Black Friday sales have already started! Alala’s Black Friday sale has been one of my favorites for a couple of years. I always end up with a pretty hefty haul, and this year won’t be any different. Over the seasons, I’ve tried out a ton of Alala styles, so I’m breaking it down with a quick-and-dirty guide to what I’m loving the most right now and why. You can get up to 40% off this long weekend (more details below!), which means some seriously killer deals.
Thanks to Alala for their continued support by sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
New season picks
This season, the tops and outerwear categories came in especially strong. Out of all the tops and outerwear I got this season, I can’t think of a single one I didn’t like. Still, I had to narrow it down somehow, so here’s what rose to the top.
What I love: warmer than any of my other puffers. Lots of details to love, like the inner chest pocket and hood drawstrings. The silver color is unique but still goes with everything I own. At 30% off (or 40%!), it’s an excellent buy.
Best for: girls who are cold all the time. The heavy weight means it’s best suited for colder climates.
What I love: the opaque, medium-compression fabric is good for just about any activity. Liquid finish won’t crack or peel off.
Best for: looking cool in a sleek, on-trend fabric. Leg-elongating fit is magic for us shorties. Great for those who need active gear that multitasks between workouts.
What I love: a flowy, draped look with silky soft fabric and a sassy mesh cut-out. Perfect 3/4 sleeves and just the right amount of looseness through the body.
Best for: when you need a bum-covering option. I found the proportions to work extremely well for my petite frame; shorties rejoice!
What I love: winter white is an unusual yet totally seasonally appropriate shade. Super-soft fabric feels great to wear.
Best for: light to medium warmth for the season. Wear it for hikes, winter sport layering, outdoor runs, or chilly gyms.
What I love: formerly known as the in a snap bra, this little number is as comfortable as it is stylish. Top mesh detail offers some modesty while still being breathable. (Also comes in bolt stripe.)
Best for: light to medium support up to a C cup or small D. I wear a 30D and get medium support from the XS.
What I love: neoprene fabric always brings that something special.
Best for: warm-up or to-and-from layering that specializes in cool girl vibes.
If you’re looking for more detailed info on any of my picks (and many more), I’ve got it covered in my Alala review archives.
What I love: a perennial favorite that I come back to season after season. A four-season pant that’s light enough to wear in the summer, but loose enough to layer with leggings underneath in the winter. This sale is the perfect time to pick up this staple.
Best for: days when you don’t feel like skin-tight leggings. I grab these for casual weekend wear and weightlifting sessions at the gym.
What I love: soft, supple fabric that still performs well in sweaty conditions. Not see through in spite of the light color. Gorgeous print. (Comes in another color scheme, too.)
Best for: like the liquid captains, these make an excellent all-around tight.
What I love: beautiful drape in luscious neoprene. I wear mine at least once a week.
Best for: secretly wearing activewear to work. The sleek silhouette is ideal for infusing a little class in your to-and-from layers.
