    15K  Views

    Whether you’re training for the next running marathon, or you're already a pro at Netflix marathons, you need bottom wear for both activities. Take it from me. I've been working out two hours every day for the last 600 days (counting!), at home. No, really. I have. But if for you, daily exercise means chasing your kids around the apartment block, walking your dog, strolling from the dining room to the bed room, or a yoga session on the terrace, why look sloppy and sweaty, when you can look stylish and sassy. I will leave you to pick your top or sports bra, but here’s my pick of joggers and shorts that are functional, look good and are affordable. I've even tried them, so you don't need to. Shop away! 


    Straight Capris From Infinia

    For light jogging or walking, these Infinia’s capris tights are ideal. Available in six colours including a lovely pink and a mint green, they don’t slip off your waist as you pick up speed! But more importantly, they are made from a fairly thick fabric which ensure that not only do they keep your legs snug and non-jiggly, but they are thick enough to make sure there are no panty lines. We don't really recommend them for hardcore workouts or over complex yoga!

    Casual Joggers From Togs & Terre

    These ones are perfect hybrid joggers - wear them to the park with a t-shirt or with a crop top to lunch. They’re light and flexible so there’s no hindrance even when you’re properly running. Get them in green, blue, purple or black. Or just get all! They also have pockets which means no need to have the silly arm band on you. Just put your phone in the pocket, with that loose change for post run chai at the park! 

    Contrast Pink Shorts From Agil Athletica

    Now if you’re a serious runner, or serious about looking like a runner, these are for you! These shorts come with a contrast waistband and side hem for that added edge, but with the comfort of a drawstring. Don’t we know how tough it can be when the elastic wears off a bit, and the shorts keep slipping! No more though. What I really like is that these come in different contrast colours and not just black. Think pink-white-grey, green-white-grey and even a black-grey-cream. Sitting just below the waist, and about 8 inches above the knee, you might get some looks from random people in the park, but I think these have enough coverage to make you feel comfortable. 

    Pink Joggers From KICA

    I’ve been a fan of KICA for a while now. Not only do they get comfort on-point, but they don’t compromise on style at all. Like these joggers. Chic, soft and functional, they have drawstrings, pockets (yes!) and they can easily be worn outside of the gym or running track too. They are also a bit rain-resistant (from when I tried them) winning them brownie points! 

    Track Pants From ISU

    These ones are what you need for everyday workouts - be it a Zumba session or a jog on the treadmill. Fuss-free and functional, they’re even good to lounge about at home in. Made from polyester, this pair is also opaque whichever colour you buy. So go ahead, and get the light colours too if you like. 

    Lounge Shorts From The Short Store

    Yoga, aerobics, hiking, running or seriously lounging on the sofa, these shorts from The Short Store are perfect for plenty of things. Soft, comfortable and with pockets, they are really versatile. Stock up for all you (pretend) activities. It’s athleisure attire after all! 

    Decathlon

    Easily the go-to for all things sporty and loungewear these days, Decathlon has really nailed it on design, comfort and price. I am a huge fan of their running gear and these shorts are my top favourite. So much so that I have three of the same kind! By Kalenji, these are super light, comfortable and can be fastened with the drawstring. They are a bit short, but not too short to make you feel awkward. Besides, the fabric doesn't ride up at all. It's a quick-dry one so if you're a sweaty mess (as you should be!) post running or working out, then count on these shorts to not make you look it! I also love that there's a neat little zip on the back at the waist. They say it is for your phone, but really it's just for a little MP3 player or maybe car keys and money at most.

    Simple and straightforward, I got these ones for dance days and a bit of yoga. While they are also fine for light jogging, I found they tend to slip a bit for heavy sports and running. But they are really snug and sit tight on the hips and through to the ankles. Despite that, the BCI cotton they're made of ensure they're soft and comfy. At INR 1,499 at full price, they are definitely worth it. But more so if you sneak onto Myntra and get them for about INR 800 on most days. Or even on Puma on sale days! This one is almost eternally there! 

    H&M Jersey Joggers

    I recently got myself these jersey joggers from H&M (from Myntra not their official website) and for INR 799, they're bang for your buck! If you live in a little warm town or city, then wait for temperatures to dip as these are knitted jersey joggers. I specifically love that they drawstrings are long and don't get undone with one little twist of the waist. Plus, they're also mid-rise so even more comfortable when doing exercises. The downside is this pair has no pockets. 

    PS: Oh, and if you're wondering where Nike is...well, not here on this list. I love the brand's apparel and shoes, but their lower end stuff like basic tees for INR 500, or tracks for INR 600 are just not quite as is just not up to the mark, I feel!
