These patchwork P.E Nation mid-rise capris are all we need to get ourselves in gear for the new year.

Punch It Up

As much as we love our black leggings, they're getting a bit worn. These Alo Yoga High-Waist Airbrush Leggings are the perfect replacement (Gigi Hadid agrees). Not only do they bring a punch of color and shine to your kickboxing routine, but an extra-wide waistband and smooth flatlock seams also ensure a comfortable fitness class, whatever the workout.
