    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. High-waisted leggings from Aerie's Offline collection, aka my holy grail, wear every single day, absolute favorite pair of leggings. They're stretchy, soft, and perfect for both working out or hanging out. I simply adore them.

    2. Cropped leggings you'll easily be able to wear to work out or to scroll endlessly through your Instagram feed — they're stretchy and have a nonhugging fit that'll feel appropriate for either activity. We love a two-for-one piece of clothing!

    3. Basic leggings with more than 15,000 (!!!) 5-star reviews — hit *add to cart* and rest easy knowing they're a verified great purchase. And just think of how fab they'll look with an oversized sweater!

    4. Girlfriend Collective compressive high-rise leggings you can count on to stay in place — because no one wants pants that bunch or sag.

    5. Fleece-lined faux leather leggings that'll add a little *somethin', somethin'* to your relaxed look.

    6. Or Spanx faux leather leggings, in case you're a sweaty human like myself and a fleece-lined option simply won't do.

    7. Super soft leggings from Target designed with a moisture-wicking fabric for your workout sessions *and* beyond — I personally wear these while working from my kitchen all day long.

    8. Opaque leggings you'll find yourself gravitating to every day as they'll easily go with pretty much all of your cold weather wardrobe. Sweatshirts? Yep. Sweaters? Sure! Jackets? Also, a yes.

    9. Black leggings from Terez with a subtle star design on them to ensure no matter where you're going or what you're doing you'll look *out of this world*.

    10. High-waisted leggings reviewers say are super stretchy and not see-through at all — they'll be there for you whether you have big plans to watch an entire season of The Crown on your couch or break a sweat during a YouTube workout.

    11. Tried-and-true Old Navy workout leggings, a must-have for anyone who wants a reliable pair without breaking the bank. I promise you won't be sorry. The material is both comfortable and supportive, making them great for all kinds of activities.

    12. Leggings with a pop of color to 'em and side pockets to store your phone, keys, and credit card so you can head out on your early morning run hands-free but still be prepared in case you want to pick up a coffee on your way back.

    13. Some ribbed leggings that may look like simple black leggings from afar, but up close they reveal a cozy knit fabric made for curling up on the couch with a mug of hot cocoa (or your preferred cozy-time beverage).

    Promising review: "A necessary addition to a casual wardrobe! Comfy and great for pairing with any number of things!" –anonymous

    Get them from Old Navy for $6.97+ (available in XS–4X, three lengths, and in eight colors). 

    14. Madewell high-rise knit leggings, because they're a bit more structured and'll stay in place as needed. You'll love pairing them with your favorite oversized tees and sweatshirts.

    15. Leggings made with 5% spandex that may make you stray out of your comfort zone and actually buy them in a color other than black (gasp!).

    16. Splurge-worthy black leggings that are so soft you'll never want to take them off — seriously I've basically been wearing mine for months now.

    17. Mesh-cutout leggings you'll be glad you added into your line-up. They just have a little extra *somethin' somethin'* that basic black leggings don't and reviewer's say they're squat-proof!

    18. Onyx crossover-waist leggings because you absolutely need to have a cozy but stylish option on deck at all times. Spoiler: these are IT — they even have pockets!

    19. Leggings with a soft band that won't dig into your mid-section (yay!), also because if you’re anything like me your sister absolutely stole your favorite ones and is holding them hostage until you give her back HER favorite sweater. Jokes on you, sweetie, I'm buying THESE.

    20. Pocket leggings with a no-slip fit to prevent you from pausing your workout or running sesh to pull the ol' pants up again (I'm extremely guilty of this).

    21. Or leggings with an extra-high waistband that'll also do the trick — they'll stick to you like glue even during your most advanced yoga poses.

    22. Zella black high-waisted leggings made with moisture-wicking fabric and a no-slip waistband you'll wear for working out just as much as lounging around.

    23. Cropped maternity leggings from Missguided, designed to fit you from your fifth month of pregnancy. At this price you won't mind only being able to wear them for a short period of time!

    24. High-waisted leggings, complete with pockets and a comfortable material that'll make you want to retire your denim forever.

    25. Pocketed Athleta leggings designed with a breathable fabric so you can tackle squats or the Stairmaster without worry about overheating.

    26. Super soft control leggings because the ones that were there for you throughout the "Great Work From Home of 2020–21" would really like a day off.

    27. Leggings that'll make hisstory as one of your most beloved pants purchases — they feature sweat-wicking technology to help keep you looking and feeling cool during your sweat sesh.

    28. Leggings made with 8% spandex that make them feel comfortable (not binding at all) and a soft brushed material that'll make you want to curl up in a ball next to your cat and lounge all day long.

    29. Eco-friendly bamboo leggings that are super stretchy and lined with fleece, making them the perfect addition to any legging lover's winter wardrobe.

    30. Over-the-heel leggings you'll want to rock on and off the yoga mat. These black leggings stay put when you're on the move, but still give your feet enough traction during your workouts.

    31. Some high-waisted leggings with a buttery smooth feel to them that've inspired many reviewers to say these feel like "wearing nothing" which, honestly, sounds ideal to me.

    32. A handy pair of cropped black leggings with a high-waist design and side pockets to keep everything in place. Plus, they keep your legs warm without being *too* warm.

    33. Sherpa-lined leggings, which will be your go-to pair during the colder months. These bad boys offer all the comfort and easy styling potential of regular leggings, but with a ton of cozy warmth.

    34. Black flared leggings with a high-waited crossover design that'll make you seriously consider getting rid of all other bottoms in your wardrobe.

    35. Some moisture-wicking workout leggings made with quick-drying and cool-to-the-touch fabric so you can feel confident that nothing is *ahem* swampy, even during your sweatiest of sweat sessions.
