There's no doubt about it, joggers were one of the defining trends of 2020. Yep, sweatpant outfits continue to practically eclipse all other wardrobe basics among the fashion set. Equal parts comfortable and cool, it's easy to see why they're sticking around in our new day-to-day lives. Much like the suiting or dress trends that have emerged over the past year—where bigger proportions and looser silhouettes have been winning out over body-skimming shapes—athleisure has been growing more relaxed and pyjama-like with tracksuit silhouettes often replacing formfitting leggings.

So what are the best ways to wear sweatpant-centric outfits? Taking some notes from fashion insiders, there are plenty of chic ways to style them whether worn with structured blazers and sneakers or chunky knits and combat boots. Go on to get inspiration for cool ways to wear sweatpants outfits right now, and shop the looks. I’ll personally be adopting these ideas for upcoming looks.
