in your sweatpants all day long.

Including these features allows you to change how loose or tight your sweatpants fit throughout the day. Especially if you’re going for a certain kind of look, having these features is important to have whether you’d like a more laidback loose feel or secure tighter fit for on the go.


Why the Material Matters

When looking for sweatpants and joggers it is important to look out for what type of fabric they are made of. The two most common materials you will find out there are cotton and fleece. Typically, cotton is going to be the more lightweight material of the two and is usually used for jogger pants. While for sweatpants you will see that they are often a fleece material or fleece-lined for lounging.

Regardless, when looking for bottoms you want something that is durable and will stand against the test of time. Make sure that you find a high-quality pair of sweatpants or joggers that isn’t too thin! Both of these materials offer a great way to achieve a look for a day of relaxation this summer.
