We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for spring wardrobe builders that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
A few years ago, I fell into a deep fitness hole. I had just discovered weightlifting, and the excitement of training for something transformed me into a full-fledged gym rat. Naturally, if you go to the gym five days a week, you’re going to need cute outfits to make it a little more worthwhile; that’s when I first discovered Alo Yoga. The brand’s main appeal was its abundance of leggings in a variety of unusual colors and finishes that you couldn’t get anywhere else—like pink iridescent leggings. Alo’s Airlift leggings quickly became my favorite pairs, and as someone who owns over 30, that means a lot!
Over the years, the brand has expanded well beyond simply leggings and sports bras. Instead of being a destination for only workout clothes, Alo has positioned itself as a go-to for cute clothes in general. Of course, it’s still a place to buy really great leggings, but you can also find really on-trend pieces, too, like elevated sweatsuits and cargo pants. Kendall Jenner recently became an ambassador for the company, so I’d say it’s definitely expanded.
Despite my steadfast allegiance to its leggings, I had yet to try any of Alo’s athleisure offerings—until now. For this season’s installment of The Great Try-On series, I gave a few of the brand’s best sellers and new arrivals a test drive. Keep clicking below to see how everything fared.
