Though we’ve long settled the “are leggings pants?” debate (yes, shut up, of course they are), the quest for finding the perfect pair of leggings to make it through the gym, an afternoon running errands or some time cuddling up on the couch is still an eternal one. After all, how can you really be sure they can withstand your sweatiest and most intense spin class and your most low-key binge-watching days?

When hunting for your new favorite pair of leggings, there’s plenty to consider: Is the fabric breathable? How does it handle sweat and all the smells that come with it? Is the waist comfortable? Does it have pockets? You want something that will work with the rest of your wardrobe but also probably don’t want to look in your drawers and see different versions of the same pair looking back at you. There are plenty of prints, designs and styles that can keep your leggings, sweatshirt, and sports bra combos looking fresh and cute.

Here are a few of our favorite versatile leggings to keep you comfy no matter what your day has in store. Once you find the right fit and vibe for you, you’ll never want to let them go — and, okay, you probably will want to buy three more identical pairs, let’s be real.

Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
