Lululemon Align V-Waist Pant 25″

Two words: buttery soft. That’s the only way to describe how these Lululemon leggings feel. The Align range is one of the brands most popular collections and it’s because—you guessed it—they’re just so damn comfortable. Plus, they’re moisture-wicking and squat-proof so you don’t have to worry about sweat spots or sheerness when hitting the gym.

Athleta Ultra High-Rise Elation Tight

Image number 4 showing, Ultra High Rise Elation Tight

Another top contender, specifically amongst the yogi crowd, are the Athleta Elation tights. Again, these are super soft and comfortable enough for all-day wearing, but they were made with indoor and outdoor yoga workouts in mind. So, the next time you hit up a vinyasa class, bring these along for the stretches and woooooosahs.

Everlane The Perform Legging

On the hunt for elevated basics? You can count on Everlane to never let you down. While the retailer is known for its crisp shirts and work-appropriate trousers, its athleisure section deserves just as much attention and praise. These leggings have an extra high-waist and internal pocket to keep your keys or phone. Plus, they’re made of 58% recycled nylon if you wanted a greener pick.

The Gym People High Waist Yoga Pants with Pockets

More pockets, please. These compression leggings are another favorite among our audience and religious Amazon shoppers. They’re thick enough to get some squats in and stretchy enough to support you through a reformer pilates class. Or, you can wear them literally anywhere else.

Colorfulkoala High Waisted 7/8 Length Leggings

Here we have another TikTok and Betches favorite. These leggings come in over 20 different colors, if black leggings aren’t your vibe. But, that’s not all. They’re considered a perfect dupe for the Lululemon Align leggings listed above if you’re not willing to flesh out over $100 on your next pair of leggings.

These $23 Amazon Leggings Are Just As Amazing Your Lululemon Faves

Betches may receive a portion of revenue if you click a link and purchase a product or service. The links are independently placed and do not influence editorial content.

While I typically support shopping for the real deal, I (along with nearly 47,000 Amazon shoppers) approve of buying these $23 leggings inspired by Lululemon’s Align collectionInstead of dropping over $100 on another pair of Lulu’s, consider adding Colorfukoala’s Buttery Soft High-Waisted Leggings to your shopping cart. These leggings are a lot more than just a budget-friendly find on Amazon—think moisture-wicking, squat-proof leggings that’ll work for everything from burning calories in your next reformer pilates class to your Saturday morning Target haul, or of course, your daily hot girl walk.  

We know what you’re thinking—there’s got to be a catch, right? You’d probably expect leggings with a price tag as low as this to fade after a few wash and dry cycles, or display some much-dreaded pilling at the seams, but that’s not the case at all. I put the black pair in my normal rotation and ater owning them for six months, they look just as good as they did on day one. 

Another plus? Their wide, high waistband won’t slip or roll down even during an intense workout, thanks to the 80% nylon and 20% spandex they’re made with. And, like I said before, they’re squat-friendly and moisture-wicking, so sheer fabric and lingering sweat aren’t major concerns. 

As someone who owns more than 30 pairs of leggings (yep, you read that right) these have earned the top spot as my favorite.  I can also guarantee that outside of a fancy night out, there isn’t a time where you won’t spot me wearing these comfortable leggings. And, I’m not alone. The #ColorfulKoala hashtag on TikTok has also gained over 19 million views thanks to creator reviews and try-on hauls. 

If black leggings aren’t your thing, don’t worry. You can snag these in a bunch of different colors, including seafoam green, coral pink, and lilac blue. They also have more neutral tones like beige and charcoal gray. Colorfulkoala’s Buttery Soft High-Waisted Leggings are also available in sizes XS to XL and they come in three different lengths including capri, 7/8, and full-length. Some customers recommend sizing up if you don’t like a snug fit, but I own these in my usual size medium and find them to have just the right amount of compression and stretch.

If I haven’t convinced you to buy these already, maybe the fact that you can get them in two days will make you *add to cart*—shoutout to Amazon Prime shipping, amirite? Come on, can you ever really have too many pairs of leggings in your closet?

The Comfiest Clothes For Your WFH Situation

It seems like every state is operating with its own set of rules and Covid guidelines, all of which seem to be changing on a weekly basis, and honestly, I can’t keep up. So I’m trying to bring you a roundup of sh*t you can wear while you work from home, but realistically, I have no clue wtf your current WFH situation even looks like. Some people are still completely WFH, others are in the office half the week and home the other half, but seem to have a more casual dress code than “normal”, and there’s an unlucky group of you who are back in the office full-time as if we’re not still in a pandemic. So with all that being said, here are some comfy WFH options catered to whatever current work situation you’re in. 

If You’re Working Completely From Home…

Z Supply Zoe Sweatshirt, $60

Even if you’re still working from home, you most likely can’t just sit around looking like a total slob 24/7. Whether it’s because you have to be ready to go for a Zoom call or just need to feel some sense of normalcy, it’s great to elevate your WFH loungewear in whatever way you can. This Z Supply sweatshirt is the perfect combination of comfy and polished with its slight puff-sleeve detail.

Missguided Slinky Cap Sleeve Top, $30 $12

Nothing says “I have my sh*t together” like a turtleneck…but let’s not get crazy here, a mock neck will do. This top from Missguided keeps you professional and comfy. Also notable, this top is actually part of Missguided’s current However You Nude campaign which aims to redefine “nude”. This campaign is through a partnership with Models of Diversity, a charity that advocates for greater diversity in fashion, beauty, and media. So basically, buying this is a win-win.

M Lounge Wide Leg Pants, $57

We’re obviously all accustomed to our sweatpants after these past six months and, don’t worry, I’m not here about to ask you to give them up. Instead, I’ll recommend you get yourself a pair of sweats with a slightly more tailored look so that you don’t have to worry about your coworkers catching you in those tie-dye sweats you DYI-ed from a TikTok video back in April.

Softwear Women’s T-Shirt, $42

softwear

Most of us want to just live in a T-shirt when we’re home, but when it comes to the WFH lifestyle, you always have to be on high alert for a Zoom meeting ambush. And, when you do, the last thing you need is to be caught by your coworkers in your gross old tee from that one 5k you did in high school.

Zara Long Knit Sweater, $49.90

Get on board with the latest influencer trend, polos, while still staying comfy and professional with this knit sweater from Zara. It’s chic, cozy, and has a collar, so you’re ready for anything your WFH day may throw at you.

Lululemon Fast And Free High Rise Tight II 25″ Ice Dye, $138

lululemon

If you’re sick of tie-dye, then it’s time to invest in ice dye, a new dyeing technique that gives a marbled look—or, my personal interpretation, almost a distressed denim appearance. These leggings are the type that you can easily sit in all day and yet are still high-performance so you don’t have to change out of your work leggings into your Zoom workout leggings.

Dippin’ Daisy’s Sunrise Top, $46

dippin daisy

All your coworkers will see from behind their computer screens on your Zoom call is a button-down. Little do they know, this button-down is actually pajamas. What more could you ask for? They also have matching shorts, so you can be business on top, party on the bottom.

If You’re Working Half At Home And Half In The Office…

Yummie Denim Shaping Legging, $78 $49

It seems like for most people who are at the office part-time, the dress code is a lot more casual than their regular work environment. With that in mind, you can ensure you look put-together and also office-appropriate with these Yummie leggings that still look like jeans.

White Fox Stay In Touch Shirt, $49.99

A button-down always looks nice. However, no need to get all fancy and uncomfortable with it, I mean like, we are still in a pandemic. This button-down from White Fox is actually from their loungewear collection, so you know it’s going to be comfortable af.

JLUXLABEL Boxy Top, $22.79

As I mentioned before, turtlenecks make you look automatically polished. But again, no need to torture yourself with a fitted or chunky one that you’ll be sweating in by 10AM. Instead, opt for this lightweight woven top with its comfortable, boxy fit.

Free People Babydoll Dress, $128

As a proud owner of this dress, I can vouch for how comfy it is and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s super comfortable while also super cute, and still appropriate enough to wear to a casually-dressed office. Plus, as we move into the colder weather, you can pair it with tights and even layer with a vest to help you deal with the famously unpredictable office building temperatures.

Urban Outfitters Button-Front Jumpsuit, $124

I’m a huge fan of a jumpsuit because it’s an all-in-one easy outfit option that always looks good. This jumpsuit is nice enough to get away within a corona-casual office with its button details and simple collar. Also, its overall loose fit can guarantee it will be comfy all day.

If You’re Back In The Office Full-Time…

Marled Ludlow Shirt Jacket & Pants, $78

For those of you back in the office full-time already, you have it bad enough as it is, so I didn’t want to exclude you from the outfit roundup too. I’m going to help you out here and give you some office business-casual pieces that are actually still comfortable, such as this outfit from Marled. I own this set, and I love how it looks classy and polished but is still comfortable. Not to mention, Marled has paired up with Powwater, an organization implementing sustainable clean water projects around the world. They are giving a portion of the proceeds from this collection to the cause.

BB Dakota Girl Next Door Top, $79

This is the perfect fall sweater that you actually need if you’re back in the office. It’s comfortable with its lightweight material and will pair seamlessly with tons of things that are already in your closet. Plus, it’s cute enough to wear out on the weekends too.

Lysse Stretch Trouser, $118

First off, the fact that this pair of trousers has the word “stretch” in the name means you know they’re going to be comfortable. But, beyond that, they’re super stylish and have a clean tailored look to make them office-appropriate.

Princess Polly Cheyenne Shirt, $65

A collared shirt is an easy office-appropriate closet staple. This one separates itself from others with its silky woven fabric so it will be soft all day on your skin.

Nasty Gal Oversized Blazer, $90

A way to look sophisticated in the office while still feeling comfortable is an oversized blazer. Since it’s oversized, it won’t feel as restrictive as a fitted tailored blazer would. It’s also great for layering.

Whatever your current work situation is, there’s at least one piece here to help keep you comfortable all day long that fits your current work dress code. And, as a reminder, the guidelines for your state are probably currently changing as we speak, so don’t get comfortable with your work situation, just get comfortable with your workwear.

7 Leggings You Can Wear As Pants All Season Long

Whoever said leggings aren’t pants clearly wasn’t doing it right. Yes, your $9.99 leggings from CVS paired with a crop top definitely do not qualify as pants. No one wants to see your thong through your leggings, nor do they want to see your labia glaring at them while they’re exchanging pleasantries with you. But if you wear a high quality pair of leggings and actually style them correctly, then they sure as hell do work as pants. And, being able to wear leggings all season long while working on your winter bod is pretty much the only perk of the colder months, so let’s embrace leggings as pants.

There’s no outfit I love more than a big oversize chunky sweater paired with leggings. It’s stylish, cute, and comfy af. Wearing leggings as pants is pretty much the epitome of having it all. Here are seven leggings styles you should add to your wardrobe ASAP.

1. Faux Leather

Point blank, every girl needs a pair of faux leather leggings. They make every outfit look that much cooler and give it an edgy, sexy feel. This pair by Spanx have quickly become my new go-to outfit staple. They’re comfy, hold everything in, and look v chic. You can even get away with wearing these leggings as pants, paired with boots and a cute top, and be your comfiest self while pounding shots at the bar. Win-f*cking-win.

2. Printed

Get yourself a good pair of printed leggings and they could easily pass for pants. Take this pair, for example, which have all the makings of a pair of pants, but aren’t pants. So like, they’re a hell of a lot comfier. Might be pushing it here, but wear these with a nice blouse and you can even get away with them for your 9-5 grind. Just maybe avoid HR’s floor for the day to be safe. 


Sanctuary Autumn Plaid Leggings

3. Faux Suede

Faux suede leggings are another staple legging you’ll want in your wardrobe arsenal this season. The suede material offers more warmth than other legging options and gives them a classic, elevated look. Fair warning, they may not be your best option for the bar, considering they’ll immediately show all the beer your drunk bestie keeps accidentally dumping on you. But, with a sweater and ankle boots for Thanksgiving? Ideal outfit.

4. Pants Adjacent

Leggings have come a long way since jeggings. So much so, that there are tons of options that are pretty much the equivalent of pants. In recent years, leggings have gotten a Bella Hadid-level face transplant, and so there’s really no longer a need to wear anything but leggings as pants. With a pair this good, you can be comfy all the time. And a comfy b*tch is a happy b*tch. So put away the Xanax and get yourself some pants-adjacent leggings instead.

5. Athletic

We’re still doing the whole athleisure thing, and hey, I’m here for it. A great pair of athletic style leggings are all you need for running those dreadful errands, like picking up Plan B or running out to buy more toilet paper (even though it’s def your roommates f*cking turn to buy some). She’ll be getting a petty Venmo request from me later.


Adidas 3-Stripes Tights

6. Trendy

As with every wardrobe staple, you have to get one version that’s “trendy.” Why not go super extra like the attention-seeking, high-maintenance betch you truly are and get yourself a neon pink pair? They shouldn’t be the only pair you have, or you’ll look some Richard Simmons imposter. Which, given the fact that I think he’s still “missing,” would be a very confusing mishap.

7. Details

Another way to elevate your leggings game this season is to get a pair with fashionable details. These moto ones, for example, would look Insta-worthy with a graphic tee and an oversized denim jacket #DoItForTheGram.


ALO High Waist Moto Legging 

There’s a time and a place for jeans…but there’s a lot more time and a lot more places for leggings. Between keeping up with all the Real Housewives and yelling at the Starbucks barista for the third time this week that your name is “Shannon” and not f*cking “Janet” (personal problem) there’s no need to make your life any harder than it already is. Add edge to your outfit, instead of your life, and get yourself some must-have pairs of stylish leggings. Your mental health (and your therapist) will thank you.
