Cute under short dresses, comfy for lounging and stretchy enough for workouts, cropped leggings are must-have.
High-waisted leggings are universally comfortable, flattering and won’t roll down no matter how much you move around.
If you’re mainly wearing your leggings for working out—whether a jog around the block or a jaunt to the gym—the convenience of storing essentials such as your phone, ID or credit card in a built-in pocket is a must. Just be sure your leggings have enough stretch to hold your items in place while providing you with support and compression to get through your workout. Thick leggings made from material like spandex is always a good place to start.
If you like lounging around the house in your capris, look for a breathable cotton pair with lots of stretch. The capri length keeps you from getting hot, but they’re cozier and easier to stretch in than a pair of shorts. Look for a tagless pair if you can for ultimate comfort.
