Almost two years into the pandemic—a time when constricting clothes are quite literally the last thing we want on our bodies—joggers for women are everywhere these days. Of course, they’re a casual and comfier alternative to leggings, but they can easily be dressed up if that’s what you’re going for. Our ideal outfit is a pair of joggers, a matching sweatshirt and possibly a blazer over top—comfy and cute.

The line between joggers and regular sweatpants is a fine one and it comes down to one thing: the fit. Joggers are cinched at the ankle and often a bit more slim-fit to complement your natural shape, while sweatpants are entirely relaxed with basically no tailoring.

If you’re in need of a comfy wardrobe refresh, here are 20 of the best joggers for women to shop right now.
