Stay cool and comfy, even during your hottest summer workouts.
When warm weather hits, the last thing you want to do is pull on a pair of thick leggings before a workout. Sure, you could opt for some airy running shorts or teeny spandex—but not all of us are willing to ditch our legging uniform just because temps are rising. The solution: lightweight leggings that can endure everything from hot yoga to a sweaty boxing class to a scorching summer run, while still delivering plenty of coverage and support. Scroll down for our favorite ultra-thin leggings that will keep you feeling cool all summer long.

C9 Champion Mesh Pieced Leggings
When it comes to airy workout apparel, mesh leggings are always a great option.
