The 17 Best and Warmest Leggings for Winter 2017

Leggings with a lining are perfect for the cold weather and they help your body temperature at the same time. But as we recommend with any kind of leggings you should keep one thing in mind: no matter how much we love them, they’re not pants. So wear them with cute, oversized tops or sweaters this winter, they will go perfectly with your boots or any winter gear. Let’s take a look at our top picks:

Winter calls for something more than regular fabrics. Leather, for example. And the good thing about leather is that it will make us look powerful by the minute. But if your friends with nature, you can also use them, because the leather-looking comes from a base of 100% polyurethane in the front and 100% polyester in the back. These two materials are mixed with a few panels that contrast polyester, rayon, nylon and spandex. Looking at these closely someone might think they’re not exactly comfortable, but an elastic closure is a good guarantee for that. And the model is the opposite of boring black leggings: stitching in the knees and tights, front zipper pockets, all very put together for a very badass look. Way to kick off the bad weather huh?

BCBG is doing a great job by keeping us away from boring clothes. And they do it with contrasting, very formal-looking leggings that we can actually wear to a bunch of different occasions, work included. They’re made out of 76% rayon, 21% nylon and 3% percent spandex, so they basically look a little bit more like pants and a little less like leggings.

These two-tone leggings have a very nice fit, not as tight as we could expect, and a mid-rise waist, that comes actually in a good time, when we’d like everything to be embracing our waists and not the opposite. But they do keep one good thing about leggings: you don’t have to deal with zippers or buttons, just enjoy the magic of pull on. But remember, you have to help leggings a little to make them look fancy and elegant.

Try things around the hip area and balance your figure with loose clothes on the top.
