We might be stating the obvious here, but over the last few seasons, we’ve watched velour make a comeback so epic that we just had to add it to Alo’s signature fabric line up. Our go-to lounge faves like Alolux and Micro Waffle officially have some serious competition.
Why velour? Well, because it’s one of the softest textures ever made and truly looks as good as it feels. Feeling the Y2K nostalgia of those sweatsuits? Us, too! We took on the challenge to make velour softer, more luxe and better in every way possible for you to enjoy right now. When trendsetters like Kendall and Gigi are tapping into the velour renaissance, you know this moment isn’t one to be missed.
Whether you’re in the mood to kick it with your phone on DND or want to take a little bit of luxury wherever you go, velour’s got that allure. Keep reading for everything you need to know about our signature fabric & these stunning, must-have velour essentials.
