Yep, bootcut leggings—or “jazz pants”—are here as a coveted next-level legging trend.

The beauty of these stretchy pants is they can really be dressed up or down to create a chic, forward look without sacrificing comfort one bit. Hence the reason why the fashion crowd continues to embrace the trend. If you’ve been curious about incorporating bootcut leggings and yoga pants into your arsenal, keep scrolling to check out some of the best styles you can buy. You’ll also find some outfit inspiration mixed in as well to showcase the pants in action.
