I Found Every Legging Trend Worth Knowing This Season

If your legging drawer just looks like a sea of black these days, to the point where you can’t even tell the various pairs apart, today we’re here to change things up. After all, when dressing cool for the gym can be so simple, why not just give it a go?

Whether it’s the latest color trend, the must-know prints, or the little detail that makes a big difference (even on a black pair), I’ve rounded the top five—make that the only five—legging trends to know about for S/S 19 so you can be as up to date in your activewear as you are with your shoes, handbags, and more. To read about the trends that made the cut, see them in action, and, of course, shop my picks for each one, just keep scrolling. After that, find anything else you could possibly want to read about leggings right here.

1. Pastel

The bold colors of seasons past are being overshadowed by lighter, softer hues for spring and summer. 

2. Lace-Up

Lace-up waistlines are the new must-have detail. The V shape created by the lacing is also a flattering bonus.

3. Animal Print

I took a few seasons, but the resurgence of animal print has finally made its way into activewear, too.

4. Capri Length

This cropped cut looks as good at the gym as it does for a night out when paired with pumps

5. Camo

Touching on the S/S 19 utility trend, camo is among the most common legging prints we're seeing right now.
