If you are at all like me and live in your athleisure 24/7, then you probably have heard of Alo Yoga. It took me a little bit to get on the Alo band wagon just because they have a tendency to run big on me, and thus I always have to order an xxs that is only available online. Day after day I kept seeing all my Pure Barre clients LTB in their darling Alo styles, and I finally caved into my envious desires.
What I love the most about the Alo esthetic is that it's different from the typical "Lululemon" look that has saturated the market. Alo Yoga has a edgier style, which allows their active wear to transition from the gym to the streets. Umm hello..... that's my life!
This brand plays with patterns, fabrics, and textures in their collections without sacrificing utility and quality. The lines within their leggings are slimming, and supply that "move-with-you" fit during a workout.
For those of you who haven't tried Alo Yoga the fit is different from Lululemon. I am very narrow in the hips, and don't have much curvature. Since I am small I have to wear an xxs (Comparison: Lululemon 2 / Beyond Yoga xs / Splits 59 xs / Kira Grace xxs ) in leggings. As far as tops are concerned they are pretty true to size, and I wear an xs.
Make sure you check out the new evermint collections because the color is GORG-eous!
