5 Easy Ways to Style Jogging Suits for Men

Jogging suits, sweatsuits, tracksuits… whatever you want to call them, these matching two-piece sets are a modern-day wardrobe essential. The world has become significantly more casual in the last few years, which is excellent for us athleisure fans. Still, finding a way to make athletic clothing look a little more stylish, dressy, and premium can be a challenge.

This is exactly where jogging suits shine. They’re soft, comfortable, and surprisingly stylish. If you’ve never worn one before, you might be unsure of where to start. Let’s discuss.

When Men Should Wear a Jogging Suit

First and foremost, you need to know exactly when it’s appropriate to throw on a jogging suit. Jogging suits are best worn during transitional seasons, like fall and winter. Generally speaking, you’re not going to want to wear a tracksuit anytime the temperature is above 75 degrees.

Of course, if you live somewhere without dramatic seasons, like southern California, you might be able to get away with wearing them more often. In these cases, you’ll want to consider the temperature and sun exposure more than anything else.

The occasion should also come into play. Obviously, a tracksuit isn’t appropriate for any super formal occasions, like weddings or work dinners. However, when styled appropriately, they can be versatile enough for a variety of situations, including:

  • Zoom work meetings
  • Trips to the grocery store
  • Casual date nights
  • Airport and travel days
  • Shopping

Jogging Suit Trends

There are quite a few iterations of the jogging suit, but we can easily group them into a few clear-cut trends. By understanding the different styles, you’ll better understand your options and can more easily choose a style that suits you.

Retro

The retro jogging suit pays homage to the first two-piece sets that rose to popularity back in the 80s and 90s. Think of Run DMC - it’s all about matching branded pieces. Retro-styled suits are sometimes made of performance fabric but also come in cotton.

The retro style looks best on someone who’s a bit bigger, so if you’re super slim this might not be the best look for you. You’ve also got to be comfortable with the louder style and be ready to accessorize.

Branded

Logomania is an entire trend within fashion. You’ve likely seen the Gucci logo belts, Fendi logo printed bags, and more. The same trend can be seen with jogging suits. In short, these tracksuits make it clear that they’re made by a particular brand, whether that’s with an all-over logo print or one big statement.

Almost anyone can get away with this style. The only thing to consider here is that logos can feel very casual, so you won’t want to pick up one of these suits if you’re looking for versatility.

Streetwear

Some jogging suits are intentionally made for taking everywhere. They give you that influencer-esque, mellow, cool look. These are typically made from the softest cotton with plenty of added stretch. But, they still have a more fitted cut so that you look put together.

The streetwear look is perfect for wearing for any less-than-formal event, from walking your dog to a quick business lunch. You can also mix and match the pieces, add a t-shirt underneath, and make it work for wherever you’re going.

Athletic

No one is actually wearing a tracksuit to work out in, but some are made with much more focus on the athletic part of athleisure. They tend to be made of performance fabric for maximum comfort. They’re (sometimes) a bit more baggy than other options with louder colorways.

The athletic jogging suit is best for someone who appears athletic. You’ve got to match the vibe of the suit. You’ll also need to sporty accessories like a premium t-shirt or stylish sneakers.

How to Choose the Right Jogging Suit for You

Not every jogging suit is going to work for every person. You’ve got to find the one that feels most authentic and flattering for you. Consider the following questions to help you choose the right one:

  • Personal Style:What’s the rest of your closet look like? If your wardrobe is full of suits, dark denim, and knit sweaters, you’re likely better off going with a classic streetwear-inspired jogging suit. This plainer option will suit your personal style. Meanwhile, if you regularly wear louder clothing, a branded look will be best for you.
  • Lifestyle: Where are you headed when you’re not at work? Do you spend time in more upscale cafes? Run a lot of errands? Spend time at friends’ houses? Consider where you’ll wear the jogging suit in your daily life, then choose a style that suits those locations.
  • Body Type: As we discussed above, a more athletic style suit is best for someone with a more athletic body. Likewise, a retro-style jogging suit doesn’t look right on someone who is ultra-slim. By choosing a set that suits your body shape, you’ll ensure you look immaculate.
  • Color: Certain colors look better on certain people depending on skin tone and hair color. As a general rule of thumb, stick to green, purple, blue, grey, and brown if you have a cool undertone to your skin. If you have a warmer undertone to your skin, you can do warmer colors like red, yellow, and orange. If your skin is neutral, you can rock the boldest and brightest colors.

Styling Your Jogging Suit

The beauty of a jogging suit is that you don’t have to put a ton of effort into styling it: it’s meant to be worn as a set! Here are a few things to consider as you accessorize and put the entire look together:

  • Socks: A tall sock that covers your entire ankle under the pants looks more casual, while a low sock that shows the ankle looks a bit dressier. Opt for neutral socks. If you can, wear a sock in the same color as the jogging suit for a clean, monochromatic look.
  • Shoes: For the most part, you’ll want to wear street-style sneakers - ones that are clearly made for style, not working out. Dad sneakers and Yeezys are more casual, while a clean, lower-cut monotone sneaker appears dressier.
  • Hats: A beanie or skull cap can add an intentional casual style to your look. If your jogging suit has an attached hoodie, wearing the hood up is also a great, but more relaxed touch.
  • Bags: Adding a sleek belt bag to your jogging suit is a nice way to break up the color of the suit. Or, carry a backpack or duffel for a casual vibe.
  • Jewelry: Jewelry should be minimal. A necklace can appear a bit too try-hard with this look. Opt for a simple bracelet or watch.
  • Layering: If your jogging suit has a sweatshirt for a top, a hoodie in the same color family can look great over top, with a bit of the sweatshirt hanging out underneath. Any type of jogging suit can look cool with a motorcycle jacket or bomber jacket on top. Or, if the top of your sweatsuit unzips, a plain, crisp t-shirt underneath is also acceptable.

There’s no doubt about it: jogging suits are here to stay. They’re supremely comfortable, easy to wear, versatile, and somehow, still stylish. Ready to get your own tracksuit? Check out our premium collection of European slim-fit jogging suits.
