Bum-huggers, split-leg shorts, skorts, tights—there are a lot of options when it comes to covering your booty! However, if you’re going to have just one, capris are your best option for year-round wear. You still have decisions to make—compression, pockets, styling and fit—and you can’t go wrong with these three options.
Old Navy Go-Dry Cool Compression Crops, $27
Smooth compression with mesh behind the knees for added breathability and a girl-bits friendly, diamond-panel (aka gusseted) crotch means you can move with comfort. oldnavy.com
Sugoi Ignite Capri, $85
With a figure-flattering, wide waistband (minimizing muffin top), thigh sleeve pocket (an iPhone 6 doesn’t budge) and back pocket for a key, money or snack, these are made to wear for your run and beyond. Besides the handy added features, the durable and luxurious fabric is what really sets them apart. sugoi.com
Opedix Dual-Tec 2.0 3/4 length, $225
These innovative compression tights may be your hack to better alignment and speedier recovery. Muscles and ligaments are supported from your knees to your backside with body-mapped construction to help reduce wear and tear on you. The premium fabrics, smart design and bomber fit come at a hefty price tag, but they are cheaper than weekly physical therapy appointments! opedix.com
