By this point, you're probably well aware of the amazingness that is dresses with pockets. Once it became a trend, women all around the world rejoiced for finally having a place to put their things. And now that the practical trend has expanded to leggings with pockets, going about your workouts hands-free is a breeze.

Whether you're heading to the gym, a class, or going on a run, rocking a pair of leggings with pockets enables you to have a safe place for your phone, keys, and credit card—basically everything you need. That means no more storing anything in your sports bra (we've all done it!) or putting your important possessions in a cubby... and hoping they're still there once you return.

If you want to give leggings with pockets a go, these nine options are both cute and functional.
