Leggings, Best Leggings, Leggings Styles

Leggings are an essential staple in almost every modern woman’s wardrobe. They’re comfortable, versatile, practical, and ultra-trendy. If the only leggings you own are basic black leggings and athletic styles, however, it’s time to branch out.

While essential black leggings will always be a classic go-to for casual everyday wear, they aren’t the only type of leggings that are worth wearing. Expand your comfy wardrobe with these five practical and stylish types of leggings you won’t realize you needed until you add them to your collection.

1. Patterned Leggings

Patterned leggings transform basic leggings into a bold fashion statement. If you want to branch out from your basic black leggings but don’t want to leave behind the material and design of your old favorites, try a patterned style.

You can find patterned leggings in bright, colorful prints that you can wear to create whimsical outfits and add instant interest to your looks. If you don’t want to draw too much attention to yourself, go for a style with a more subtle pattern—like neutral stripes or a simple geometric print—for a sleek and stylish finish.

2. Lined Leggings

Leggings are a popular style choice in the winter. However, thin one-layer leggings aren’t always able to keep you warm on cold winter days.

Extra-warm fleece-lined leggings are the perfect comfy compromise on cold, dreary mornings when dragging yourself out of bed and changing out of your pajamas seems unbearable. Plus, you never have to worry about visible panty lines and embarrassing see-through material when you wear lined leggings. For more inspiration on how to style your warmest lined leggings in cold weather, check out this guide to wearing leggings in the winter from HauteFlair.

3. Textured Leggings

If you want to avoid a lazy-day look and turn your basic, comfy leggings into a stand-out fashion statement; invest in a pair or two of textured leggings.

Leggings are available in many different textures apart from the standard stretchy nylon- blend material of basic leggings. Try leather, lace, or velvet styles to add interest and style to your leggings collection.

4. High Waisted Leggings

High waisted leggings double as subtle shapewear and a stylish fashion choice.

These forgiving leggings feature an extra-wide waistband that slims your waist, flattens your tummy, and conceals love handles and muffin top. They are ultra-flattering for any figure, and they pair perfectly with trendy crop tops.

5. Stirrup Leggings

One frustrating problem that tends to arise when you wear leggings—especially when you pair them with ankle boots or sneakers—is material bunching up around your ankles and disrupting the smooth balance of your look.

Having to reach down and adjust your leggings several times during the day to smooth out wrinkled material is inconvenient and frustrating. Stirrup-style leggings can effortlessly solve this problem. These leggings look just like standard full-length leggings, except they feature a small amount of material that slips over your foot to prevent wrinkles and maintain the sleek finish off your look.

Although garter belts became virtually obsolete in their role of holding up women’s everyday stockings by the 1960s, they cycled back into the forefront of fashion around the 1990s as lingerie. Late 20th-century garter belts were common in sexy, vintage-inspired burlesque fashion—which reached the height of its popularity near the end of the 20th century. Two decades into the 21st century, sexy garter belts, and garter sets are still commonly worn in modern women’s lingerie looks.
