With the rise in popularity of yoga, Pilates, and similar exercise trends of the last decade, leggings have taken their place as a nearly universal staple of women’s apparel. Appropriate for almost any occasion, they have a place in all seasons and can be worn with practically every look or style. Let’s take a quick peek at the top three reasons why leggings have become the women’s fashion hit that is here to stay.

High Waisted Leggings for Women

Soft Fabric

These come in a variety of hues and quantities, ranging from a single pair to seven pairs in different shades.Syrinx

Whether at the gym, around the house, or on the town, the hallmark of any pair of leggings is a soft, stretchy fabric. This usually means blends of between 8 and 12 percent Spandex with either a nylon or polyester weave. The stretch fit makes leggings perfect for activities as calm as meditation or as active as jogging—and anything in between.
