As a busy mom of two, Hilary Duff knows that running around after your children can be a workout.
The 32-year-old “Lizzie McGuire” star was spotted in Los Angeles with her 17-month-old daughter Banks Violet in a go-to uniform for most moms on the go: leggings, sneakers and pullover sweatshirt.
Duff was photographed holding on to her pig-tailed toddler wearing the Perform Legging, an ultra lightweight, high-waisted compression tight from sustainable fashion brand Everlane. In true celebrity fashion, Duff put a street-style twist on the altheisure staple, pairing her leggings in Brandy Rose with a cozy City Girl Track Pullover from Alo, gold hoop earrings and bracelets.
The $92 leggings are made from 58 per cent recycled nylon and manufactured in Everlane’s factory in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Not only does the company do good for the environment, but it ensures its employees work in ethical facilities committed to community development by providing financial and health education to their more than 70,000 employees, most of whom are women.
Our editorial team was able to test the Perform Leggings from Everlane earlier this year.
“When I tried them on the first time, I thought they were a bit too lightweight for my personal needs,” said Yahoo Canada Style managing editor Hilary Hagerman. “ As someone who rarely works out and whose exercise is limited to walking my dog (a lot), I tend to gravitate towards heavier leggings that I don’t worry about pulling or tearing. However, the second time I put these on, I started to see why some of my other teammates love these leggings. They’re so comfortable and lightweight — and they honestly hold up quite well, and are warmer than expected. I wore them on a recent snowy hike with my dog and they kept me warm and dry.”
If you’re looking to snag a pair before they sell out, keep in mind that Everlane recommends going up a size.

Moving into spring and summer, the Perform Legging would work well for warmer temperatures for outdoor workouts or even hot-yoga classes. These leggings, being on the thinner side, are best paired with seamless underwear in skin-toned colours, like the Everlane ReNew Thong.
“I do yoga 4-5 times per week, typically purchase premium leggings as they are the ones that have the best fit + performance but now I'm definitely sold on the Everlane premium legging. Nearly half the price, and the fit is perfection,” wrote one Everlane customer. “The fabric is buttery soft, but with the right amount of hold and thickness that makes it look super flattering.”
