It finally happened: unicorn workout leggings! I’ve seen a few pairs floating around out there, but if I was going to get a pair of unicorns, I wanted them to be just right. Werkshop is my go-to brand for high quality printed workout bottoms and they finally released the unicorns this summer. I like Werkshop’s take on the unicorn design because it captures the fantastical elements of unicorns without going over-the-top, full-on Lisa Frank with it.
I debated for a while between the cropped and full length unicorns, but ultimately I settled on my tried-and-true crops. The pattern between the two versions are very similar, the unicorn is a bit larger on the full length leggings and has a little space below its hooves. I got my usual XS and they fit like my Werkshops always do.
Although Werkshop’s darker colors are always totally opaque, some of the lighter pairs are not. The lighter side of this pair can show through slightly in a bend/squat, so you might want to avoid anything dark or patterned underneath.
As usual, the pattern is incredibly vibrant with lots of little details. These aren’t just a unicorn pattern slapped on leggings, there’s clearly a lot of thought that went into these. The purple and blue pattern is easy to match with all sorts of top colors.
Speaking of matching, I decided to get the matching sports bra as well. The pattern on the bra doesn’t actually have a unicorn on it, but it coordinates with the background pattern. I wrote a more thorough review of Werkshop’s sports bras in this post. In brief, the bras offer light-to-medium support. The bras have the same firm but flexible feel as the leggings.
