Yep, These Are the Only Leggings You'll Wear for the Next 3 Months

As we're now in the midst of summer, the weather continues to warm up, and working out seems more and more uncomfortable thanks to the heat. It can already be difficult to motivate yourself to get to your HIIT class or go on a run, never mind when you have to consider the thought of pulling on a pair of thick, sweat-inducing leggings. Sadly, unless you're planning on going to a naked-yoga class, your options remain leggings or shorts, and personally, I'm not trying to sport a pair of teeny, butt-hugging spandex shorts while I burpee and squat-jump my way through my workout.

The solution? Lightweight leggings that can take you from hot yoga (clothes included) to an outdoor run without turning up the heat more than necessary. The key is to look for breathable, quick-drying fabrics like nylon or polyester (there are sustainable options in this category!) and design elements like mesh panels and lace-up detailing. Whether you're looking to get active or just prove that leggings are, in fact, pants, we've rounded up the 20 best leggings for summer below.
