American Apparel Women's Nylon Tricot High Waist Legging

Chosen by commerical content writer Jade MoscropI discovered these leggings when I was about 17 and I haven't looked back since. I've tried others, but nothing quite compares. Yes, they're more disco pant than legging (remember when they were having a moment?) but they never slip down, are silky smooth, really flattering and I basically live in them.

Pink Snake Panel High Waist Gym Leggings

Chosen by commercial content writer Lily AndersonPLT has delivered ud83dudc4f. These high-waisted leggings are an absolute dream and I cannot wait to wear them to the gym. Not only are they squat-proof, but their snake print side panel design is a knock out.

Align High-Rise Pant

Chosen by shopping editor Aimee JakesMy go-to high-waisted leggings are definitely Lululemon Aligns which are made from a stunning blend of buttery, trademarked fabric and love. Not only do they feel so lightweight you could be naked (no, seriously) they are ultra-flattering, versatile and the waistband never budges. They're expensive, but think of it as an investment as you will wear them every single day.

Chosen by head of content Amy CooperNike leggings are my go-to and I get a lot of wear out of them (I think I've had one pair for going on three years, so you could say we're in a pretty significant long-term relationship). They're perfect for exercising or lounging on the couch with soft, breathable fabric that's thick enough to avoid showing off your bum (no-one wants a thinning gym legging, am I right?) and at the price point, just affordable enough to have quite a few pairs on rotation.

Chosen by commercial content writer Lily AndersonA variation on the practical black legging, these gorgeous crocodile leather look pair are EVERYTHING ud83dude0d. Defo an 'out-out' outfit, especially when teamed with a nice top.
