Blair Waldorf infamously claimed that “tights are not pants.” We respectfully disagree. I stop short of attending a wedding in leggings (so far), but I can make it work for almost any occasion. Leggings serve a higher purpose beyond the gym. And as a legging aficionado, I’ve tried them all. From HIT workouts to going to work, these are the absolute best leggings of 2019.

Epic Lux Leggings



Great For: High-Intensity Workouts

As a sadomasochist that honestly enjoys a burpee-to-box-jump, I can say nothing holds me in better than Nike leggings. Their compression fabrics are unrivaled, making them ideal for HIT training and cardio workouts. 


Align Leggings

Great For: General Workouts

My go-to pair for any kind activity is Lululemon’s cult favorite Align leggings. They aren’t as intense as Nike’s styles, but I use them for hiking, yoga, and running to the grocery store. Bonus: they make your butt look great.

Jersey Leggings



Great For: Lounging

We’d rather watch Russian Doll naked, but sometimes we have to wear pants. That’s what H&M’s super cozy pair is ideal for. The waistband is non-restricting, and therefore non-judgmental. Pull these on for the only kind of marathons you participate in: Netflixing. 


Printed Stretch-Jersey Leggings



Great For: Fashion-ing 

If you want leggings that stunt, Versace is it. The brand leans in to their ’90s aesthetic, and their iconic scarf print is made for lycra. Cop the matching sports bra for athleisure that’s heavy on the leisure but also works for a girl’s night out. 


High Waisted Leggings



Great For: Having a Budget

Leggings might be the very last thing on your expenses list, but thankfully Amazon has a pair that checks off all your boxes. With 22 colors and 4,800 rave reviews—all for under $10—these are totally worth it. 


Side-Zip Ponte Leggings



Great For: Business Meetings

Leggings aren’t reserved for work outs, unless you consider managing your boss’s expectations equal to cardio. Gap makes some of our favorite slacks, and these leggings are as comfortable as workwear can get. 


Stretch Leggings



Great For: Sleeping

Sleeping in tight clothing can lead to dire bacterial health down there. The solution is finding a breathable fabric. All leggings have spandex (for the stretch!), but the leggings from Uniqlo are 93% cotton, meaning they are airier than most tights.
