These are the Best Tummy Control Leggings on the Market—Period

Leggings are probably one of the best items of clothing to become a staple in our wardrobes. Not only do they serve as a chic alternative to looser sweatpants and joggers, but they’re also unparalleled in comfort for any sort of activity—whether it’s working out, running errands, or lounging at home. On top of all that, they happen to give your legs an extra lift and added shape—and who doesn’t love that?

If you want to take the shaping effect to the next level, you can always opt for tummy-control leggings. Between high-waisted styles for every day and actual shapewear, these form-fitting bottoms are perfect for the moments you feel your middle section could use an added tuck or extra support.

Yep, These Are the Only Leggings You'll Wear for the Next 3 Months

Yep, These Are the Only Leggings You'll Wear for the Next 3 Months

As we delve deeper into summer, the weather continues to warm up and the gym becomes more packed with legging-clad gymgoers. It can already be difficult to motivate yourself to get to your HIIT class or go on a run, never mind when you have to consider the thought of pulling on a pair of thick, sweat-inducing leggings. Sadly, unless you’re planning on going to a naked yoga class, your options remain leggings or shorts, and personally, I’m not trying to sport a pair of teeny butt-hugging spandex while I burpee and squat-jump my way through my workout.

The solution? Lightweight leggings that can take you from hot yoga (clothes included) to an outdoor run without turning up the heat more than necessary. The key is to look for breathable, quick-drying fabrics like nylon or polyester (there are sustainable options in this category!), and design elements like mesh panels or … Read the rest

At this point, will leggings ever leave our closets? The answer is probably no, and we’re not one bit upset about it.

It Turns Out These Are the Worst Tops to Wear With Leggings

It Turns Out These Are the Worst Tops to Wear With Leggings

We’d never give you a hard no when it comes to wearing certain items with others, because first of all, wearing whatever makes you feel good is a proven mood booster. That said, there are certain “rules” we follow to create the most stylish outfits possible, and leggings tend to be one of those trickier-to-style pieces that we feel warrants some demonstration. After all, leggings have earned a long-lasting spot in our wardrobes for traveling, working out, and lounging.

As for what we’d never wear with leggings? Celebrity stylist Kate Young has a few opinions on the matter. Young works with every Hollywood It girl imaginable—Selena Gomez, Margot Robbie, Dakota Johnson, the list goes on. She told us which are her favorite outfit combinations to wear with leggings, and which top styles to avoid if you want to dress as well as any … Read the rest

I Haven't Worked Out in Six Months—Here's the Outfit Getting Me Back to the Gym

I Haven't Worked Out in Six Months—Here's the Outfit Getting Me Back to the Gym

Here’s the unfortunate truth: I haven’t had a steady workout routine in almost six months. In 2018, I was going to Pilates three times a week, but then some crazy personal and professional stuff happened that still hasn’t let up (did I mention I published a book last month?)—and I hate to say it, but my workout routine was the first thing to get nixed off my priority list.

Now it’s been literally half a year, and I know I have to get back on the horse. But something that’s been holding me back (and I know this sounds like a bad excuse) is that I am so freaking bored with my current fitness wardrobe, which hasn’t been updated since before I stopped exercising. It’s not that easy to get new leggings and sports bras, though. That ish is expensive!

People around the office obviously talk about our sister brand … Read the rest

I Wear Leggings 4 Times a Week—These Are the Shoes I Recommend

I Wear Leggings 4 Times a Week—These Are the Shoes I Recommend

I force myself to work out four times a week and only wear leggings to do so, so I consider myself somewhat of an aficionado when it comes to what shoes to wear with leggings. While I applaud those who experiment with the ways they style the wardrobe staple, when I’m getting ready for a 7 a.m. workout, I prefer to stick to the shoes that I know will look good with every type of leggings. (As a side note, these aren’t necessarily the shoes I work out in. Most of the classes I take are done barefoot or with spin shoes or athletic sneakers.)

The three shoe styles I swear by all have a few things in common: They’re flat, comfortable, easy to get on and off, and they look polished enough for post-workout errands. While some of these may seem a bit obvious, there are … Read the rest

I Tried 9 Pairs of Leggings—Here's My Honest Opinion

Welcome to the latest edition of a new series in which I’ll test out a variety of items from different brands that you want to know about. I’ll give you my honest take in my quest to find the best of the best for you, dear reader. WWW Reviews encompasses everything from trends to staples to fashion utility items and more—basically, anything and everything a fashion girl would want to know about. Next up: leggings.

Aside from being the stretchy pants I wear to exercise, leggings weren’t something that I gave much thought to until the world became obsessed with them circa 2015. Suddenly, my collection of years-old, slightly stretched-out leggings didn’t feel adequate. And since the legging trend has reached a fever pitch, thanks in part to legging-crazed It girls like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, I decided that the time had come to put some of the top … Read the rest
