We’re not big fans of jogging, but we’re superfans of joggers! These tailored lounge pants are sleek, stylish and soft — perfect for running errands, traveling or even working out. When leggings feel too constricting and sweatpants feel too baggy, joggers are our happy medium.
According to Women’s Health, “Joggers are an activewear MVP! Consider them the sweet spot between sweatpants and leggings, and you can pretty much do any exercise in them. Not only are joggers great for workouts, but they are super stylish and can go anywhere, from errands to brunch to an airplane.”
Keeping all of this in mind, we rounded up 11 of the best lightweight joggers for summer lounging. Whether you’re hitting the gym or hitting the pavement, these pants will keep you cool all season long.
