5 Performance Leggings Tried and Tested by Our Fashion Editor

Some things are easier to shop for online than others, which brings us to our next point: we’ve started test-driving clothes for you! Starting with the performance legging — a piece of clothing that would normally need a change room and the touch of a hand to facilitate purchasing — our fashion editor Nina is going to guide you through the fine details of each pair, so that you can feel comfy hitting purchase AND comfy hitting the (home) gym.

5 **Performance Leggings** Tried and Tested by Our Fashion Editor

Affordable Leggings by H&M

Is it too early to say that these might be my favourite pair of leggings?! The material is definitely different than the others that I tried — they're more of a heavy/stretchy cotton, which feels great and is a fast-drying functional fabric. The fit is a super flattering high-waist, seamless situation, which makes me feel comfy as well as motivated during my yoga sesh. Also, I love the butt sculpting detail. Go for these leggings if you wanna flash that booty and spend more funds on the workout/classes than the actual outfit.

Sporty Neon Leggings by Nike

These leggings might be a bit loud for some, but man do I feel safe and seen on my night runs. My favourite part about these leggings is how they felt when putting them on — never have I felt something softer on my skin, like warm butter baby! They're high-waisted, made from Nike's breathable, fast-drying Dri-Fit, and they have a zip pocket in back for your keys. If you love a night run, go for these.

High End Leggings by P.E. Nation

The moment I put these leggings on, my housemate (who's a trainer/DJ) immediately commented on how cool they were. The nice design is definitely a drawcard for this pair, with sleek logo placemement, a slightly cropped length and high-waist fit, but they don’t stop there. The quality is excellent, AND they’re made from 78% premium recycled Italian polyamide. Go for these leggings if you want to look and feel like money.

Feel Good Leggings by Girlfriend Collective

These leggings hit all the right spots. My fave thing about these babies is that they’re made from 79% recycled polyester (from water bottles!) and have a mid-weight compression fit. I also adore the high-waist and the variation this brand offers — you choose not just your size and colour, but you can also choose various lengths. The colour options are ever expanding, and make getting dressed for exercise feel fun. For a feel-good purchase, go for these.

Versatile Leggings by Arket

These are the perfect pair of black leggings. Not only are they made from 71% recycled materials, but they're also super sleek looking. Honestly, I would incorporate them into my wardrobe as (gasp!) pants. Another added bonus is the zip pouch in back, making them the ultimate utilitarian pair of leggings. If you’re looking for a pair of less-fuss, less-waste, does-the-job-perfect leggings, go for these.
