Everlane Just Released Leggings — and They’re Seriously Amazing

Our favorite sustainable fashion brand has officially joined the activewear game, debuting the perfect performance legging for just $58. Ahead of the launch, Style Editor Jackie Homan gave them a try—and her honest review.

If you’ve been reading Jetsetter for a while, you probably know how much we adore Everlane. The sustainable fashion brand has worked its way into nearly every part of our wardrobes: our workwear (see: The Italian GoWeave Easy Pant), weekend-wear (we’re eyeing the new Double-Gauze Relaxed Shirt), footwear (like our beloved Day Glove flat), travel-wear (hello, Mover Pack) and even underwear (this bralette!). But until now, there’s been one key category we’ve been missing from the brand: activewear.

Today, Everlane dropped its first-ever legging—The Perform Legging—and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Apparently, neither could anyone else—Everlane says leggings have been their most highly-requested product to date.

I got the opportunity to give the leggings a try ahead of the release, and they far exceeded my expectations. Made from premium Italian performance fabric, they’re sweat-wicking and lightly compressive. When I wore them to my dance fitness class, they didn’t budge from my waist—no awkward riding up or slipping down. They’re also higher-waisted and have fewer seams than most athletic leggings I’ve tried, two factors that make them even more comfortable. I did feel they were a bit too lightweight to wear out and about in the winter, but they were just right for a studio class, and I’m excited to don them all spring and summer.

Like every Everlane launch, the Perform Legging is ethically-made and transparently priced. Each legging is comprised of 58% recycled nylon and dyed in a Bluesign-certified factory (which ensures no harmful chemicals are used). Everlane is consistently clear about the pricing of its products, breaking down how much the materials and labor cost, and disclosing their markup. The results? An affordable price point of $58—significantly less expensive than competitors like lululemon or Athleta.

The leggings come in two lengths (regular and ankle) as well as four sleek yet subdued colors: classic black, Ink Grey, Brandy Rose (a muted pinky-red), and Lichen (a mossy green). I picked up the Lichen pair and loved the way they looked with my black workout tank. The best part about the colors and style, though, is that they don’t just have to be worn for fitness purposes. They’re wearable enough to pair with regular tops and jackets for those occasions when you want to move around without sacrificing style.

Everlane started a waitlist for the leggings last week, and previous drops like this have sold out within the day. If that’s the case, you may have to stay tuned for a restock—but trust us, these workout wonders are worth the wait.
