Leggings are probably the most crucial element to your yoga kit. You need them to be stretchy, breathable, hard-wearing, versatile and of course, stylish. If you’re making the journey from work or home to your yoga studio through the city, looking good is important.

Here are 7 of the best yoga leggings on the market right now.
