Aerie’s Viral Crossover Leggings Are Back In Stock Again (But Not For Long)

Leggings were already considered to be a pretty universal wardrobe staple even before a global pandemic forced us all to move indoors, and the compressive pant went from off-duty weekend attire to everyday body-support necessity. Now, when shoppers catch wind of a supernaturally flattering pair, a virtual stampede to shop them ensues. This is precisely what happened on November 20, when a video posted by TikTok influencer @hannahschlenker showcased Aerie’s OFFLINE crossover leggings to her (almost) 700,000 followers and they completely sold out, leaving legions of leggings-lovers out in the cold.

If you thought 2021 was off to a rocky start, you were right — but right now, we have a glimmer of good news. We discovered that Aerie just restocked these coveted leg-huggers in black for the second time. (No info on any additional colors, but you better believe we’re hot on the trail of any updates.) And, if this single pair of tight pants won’t satisfy your lounging needs, never fear: we also combed the internet for every single serviceable dupe of the v-waisted style we could find — unearthing options from the likes of Nike, ASOS, Amazon’s Core 10 activewear label, and more. So, if you see a pair of waist-trimming, curve-hugging leggings in your future, get to shopping — Aerie’s coveted pair definitely won’t stick around for long.

You never want something until you can’t have it. So, each week in The Sell-Out, we’re getting the scoop from your favorite retailers on what’s selling like crazy. Watch this space to find out what everyone’s buying, sign up for waitlists, and keep tabs on restocks.
