Another anniversary — Alice + Olivia’s 20th — was nodded to on June 15 with a prom-inspired extravaganza with live music from Gracie Abrams and DJ Kiss. Founder Stacie Bendet hosted the event for 700 fans including Ella Emhoff and KidSuper at The Close East Lawn behind The High Line Hotel. Many turned out wearing looks from the label that were 10 to 20 years old, as well as more of-the-moment styles. Twelve hours later, Alice + Olivia’s site traffic and social media were buzzing more than normal, according to a company spokesperson.
“You don’t want anything too tight or low-waisted,” notes Kingswell. “It’s all about feeling comfortable.” While her personal go-to is Lululemon’s Align leggings for its high-waist, soft fabric, and stretchy fit, pant leggings certainly aren’t the only way to go. With the rise in fitness and lounge apparel as a pandemic-induced quarantine emphasized comfort wear, we’ve been seeing plenty of iterations of the workout unitard. For pilates, give FP Movement or Girlfriend Collective’s options a try—one pant length, the other bike short length that both make getting workout ready that much simpler. Or, Koral’s shorts are designed to sculpt and support your body throughout wear.
