18 Must-Have Leggings From Amazon

If the past year or so has taught us anything, athleisure is more than just a state of mind. It’s a lifestyle. As I put my recurring clothing favorites on the bench during the early stages of quarantine, I brought a slew of new clothing players to my roster. Soon enough, I was on a mission to find the perfect sweatshirt, sweatpants, and most important of them all: leggings.

When it comes to leggings, I tend to be a bit of a serial dater. My bank account may detest me, but when it comes to comfort, I’ll buy and try anything. The right pair of leggings compliments you at all hours of the day, can hold up during the toughest of Netflix binge-watches workouts, and are so comfortable, the thought of putting on real pants again makes you queasy. My quest for the perfect pair hasn’t been in vain, because I found the 18 best pairs of leggings sold on Amazon. So whether you need a high-waist pair or ones that don’t have seams, I got just the pair for you. Shop our edit of the best leggings ahead.
