I always say that regardless of what you’re buying, it never hurts to get a second opinion—or eighth. Whether it’s a big investment, an update of an essential, or a little gift to yourself, the more info you have the better. And, if those opinions happen to come from fashion editors who literally shop all day for a living, well, then you’re really in luck. That’s why, as we’ve done in the past with our favorite brands for coats, boots, and lingerie, today we’re sharing the labels we love for leggings. After all, there’s no time like on the heels of a new year to revamp your selection of activewear (or, of course, loungewear), am I right? To read about and shop the eight best brands according to our editors, simply continue on below.

Adidas: “You might automatically think of sneakers when you hear Adidas, but it’s the legging selection that deserves a shoutout, too. The new line uses recycled plastic found on beaches in an effort to reduce ocean waste, and as weird as it sounds to wear leggings woven with plastic, let me tell you—it makes them ultra-breathable and perfect for intense workouts.”

Alo Yoga: “I’ve been wearing Alo leggings for years now. It does both basic and trendy styles so well. I just bought a pair of the Lounge Leggings, and they’re my new favorites.”

Lululemon: “My Lululemon leggings are the most comfortable pair I own. Sometimes I’m hesitant to try out new brands because it’s easier to stick to the classic brands where you know your size and exactly which styles to stock up on.”

Joylab: "I always look to Joylab for affordable leggings that are still flattering and on-trend. Most of their pieces come with matching tops, so you know you can always find a cool workout outfit for (well) under $100."

Outdoor Voices: I love Outdoor Voices’ leggings (and sets) because they’re good-enough quality to wear for my mostly low-impact workouts while still feeling cool enough to want to wear to and from the gym or just around on weekends. Plus, they’re even comfortable to lounge in at home.

Nike: “I like to keep my workout clothes pretty minimal and streamlined and always return to my black Nike leggings.”

Free People: “Free People’s leggings from its FP Movement category are stellar. They fit extremely well, don’t move while you’re working out, and always have some little detail that makes them feel really special.”

Koral: “I can always count on Koral for leggings that fit incredibly and don’t stretch out. Right now I’m into the below two-tone style and the metallic bike shorts.”

Clearly, Who What Wear editors love skinny jeans as much as the next person. We've broken down the best It girl–approved ways to wear them, the best brands to buy skinny jeans from, and how to wear them like celebrities. As ubiquitous as they are, however, they are far from the only denim option you need. As Nicole Kidman just proved, a sleek pair of wide-leg jeans are an absolute wardrobe essential—and might even convince you to hold off on your beloved skinny jeans that can feel restrictive on...

Kate Middleton's look for her latest public appearance was decidedly more, well, nautical than what we're used to seeing her wear. But as we recently reported, she has a new stylist (and former British Vogue editor) that's helping to craft her looks as of late, and she's keeping us on our toes. The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
