This Is Where Our Editors Discover All Their Cheap Leggings



Sure, we spend a lot of time sitting side by side, taking meetings, and chatting all things fashion, but that doesn't mean Who What Wear's team of editors thinks about fashion the same way. We each have our own unique sense of style, along with our own list of go-to places to shop for trends and everyday staples. One piece that we all have in our closest: a great pair of leggings. While some of us wear them to brunch, others to yoga, and others on a 10k run, we all consider this athleisure staple to be a key piece in our wardrobes.

So where does each of us turn when we're looking for a comfortable and flattering pair of leggings under $100? Well, as it turns out, there are plenty of options. Below each member of team Who What Wear shares the spot they always rely on for affordable leggings. No matter what your own personal style may be, we've found (and worn) the leggings for you. Read on to check out our favorites below!

Michelle Scanga, managing editor

"I'm not gonna lie—I've scored some pretty solid 'trendy' leggings from Forever 21. I wouldn't suggest it if you're looking for a high-performance option, but if you're looking for a cute matching set or leggings to run errands in, Forever 21 is an affordable goldmine."

Nicole Akhtarzad, market editor

"I love the selection of Puma leggings on Revolve. They're all under $50 or under and strike the perfect balance of streamlined yet eye-catching."

Kat Collings, editor in chief

"Joylab has the best leggings for the price. The high waist keeps everything in place, so you don't have to worry about your top riding up. I'm also way into the ribbed cotton-y texture."

Lauren Eggertsen, fashion editor

"I always reach for a pair of solid black leggings when planning my workout outfits, and H&M always has a great selection. They hug me in all the right places and are so affordable that I honestly can never resist."

Aemilia Madden, editor

"I've been a longtime fan of Outdoor Voices' selection of leggings. They're comfortable—with a great rise and form-fitting compression—but they're also just plain fun. Great for yoga or running errands around town."

Gina Marinelli, senior editor

"I used to shop Danskin often when I was much younger and dance school was a top priority. Today I wear fewer leotards, but I can still appreciate a $22 pair of leggings from the brand."

Allyson Payer

"Girlfriend Collective leggings are so good—tons of color and size options—and they have just enough compression to be insanely flattering. I think it's a steal that this style is only $58."

Anna LaPlaca

“I'm a fan of Nordstrom's in-house activewear line, Zella. Its classic high-waisted leggings are a bit thicker than most, which makes them my favorite pair for lounging and traveling.”

Kristen Nichols

"There's nothing better than Nike's high-waisted leggings—especially when I can get them on sale."

Available in sizes XS to XL.
