The Best (And Comfiest) Workout Leggings To Wear To The Gym And Everywhere Else

Walk in them, run in them – or just lounge around in them.

If you haven't given in to the stretchy call of leggings, now's the time to take the plunge. They're unbeatable when it comes to practical-yet-comfortable dressing. Wear yours with a supersized hoodie à la Kaia Gerber. Or, channel Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, who wear theirs with comfy casuals for trips to the gym/coffee shop for green juice.

Remember that if you're working out, always look for technical fabrics and clever design details. Marks & Spencer has launched the next drop of Goodmove, featuring top-to-toe workout outfits which are ideal for mat exercises. Their 7/8 workout leggings come with a seriously handy secure back pocket, a genius design feature in our book. These sell-out leggings sold a whopping 45,000 pairs in the first couple of weeks; we highly recommend. For those based in London, M&S Goodmove is hosting a pop-up in Covent Garden all month; head down to check out the collections for yourselves.

What with a mixture of WFH and heading to the gym, shops or office, we're spending more and more time dressed in multi-purpose workout wear. In the fashion world, Dior created a collection full of our favourite workout gear for the Resort '22 collection. While for SS22, Burberry gave us a whole host of slinky leggings to look forward to.

Head to Varley for brilliant prints and Lululemon for their iconic leggings in multiple lengths, while Ernest Leoty is your one-stop-shop for beautiful block colours that will make you feel motivated (or a little more cheerful, at the very least).

For mat-based exercises where you're doing stretches, Arket's Seamless™ Yoga Tights fit the bill. They're made from a recycled polyamide and have ventilating patterns at the inseam and backs-of-knees for extra breathability or head to Alo Yoga, loved by yogis everywhere.

Heist, the hosiery brand with a cult fan following (and for good reason) has currently got £26 off its Everyday leggings which do exactly what they say on the tin. Everyday workout leggings for everyday life. Race you there.
