Alo Yoga Clothing Giveaway!

When I promise you a good giveaway, friends, I deliver a good giveaway!

A long time ago, I discovered Alo clothing through Melissa’s review. It sounded like a fantastic company to me: eco-conscious, hip, dynamic, and versatile. This is a thoughtful company, and a passionate one. I loved reading their mission statement online:

To 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 respectful of the environment without sacrificing fashion.

Through the use of recycled and minimal impact materials, Alo creates high performance active wear that delivers superb function, fit and style. With environmentally mindful design and production processes, our men’s and women’s collections utilize eco-friendly performance fabrics that provide outstanding comfort and results…At Alo headquarters in Los Angeles, California, our employees utilize reclaimed and recycled corporate materials on a daily basis, maintain a sustainable office environment by powering the building with solar panels that line the roof, and, although we are not yet carbon neutral, daily strides are made in that direction. We pass our knowledge on to consumers in hopes that they, too, will make strides towards a lower impact lifestyle.

Admirable stuff! In the last few years, I’ve become very good at veganizing my wardrobe (check out last year’s post on shopping for a vegan parka), but I’m the first to admit that my general eco-consciousness as a consumer lacks something to be desired. By supporting companies like Alo, I feel that I’m taking small strides in the right direction. When that also means sampling some of the best and cooles yoga wear I’ve ever seen, it’s the very definition of a “win-win”!

The folks at Alo could not have been more enthusiastic or gracious when I got in touch. They offered to send me not one, but five different pieces. The first of these were hot yoga shorts. I’m including a photo from the Alo website because I stupidly left them in NYC over Thanksgiving. They are short shorts to be sure, but very cute, and ideal for Bikram or heated Vinyasa (the latter is what I practice):

My shorts looked exactly like these, but came in black and gray, rather than light and dark pink.

I was also sent the coolest sports bra I’ve ever owned:

Confession time! I wear sports bras almost every day. Not the super supportive, sweaty ones I work out in, but soft, cotton ones—bandeau bras with straps, I guess, which isn’t the same as a sports bra, but is in the same family. As much as I ought to embrace sexy lingerie because I’m worth it, and so on, I’ve just never had the energy. Sports bras are near and dear to my heart—both the ones I sweat in, and the ones I wear around.

This is my fave workout bra yet—supportive and functional, but also cute enough for me to wear on its own in a REALLY sweaty Down Dog Yoga class. (And believe me, that room can get hot enough for me to suspend my modesty.)

Next up? Mesh insert capri pants. AKA, a chance for me to treat you all to some close ups of my thighs. Sorry guys.

I love these—possibly my favorite Alo item. What makes them so great are the slim fitting leg, coupled with the high waist! I’m getting to a stage in life where low rise just doesn’t always feel right. It’s great to workout with a little more comfort and support from a higher rise pant, but still feel that the material is clingy and form-fitting.

Next, the cutest track jacket I have ever owned:

Light, bright, and adorable. Plus, cute little thumb holes, so that you can keep your hands warm if you go for a run in it.

Last, but certainly not least! This super comfortable cotton top:

I love my spandex yoga wear, but sometimes it’s nice to bend and stretch and flow in a breathable, simple cotton shirt. And as an added bonus, this tank is cute enough to wear with jeans or shorts in the summer, too.

Now that you’ve fallen in love with Alo, here’s the good news: you can enter to win a selection of Alo clothing for yourself here on CR! One of my lucky US readers will have the chance to win a sampling of Alo items, much like the package I received. As a reminder, that was:

  • Mesh insert capris
  • Athletic short short
  • Scoop neck bra
  • Response Track Jacket
  • Cotton tank

Your winning selection may vary slightly in accordance with what’s on seasonal offering at Alo, but no matter what, you will be guaranteed a new collection of hip, flattering, and eco-conscious clothing that is cute enough to wear outside of the studio. I should know—I wear my Alo garments to class constantly!

In order to win this giveaway, you can do any one of the following five things. Each will count as a separate entry, so leave me a comment for each of them.

  1. Peruse the Alo website, and let me know what items look coolest to you.
  2. Tweet about this giveaway, including the URL to my post (example: @choosingraw is giving away a collection of yoga clothes from @aloclothing! https://bit.ly/tS3mmd)
  3. Like Alo on Facebook
  4. Follow Alo on Twitter

I will pick a winner by 8:00 pm (EST) next Wednesday, the 14th of December. I will also be hosting a killer giveaway on Tuesday—this time, for a special vegan sweet treat. Happy Holidays, indeed.

Good luck!

  11. Alo’s ASYMMETRICAL GEO JACKET is a must-own. Elegantly minimal – and as the Master Bruce Lee reminds us, height of cultivation always runs to simplicity – yet functionally loaded. It’s the ultimate sporty track-jacket /yoga wrap fusion; showing a feminine, fitted, soft silhouette with subtle seam detail and techy thumbholes. What’s not to love?

    @ Gena – getting people back to basics, the health and beauty of real food from REAL earth – your mission is so simple and yet complex. You’re lucky to be championing this vital cause – and let me know if I can help ๐Ÿ™‚ At this juncture i just eat well and share my experiences w food w loved ones – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve so much more to say on this – esp about nutrition as it pertains to kids – but i’ve already over-hogged your virtual space ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I like the block waisted pants. I am losing weight steadily so I’m in need of pants but also sports bras. I love the twist back yoga bra…so cute.

  13. The Geo workout tunic is pretty killer and would definitely be a step up from my beat up old men’s undershirts from the drugstore!

  14. so many great items on alo’s website – ive never even heard of them – i’m glad you featured them. so i particularly like the long short and the twist back yoga bra (if it would actually fit me well since i’m big big on top). And especially the uber cozy hoodie because who could resist uber cozy as a description!

  15. I love everything on the site! But mostly the pants you are wearing! Slim cut so they don’t get in the way or feel heavy is fantastic!
