The hunt for the perfect pair of leggings seems never-ending. If you’re anything like us, you have a whole drawerful of them, from $5 to $150. Of course, they’re also all different sizes, lengths, and fabrications. But the one thing they have in common? We all thought every last pair was the best at one time or another. Afterall, it’s always felt like trial-and-error was the only way to find the pair of your dreams. Until now. Flare leggings, workout, dress-up, or a combination, we’ve found the best of the best.

We’ve made sure they all are size-inclusive, versatile, and tested by our editors. We’re big fans of leggings around here, and whether you’re wearing them to work, to workout, or to run errands, we’ve covered them all. Their versatility is one of the reasons we love leggings so much, right? Sure, flare leggings are trending. But we also included the always-in-style classic silhouettes. Read on to find our favorite leggings (that we’re pretty sure will become your favorites, too!).
