This super-flattering legging is your studio-to-street go-to, for both value and fit (some of our readers swear that this is the best fitting legging out there). The comfy tight comes in solids and eye-catching patterns—florals, stripes, even clouds—for endless outfit possibilities.
This subtle—yet fashion-forward—legging adds a bit of edge to the classic yoga pant. Throw on your favorite leather jacket and no one at work would ever guess that you just came from bootcamp. In fact, Well+Good reader Christy notes that she’s more likely to wear her Motos out than she is to the gym!
The name says it all. Well+Good readers love how comfortable, affordable, and versatile this pant is. One reader’s favorite street look? Pairing her black Zellas with boots and a long plaid button-down for post-pilates errands.
Well+Good readers rack up the compliments whenever they rock one of the brand’s signature prints. The New York City-based brand is known for its eye-catching, lightweight leggings that, according to frequent wearers, dry nearly instantly after a sweaty session at the gym.
This NYC-based brand is by yogis, for yogis—and, apparently, anyone who goes straight from savasana to socializing. Well+Good readers especially love the stripe collection; Alysa T notes that if you’re not looking to make “a bold statement,” try their Jody Stripe print.
