7 of the most stylish and comfortable leggings to make dressing during quarantine easier

7 of the most stylish and comfortable leggings to make dressing during quarantine easier

Don’t know what to wear during quarantine? Here are 7 of the most stylish and comfortable leggings that might just make dressing up easier


Let’s face it, we aren’t wearing strappy dresses and heels in quarantine.

The odd date night in the sitting room may occur, plus a Zoom call where you need to look presentable – but we aren’t dressing up.

We are craving comfort from the coldness the world is currently generating. Easy to wear and convenient clothing is the order of the day. We desire items that will take us from the home office to the indoor workout area, aka the living room.

Exercise leggings were once confined to the sweaty halls of gyms but somewhere along the way, they became vital everyday apparel. In the days of lockdown, they are even more important. For many of us, our daily walk is a highlight.

Why not make it more interesting with a pair of stylish yet cosy leggings?

Some leggings are now walking pieces of art. Take Sweaty Betty’s Feel It training leggings for instance. The tropical floral motif looks handpainted and provides a much welcome point of difference to a functional item.

Then there are Nike’s leopard print revelations. Perfect for those who like to add a little spice to their activewear.

The Upside provides achingly chic options for those who want to feel modern and elegant. While Lululemon and Ernest Leoty aim for comfort and simplicity, something we are all yearning for right now.

The key to comfort is to stick to high-waisted styles with super-soft and sweat-wicking fabric.

Most brands now cater to all shapes and sizes with Nike, Fabletics, and Girlfriend Collective leading the way.

Seven of the best

Align high-rise pant, €59 at Lululemon

Sunrise striped technical leggings, €124 at Matches Fashion

HIT Feel It 7/8 training leggings, €70 at Sweaty Betty

Ernest Leoty Therese panelled stretch leggings, €110 at Net A Porter 

Animal print leggings, €24.47 at Nike

Kessler high waisted scrappy leggings, approx €79 at Fabletics

Wildflower compressive high-rise leggings, approx €62 at Girlfriend Collective
