Amazon’s annual Prime Day flash sale is the holy grail of budget-friendly online shopping. And just like in real life, there’s a natural impulse to start adding every steeply discounted item that crosses your path into your cart, clicking buy, and then sorting out what actually sparks joy in your life later. So, to save you the hassle of needing to declutter down the road, I’ve gone through and curated a list of workout tights that actually deserve space in your leggings drawer.
The clear winners here are styles with universally flattering design elements such as high waistlines or 7/8th inseams (which can make your legs look longer), those made from performance fabrics with compression, 4-way stretch, and sweat-wicking capabilities, plus pairs offered in classic colorways that’ll go with basically everything. Yes, that includes old faithfuls like black and navy. But you’ll also find new neutrals—think: earth tones and pastel hues—in the mix.
The selects below definitely skew seasonless, but I’ve also thrown in more than a few pairs of novelty leggings that are picking up on some of the biggest trends in activewear this summer: metallics, color-blocking, mesh inserts, lacing, varsity details, graphic prints. And if you’re quick, you might just be able to snag a pair from beloved activewear lines like Beyond Yoga, Reebok, and Adidas. But no matter the maker, one thing holds true for all the options below: Nothing feels better than sweating in a pair of expensive leggings for which you didn’t pay full price.
