Best Shiny Leggings for Working Out

best shiny leggings activewear yoga pants fashion

Shiny tights are a great way to add some flair to your wardrobe. Shiny leggings may also be labeled as cire leggings, named after the waxy shine and smoothing treatment that some fabrics undergo to give it the metallic look. I remember shiny leggings became fashionable when lululemon released their Shine Tight in black and beautiful dark green. I unfortunately did not have luck with my Shine Tights on during practice. I immediately took them back to lululemon.

Fast forward 5 years after many reviews and searching, I’ve finally found the perfect shiny tights. Below are my picks for shiny leggings! They’re in order by preference.

#1 Carbon38 Takara Leggings

Takara leggings also come in high waist and 7/8 length as well (black color only). The leggings are $98 and colors are limited.

#3 Koral Lustrous Leggings

I’ve purchased and tried Koral before and wore them about 3 times before I let them go. I love Koral’s look but the quality tanks. The lustrous leggings snag like crazy. I ended up snagging my leggings on the first wear. I recommend them for low-impact sports and always keep away from velcro and rough surfaces.

Buy Koral on Amazon, Koral, NordstromREVOLVE, and Sculptique. Use discount code ALEXANDRA at Sculptique for 20% off!

#4 Purusha People
