Alongside black ankle boots, white T-shirts, jeans, tiny purses, necklaces, and more, leggings are part of a rather lengthy list of things I can confidently say I absolutely do not need any more of in my life. In fact, I likely have too many pairs for someone who barely works out once a week, but, much like the rest of the items that make up the aforementioned list, that doesn’t mean I’ll stop buying them anytime soon.
After all, nothing inspires a weekend workout like the promise of an actually cute athletic outfit, amirite?! And, as I like to tell myself, leggings serve many purposes. You can lounge in them, travel in them, brunch in them, and then, of course, there's the whole exercise thing. Which unnecessary-but-necessary leggings to I have my eyes on right now? Just keep scrolling to see and shop all the unique pairs.
As much as I'm into Hailey's all-black pair (available here), I like the inclusion of white here for the season ahead.
I loved these in black, and now I really love them in lilac.
It's not surprising that these snake-print leggings are among Revolve's best sellers.
There are definitely more out-there styles in this collection, but for some reason, these are just my favorite.
Yes, I needed you to see this whole outfit.
The matching scallop-edge sports bra is pretty much mandatory here.
Also available in more sizes.
I'm taking notes from this epic color combo.
If there was ever a party-ready legging, this is it.
I'm easily sold on anything that comes as a matching set.
I have a feeling these are extremely comfortable.
Am I the only one experiencing a renewed love for Burberry's iconic check print lately?
Not even activewear is exempt from the animal-print trend.
A little asymmetry never hurt nobody.
When you want to be fun but still wear as little color as possible.
Sometimes it's the little things.
I love a camo moment.
I had to throw these in, too.
Just the right amount of mesh.
Perfect for night-runners… or simply good photo ops.
