The 10 Best Soft Capris Leggings For 2024

Would you rather work out with a gentle breeze cooling you off around your ankles? Then capri leggings are your best option. Wearing breathable, moisture-wicking clothing makes it easy to stay cool when exercising, but having your ankles exposed to the elements adds even more ventilation.

There's definitely not an activewear trend out there that could convince you to entirely give up leggings, but sporty dresses and athletic skirts will both provide you with a welcome change from them. 

We all adore our leggings, even though they aren't the most practical, rain or shine. Since leggings aren't always appropriate for warm weather, having a pair of cropped leggings on hand is essential when the temperature rises.

One thing is certain, though: you need a pair of cropped leggings you can move in, whether your summer exercise regimen consists of spin classes, early runs, or gym days. Fortunately for you, we've compiled the top capri workout leggings that are perfect for working out and beyond.

What are Capri Leggings?

A capri legging is a cropped legging that falls between your knee and ankle. It is sometimes referred to as a 3/4 legging or a 7/8 legging.

For those who prefer a shorter legging style or for petite individuals who might have trouble locating full-length leggings that aren't too long, the capri legging is a perfect option.

During the transitional months, when full-length leggings get a bit too warm but you still want more coverage than what shorts can provide, capri length leggings can be the perfect choice.

What Should I Wear With Capri Leggings?

In your wellness era? Capri leggings are in style and the ideal choice for whatever you do, whether you're starting the day with a hot yoga session or a Pilates class where you're working out your core. Perfect for those who want the support of a longer design but need the increased breathability of a shorter length when working up a sweat.

There are plenty of cute leggings outfits for your coffee run, studio class, or days when you take the dog for a walk when paired with a matching sports bra, crop tops, or zip-up jacket.


Capri Leggings vs Full Length Gym Leggings

Let's start by discussing how these leggings are different from a typical full-length pair. These are for you if your workout leggings roll down, bunch up your waistband or cuff the bottom of your leggings. Naturally, full length leggings usually reach your ankles and are worn for everyday wear.

On the other hand, cropped pants or leggings fall midway down your calf and are slightly shorter. This length is ideal for many fitness enthusiasts because it allows for flexibility and breathability. Your height and the sport you play will determine whether you want to wear full-length gym leggings or cropped leggings.

Capri Leggings vs 7/8 Leggings

You can also come across 7/8 leggings while looking for capri leggings. Remember that while all 7/8 leggings are cropped, not all cropped leggings are 7/8 leggings. The former are only marginally cropped because they are 1/8th shorter on the inseam. 

These usually sit nicely just above the ankle, albeit they usually rest higher on the leg than your standard full-length exercise leggings.

But bear in mind that smaller individuals who wear leggings might want to consider wearing petite gym leggings instead. That's because 7/8 leggings have a tendency to run a little long, which means that some people may find them to be big. Because of this, it's always a good idea to try on a few pairs until you find the right size leggings.

Best Soft Capri Leggings FAQs

What is the difference between leggings and capris?

As the name implies, capri leggings stop short of reaching your ankles, unlike full-length exercise leggings. They are instead cropped slightly above that region, frequently around your leg's calf.

What is the difference between 7/8 and capri?

Because they are notably shorter than 7/8 leggings, capri leggings—also referred to as cropped leggings—are similar. However, they cut off much higher, usually about mid-calf, rather than near the ankle.

Are cropped leggings out of style?

Capri leggings can be comfortable and fashionable whether you're wearing them for a workout or going out on the town with them and a gorgeous shirt. So don't worry about whether they're in or out of style if you love the way they appear and feel—wear whatever gives you a sense of ease and confidence!
