There’s no denying the fact that leggings have become a wardrobe staple for doing pretty much anything (thanks, Outdoor Voices!) Sure we all wear them to exercise, but there’s also nothing better for lounging, running errands, walking the dog, or subbing in for actual pants than a trusty pair of leggings. And everyone has that one pair they’re absolutely obsessed with.
If you’re on a fitness kick and looking to ramp up your workout wardrobe, or are on the hunt for that perfect comfy travel outfit, we’ve got you covered.
We asked a few of our favorite Stylemakers to reveal the one pair of leggings they can’t live without, and the results have us wondering why we would ever wear anything else. Enter: the new MVP of your wardrobe.
“These leggings have it all. I do a healthy combination of yoga and high intensity exercise. I love having a pair of leggings that seamlessly move between both while maintaining quality and staying up. The mélange chevron leggings have a beautiful material (soft, a perfect weight, stretchy while keeping compression…and no pilling!) and I love the heathered beige look. I’m super into creams and neutrals right now and these go with everything.” —Riley Blanks, Founder of WOKE Beauty.
“With their high inseam, flattering fabric, and super soft and stretchy material, the Alo High Waisted Airlift Leggings are my absolute go to! They keep their shape wear after wear, and allow for ease of movement without having to constantly adjust the pants throughout rolling, rebounding, or dancing. And I never feel an uncomfortable squeeze at the midline. Plus they look great on, as they accentuate all the right places! —Lauren Roxburgh, Author/Body Empowerment Educator
“My favorite legging is the Vuori Daily legging. I love it because it holds everything in and makes my legs feel skinnier!” –-Tiana Gamble, Founder, Bikini Bird
“The Alo Yoga high waisted airbrush legging are my favorite, hands down, all day, every day! The material holds up, they are the perfect high waist, and I have been known to wear them with a rocker tee and boots to travel and I still feel chic.” ––Kelly LeVeque, author and celebrity nutritionist
“These are the greatest leggings. They are so soft and cozy yet are fitted and hold you in place. I love them for running errands and working out!” –Lauren Scruggs Kennedy, Author and Blogger
“These hold you in and make your butt look amazing while you’re working out — but they’re also comfy enough to lounge in and chic enough to wear with sneakers and an oversized sweater while running errands.” –-Camille Styles, Founder Camille Styles
“I’m obsessed with these ALO YOGA leggings because they’re high waisted, great quality, and super stretchy. They’re by far the most flattering work out leggings and don’t slip down when I’m moving around. I also wear them to travel in!” –Kat Tanita, Founder With Love From Kat
The OV TechSweat line is buttery soft and perfect for just about anything. From high sweat or high lounge activity, these are my goto pair of leggings. The high waist keeps it all in tight without feeling like you’re suffocating. I also love the bright colors — pair with a plain gray or white tshirt and sneakers, and you’re ready to tackle the day! –Kat Fluor, Editor Camille Styles
