10 Ways to Wear the Zella Live-In Joggers

I’ve had quite a few requests recently to show a bunch of ways to wear the Zella Live-In Joggers, so I did a little fashion show yesterday and took pictures for you!

Of course, you can substitute any pair of joggers for the Zella ones I’m wearing. It’s just that a lot of people purchased the Zella pair during the #NSale and were asking for outfit inspiration for them.

10 Stylish Ways to Wear Joggers for Fall

First off, let me tell you that all of these outfits are very casual. I’ve seen other bloggers dress up their joggers with a blazer and pumps, but I am not that girl.

I almost tried it, just to have more variety in this post, and then I did that gut-check that I often do when putting outfits together for the blog… But would you wear it?

I ask myself that A LOT.

So all of these outfits are something that I’d actually wear. And they are all outfits I threw together in about 20 minutes from what I have in my closet. I could definitely get more creative with accessories if I had more time.

I was also wishing I had a more basic flip-flop to put with some of these looks, but then again, we’re headed into fall, so flip-flops aren’t going to be very practical for most of us for very long.

If you don’t yet have a pair of go-to joggers, I also have and highly recommend the Vuori Performance Jogger. These have a very similar fit and feel to the Zella pair, although they’re a tad shorter. I also sized up to a medium in the Vuori. (I have a small in the Zella.)

I also love my Lululemon Align Joggers. I have a size 6 in those, but you could size up for a looser fit.

And if you need a more budget-friendly option, I hear good things about this pair from Amazon. I’m sure there are others, but those are the ones I’ve personally tried.

Okay, let’s get started!

10 Stylish Ways to Wear Joggers

The most obvious way to style joggers is with a t-shirt and sneakers or sandals. This is the way I wear mine most often. Add a necklace and earrings, and it will look more like a complete outfit.

A long-sleeve tee will take you a little further into fall, but I actually wear this lightweight tee with my Birks on mild summer days.

FYI, Sub_Urban Riot tees are SOOOO soft and comfortable. Very good quality, if you’re looking to add a few graphic tees to your closet.

Another option is a stylish sweatshirt with joggers… it’s as basic as it gets, but the key is to wear a sweatshirt with some style factor.

This one is a splurge, but it is so ridiculously soft, you won’t even believe it. Well worth the price tag, in my opinion. I have a feeling this one will be on constant repeat this fall and winter.

If you want to take it up a notch, add a layering piece. This is a great travel outfit, by the way, but I also wear this a lot to run errands.

I feel like the stripe tee elevates the look a bit over a solid tee, and then the denim jacket completes the look and also offers some structure.

A leather jacket is another layering option and gives this jogger outfit an edgy vibe. I love how this jacket pairs with the camo tee.

I don’t love this look as much, maybe with a white tee? But a suede moto is always an option.

And a cardigan is a cozy layering piece that works really well with joggers, since they’re already part loungewear.

Take it all the way, and wear your slippers if you’re going to be home all day. You still look put together on top, if you need to hop on a Zoom call, and you can easily swap out the slippers for sneakers if you need to run a last minute errand.

This cardigan is slightly more elevated, and I also changed into a tee that has a little more style than the plain v-neck above.

And here’s another option, with a black cardigan. This is totally what I’d wear every day this fall if I was teaching online or doing a lot of teleconferencing for work.

And finally, if you want to level up your joggers a bit more, or just have some variety for telecommuting, you can pair a luxe pullover sweater with joggers. Add a few accessories, and you’re good to go!

I think that was actually 11 looks… but who’s counting, really?

And I suppose a few are rather redundant, but isn’t it amazing how changing out the cardigan or the t-shirt makes a totally different outfit, even if the rest of the components are the same? And of course, you can always add a scarf or a ball cap or other accessories to change up the look.

I hope this post was helpful for those who are wearing joggers a lot these days.

If you’re more like me, and never feel fully dressed unless your pants button and zip, you can swap out the joggers for jeans or cargo pants in just about any of these looks.

And that’s a wrap for August! Can you believe it?

Me either.

Tomorrow starts 22 Days of Fall Fashion, where I team up with Cyndi Spivey and we each style a new fall outfit every weekday during the month of September. I hope you’ll join us!!!
