Spring is here! Depending on where you are in the world, it could either still be pretty chilly, or temperatures are finally starting to warm up. For us here in Scottsdale AZ, it’s definitely on the warmer side of the spectrum (a little above 90 degrees Fahrenheit), but we realize that our region of the country is a bit of a special one. With the temperatures being somewhat in-between, it could be hard to find the right apparel for lounging, working out, or to just wear under your clothes. If you’re in this position, we suggest a pair of leggings. Here are some reasons why.
1. They’re INCREDIBLY Comfortable
This is honestly the most important reason, if you ask me. I would wear them everywhere, if I could. They make lounging at home such a blissful experience, and if you decide to wear them out, you’ll be so surprised about how happy you feel because of just how cozy they are.
2. Great for Working Out
Though they cover the whole leg, most leggings are still breathable enough to wear as part of your workout outfit. They’re very form-fitting for your legs, but they do move with your body, so you’ll barely even notice that they’re there. Could wear them under gym shorts for an extra layer (if it's a little cooler, outside) or on their own.
3. They Can Double as Thermals
Since it’s not blazing hot everywhere, like it is here in Scottsdale, leggings could still be very useful for those who are still in the cold season. When I was living in Flagstaff AZ, which gets a decent amount of snow per year, I was always surprised just how cold your legs can get, even with a pair of jeans over them. Having a pair of leggings would have definitely helped me in situations like that, since they cling to your leg so well, keep your legs insulated, and are so comfortable, you won’t even feel them under your pants!
4. They Can Complete a Casual Outfit
They’d look pretty sleek with a long t-shirt, a pair of your favorite sneakers, and a hoodie. They can act as a sportier skinny jean, keeping you cozy and free as you go about your day. It’s a bit unconventional to have as part of an everyday outfit, when it comes to men’s fashion, but try playing around with it! You may just find out that you want to wear leggings every day.

I am a 36 year old straight man. I share leggings with my wife and we both love it! She is very supportive of it. It’s fun going legging shopping together and trying out new brands and styles. We tend to keep them to more private places like our home, a walk around the neighborhood, etc. and try to dress more professional for work and church, etc. I’ve worn them out in public numerous times like the grocery store, zoo, and on vacations and most people don’t seem to even notice or care. I’ve only had a couple of people say some harmless comments.
Like others have mentioned, we try to wear longer shirts to cover everything. I like to wear them with a sporty T-shirt or sweater and sometimes cover it up with a sporty jacket or an unbuttoned dress shirt. I also wear a pair of tennis shoes with ankle socks. I like to wear black leggings in public but I have worn many colors out including blue, gray, green, etc.
Women look great in leggings but I think with the right style men can pull off the look as well! Have fun, be comfortable, and be confident!
i would like to see more soft leggings in your catologue especially the sheer tight leggings in different colors,
I started wearing leggings about a year ago. Now I wear them almost everyday as regular wear. At first I was afraid to wear them in public but after awhile I noticed nobody cares and I notice the ladies like to look at my butt as I pass by.
Guys! Leggings are for everyone. Wear them, you will be glad.
I have started wearing tight leggings at the gym, it’s very exciting and I get a lot of stares from the guys, it really makes me work out harder to improve my hot bod
I have been publicly wearing leggings for more than five years always with shorts over as I do not have a athletic body. I don’t think about what other people think or say I wear leggings for My comfort, support warmth & wicking. I own my identity I wear my leggings proud and with no apologies I owe nothing to anyone
I am glad that men’s leggins are becoming more popular and accepted. More men are wearing them at the gym and in stores than ever before.
Thanks for posting this article with the heading “reasons why men should wear legging” as opposed to why guys shouldn’t wear them, as many others have in the past.
This is America were men are free to make our choices with fashion. Fashion belongs to both men and women alike.
