KÜHL LÉA DRESS Product Review

What do you do when you prefer workout clothes over "real" clothes?

You find the closest thing to women's workout clothes that you can get your hands on!

Thank goodness the athleisure trend is hot right now. And thankfully, there’s the KÜHL LÉA DRESS.

What I Love

kuhl_lea_dress_thumbholesThe material. This dress feels like a worn-in sweatshirt that you've lived in for years and years. It’s soft with just enough stretch in the places you need it with a soft, heathered polyester/spandex blend. I can sit criss-cross applesauce on the floor without feeling like I’m going to rip the dress in 10 different places.

Thumb holes. The greatest invention of this century is thumb holes. Pure genius for those of us with cold hands year round.

Warmth. As someone who is always cold, I can appreciate the lightweight fabric that’s breathable but still keeps me cozy without added bulk.

Versatility. I love that I can dress it up with tights and cute booties. If I want to keep it casual, it’s easy to toss on a pair of women's leggings and sneakers.

kuhl_lea_dress_pocketsPerfect for Travel. I stayed just the right temperature and comfortable while wearing the Lea Dress on a long travel day that involved multiple airports and time zones.

It’s also perfect for stashing in your bag for a wrinkle-free, grab-n-go outfit.

Pockets. With two large hand warming pockets on each side, it’s easy to carry your phone or lip balm. You may think that pockets add bulk, but they mysteriously disappear when not in use.

Fit. The Lea dress fits like a glove. The Princess line seams give a very flattering fit.

What I Didn’t Love

Currently, the LÉA DRESS is available in Black, Ash and Jasper. I'd love to see more color options, especially a nice red version.

Making the Grade

A definite five stars, two thumbs up, A+ for the LÉA DRESS.


Retailing for $89, the LÉA DRESS is worth every penny in my opinion. It’s a versatile piece that will be in my wardrobe for years to come.

I loved the fit and look of the LÉA DRESS so much that I excitedly ordered the LÉA PULLOVER. It’s the exact same thing except in a comfy shirt version that goes perfectly with jeans, shorts or yoga pants.

I received KÜHL apparel for this review at no cost. I received no other compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
