A whole lot of us are unapologetically living our best lives in leggings and loving every minute of it. The only thing that can make wearing leggings instead of, say, tight, chafing jeans or constricting dresses, about a million times better is wearing the best leggings with a smartphone pocket.
Which brings us to our unapologetic love of pockets.
It's a well-known fact that trying on a dress or skirt and then discovering the happiest secret — that its designer was amazing enough to add pockets — is pretty much the best thing that can ever happen in any dressing room, ever. Now, add those pockets to leggings that you wear to yoga class, while running, or while kicking back on the couch at a friend's house, and it's no shock that pockets on leggings is a very good (some might say genius) idea.
Why on Earth should you have to drag around a purse or gym bag when leggings with a pocket big enough for your smartphone exist? Or maybe you're the type of person who prefers to keep your phone far away from gym floors, but you still struggle to find a safe place for your locker key and the debit card you need to buy that after-workout smoothie. These 10 leggings with pockets provide the perfect solution: they're among the best workout leggings on Amazon and their thoughtful designers loved us enough to include pockets that are big enough to actually be functional.
Can you think of a legit reason you don't need these leggings in your life?
