    25 Pairs Of Leggings That'll Make You Breakup With Your Jeans

    My aesthetic is best described as "wears leggings to everything."

    1. High-waisted leggings comparable to products from pricier brands, but have no fear! These are significantly more affordable.,

    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off of Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and love their Align pants, but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. But this isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft, and it pills and gets caught on everything. These have light compression, give a nice booty lift, and are not see-through...even when squatting. I love love love these and am going to order several more! I actually kind of want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on leggings in the past when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost. If you're a Lulu lover, you should really give these a chance!" —Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $15.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 44 colors).
