Fashion trends come and go (and come and go), but there are some things that will never go out of style. One of them is the timeless animal print. Animal print leggings are more popular this season than ever. You can find their traces everywhere. Among them, Leopard has to be the most often seen print. In addition to that, cheetah, python / snake and zebra prints are also well liked. To prove how popular animal print leggings are this season, I list 21 pairs from brands I like and / or follow closely here. Even though I don't own most leggings I share today, I hope to shed some light of them based on my experiences of the brands.
Note: The list below is based on the alphabetical order of the brand.
First off, Athleta Leopard Elation Ultra High Rise Tight in Powervita. This is the first and the only (so far) animal print legging I purchased (kept) this season. Stay tune for the upcoming review!
Overall Rating - 9.6 / 10
PROS / DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix is a versatile legging. It can be worn for high impact workouts as well as yoga including the heated class. The fabric is very stretchy yet providing enough compression for muscles support. It is lightweight and breathable. The flat waistband stays put and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / Due to the light color of the legging, it can be see-through unless wearing a nude panty underneath.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the purchase of DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. It covers all performance properties I need from studio / gym to street. Moreover, it provides a comfortable and flattering fit. Since it is a light color legging, wearing a nude underwear is a must to avoid see-through.

PROS / DYI Navy + Ivy Striped Printed Signature Crop covers everything I need for yoga as well as gym workouts. The medium high compression fabric is four-way stretch, breathable and moisture wicking. The flat and wide waistband fits comfortably around the stomach and stays put with movement.
CONS / I can't think of anything I dislike about this legging. If I have to pick one, I wish the bottom hem could have fitted tighter below the calf.
BOTTOM LINE / DYI Navy + Ivy Striped Printed Signature Crop is a great legging that I highly recommend to everyone. Either you are a dedicated yogini, a gym rat or neither, the legging has you covered. It provides a wide range of movement for yoga, sufficient compression to support muscles for high intensity workouts, and a comfortably hug for lounging at home.

PROS / DYI High Shine Signature Tight is a perfect studio-to-street legging. It is made with the lightweight Brazen fabric, which is silky soft, stretchy and fast dry. Unlike most glossy shine leggings, the tight does not show VPL (visible panty line).
CONS / The legging isn't very flattering on me. It doesn't lift and butt and fits loose especially around the crotch. I should have got my regular size (XS) for a better fit though I am a small according to the size chart.
BOTTOM LINE / I like the performance aspect of DYI High Shine Signature Tight. The fabric is light weight and low compression which is ideal for heated yoga. In addition, it is breathable and fast dry. With that said, the legging is unflattering on me. It fits baggy with extra fabric around the crotch. Wearing my regular size would have given me a better "hug" and a true size fit.
