Top high-waisted joggers in 2020
Sit back and relax or strut your stuff in versatile, comfy sweats.

How to style high-waisted joggers
Crop tops and high-waisted joggers go together like elastic pants and Thanksgiving. You can style high-waisted joggers with shorts, tanks and cropped hoodies — another trend this fall — for an easy outfit that shows a peek-a-boo of skin. To avoid looking frumpy, eschew oversized tops.
Our philosophy? Any top can become a crop if you believe in yourself and tie it in a knot.
We love platform shoes with high-waisted joggers because it takes them from casual to fashionable. But that doesn’t necessarily mean heels. Look for flatforms and chunky sneakers for extra lift. Boots don’t go well with high-waisted joggers, since they make the pants will bag around your calves.
If you want to add jewelry, we suggest choosing sleek and simple pieces — like a gold band on your arm or hoops in your ears. Adding too many bangles and baubles might lead to a confusing overall aesthetic, since sweatpants are usually low-key.
Above all, don’t overthink it. High-waisted joggers look best when you channel a retro vibe — the good ole days, back before anyone had even heard of low-rise pants.
Where to buy high-waisted joggers
If you haven't shopped at Nike in a while, you might be surprised by how fashionable it is these days. Its streetwear is super cool yet sporty, and you'll find high-rise joggers along with retro-inspired fits.
We love ASOS for offering free shipping and free returns on all purchases. Its offerings balance price and value, and caters to peeps of all shapes and sizes.
Boohoo is a staple for fast-fashion mavens, since you can find high-waisted joggers in every color of the rainbow for less than it costs to fill up your gas tank. It's also got lots of track suits available for shoppers that like to match.
