Leggings with mesh inserts are hot right now: they add fashionable flair to your activewear, transition seamlessly from sweat to street, and give a full-coverage pant some breathability (you’ll be thankful for them in hot vinyasa class). It’s no wonder, then, that Khloe Kardashian, Lily Collins, and Hailey Baldwin have all been spotted wearing them out and about—not to mention countless non-famous women at your gym.
Be the coolest girl in the room (both literally and figuratively) with our top picks.
