For obvious reasons, leggings are a wardrobe staple that none of us have plans to part with anytime soon. Wearing them to work out or run errands, or as a comfortable outfit solution for a long road trip, are a few of the most widely accepted situations to don comfy leggings. But if you're hopelessly devoted to them (which you probably are if you're reading this), you'd prefer to wear them for a wider variety of occasions, right? Well, good news. We searched the depths of the internet for the best leggings that look just like trousers. They truly make wearing leggings as pants okay, and that's saying a lot.

In our trouser-like legging research, we were pleased to find that brands have clearly responded to the demand of shoppers wanting leggings that they can wear anywhere and everywhere. For example, there are checked leggings from Zara and H&M for work, leather leggings from J Brand and Helmut Lang for date night, and 19 more options for everything in between.
