No wardrobe is complete without basics, and the basic that proves you can be both stylish and comfortable is the legging. Like a white t-shirt, you can never have too many pairs and they fit so many different occasions. There are leggings for lounging, working out or dressing up. So to help you stock up on this wardrobe staple, we’ve compiled a list of highly rated leggings that range in fabrics, fits, and colors. The one thing they all have in common? They’re under $50! From sweat-wicking materials to tummy smoothing waistbands, the top 10 leggings on this list are functional, fashionable, and cheap enough that when they wear out you can toss them in favor of a new pair. With the holidays approaching, we can’t think of a better time to snag a pair of pants perfect for lounging and stretchy enough not to limit your food intake. Eat that second (or third) Santa cookie…you’re wearing your new compression leggings! Opening image: target.com
