The Best Leggings at Every Price
Getting to the gym: It’s already one of the hardest parts of your day and, in some cases, the biggest hit to your wallet. Add in the insanely overpriced workout clothes and exercising becomes less about healthy living and more about, um, actually having the funds to live. Take a deep breath—it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are the best leggings that’ll give you the motivational boost you deserve, at a dollar amount you can deal with.
Under $25: Most Comfortable
With over 1,000 positive reviews on Amazon, these leggings deserve their cult-like following. Incredibly soft and available in ten different colors, they’re great for the occasional downward dog and Netflix-binge.
Under $25: Most Moisture-Wicking
Made with top-of-the-line performance spandex and ventilating mesh panels, throw these on to up your cycling game.
Vesi Star ($20)
Under $25: Most Fashion-Forward
Although these leggings are seamless, they feature fake pocket-slits in the front to double their shelf life—wear with a structured blouse and your coworkers will be none the wiser.
Under $50: Most Comfortable
If something works, why change it, right? Although Zella has other styles, the Live-in’s are the top seller by a wide margin thanks to their thick (and chafe-free) fabric.
Under $50: Most Moisture-Wicking
What do you get when you combine the sportswear powerhouse of Adidas and the style chops of Stella McCartney? A seriously stylish, ready-for-anything legging.
Under $50: Most Fashion-Forward
Although technically meant for skiing or barre class, we find that these stirrups are even better when teamed with a statement blouse and slides.
Silence + Noise ($49)
Under $100: Most Comfortable
With an almost-too-good-to-be-true velvet softness, this pair also features a taller than normal waistband that hugs you in all the right places.
Beyond Yoga ($97)
Under $100: Most Moisture-Wicking
The built-in compression panels in these tights add extra support to tired muscles mid-workout, and the lightweight fabric has super-fast-drying capabilities, so even if you're dripping in sweat, your outfit won't be.
Sweaty Betty ($85)
Under $100: Most Fashion-Forward
Not only is this pair a best seller for the trendy brand, they even have a thousands-of-people-long waitlist every time the item comes back in stock. We chalk it up to the fact that the sleek design looks good with sneakers on the treadmill and heels at a bar.
