Alo Athletic Wear Review and Giveaway!
I have two requirements for my workout clothes: One, they must be comfortable. Two, they must flatter my pear shape. (I’d work out in polyester leisure suits if they were comfortable and made me look more proportioned.) So when ALO Clothing sent me a pair of Yoga Relax Pants in black and a Cross Over Straps Tank I was thrilled. I rarely buy workout wear for myself and what beats cute, functional, feminine and comfortable clothing? Cute, functional, feminine, comfortable clothing that visually pares the pear!
The Yoga Relax Pants live up to their name. Relax. I love feeling like I’m wearing my PJs without actually wearing my PJs. (Especially since all my PJs are full of holes.) In the last two weeks, I’ve worn my new Yoga Relax Pants on a roadtrip, for workouts, for errands, lounging around, and right now at the library where I’m working on this post. They are that comfortable. The fabric is made out of bamboo that feels like a well loved t-shirt without looking like a well loved t-shirt. So soft. (I should also mention, the fact that these pants have survived my laundry skills multiple time is true testament to their quality.)
Regarding the Cross Over Straps Tank, the design is in the details with satin trim and flattering seams down the back and sides. It’s so pretty it almost makes me wish I didn’t workout alone in my garage. See, I love the back!
Before I agreed to do the review and giveway, I read Alo Clothing’s website thoroughly and liked that they have a mission that I can stand behind.
alo:Mission Create high performance, stylish lifestyle wear with outstanding function, designed and produced with minimal impact on the environmental elements alo stands for: Air. Land. Ocean. We provide customers with a choice that is respectable of the environment with out sacrificing fashion.
While I love companies that try to minimize their impact on the environment, I also love companies that don’t sacrifice style in the process. Who says granola has to be grunge. Take a look at their fall video.
Now for the cool part. Alo Clothing is offering my readers one pair of Yoga Relax Pants in the size of your choice. That’s right, we can be twinsies! Honestly, I’m so excited to be able to giveaway a pair of these great pants to one of you guys!
