How to wear jogger shorts?

A sporty staple for the summer months, jogger shorts combine comfort with contemporary style. Easily dressed down with hoodies or made smart casual with fitted polos and tees, jogger shorts can just as easily be worn round the house as they can to socialise, depending on how you style them.

A highly versatile piece for any wardrobe, jogging shorts will keep you looking cool and feeling comfortable. Typically crafted from soft cotton, durable polyester, or a breathable blend of the two, this style is influenced by activewear and the rise in popularity of streetwear.

What shoes do you wear with jogger shorts?

Designed to look relaxed without being too informal, jogger shorts are perfect for pairing with low top trainers for a sportswear-inspired finish. Add a pair of invisible socks or ankle socks to protect your feet, or consider opting for footbed sandals or flip flops on warmer days.

With options to suit all styles and sizes, as well as shades that range from black, white and grey to brighter colours, we have a full range of products that will help you build your outfits around our cool and comfy jogger shorts.

How short should jogger shorts be?

Like other everyday shorts, including denim and loungewear shorts, your jogging shorts should cut above the knee, ideally by about two inches. Most commonly available in regular fit with occasional slim fit styles, jogger shorts that sit just above your knees tend to be most flattering and easy to style.

You can find all types of jogger shorts at this length in our collection. Looking to upgrade your everyday style? Then add a bit of polish to your smart casual separates with seam front jogger shorts from the T&W collection. Or, if you want something that’s that bit more practical, browse the US Athletic range of jogger shorts with zips.

Are jogger shorts the same as running shorts?

In short, no, jogging shorts and running shorts are not the same. While jogging shorts are key to smart-casual streetwear and comfortable everyday dressing, running shorts are designed with the active wearer in mind. Generally made with thicker materials, jogger shorts do not provide the same essential benefits to runners.

That’s not to say that you can’t exercise in jogger shorts, just that they’re better suited to comfy days than workout sessions. However, with a pair of lightweight, breathable running shorts, you’re more likely to perform at your best.

What is the point of running shorts?

Legs work extremely hard when you run. So, because of the ease of movement and excellent ventilation they offer, running shorts are favoured by runners at all levels. Available in a variety of lengths, there are plenty of options to suit different styles and runs of different distances.

A great investment for runners wanting to maximise performance, our sweat-wicking and antibacterial Souluxe running shorts provide cool comfort, whether you’re hitting the trails or going for an outdoor jog. Perfect for building activewear outfits all year round, you can pair them with classic gym tees or long sleeve gym sweatshirts from elsewhere in the Souluxe collection.
