Leggings are a versatile addition to your wardrobe. They can be worn casually with tunics, dresses or skirts or dressed up for a yoga class, date night or day of self-care. But how do you choose the right pair for you? In this blog post, we interviewed a few experts to find out what features they look for when choosing a hard-working pair of women’s leggings.

A kind of skin-tight fabric garment, leggings sheathe the legs from waist to toe tips in a tight fit. They come in opaque, sheer and fishnet styles or a combination of the two. The fabric may be cotton, polyester, spandex, lycra or nylon, but the most common type of legging is a stretchy nylon or nylon/spandex blend that’s often made to look like leather or latex.

Full-length leggings—also called ankle length—are a great option for winter because they work well with tall boots and can give the appearance of longer legs in petite height women. They also pair nicely with long sweaters or T-shirts.

Shaper leggings are another style of legging that’s popular in Leonisa, which help smooth and sculpt curves, including belly areas. They also help to increase perspiration and may even help achieve fitness goals by helping with weight loss or boosting athletic performance.

Shiny leggings—also known as metallic or leather-look leggings—are a popular fashion trend that was first popularized by celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Kelly Clarkson and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. They’re typically a shiny silver or metallic (lame) color and made from nylon and spandex or some other stretchy fabric that’s sometimes embellished to add sparkle or sheen. women’s bamboo leggings
