Leggings are a forever staple we wouldn’t dream of tossing, but there are tons of new styles on the rise that stand to rival those plain skinny leggings we all know and love. Nothing against them—they are closet staples, after all—but suddenly, those basic pairs are starting to feel tired in comparison to all the new legging trends springing up to take their place. No matter if you wear them exclusively for workouts or exclusively for lounging (or a mix of both), this still applies to you.
Sometimes even the smallest of details can make all the difference, be it a shrunken hemline, a flared-out leg, an updated waistline, or a non-black neutral color. And each of the below five legging trends has one small tweak that makes it a bit more exciting to wear—or, at least, makes me more enthusiastic about wearing leggings than I typically am. The fashion set has been all over them, too, which tells me that we’re only going to see more of them. To see each new legging style in action and to shop the best 21 pairs on the market, just keep scrolling.
