Guide To Affordable Workout Clothes

Okay, I know that not all of us can be like Taylor Swift and come from the gym still looking super cute and well put together. However, you can still look trendy even when you’re working out. Here are some suggestions for some trendy yet still super comfy clothing for you to wear when heading to the gym, out for a run, to sports practice, or whatever it might be.

These colorblock capri’s from Kohl’s aren’t my favorite color but they offer several other different colors also. These are the perfect bottoms to wear to the gym. They aren’t sweatpants but they aren’t ridiculously short either, you can still get active without get too hot and sweaty, you know what I mean?

Here’s yet another pair of pants that are colorblocked except this one is from Target. I really love the color of these leggings and think they would be awesome to workout in.

This one isn’t exactly cheap but if you’re looking for a fashionable supportive crossback sports bra, this is for you.

If you’re looking for something bound to make an impression, check this sports bra from Forever 21 out. And these VERY short shorts also from Forever 21 out. They would both go really well together.

Love these Zumiez galaxy workout pants. They are comfortable, affordable, and also cute and trendy. These are must haves for workout wears.

This Roxy’s hoodie is perfect if you’re going outside to run during the colder weather and what not. It’s an equal balance of comfortable and cute, therefore it’s perfect for wearing when working out.

What better place to shop for workout clothes then Nike? A lot of their stuff may seem a bit on the expensive side, but a lot of it is also pretty affordable and always good quality. Be sure to check out this particular sports bra and other workout gear and running shoes.

Sports Fashion In Movies

Okay stay with me here, it may seem weird to get any type of inspiration from characters in movies about sports. However, if you want a little bit of a sporty look, these can be some cool suggestions to take notes from! I tried to make this gender neutral. Basically, it’s more about the comfort that these characters provide then looking super fashionable.

Dottie Hinson from A League Of Their Own

Dottie from A League Of Their Own has an effortless tomboy look that is pretty chic and awesome. She also has really great hair that you probably wouldn’t want to have today when playing softball or whatever sport you play, since you’re bound to get that gorgeous hair extremely dirty. But hey, it’d look just as great pulled back as well. I love the uniforms that they wear in this movie although they are definitely more than a little bit outdated. I still think they look beyond cool.

Lizzie Bradbury from Wimbledon

Kirsten Dunst also has perfect hair in this movie. Her character has a fairly simple style as a tennis player. But again, her hair looks awesome and I really love her skirt. Plus, her scarf in the first picture also proves that the character herself has a great sense of style. You can look athletic on the court, and be a fashionista off the court and I love that fact.

Missy Pantone from Bring It On!

Okay, so this one is on a more goth route than the other two for sure. But I thought it’d be best to represent a lot of different styles and this is certainly mixing the list up quite a bit so why not? I picked to talk about Missy because I already talked about one character played by Kirsten Dunst so I figured this was the best choice. Plus I dig how different Missy is from other characters. She auditions for the squad in the outfit that can be seen here in the first picture. Then she has a transformation in a sense, and becomes a cheerleader. However, she doesn’t become preppy by any means. She still keeps her attitude throughout the movie which is great to watch. And I love the personal addition she adds to her style. Missy is definitely the coolest cheerleader in movie history.

Spring Into Fashion!

March gives us some serious hope that Spring is just around the corner. While we’ve had glimpses of Spring this winter, it’s always gone back to the bitter cold at the end of the day. But there’s definitely some hope that Spring is lurking in the shadows waiting to come out. So here are some looks inspired by the warmer weather that will hopefully give you some inspiration and hope.

1. Mod Cloth Skirt

Corny names aside, this is ridiculously cute skirt that’s perfect for Spring.

2. UO Dress

I can always count on Urban Outfitters for the cutest clothes regardless of the season. There’s just something about their Spring collection that is even more amazing than usual. I highly recommend buying one or two things from there if you need some cute clothes for this season!

3. Wallet from LuLu’s

This super adorable bow wallet from LuLu’s is perfect for Spring! You can just carry it around wherever you go and manage to look extremely style while doing it. I highly recommend this one!

4. Sunglasses from the Loft

Really love how stylish these sunglasses are. Spring may not be exactly the right time, but it’s close enough to get into the warm weather spirit of it all.

5. Anthropologie Oxfords

Obsessed with these oxfords. I’ve always thought these shoes were adorable but these are especially attractive to me. This is perfect for the weather and it’s cheerful and screams Spring.

6. Topshop Sundress

This might be more appropriate for summer. But if there’s some really nice days or if you have a special event, this would be an adorable dress to wear. This is especially incredible for those of you going out of town for Spring break, maybe even taking a beach trip.

7. Charlotte Russe Top 

The colors of this top have Spring written all over it. The crochet-back is lovely and pleasant. I love clothes from this store because of how the vibe is Spring and Summer.

8. Wet Seal Shirt

This basic floral print shirt is essential and weather appropriate. Wet Seal offers affordable and trendy clothes. You got to love the colors and patterns.

9. Old Navy Shorts

These shorts may be a little too early to break out. However, if you’re going to the beach for break, these are needed. The floral pattern is gorgeous and fun. Old Navy definitely has the cutest shorts.

10. H&M Shorts

Figured I’d include one more pair of shorts. These are very Summer like, but will work in Spring as well. High waist shorts are the best so we might as well start breaking them out before Summer officially begins.

Online Shopping I Love

Online shopping is a lot more difficult than I anticipated. I expected it to be easy to navigate through all the online sites and what nots. Unfortunately, that turns out to not be the case. At least in my own experience, I find it hard to narrow out the options since there’s just so much to choose from. Here’s a few sites that have become my trusty companion for online shopping.

Urban Outfitters 

Need I say more? Urban Outfitters is one of the best options for online shopping. Yes, the clothes run a bit on the expensive side at times. But there’s just so many options and there’s more than just clothes offered there as well. They also have cool gifts, stationery, beauty products, cards, posters, and record players. They have everything one could possibly need.

H&M

This store is really rad and always seems to have some sort of sale happening. They have any and all clothes, accessories, etc. that you could possibly want. They have cute and affordable items. This is definitely an essential store for any college student or human on a budget!

Forever 21

They also have some really great deals happening all the time. My favorite types of sales are the buy one get one free ones or the free shipping ones! Forever 21 delivers on both of these deals. They have some awesome tees. It kind of bums me out that they don’t have any jeans but they have some classy pants to make up for it.

GoJane

It’s not all that different from the other sites I’ve already listed, BUT GoJane is even cheaper than a lot of the other sites. They also have really useful coupons and codes to get some major discounts.

Urban OG

They have cute things. Need I say much more?

ASOS

ASOS is located in the UK but they also happen to have a store here in America that has some great clothing to choose from.
