I’ve recently really got into fitness and believe me, it was really hard to get motivated. Once I started embracing the world of fitness, I’ve become happier and more energetic, and it’s given me another excuse to shop, not for red sole heels or a lace tank, but for cute athletic wear. I’m not one to drop big bucks on Lululemon (I don’t think I’m ready to switch my budget from clothes to athletic wear yet, BUT I’m getting there), but there are various companies that sell great athletic wear at reasonable prices. One of my tips, that’s not fitness related, is to shop sale items for major brands. I bought some great stuff at half off! Always check!
I love layering tanks & sports bra’s over loose racer back t-shirts and cami’s. This allows you to color block (one of the summer’s hottest trends) and not look too overdressed. The great thing about working out is that you CAN be trendy.
I’ll make this post easy to navigate and start from TOPS to BOTTOMS!
1. Sports Bra’s & Tanks
This Y-back cami from Forever 21 is a great sports bra that is racer back friendly and comes in an array of colors, and it’s only $9.
For more support, this high impact racerback sports bra is a great alternative, also from Forever 21.
I love this contrast striped sports bra from Forever 21 and the concept is stylish and functional.
Basic is always best as you can throw on a great tank over a solid sports bra! Also from Forever 21.
Below are some awesome tanks that are cute, trendy and most importantly functional!

I love this knotted front sports bra from Body Language, it’s so dainty and even though you’ll be the only one seeing it (unless you don’t mind going bare belly), it’s a fun twist!
These (Top 2) ADORABLE and super flirty work out tops are so freakin’ cute, I could only dream of being able to sport them. If you can, Couture Active Wear has them in a variety of colors.
This Bia Brazil top is something I see Kim Kardashian rocking. It’s simple, not too sexy, stylish and clean.
2. Bottoms for your Booty
Bottoms I think are great when basic, but a play on trim color is always fun! Below are some great styles that won’t break the bank!

These adorable V-front pants from Body Language are playful and a little sexy, if you’re OK with being a little playful while sweating it out!
Want a little Pucci-inspired work out pant? These from Margarita Activewear are your go-to!
These Elisabetta Rogiani pants come in plethora of color combinations! You can mix and match your tops to your bottoms!
Same goes for these if you want that pop of color on your upper body rather than lower! Also from Elisabetta Rogiani!
Remember, when buying shoes, buy something you feel good in! The cool thing these days are the variety of color schemes to choose from, so you can REALLY coordinate if you want! Always a helpful tip; all black sneakers go with everything ;).
That’s all I can come up with right now, but stay tuned for customized outfits and a great post of athletic shoes!
