62 Workout Outfits That Will Make You Want to Hit the Gym
Personally, I feel more excited for a workout when I have a cute outfit to wear. There's so many places to get unique, affordable workout clothes. It's so fun to find a really unique piece with a one-of-a-kind, strappy back detail, a fun print, or a pop of color that coordinates perfectly with your sneakers. I love sports bras with unique necklines, back details, or prints, no-pill yoga pants that hold everything together nice and tight, and tops with unique cut outs and back details.
If you find yourself wearing workout clothes 50% of the time, then they might as well be clothes that make you happy, inspired and comfortable. I've put together a collection of some of my favorite workout looks currently inspiring me to get in shape for the move to San Diego. I can't wait to get back in the gym.
Here are some tips if you're out shopping... I've seen great matching sets at Nordstrom Rack, adorable sports bras at Forever21, and great zip ups at Old Navy. Macy's and Sports Authority have great sections and deals for Nike. I've heard the Gap has great leggings with many fit types. Outlet malls usually have awesome selections at their Nike, Reebok, New Balance, and Adidas stores-- the outlets are the way to go if you're wanting to stock up on these brands. Target has really comfortable sports bras, but I'm not super impressed with their bottoms. H&M active wear has pretty poor quality and fit from my experience. Victoria's Secret has an amazing new sports bra selection (I could see active wear becoming as strong as their swimwear someday). Marshalls and TJ Maxx have a nice selection of apparel, especially bottoms, but their athletic footwear selection is weak. My previous employer, Zappos and 6pm.com, have strong selections on apparel and footwear and lots of unique, exclusive colorways in your favorite styles from the best brands. I have found amazing deals and solid quality pieces at JCPenney, but not so much at Kohl's. Of course you can also go the more fancy schmancy route with brands like Lululemon, Zobha, Onzie, Vimmia, Oiselle, Alo, Lole, or Lorna Jane. Sometimes these premium brands are featured on flash sale sites like Hautelook, Zulily, or the Clymb, so I'd keep an eye out for those sales!
