There's nothing worse than paying for an exercise class only to find yourself completely distracted by workout pants that keep slipping or falling down. I'm convinced that high-waisted leggings were specifically invented to solve this problem, which is why every woman needs a pair (or five) in her closet. A bonus: There's nothing like a great pair of leggings to transform the whole mood of your workout. Narrow your search with these comfy-but-stylish high-waisted workout leggings that are cute enough to go straight from the gym to brunch—or, you know, just to brunch.
