Originally made for exercise, joggers are a traditional style of sports pant. Lightweight and comfortable, joggers have an athletic appearance and taper in at the leg. Most also tend to have an elastic or drawstring waist and elastic at the ankles. Today, thanks to the booming trends of leisure and sports, joggers have become a key wardrobe essential. No longer seeming out of place or cheap, joggers are now a cool and contemporary item when styled correctly. While you can still buy the basic sweatpants-style joggers, there are also many more sophisticated and slimline styles available.
