I'm a big believer in doing the thing you're supposed to do in the outfit you're supposed to do it in. Kind of like that children's book that goes, "if you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to want some milk," but for me it's more like, "if you give a girl a tennis skirt, she's going to act like Serena Williams." So naturally, if I'm going to reluctantly workout I need very cute outfits to motivate me. Below are some of favorite places to snag the latest activewear trends out there right now.
ASOS 4505 Was anyone else woefully unaware that ASOS has it's own active wear line that is amazing and extremely affordable? Not only that, but they have options for all sizes including petite, tall, plus size and maternity. Currently purchasing everything they've got (maybe even a few maternity pieces to motivate the future baby mama in me).
So I'm new to this brand, but I'm into it. They have so many different styles for whatever makes you feel best when you're working out (or walking around all day in workout clothes to make people think you've worked out) and amazing color combos including my fave, ombre. Also they're also having a pre-black Friday sale starting Monday, so just another reason to jump on the Gymshark bandwagon ASAP.
Last but not least is Forever 21. Now I know you're probably thinking that these are just cheap materials that won't hold up after numerous workouts (because I thought the same thing), but I have to say they have really stepped up their activewear game in the past year. They also have a crazy amount of options and they're basically paying you to take them at these prices, so it's a win-win.
