No matter the season, black leggings *never* go out of style. 

With *so* many options, it might seem impossible to find the perfect pair for you. From lounging at home to an outdoor hike, leggings are your BFF. We've ranked the *best* black leggings!

1. Best overall

lululemon Align Pant, $98

Lululemon Aligns reign supreme because of their buttery softnest, versatility and weightless fabric. Although lululemon is a bit pricey, their leggings last *forever* (and they're extremely comfortable!). If you need a good legging to wear everyday *and* you want them to last, you just found them.

2. Everyday

Aerie OFFLINE Real Me High-Waisted Legging, $45

Aerie's message of body positivity and self-love is enough to make us *love* their leggings. Aerie launched a new OFFLINE collection specifically made to play! These everyday leggings are at a decent price featuring medium support and lightweight, fast drying fabric. If you don't want to spend a lot of money but you need a *really* good legging, these are for you. 

3. Budget-friendly

Colorfulkoala High-Waisted Full-Length Leggings, $23

These leggings from Colorfulkoala are *basically* Lululemon dupes (for only $23!). Their *great* price, buttery soft feel and seamless design make them a fan fave. Guess what? They're also squat proof! These budget-friendly leggings will *always* have you covered. 

4. Workouts and running

Athleta Ultimate Stash Pocket 7/8 Tight, $89

If you *love* to work out or run, you might be willing to spend a little more cash for a supportive pair of leggings. The Athleta Ultimate will hold you in at the gym or in the studio for a seamless look. The stash pockets are also a *huge* win. 

5. Pockets

Beyond Yoga Spacedye Out of Pocket Legging, $99

Sometimes you need to invest in a great pair of pocketed leggings. We *love* the Spacedye collection from Beyond Yoga. The buttery soft fabric and roomy pockets make these the *best* leggings for carrying your phone everywhere you go. 

6. Yoga pants (aka flared leggings)

Heathyoga Bootcut Yoga Pants, $30

These bad boys are making a comeback. From the early 2000s to Emma Chamberlain, yoga pants are here to stay. The Heathyoga Bootcut Yoga Pants are budget-friendly, squat-proof *and* they have two sidepockets. What's not to love?
