How To Wear Leggings Outside of the Gym

Posted by Violeta Castaneda on

I think we can all agree that when we’re in the middle of an intense kickboxing class, bike ride, or run, the last thing we want to do is worry about our workout pants sliding down. There’s almost nothing more annoying than being totally focused on the workout at hand only to realize we may be close to exposing a little bit more of ourselves than we’d like to (not that I’ve ever been there—ahem).

Fortunately, high waisted workout leggings are available to keep us looking and feeling our best when we’re getting our sweat on. These closet staples never fail to keep us looking our best even when we’re feeling our worst. But why should we keep them hidden at the gym? Doesn’t a piece of clothing this comfortable and—let’s be honest—totally figure-flattering deserve to have a little more time in the sun? We think so, and designers seem to agree.

Today’s high rise leggings are ultra-stylish, coming in a wide variety of colors and patterns that you’ll want to wear no matter where you go. And don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at these leggings and you’ll be convinced that they’re for more than hitting up the gym.

First up we have these gorgeous Ruby Vanish Camo Side Stripe Capris. They feature a bold, red camo pattern that is perfect for wearing out and about on any day! We love that the pattern isn’t too loud or overwhelming because they’re able to match many different tops. Pair these knee length leggings with a black or white tunic and some strappy sandals for a cute daytime look perfect for grabbing brunch with a friend. Or throw on an oversize sweater and some tennis shoes for cozy weekend outfit you won’t want to take off.

Sometimes you just can’t beat the Camo prints like these Olive Vanish Camo Side Stripe Leggings. Your legs will look a mile long as these leggings hug every curve. Plus, they’re endlessly versatile. Pair them with your favorite cardigan and boots for an effortlessly pulled-together look that’s perfect for running errands, hitting up a movie or a coffee date. Or dress them out for a night on the town by pairing them with a crop top and heels. These are thick black leggings that can most definitely be worn as pants—don’t listen to the haters out there!

If you’re a fan of the Dark colored bottoms, you’ll love these Holocam Dark Green High Waisted Leggings. This particular camo pattern reminds us of the popular out-of-this-world design. And we love how there are so many colors incorporated because it makes it easy to find a colored top to pair with them. Try pairing them with a light colored long-sleeved tee and some slip-ons for a comfortable yet stylish outfit that works perfectly for a day you know you’ll be on the go. Or add a cute tank in any matching color and some flip flops for a look that will keep you cool on even the hottest days.

Do you love all things glitter and sparkles? Then you’ll adore these Disco High Waisted Leggings. They feature a pattern that’s meant to catch the eye and look like a sprinkling of glitter for a look that can be dressed up for formal events—like a first date with the guy you’ve been eyeing up at the gym. We recommend pairing them with a short dress in a solid color and some strappy heels for an evening look that’s sure to turn heads. Or, if dresses aren’t your thing, these look equally great with an oversized sweater and sleek knee high boots for a look that’s equal parts cozy and stylish.High waisted leggings have become more than a workout staple. They’ve shown that their classic combination of comfort and style lends itself just as well to outfits outside of the gym—whether for the day or night. It’s all about picking complementary pieces of clothing that you feel good in and then wearing your leggings with confidence.
