When styling joggers, the goal is to look fashionable, not frumpy. The first step is finding a pair of joggers that compliment your body and achieve the desired look.

Find a pair that is more structured made from quality material. They should be a little loose but still, form-fitting, tailored to your natural curves. Materials like polyester, nylon, and twill won’t pill and will look good longer.

Once you have decided on the pair of joggers, there are a few different ways you can style them.

Coordinating joggers and sweatshirts are very popular right now, and you will find a variety of jogger sets available from most fashion retailers.

If a sweatshirt is too warm for you, you can pair them with a plain crop, tee, or tank. You want to keep it simple.

In addition to your top, you need to consider accessories. Accessorizing will make your look more fashionable. Gold rings, necklaces or earrings, and an eye-catching handbag will work wonders.

When you want to look good in a pair of joggers, the most important element to get right is your shoes! Your shoes can totally change the look of the outfit, in both good ways and bad.

If you want to sport this look yourself, we have put together a list of the 8 best shoes to wear with joggers that will look good!

1. Chunky Black Boots

A pair of black boots will give you all the 90s vibes joggers are known for.

Yes, if you didn’t know, jogger fashion first occurred in the 90s and is now making a major comeback along with many other styles from the decade.

The Leona women’s vintage smooth leather heeled boots have a 2-inch chunky heel that looks amazing with joggers!

2. Ankle Strap Sandals

For a look straight off the runway, pair ankle strap sandals with joggers. Choose a sandal with at least a 2.5-inch heel to elongate the leg and create a more flatter silhouette.

When you add a sleeker or “fancier” shoe to joggers, you want to wear high-quality fashion joggers. Polyester, faux leather, camo, or khaki are great options.

Open-toed or closed-toe heels with an ankle strap will work.

If you are wearing black joggers, opt for nude or dark green sandals instead.

3. ’90s Inspired Sneakers

Fashion is more straightforward than we often assume. Shoes designed for running with 90s influence look great with joggers!

All major brands now have a selection of chunky sneakers that pay homage to the styles three decades ago.

If you tend to be on the more cautious side and don’t like taking fashion risks, wearing white tennis shoes with your joggers is the easiest, fool-proof way to look great.

To create this look your shoes don’t need to be tennis shoes; however, they should have a flat, thinner sole and all-white appearance to get the look.

White sneakers can get scuffs and look tattered easily. Keep them clean and use shoe wipes to keep them bright.

7. Ballet Flats

Ballet flats look best with dressy joggers or joggers that end mid-calf. These shoes can be as casual or fancy as you want and can entirely change the vibe of your outfit.

If you plan on doing a lot of walking or are traveling, these shoes are a great option.

8. Slides

Current fashion trends are focused on comfort, and designers are now taking notoriously comfortable items like joggers and slides and adding a little spice.

Slides were previously made by athletic companies as shoes that athletes could wear while commuting to practice or after a game. Now, slides are made from luxurious materials and sold by top luxury designers.

With a pair of slides, you can change the whole look of your outfit.

For example, if you are wearing a fitted pair of grey joggers, they will look great with a pair of Adidas slides, and you will achieve a more of an “athleisure” look.
