If there is one common factor in almost every girl’s closet, it’s a pair of leggings. Not only are they comfortable, but they can also be easily worn anywhere and at any time. Most women prefer to use them in the gym, while others prefer to wear them on a girl’s night out. Whatever your preference may be, they are still a better choice compared to actual pants.

5 Types of Leggings Every Woman Needs in Their Closet

With all the available options, it can be a little challenging to know what type of leggings you should have in your closet. We’re sharing 5 go-to leggings that you need to add into your wardrobe in order to create versatile (and comfortable) outfits!

Black Leggings

It’s common knowledge that black pairs well with any other color. This makes black leggings a necessity in every woman’s wardrobe, as you can pair it both casual and official tops and still look incredible.

To achieve an official look with black leggings, try pairing them with a blazer and a pair of boots or heels. If you are going for a more casual look, wear a pair of comfortable leggings made from cotton with a t-shirt and sneakers. Whatever you choose to pair black leggings with, you certainly can’t go wrong.

Colored Leggings

While black leggings are a staple to have in your closet, a splash of color helps add some vibrancy and gives a sense of cheer to an otherwise dull outfit!

However, it can sometimes be intimidating to embrace colored leggings because of the challenges that come with combining colors. Here are some tips you can try when wanting to rock that bold pair of colored pants:

● If your leggings have one solid color, try pairing them with a complementary top that can pick up the leggings color.● If you have colorful leggings with multiple colors (like tie-dye), pair them with one of the colors on the leggings. If that seems like too much color, opt for a simple black or white top.

Print Leggings

Like color leggings, most women tend to shy away from owning a pair of animal or flower print leggings. The reason for this is because styling any print, especially animal prints, can be a little overwhelming and quite tricky. Most women assume that prints require neutral-colored tops, which is not the case.

Combining other patterns with print leggings makes your entire look fun and extremely creative. Here are a few tips you can use to style print leggings correctly;

● Treat print leggings like neutral colors and combine them with other prints. Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints!● Pair print leggings with a pair of heels to add some sassiness to the look.

Non-see through Leggings

It might sound obvious, but it’s a little surprising as to how see-through leggings can actually be! When picking out your pair, be sure to test them (or read reviews) to ensure that the pair you’re looking at is thick enough to fully cover you. Like other leggings, non-see through leggings can also work well with casual or official wear.

Mesh Leggings

For several years now, mesh leggings have been a trending option for most women. The reason for its popularity is its effectiveness in workouts. The mesh on these leggings adds breathability, making it easier for your skin to breathe, especially after a long workout.

The mesh also adds a sense of style, and this gives the leggings an edge. Unlike the rest of the leggings above, these leggings are best when used for workout purposes as they increase airflow. This, in turn, causes you to sweat less.


With all the above leggings in your closet, you can tone down or spice up your day-to-day look without worrying about running out of options.
