Surprise, surprise—sweatpants are selling like crazy right now. I hope you read that with a healthy dose of sarcasm because based on the number of sweatpant stories we've published and my own personal lounge 'fits, it's abundantly clear that the humble sweatpant has achieved worldwide fame. Sweatpants and joggers have become our daily staples where jeans once were.
What's more, they've even outpaced our beloved leggings, previously a go-to for comfy style. According to a recent Edited report, leggings have seen a small uptick in sales, but sweatpants saw a 12% growth compared to last year, which leads me to believe that it's not only us—everyone must be living in joggers at the moment. The report also noted that sellouts of sweatpants have officially outpaced both jeans and leggings, with a 115% increase from last year.
If that doesn't validate your loungewear choices, I don't know what will. To reinforce our findings, I've highlighted all the jogger micro-trends that are dominating the market right now, so scroll through this edit of the best joggers for women to find your next pair.
The bread and butter of any loungewear wardrobe, gray sweats are the once-boring staple that has become a low-key trend in its own right. The fashion set's outfits don't lie.
The fact that 90% of the tie-dye joggers on the market are sold out right now tells me that everyone is clamoring to add the psychedelic print to their loungewear looks, and it's easy to see why. While I did manage to find five in-stock options, I've seen a number of people going DIY with a pair of solid sweats.
Not all joggers have to be thick fleece-lined sweats. In fact, nylon joggers, in the same vein as track pants, are a lightweight (but no less comfortable) option that feels cool and sporty.
I don't know about you, but nothing lifts my mood quite like a bright color palette. From pale pink to baby blue and light yellow, there are some seriously cute, colorful jogger options out there right now.
Lightweight linen joggers are the answer to rising temperatures and are signaling a whole new category of summer loungewear we previously hadn't considered.
