Usually I buy workout gear 24/7/365, I love it. But I realized recently that I kind of took a hiatus this past six months. I was so concentrated on buying suits and suit adjacent things for work, that workout gear took a backseat. Well, enough of that! I would much rather buy neon spandex than black wool, believe me!
Here is combination of my current favorites and wish list:
My best friend recently bought these from Athleta and I’m totally jealous:
It’s a little hard to tell but they’re call “stardust” and they basically look like purple and black leopard print. Fantastic! Apparently Athleta’s standard fabric cocktail (% spandex vs. % cotton, etc) is only one percent different than Lulu’s, so it’s basically the same quality with a more affordable price tag (I saw that tidbit in an article last month that I can’t find…).
And these look like good running/spinning capris from Under Armour:
They have a zipper on the lower back/butt which is why I say running or spinning. Not optimal for rolling around in Pilates…
I just got this long sleeve from UA that is great for running in chilly weather:
It might be hard to tell in the photo, but it’s metallic and shiny! So that means it needed to come home with me.
When it comes to inside workouts though, I think this tank from UA needs to get into my closet:
I have a couple other mesh tanks from UA and I love them! This looks like a slightly different cut so I need to add it to my collection.
Also I keep seeing Nike’s Dry Fit shirts like this one that look and feel really soft and stretchy, but I can’t decide if the clingy nature would be kind of unflattering when I’m at the gym (in case you didn’t know, Arlington’s Gold’s Gym is a dress to impress atmosphere):
And PS- in case you didn’t know, printed leggings are in. According to everyone. Do it.
