6 Of The Best New Workout Leggings For Women

Because everyone knows new kit makes you run faster and train harder, right?

Baggy, ill-fitting leggings won’t make for the most comfortable gym session. Go for lightweight, comfortable and breathable workout leggings. Here’s our pick of the best on the market.

1. Best for making a statement in the gym

Nike Pro N+TC Tour LA training tights, £90

You’ve got to give it to Nike, they give good legging. Their latest limited-edition release are lightweight, flattering and inspired by LA – look closely and you’ll spot some palm trees.

Suitable for a number of workouts, from gym training to yoga and dance, they may not be cheap (not even slightly, in fact), but gosh they are pretty.

2. Best value for money

H&M Sports Tights, £19.99

Good old Hennes, always great for a bargain. Their workout wear is fantastic value for money, with tights starting at just £14.99, and most of their leggings are available in sizes XS-L, with a selection going up to 3XL. Tremendous.

3. Best for yogis

Sweaty Betty Halasana Yoga Leggings, £65

If you’re serious about yoga, it’s worth investing in a decent pair of yoga-specific leggings. These super-stretchy, butterfly-print beauties are 100% opaque – meaning no accidental knicker flashes in downward dog. They’re also reversible – the other side is plain black – so it’s like getting two new pairs of tights for the price of one.

4. Best for runners

adidas Supernova three-quarter tights, £40

With mesh cuffs and a shiny twisted effect at the waist, these midnight blue tights have just enough design detail to stand out, without being full-on-in-your-face patterned. The inner key pocket, drawstring waist (to stop them falling down) and reflective details mean they’re perfect for running, day or night. Plus, special climacool® fabric helps keep you cool and dry when the weather’s warm.

5. Best of British

Lexie Sport Iris Leggings, £65

Designed and made in Britain, each pair of these leggings from boutique sportswear brand Lexie have a unique pattern placement, meaning no two pairs are ever the same.

Offering UV protection and printed mesh side panels for ventilation, they’re great for working-out outdoors. They’ll also look just as good with a loose vest and heels in the evening as they will down the gym.

 6. Best for high-impact exercise

Reebok One Series Legging, £38

With a secure waistband to prevent twisting and slipping, anti-odour panels and a four-way stretch design, these leggings are perfect for all the kicking, burpeeing and sweating of a high-intensity workout.

Oh, and Millie Macintosh’s a fan, if you’re bothered about that kind of thing.
