#ELLEChallenge: Uniqlo Jogger Pants

Team ELLE take on jogger pants for different looks and occasions


As Uniqlo introduces additions to its popular and wide-ranging jogger pants collection, three ELLE staffers decide that it's time to embrace this comfy and versatile bottom - and wear them in their own preferred styles.

Chih Lin, Senior Digital Writer

Chih Lin is wearing Dry Stretch Jogger Pants in olive and Jersey Jogger Pants in light gray houndstooth.

Athleisure has been a recurring trend for a long while now, but I've yet to embrace the trend till I tried on Uniqlo's Dry Stretch Joggers. The light, stretchy fabric is perfect for days when I forget my gym gear (which happens a lot, but not on purpose I swear!), but still want to have an easy workout. I can see myself wearing them with an oversized statement sweater and my hair up in a messy bun for lazy-but-chic days.

I don't really wear long pants that aren't jeans, but this pair of Jersey Jogger Pants has convinced me otherwise. The houndstooth print, though typically worn as a formal pattern, works equally well as a street-style separate when paired with off-duty staples like a crop top and bomber jacket. And when I want to wear it to the office, I'll just throw on a silk button-up!

Audrey, Deputy Editor

Audrey is wearing Drape Jogger Pants in blue stripes and Jersey Jogger Pants in wine.

We have a hot-desking system in the new office, so comfy bottoms are a must for me as I move around a lot. I love how stretchy these Drape Jogger Pants are. The stripes are also formal enough and super easy to pair for office wear - I'm definitely going to make space for them in my work wardrobe.

For weekends, all I need to do is wear a pair of Jersey Jogger Pants with a fancy top to pull off a party outfit. I really enjoy the secret irreverence of wearing them on a night out when everyone else is dressed to the nines - and probably not as comfortable as I am!

Sharon, Editor-in-Chief

Sharon is wearing Ponte Jogger Pants in natural and black. 

Khakis aren't really my thing, and I don't have anything beige in my wardrobe. This breezy look, however, is something I'm kinda loving. A loose cotton top over Ponte Jogger Pants make the ultimate weekend off-duty combination.

For an effortless day-to-night look, layer a dress or a long top over Ponte Jogger Pants and I'm ready for happy hour. Less time fretting over what to wear means more time for drinking!

Jogger Pants are available at Uniqlo stores and online now from $29.90.
