The Best Leggings for Summer According to a Pro

The best leggings for summer Olivia Culpo



We’re in the middle of spring, which means that summer will be here before you know it. And if you plan on working out on the regular or simply love the appeal of athleisure (because let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), you’re going to want to get in on the best leggings for summer.

Whether you’re prepping for that brand-new swimsuit or want something easy to throw on for running errands or brunch, a pair of leggings makes for a chic and comfortable option. Of course, when you’re working with the heat of summer, having the right pair of leggings is key. So we asked personal trainer and health coach Jill de Jong for her expertise on what to search for when you’re shopping for your next workout outfit.

“Look for soft, stretchy, and breathable fabrics,” she says (since you’re more likely to sweat more). “Go for a beautiful print or combine different shades of pinks, grays, blues, and purples for a summer feeling.” The trainer also mentions that anything you can wear from the gym to the streets will look great during the summer when you have those coffee runs.
