Cool fall breezes have picked up and it’s finally time to pack away all of your summer workout gear. From barely-there tank tops to tight booty shorts, we must wave goodbye to warm weather and the skin-showing fitness fashion that goes along with it. Although we may miss some of our seasonal favorites, that doesn’t mean we can’t dive head first into autumn with one of our absolute favorite activewear options — leggings.

Whether it’s leggings with fun patterns and varying waistlines to those with foot straps and everything in between, we just can’t seem to find a pair we don’t want to try on. We know fitness budgets can be quite constraining, so we did a few downward dogs, hiked a couple of trails, and jumped on some bicycles to find out which leggings from each price bracket are worth the purchase. Scroll down to see which pair should end up in your closet this season.

$22.40

These leggings are the perfect weight for a run through the park on a brisk fall day. At such an amazing price, you might as well pick  up a pair for every day of the week. That’s right, no more excuses for skipping workouts because you have “no clean leggings”.

Bonus: The dark pattern looks perfectly paired with a solid pullover for an athleisure look to take you to the gym and beyond.

Fun patterned tights are the perfect way to show off your style after a summer full of working out in boring short shorts. These leggings are made from a recycled, eco-friendly fabric and they’ll make you feel sleek with every step you take.

Gaby Legging available to Mika Yogawear

$60

We recently discovered Mika Yogawear and became obsessed with their affordable prices and durable clothing. These leggings are one of our favorites this fall. With cozy, extra-lengthy pant legs and an adorable folded waistband, these leggings create a gorgeously long and lean silhouette both on and off the yoga mat.

Rainbow Legging available at Nux

$72

One of our favorite patterned leggings on the market to date, this pair by Nux offers serious style points, plus bonuses like no chaffing, smooth sleek fit, and a fantastic mid-rise waist. Throw these bad boys on for a spin class and you won’t regret it.

$89.99 

These leggings are the perfect for cool autumn days filled with yoga and errands. Although they’re lightweight and breathable, they’ll still keep you warm wherever your day takes you.


fall yoga 7Prosperity Legging available at Electric Yoga

$119

These leggings are totally out of this world. Though they are a bit on the pricier side, as soon as you put them on you’ll realize why they’re totally worth it. The polyester and spandex combo allows for a sleek look while still moving from tree to toe stand during yoga with ease. Also, we think the totally psychedelic pattern adds a fun flare to any fitness class experience.
