Fabrics 101: Airbrush – The Absolute Essential

Fabrics 101: Airbrush – The Absolute Essential

Nothing beats this fabric (& we've asked around)

How many times have you typed “best leggings” or “best yoga pants” into the search bar? Probably too many times to count? Us too.

All we want is a go-to, staple legging that’s lightweight but breathable, lounge-worthy but gym-approved, and sculpting but comfortable — is that too much to ask?

Alo didn’t think so. Which is why the design team went to work constructing a fabric that we’d be happy spending the rest of our days in. The result? Airbrush — the perfect, every-day fabric for yoga pants, bras, and tops.

For the days when you’re testing out a new boxing class or inviting a new boo over for drinks, Airbrush is the casual, iconic classic that keeps you calm, cool, and totally confident. Whether it’s the sculpting fabric or the breathable knit, we can’t really say, but this essential legging compliments whatever your day brings.

We’re breaking down our #1 closet staple below with the why, where, what, and how the heck didn’t you own a pair before, so let’s get started...

Airy & Breathable – making it your best friend during the hardest of HIITs and well-deserved R&R

4-Way Stretch – a move-with-you feel that lives up to the name (no, the fabric hasn’t truly been airbrushed onto your body, but it sure will feel like it)


Totally Opaque – movement-proof to the max, count on complete coverage during all of your favorite ways to sweat

Moisture Wicking – fabric tech that wicks away sweat and helps prevent odor


Cotton-y, Matte Finish – a smooth finish that’s the perfect base for any outfit

Sculpts & Smooths – for that snatched feeling and smooth look we all love on the street and in the studio

During a heart-pumping endurance class (thank you Jacy Cunningham and his Level Up series), don’t you want a performance fit with a barely-there feel but all-the-right coverage? Because same. Airy, opaque, and breathable for HIIT-ing your heart out.


A knit with all the softness and cotton-iness in the world makes movie nights more cozy and WFH way more comfy. (P.S. These are giving sweatpants a run for their money.)


Whether you’re skydiving, hiking, or rock-climbing, this fabric is the all-purpose staple you’re going to want by your side.


So smooth, sculpting, and classic making it the backbone of your closet and the perfect foundation for any outfit.
