Between living in Boulder, having a little one, and working from home, I can honestly say that leggings have 100% become my daily uniform. And because I wear them pretty much every single day, I feel like I’ve become a pretty good critic slash expert on what makes a good pair of leggings. So today I wanted to share my latest leggings obsession and give y’all a full review on the new Perform Leggings from Everlane (one of my favorite brands!).
I have countless sweaters from Everlane and have been obsessed with with their clothes for a couple years now. So when I heard that they were making leggings, I was both extremely excited and slightly skeptical. I’ve loved literally everything I’ve gotten from Everlane, but I also know I’m so picky about my leggings so I was curious how theirs would measure up. Welp, the verdict is in and I can now add leggings to the list of things Everlane can make perfectly!
versatile + multi-functional
So, the first thing that really sets these leggings apart IMO is the fact that you can wear them for any sort of activity. Typically my leggings are divided between workout leggings and non-workout leggings. But these perform leggings actually work well for everything from high intensity workouts to travel days. They feel and look good for pretty much any occasion! That’s why for today’s post I wanted to include both a workout look and a more casual, everyday look. The fabric is a premium performance fabric and it has lightweight compression. So, they hold you in without being overly tight if that makes sense. Since the leggings don’t have too many seams and the color options are so sleek, that really does just make them that much more versatile. I got them in the black and ink grey colors, and have already gotten so much use out of both pairs. They don’t look like they’re leggings you could only wear to the gym. You could easily wear them with a cute sweater and bootie to brunch!
affordable + comfortable
So most of my leggings typically cost around $80-$100. They can be a bit of an investment, but they’re literally the item I wear the most out of my entire wardrobe. I was SO pumped to see that these leggings from Everlane are $58 – that is such an incredible deal! Since I wear leggings so often, I always want to make sure I’m getting my money’s worth and not ever skimping on the quality. I need them to hold up well and feel good. These perform leggings are not only reasonably priced, but their quality is also really impressive. And since you can wear them for both workouts and everyday life events, I feel like you’re really getting your money’s worth with these.
So, let’s talk a little bit more about the fit + comfort of these leggings. They’re extra high-waisted, which I personally love and find to be the most flattering fit for leggings. The high-waist doesn’t sacrifice any comfort though. It feels good and not at all constricting. They hold you in just the right amount! Maybe this is TMI ha but I found that these leggings fit especially good in the butt! Again, just really flattering and form-fitting in the best way. The fabric has lightweight compression like I said above, but it also has sweat-wicking elements. I sweat a good bit when I workout and these leggings never showed that or felt super wet. They also aren’t see though at all, which is obviously super important! Side note: I’m wearing an xs in these and found them to fit true to size! I did the 28″ length and I’m 5’7, and it worked perfectly for me.

So if y’all are looking for a new pair of leggings or just tired of now having a versatile pair of leggings you can wear to anything, I honestly can’t recommend these perform leggings enough! I have been SO impressed with their comfort, fit, and versatile. Plus, you really can’t beat the $58 price tag. I’ve been a loyal Everlane shopper for years now and I am seriously SO happy they’ve started making leggings. I have no doubt these are going to be an everyday staple for me. Thanks so much for reading today’s post! Hope y’all have a good week!
