Sweating in Style. Fitness Clothes That Move Me.

e7e549a7699dad452e0ac2c8770ee77cWorkout clothes have come along way in the past several years. There is an entire market dedicated to fitness and lifestyle clothing that celebrates fashion and function for your time sweating and stretching at the gym, studio or wherever you choose to feel the burn.

I purchase all of my athletic gear on sale. The majority comes from Gapfit since they have frequent sales and I am a card member so I can use reward points and special discount promos. I typically spend $10-40 per item. Nordstrom Rack carries exclusive brands like Zella, Alo and Stella McCartney for Adidas.  Athleta, Lucy, and Lululemon are also places to check out during sales season.  Free People recently launched a line of  “movement” wear which is a little on the pricey side and newly launched so I’m not sure what the sale situation is. Many of the ballet dancer inspired pictures below are from their line. Finally, Old Navy is ideal if you’re on a tight budget.

I like to put outfits together and feel my best regardless of where I’m going. Whether it’s Target, school drop off, a meeting, or to the gym. Generally, feeling good makes one more productive so why not take a few extra minutes to put some flattering pieces together and coordinate workout clothes?  If you’re just starting an exercise regime or just want to stop wearing ripped concert t-shirts from the 80’s and sweatpants to workout in you should find these resources useful. Scour sale sections and start with the basics. Once you’ve got the following pieces in regular rotation you can add what feels good and comfortable. I wear mostly black, grey and pink but some ladies like bright colors and patterns. Whatever floats your boat. Here are some guidelines.

  • Black yoga pants
  • Black medium support sports bra
  • Fitted capri pant or legging in a pattern or color
  • Loose fitting racer back tank
  • Fitted tank with interesting detail or straps
  • Running short
  • Long sleeve pullover with interesting detail or neckline

Thankful for: Stylish active wear that inspires a good workout.

I’ve learned: When I feel good I work harder.

Wanting: To find a good ballet barre class.
