I’m always a bit surprised when people compliment my leggings (and now bike shorts too since they’re such a thing). They’re always kind of an afterthought for me and are usually chosen at 6 a.m. in the dark while running late for a workout class, but I digress. I’m not really sure why I’m surprised about the compliments, as I scope out other people’s leggings too. Truth be told, I often wear somewhat boring black leggings, but whenever I wear a pair that’s a pretty color or has an interesting feature, people notice, and many even ask where I got them.
I think we can all agree that receiving compliments is lovely, and it validates that something you chose to buy/wear is really great, especially when it comes to something somewhat polarizing like leggings. I own quite a few pairs of leggings and bike shorts, but the 13 below get me the most compliments by far. Keep scrolling to shop those, along with seven other pairs that I don’t own but I’m 100% confident are compliment bait.
