While we’re all for being unique, there’s a reason some products fly off the shelves: they do what they’re supposed to … and they do it well. When it comes to active wear, it’s a simple three-steps to success:
They fit like a dream
They look fly come happy hour
Their sweat-strength is second to none
While it’s great to be your own person (and all that jazz), following the crowd can land you with some pretty sweet produce. Not to mention, it’ll save you a trip to the local charity store in two weeks time. So, to get you on your way with the best of the best, we reached out to Alo Yoga—our go-to for yoga wear—to get the lowdown on their customers’ cult favourites. Consider this your ultimate guide to building a workout wardrobe that’ll withstand the test of time, trends and too many burpees. You’re welcome.
Coming in at number one is the Ripped Warrior legging in black. This heavyweight champ has been spotted on many inspiring yogis—including Ashley Galvin and Caitlin Turner—and non-yogis (aka model, Charlotte Mckinney) alike. Try them on and you’ll see exactly why they’ve been voted MVP.
Not far behind is the equally chic Moto legging in black and white, respectively. Available in high-waist and low-rise, with ribbed panels and mesh detailing, they’re like a sporty take on leather pants. It’s not a one or the other approach, you can never have too many black and white leggings, right?
This slide didn’t get its name for no reason. It’s one of our favourites and it seems, we’re not alone. Rocky Barnes has a pairand according to the data, she’s not the only one—it’s the third best-selling product at Alo.
While Sjana Earp looks good in everything, the Coast legging is a universally flattering style. With mesh panels in all the right places, not only are they breathable, they’re forgiving even during the more compromising poses. Available in a capri style (pictured above) or full length with stirrups, don’t be afraid to get upside down.
