These Are the Best Legging Brands, Period

I always say that regardless of what you’re buying, it never hurts to get a second opinion—or eighth. Whether it’s a big investment, an update of an essential, or a little gift to yourself, the more info you have the better. And if those opinions happen to come from fashion editors who literally shop all day for a living, well, then you’re really in luck. That’s why, as we’ve done in the past with our favorite brands for coats, boots, and lingerie, today we’re sharing the labels we love for leggings. After all, there’s no time like the present to revamp your selection of activewear (or, of course, loungewear), am I right? To read about and shop the seven best brands according to our editors, simply continue on below.

“You might automatically think of sneakers when you hear Adidas, but it’s the legging selection that deserves a shout-out, too. The new line uses recycled plastic found on beaches in an effort to reduce ocean waste, and as weird as it sounds to wear leggings woven with plastic, let me tell you—it makes them ultra-breathable and perfect for intense workouts.” — Anna LaPlaca, associate editor 

“I’ve been wearing Alo leggings for years now. It does both basic and trendy styles so well. I just bought a pair of the Lounge Leggings, and they’re my new favorites.” — Allyson Payer, senior editor 

“My Lululemon leggings are the most comfortable pair I own. Sometimes I’m hesitant to try out new brands because it’s easier to stick to the classic brands where you know your size and exactly which styles to stock up on.” — Erin Fitzpatrick, senior news editor 

"I always look to JoyLab for affordable leggings that are still flattering and on-trend. Most of its pieces come with matching tops, so you know you can always find a cool workout outfit for (well) under $100." — Kat Collings, editor in chief 

"I love Outdoor Voices’ leggings (and sets) because they’re good-enough quality to wear for my mostly low-impact workouts while still feeling cool enough to want to wear to and from the gym or just around on weekends. Plus, they’re even comfortable to lounge in at home." — Nicole Eshaghpour, senior market editor 

“I like to keep my workout clothes pretty minimal and streamlined and always return to my black Nike leggings.” — Kristen Nichols, managing editor 

"Zella leggings are some of the oldest yet most reliable leggings in my workout drawer. They are so soft and durable and keep their fit wash after wash." — Lauren Eggertsen, senior fashion editor

Dyson Just Launched a $500 Hair Straightener, and This Is My Honest Review

It kind of surprised me.

Dyson Just Launched a $500 Hair Straightener, and This Is My Honest Review

If you’re not overly familiar with Dyson haircare, let me offer you a brief overview. Back in 2016, the brand, previously known for crafting high-end vacuum cleaners, hand dryers, and fans, launched into beauty with the Supersonic Hair Dryer. It promised intense power with minimal noise and, most importantly, minimal heat damage. Then, two years later in 2018, it released potentially one of the most innovative hair tools that the industry had ever seen, the Airwrap: a multi-use tool (again with minimal heat) that offers a full blow-dry experience at home by utilizing an air-flow Coanda effect for bouncy curls. In short, Dyson's track record means that when the brand talks, we listen. 

A small caveat, however, is that Dyson haircare products are exceptionally expensive. The Supersonic will set you back a cool $400, while the Airwrap varies in price from $500 to $550, depending on attachments. With that being said, I’m not ashamed to say I genuinely believe that when it comes to Dyson, you get what you pay for. Since switching to Dyson hair tools, not only is the condition of my hair so much better, but my styling game has improved tenfold. So when I discovered that Dyson was launching a new hair tool, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

The new Dyson Corrale is a hybrid cordless hair straightener that promises quicker styling with half the damage of a standard-plated straightener. And sure, when I heard about it, I was intrigued. However, initially, something didn’t quite sit right with me. My go-to straighteners cost a mighty $250 and have never let me down. I don’t feel like they damage my hair too much, and I don’t really have any gripes (although a cordless option would be amazing). So when I discovered that the Corrale is the first Dyson hair tool to ditch the air technology that I know and love in order to produce a heat-reliant hair straightener that costs an eye-watering $500, I questioned my need for such a thing.

But then I tried it, and I really started to understand what all of the fuss was about. Unlike normal straighteners (although it does curl too, by the way), the Corrale utilizes patented flexing, micro-hinged plate technology, which works to shape and gather every strand of hair to prevent them from splaying and pulling. In practical terms, this basically means that one glide is enough to create straight, sleek lengths with no snagging, no pulling, and no need to go over sections more than once, drastically minimizing heat damage. Essentially, the flexi-plates mean the level of heat required for maximum results is much lower than a conventional straightener. Plus, with three heat options, there really is no hair type that the Corrale doesn’t work for—from tight, coarse curls to thin, fine strands.

And it really does make a difference. When I first sat down in the stylist’s chair (this was pre–social distancing), my hair was not in a good way. It looked dry, frizzy, and like it needed a serious deep-conditioning treatment. When I first saw the Corrale, I was blown away by how chunky it is. In its charging dock, it looks like it could be some sort of weapon. However, once you actually pick it up and get it in your hands, it’s not quite as heavy and cumbersome as you’d expect. It’s heavier than your average pair of straighteners, sure, but it’s by no means uncomfortable to use. Then the stylist informed me that should you wish to use the Corrale as a wireless, battery-operated straightener, you simply detach the magnetic cord for 30 minutes of cord-free styling when fully charged. The weight suddenly makes sense. 

As the flexi-plates grabbed hold of each section and worked their magic, I genuinely could not fathom how seamless and easy each stroke was. Within a matter of minutes, every single strand on my head looked sleek, glossy, and poker-straight. I looked like a totally different woman compared to the flustered Stig of the Dump character that had turned up just five minutes earlier. I was impressed, to say the least.

But as I stared at my glass-like lengths, I just couldn’t seem to shake off the fact that in order to achieve such a finish, I’d had to spend $500. For someone who doesn’t use straighteners (or any hair tool for that matter) every day, the Corrale seems like a reckless investment. However, if you ever find yourself worried about the amount of heat damage you’re putting your hair through or are simply looking for a quicker, easier way to achieve sleek strands, the Corrale is absolutely worth your time and money.
