Workout leggings vs. everyday leggings: what’s the difference?

At Lands’ End we know that life can get a little hectic. Between saving the day at work (what would they do without you?), keeping things running at home (what would they do without you?), and trying to stay active and healthy (what would they do without you?!) the least we can do is offer a wardrobe that can help you get it all done. That’s where our leggings come in. Offered in a variety of styles for a variety of purposes we do our best to bring you a comfortable, reliable and stylish legging to help you live your best life every day no matter the circumstance. Keep reading for our suggestions of which leggings suit your busy lifestyle best.

The Scenario:

Thanks to a moment of weakness during last week’s girl’s night you promised to join your best friend at her next early-morning bootcamp class. That day is today.

The Solution:

Don’t panic when the alarm buzzes before sun up. A high intensity early morning workout is exactly what you need to get your blood pumping and your confidence soaring for a successful day ahead. Wherever you are on your workout journey, our hybrid compression Women’s Active Hybrid leggings are built to keep up and stay in place. So whether you’re flipping tires, jumping rope or just crunching your way to a healthier you, these are the pants to get you there. The full elastic waist band with continuous drawcords holds you in while the four way stretch woven fabric in front and compression knit in back gives your body that hugging fit you need when you’re pushing it to the max. Plus that wicking fabric you love in a workout pant will ensure you’re cool and dry from start to finish.

The Scenario:

You’ve worked hard all week and are more than ready to just kick back and relax this weekend. Only problem is no one told your To-Do list you plan on taking it easy.

The Solution:

Breeze through your weekend chores in comfort and style with a little help from our Starfish Women’s Leggings. Made from a soft cotton jersey knit with stretch for ease, the fabric on these leggings is substantial which means it minimizes the lumps and bumps you hate seeing in most other leggings. Plus the wide elastic waistband lies flat and smooth on your middle. Basically these pants look smooth and stylish without really too much effort from you. Exactly what you want in your weekend wear. Add an extra-long tunic and some cute flats and we’re sure you’ll make it through your to-do list in no time – leaving plenty of weekend left for plain old fun.

The Scenario:

A long week at work has just about pushed you to your sanity limit. Fortunately for you there’s a yoga studio around the corner offering lunchtime classes.

The Solution:

Keep a pair of Women’s High Waisted Active Yoga Pants in your desk drawer and you’ll be prepared to partake in those lunchtime workout classes you always say you want to try. The antimicrobial, wicking fabric keeps you cool and dry during your sun salutations so you won’t have to worry about coming back to the office a sweaty, stinky mess. You’ll love how the high elastic waistband holds you in during your zen workout and, with any luck, they’ll offer you the extra support you need. Not just as a workout pant, though, but by just being there for you when you need a mental recharge.

The Scenario:

That mass email that went out to your team yesterday implied you should expect to work late tonight. So not only do you have to dress to impress – but you have to dress to survive the long, exhausting day (and night) ahead.

The Solution:

Come to work prepared to win – especially in comfort. Our Women’s Ponte Seamless Leggings are made from a soft-yet-substantial ponte knit that gives these leggings a refined look you’ll love. And the lack of seam along the outside leg means a smoother, more flattering look for you. But your legs won’t be the only part of you benefiting from a refined finish. You’ll also love how the full-elastic waistband lies smooth and flat on your mid-section, eliminating the unnecessary bulk you’re used to seeing from all of those other everyday leggings. Pair these flattering leggings with a long blouse and tailored blazer with black heels or flats and you’ll be more than ready to handle whatever challenges the day throws your way.

The Scenario:

You’ve been planning a romantic get away for what seems like an eternity and the day has finally come to set off on your adventure with the one you love most.

The Solution:

Be camera ready from the start of your trip to the finish with a little help from our cute and comfy Women’s Starfish Leggings in vibrant colored prints. Made from soft cotton jersey with stretch for ease, these are the perfect travel pants. And the fabric is substantial, minimizing lumps and bumps – an essential quality in a printed legging. With a wide elastic waistband at the middle you’ll have no choice but to sit back and enjoy the ride. And with so many colors and patterns to choose from we’re willing to bet you’ll look pretty cute while doing it.
