It’s no secret that athleisure is one of the hottest trends this season. From running both miles and errands, the sportswear to everyday wear trend is something we can definitely stand behind. Now that leggings are considered acceptable work attire (within reason, that is) and fashion sneakers are in, athleisure has proven that it is definitely here to stay.

If you’re going to support the sporty chic trend (which you totally should), go big or go home! When it comes to leggings, the more patterned the better. Patterns add a fun element to otherwise very basic pieces. Who wants to workout in boring gym clothes? Not us, thank you. If you’re not mixing and matching bold prints, you’re seriously missing out.

From bold prints, unique details, fun cutouts, and cool textures, the room for experimenting is endless. You can put together a cute outfit that is also functional and comfortable–what more could you want?

If you’re still skeptical of the growing patterned leggings trend, we think we can change your mind. Check out these leggings that are sure to turn heads on the street and in the gym.
