This pattern formally sells denims and leggings


Surprise, surprise – sweatpants are selling like crazy right now. I hope you read this with a healthy dose of sarcasm because based on the number of sweatpants stories we've published and my personal lounge fits, it's perfectly clear that the humble sweatpants have achieved worldwide fame. Given current events, jogging pants and joggers have become our daily staples where jeans used to be.

In addition, they have even surpassed our beloved leggings, which used to be a must for comfortable style. Leggings saw a slight increase in sales, according to a recent report, but sweatpants saw a 12% year-over-year growth, which leads me to believe that it's not just us – everyone needs to be jogging right now. The report also found that sweatpants sell-offs officially exceeded both jeans and leggings, up 115% year over year.

If that doesn't confirm your loungewear choices, I don't know what will. To reinforce our results, I've highlighted all of the jogger microtrends that are currently dominating the market. So, scroll through this issue of the best joggers for women to find your next pair.
