If 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that I need to need to have a good pair of leggings ready to go at ALL times.
I know it may sound funny, but I am so much more motivated to workout when I have cute workout clothes.
Year of Ours Review
Given my reality, I consistently try new brands of workout clothes. I recently tried Year of Ours workout clothes for the first time; I was blown away! I’m not saying this to be dramatic, but the Year of Ours ribbed leggings (buy here) really are amazing. They are unique, comfortable, and fashionable. They can be worn while working out, lounging around the house, or even running errands!
About Year of Ours: A Female-Run Company Focused on Inclusion For All Body Shapes and Sizes
Year of Ours (YOS) is Los Angeles based activewear brand with a focus on inclusion for all body types. Sizes in every style range from XS through XXL.
The founder Eleanor Haycock said it best when she said, “the brand really was started from the lack of inclusion in the activewear and fashion industry in 2016….Things have changed a lot since then, but we really wanted to have a brand that was for every body, and that we actually wanted to wear. There are too many brands that target a very specific customer. I think that’s a really outdated way of looking at brand building and marketing.”
YOS clothes are made in the USA with the highest-quality and smartest fabrics.
YOS are on the pricier side. The leggings are about $100 and the sports bras are in the $60-$80 price range. While their clothes are a bit of an investment, you will NOT regret making it.
Year of Our Veronica Leggings
These are my favorite leggings from the brand. I purchased their Veronica Leggings in a navy blue color from Shopbop. I chose them because of the unique ribbed look and how high the waistband shape. The v-shape at the waistband detail is flattering across the front of the pants. Even my husband commented about how flattering the style was. Buy the shorts version here.
Warning – These are currently selling out fast! Celebrities like Kendall Jenner wear the Year of Ours Ribbed Leggings paired with the Ribbed Long Sleeve Crop Top (Buy from Nordstrom) and now they are sold out in most stores.
Year of Ours Football Leggings
The Years of Ours Football Leggings are another one of their top selling styles. The angled high waist with a lace-up front pays homage to a pair of football pants. Somehow a pair of spandex pants made of active rib material that is reminiscent of American football still creates a chic flattering look. You can currently purchase these at Urban Outfitters and Carbon 38.
Gabriella Rib Top
The Gabriella Rib Top was another one of my favorite purchases from Year of Ours. I love that it serves as a sports bra or a top.
It is tight enough for running as long as you don’t have huge boobs. If you need more support it would be easy to wear a sports bra underneath. For reference I am a size C cup and am able to run in this without issue. You can purchase this top at Revolve or Urban Outfitters. Note – different stores have different colors and sizes available so make sure to check out multiple stores to try to find your size and color in stock.
Year of Ours Ribbed Bralette
This isn’t really a sports bra for running or jumping, but could still work for cycling, walking, or yoga. Honestly, given its limitations I feel like this sports bra isn’t special. I only bought it because it completed my matching set with my Year of Ours shorts.
Note – Each site sells different styles of the brand so you might have to shop around to find the exact style/color you want. Year of Ours clothing changes each season so if you see something you like make sure to snatch it up immediately because it will most likely sell out and not be restocked.
Care Instructions: You will want to machine wash your leggings in cold water, inside out, and with a gentle detergent. I have been using this Biokleen natural detergent for years now and love it. Afterwards, lay flat or hang on a drying rack like this foldable one to dry.
Are Year of Ours Workout Clothes Worth Buying?
In general, I’m a big fan of Year of Ours workout clothes. They’re flattering, comfortable, and incredibly high quality. I’ve been wearing mine at least a few times a week. For everything from running to yoga to the sauna and they’ve been holding up great – no pilling, no splitting, no stretching out, and definitely not see-through! I love that I can wear them for almost any occasion and that, when I’m working out, they provide the right amount of both comfort and compression.
