Having racked up over 25,000 reviews, some admit to having multiple pairs since this style comes in 55+ colorways, so we can't blame them.

They hold my phone perfectly and the pockets are thick and well made so I never worry about my phone falling out. They ARE NOT SEE THROUGH EITHER!!!!!! Yaaaas, THEY ARE SQUAT PROOF LADIES, no more having to be self conscious when while wearing leggings!!!!!!!!!" —Candace Marie

    3. Knit jeggings since we're OK with pseudo denim if it's in the form of pants that resemble all the qualities of our go-to leggings — these are even thick enough to be paired with a cropped sweater and heels.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these pants. I have them in the black and the dark blue wash. They go with everything and are so comfortable that I want to wear them everyday! I usually wear premium denim but I am reaching for these now. The price is definitely right at $20. They look good with boots, flip-flops, or tennis shoes. If you’re on the fence, get these." —DM Lover

    4. Tie-dye sweatpants because it might finally be time to swap your high school sweats for a cute and comfy 'fit that has so many days of the week covered you'll literally never experience a wardrobe rut again! 🙌

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this pant! I bought the sweatshirt to match. It fit exactly how I wanted it to (slightly loose) on my petite yet curvy frame. I’ve washed the set several times on delicate/warm cycle, then have hung to dry and it still looks brand new. I wear this at least once a week..LOVE IT. Mine seems mostly light purple with a splash of pink...perfect tie dye color combo." —carolynjbraden

    Get them from Amazon for $44.90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in four colors).

    5. Faux leather leggings (that reviewers say make the perfect Spanx dupe!) because sometimes we want the confidence of Sandy from Grease without having to shell out the big bucks.

    Promising review: "I actually had the Spanx faux leather leggings in my house when I received these to compare side by side. I loved the Spanx ones but couldn’t justify the $100 price. I wondered if there was a dupe on Amazon...this is it!! The fabric, material, and look is IDENTICAL to the Spanx. The fit is exactly the same as well. (BTW I sized up to a L from my normal M as they run a bit tight) Both leggings even have the same red ribbon label sewn into the waistband. They definitely must be from the same manufacturer. Only difference is the outer side seam of these is sewn in a slightly different way than Spanx...but who would know! I sent the Spanx back and am stoked to have the exact same look for 1/3 of the price!!!" —Alexis

    Get it from Amazon for $39.74+ (available in sizes XS–4XL and three colors).

    6. Tie-front paper bag pants with chic and cutesy bows, for the put-together style you'll want in your arsenal once the time has come to hit the outside world. These'll take you from brunch to dinner no problemo.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Not too tight, not too loose! They were comfy and fit as expected! I have pink and black. I wore pink for a party and black for my birthday and got soooo many compliments both times!" —Yasmine Preston

    Get them from Amazon for $24.09+ (available in sizes S–3XL and six colors).

    7. A pair of lightweight heathered jogger pants otherwise known as: The style making sleepwear an acceptable form of fashion since 2020. These babies have cuffed ankles so they feel a little more put-together than the critter-printed PJ bottoms you've been wearing for the last three days.

    Promising review: "Wow! These are the most comfy joggers. I can wear these in the house or to the store. The material is breathable and soft. I actually plan on hoarding these when I get paid next. Also, you can't beat the price! Buy these! Or don't. More for me!" —Danielle Posey

    Get them from Amazon $24.40 (available in sizes 1X–6X and three colors)

    8. Two-toned tapered pants for when you wake up in a particularly indecisive mood. This fashion forward silo can be paired with just about any top in your closet, and what about footwear? You ask. Sneakers, boots, slippers, you name it these pants are waiting to be paired with all the above.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "To be honest, pants are a drag for me to buy. I'm 5'9, thick thighs, thicker booty, and it's rare that things fit me the way I want (getting them on doesn't always equate to the style I'm going for, if that makes sense). But these pants are awesome. They're just baggy enough to have The Look, but not so baggy that they fall off. They're incredibly comfortable (so much so that my mom wants to buy a pair to sleep in!). I've also washed them a couple times since I bought them and haven't seen any degradation of the material or the color. I'm totally obsessed, I'll definitely be buying another pair in a different style soon!" —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 31 colors).

    9. A palazzo style that exudes "I have a second home in St. Tropez" vibes. This vintage-chic style is laidback enough to join you on the couch, and fancy enough to accompany you on a socially-distanced date.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it :)" —Nash

    Get them from Amazon for $12.74 (available in sizes XS–3XL and 25 colors).

    10. High-rise waist leggings complete with ankle pleats that we cannot stop drooling over. Workout pants, but make them fancy as heck? Yes, please. We'll have one in every color opt.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love the stretch on these pants you can actually work out without Worrying about them Falling off. They have great compression to so when your on the run everything stays in place! Amazing color!" —Amy d.

    Get them from Amazon for $15.79 (available in sizes XS–3X and four colors).

    11. Gingham trousers that deserve another year around the sun because they're just that damn cute. Paired with white sneaks and a sweatshirt? Booties and a cardi? Sandals and a tee? Matches made in style heaven, if you ask me.

    12. Squat-proof leggings, I repeat: squat 👏proof 👏 leggings 👏 because the days of working out and lounging around in see-through activewear are behind us. These colorful, stretchy pants stay up, provide support in all the right spots, and have a hidden pocket for your cellphone and ChapStick.

    @getlukafit / Via instagram.com, Lukafit

    Lukafit is a Black woman-owned business based in New York — they specialize in colorful, size-inclusive activewear.

    Promising review: "I use this mostly for exercise, lounging sometimes. I always get compliments from different genders and races. I’ve had all three of my leggings (turquoise, black and purple) since 2018 and they still look and feel amazing! I’ve gained and lost about 30 pounds in this time and they still fit. Very stretchy and comfortable. The design is so cute! Highly recommend!" —Customer

    Get them from Lukafit for $60 (available in sizes S–3XL).

    13. And a pair of jumping-jack proof high-waisted leggings to take you from yoga to your WFH spot and back again. This seamless style feels supportive, provides coverage in all the right places (thanks to their thick fabric), and comes in a *ton* of cute hues.

    Jasmin Sandal / BuzzFeed

    Sound the alarms, people, because I think I've found my dream pair of athleisure. Here's the rundown: these high-waisted leggings (or as they call them on their site: tights) are incredibly deceiving when they first arrive — they appeared to be quite shrunken in the package — but trust me, these mold to your body and have enough stretch that work great for curves. I was sent a sample and am just truly in love with the compression! Since quarantine began, I've been after a cute pair of leggings that would support me, not highlight any lumps and bumps, and have the ability to be worn for multiple activities. And folks, these are IT. I'm also a sucker for a matching set — grab the seamless crop top here!

    Stax is an Australian-based business founded in 2012 and they create trendy pieces that fuse fitness with fashion.

    Promising review: "These leggings are the most flattering and comfortable ones I’ve ever worn, I purchased my first pair a couple of months ago and am now obsessed! This colour is so so gorgeous and flattering on my skin also. They are so soft and are super squat proof! 12/10." —Customer

    Get them from Stax for $59 (available in sizes XS–2XL and five colors).

    14. A wide leg jumpsuit, because here me out: this has a customizable drawstring waist which meets the relaxed yet productive look you're striving for from now 'til the end of the year. Plus, you can throw this under a sweater or thick-knit cardigan and you've got two looks in one!

    Amazon

    I have a very similar jumpsuit in my wardrobe and have been wearing it *non-stop* with everything from bare arms to a turtleneck, and yes, even a cropped cardi. So this piece is what I deem essential and customizable in more ways than one!

    Promising review: "I cannot believe that Amazon converted me into a jumpsuit lover! You have one item that makes a surprisingly flattering outfit. You can lounge at home or add a denim jacket or blazer and head out in this. I cannot believe the comfort and confidence I feel when I'm in this! So so good and this jumpsuit has won me over." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $24.34+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors)

    15. The TikTok ruched leggings known for accentuating le derrière. These stretchy bottoms are ultra high-waisted and are as comfortable as your snooze wear — aka you're not gonna want to sleep on adding these to your closet any longer!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are hands-down my favorite leggings. I love the fit and the feel of them. Would repurchase in every color, and I already have probably six different colors already and I want MORE!! They hold up in the washer/dryer and color doesn't bleed onto other clothes. The only thing I didn't love on the leggings was that the waist band was quite thick; my simple fix for it was just making a small cut on the inside seam and cutting the elastic out, and it makes them fit PERFECTLY." —Aspen

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 21 colors).

    16. A split-leg number for a part-skirt, part-pant look your spring-ready closet is screaming out for. This show-stopping style requires little to no effort, since you can pair it with any and every solid color top in your closet. Or, if you're feelin' ~edgy~, might we suggest your fave band tee?

    Get them from Forever 21 for $34.99 (available in sizes 0X–4X and two colors).

    17. A pair of anything-but-basic black yoga pants. These bad boys have a build-your-own feature, aka they're a must for anyone who wants the ability to pick the size, waistband, and style that best suits their at-home or on-the-go lifestyle.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are awesome! They are snug, but I attribute that to their compression feature. I love the high-waisted top! I’m a preschool teacher, so I am up and down all day long. The top doesn’t roll and they’re not see-through in the back, so I am confident that I’m fully-covered all day long. I have worn them to work out as well and they felt great! I do wish they were a true dark pigment, rather than a gray/blue/black color, but my co-worker told me she didn’t even notice the off-black color even when I paired these with a white and black shirt." —Kasey Sumearll

    Get them from Amazon for $44 (available in sizes XS-3X, high waist and cross waist, tall, short and regular lengths, and in two colors).

    18. A jogger pant for a retro-inspired look that would absolutely win a gold medal for style and comfort. Made from plush cotton terry and a colorblock design, you'll be itching to get up and do a twirl to show these off on your next Zoom meeting.

    Get them from Express for $70 (available in sizes XXS–XL and three colors).

    20. Soft and stretchy cargo pants for a stylish utilitarian look that only give the illusion of a standard skinny pant. The bonus? These are made with a moveable fabric that won't feel like a constricting layer of denim stuck to your skin.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm pretty fit but have big hips so pants are difficult for me. These fit so amazing that I'm ordering more! The fit by calves, thighs, hips butt and waist! They're like magic! Very much worth it! I work retail and tend to only have a couple pairs of work pants at a time. Long wearing does stretch them out. They get loose and slightly baggy on the legs but that didn't bother me at all. Still looked great. And once washed, go right back to where they started. Absolutely love these." —Alix Haley

    Get them from Amazon for $34 (available in sizes 0–16 and seven colors).

    21. Star print joggers to spark some joy into your wardrobe. Soft and easy pants never looked happier, IMHO. And in these, you're guaranteed to boost the mood of everyone in your household. Thoughtful and stylish? The saint walking on this earth is you.

    Modcloth

    Promising review: "I LOVE these joggers. Collectif items tend to run small, so I was pleasantly surprised that these were a perfect fit in my usual size. I'm also tall (5'10), and the length of these was just right. They are stretchier than I was expecting, which definitely adds to the comfort factor. Plus, the pattern is just as bright and fun in person!" —Julia

    Get them from Modcloth for $55 (available in sizes XS–1X).

    22. High-waisted flares that are a) soft to touch, b) stretchy as all heck, and c) have garnered a following of over 10,000 reviewers who refer to these as their "happy pants." If I were you, I'd jump on this trendy bandwagon ASAP.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wore these pants on a first date and they made my booty and thighs look amazing. I also wore these pants to my office job and my coworkers went crazy over them.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 16 colors).

    23. A snug but comfy pair of faux leather pleated straight leg pants that are how you say...? *stunning.* Mainly because they have all the benefits of your soft 'n' easy pants, but are stylish enough to be worthy of a place on your grid.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Wow! I’m obsessed with these faux leather pants. They’re a super rich cognac hue that’s so versatile for fall/winter. They’re fairly high rise and fit snug but not tight through the butt and thighs. I’m also going to get these hemmed a bit because they’re a little long for me as I like a fully exposed ankle. Buy these!! You’ll definitely get compliments!" —pastacountess

    Get them from Nordstrom for $49.90 (originally $98; available in sizes 24–31 and two colors).

    24. A tailored pair of split hem pants since "occasionwear" has not been in your fashion vernacular for the past year. Add these to your want list, if you need to re-up on your ~fancy pants~.

    25. Side-stripe leggings to channel your inner Sporty Spice, because I'll tell ya what I want, what I really, really want: I want luxe fabric that won't lose its stretch or allow my underwear to make an appearance while I run to the store or decide to bend over and do a down dog. Plus! These are squat-proof (case and point below).

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I own a lot of leggings and these really impressed me. Completely squat-proof (not see through at all). They are very comfortable and the color is beautiful! You’d think they were a lot more expensive than they are. Do not hesitate to buy these!" —Alex

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–3X, two lengths, and 31 styles).

    26. Floral print jogging bottoms because Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. We know, we know, but those plain ol' grey ones you used to wear in gym class really do deserve a seasonally stylish upgrade.

    28. Cuffed joggers made a little more delicious with a self-tie waist and a slightly cropped fit. Sure, mom jeans are ~cool~ but what's cool about not being able to scratch your way through thick rigid denim when you've got an itch on the back of your thigh?!

    Amazon
