I love working out, and I just ADORE workout clothes! There's something special about finding that perfect pair of yoga pants, greatly supportive sports bra, or warm (but not too hot) zip up jacket. I try all sorts of different brands of sports clothes all of the time. When I find something that really works, I absolutely stick with it. So, today I am sharing my favorite brands of workout wear with you guys, and breaking down their specific strengths that keep me coming back for more. GOLDSHEEP
I was introduced to Goldsheep clothing via WWE. They came to a show and gave many of us divas different pieces to try. I absolutely fell in love! This brand has the most unique patterns of leggings I have ever seen. They are always coming up with new slick patterns too, which is super fun and cool. Below I have the pink pineapple leggings on, and these southern style holster leggings as well (gun included, look out now). Their signature tank top is soft, lightweight and ready for sweating. One of the great things about this brand is the legging length. These are the perfect length for my body. I know I look taller (years of modeling, I know how to stand and pose to appear elongated), however, I am only 5'5"! Still at average height, many times leggings are too long, or too short. I have the same problems with jeans. So if you're average height, Goldsheep leggings will fit you quite comfortably 👌🏽
It took me some time to join the Lululemon revolution, mainly because their clothing isn't cheap. However, now I have a closet filled with Lulu, and I can attest that every piece I own has been worth every single penny.
Lululemon grows exponentially over time because they get the basics right. The crops, tops, sports bras, leggings, wind resistant pants and jackets...they all are pieces that you're going to have for a long time, and they are going to go well with everything. I have zip ups from 5 years ago that are still going strong. The quality of the fabric that they choose to use is far superior to many brands. If you get the chance, check out some of their sweat-wicking fabrics. If you go into a store they will tell you all about them, but the bottom line is, they keep you warm, dry, and comfortable, even on your hardest working days .
I've just come to know Onzie (pronounced Own-zee) over the past year and I must say...gah I'm obsessed! I'm very impressed with their uses of sheer fabric. I like shear illusion in my dresses that I wear for WWE shows, so why not let that gravitate over into my work out life?? It's just subtly sexy. I'm not one to wear short shorts in the gym, however, I'll do a whole lot of peekaboo shear action. Onzie is great for this, as well as interesting patterns. I've already expressed my love for those earlier on. Why look like everyone else? I make fashion statements while I squat. There's nothing wrong with it 💁🏽. Onzie also offers very reasonable price points, they are very pocketbook friendly. A great place to start if you're doing a workout wear overhaul. This brand is also available in familiar places like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Revolve Clothing, ect. You can often catch them on great sales on these sites during their respective sale dates.
Last, but certainly not least, I love Nike. I am a Nike girl for life. I have been since I was just a little girl. Nike continues to grow and evolve over the years. They change up their fabrics to cater to how we work out and they keep up with the trends and pay attention to what people like. Nike shoes have stood the test of time. They are my favorite sneaker brand for running and training, hands down. Like Lulu, Nike can provide your every clothing need all in one brand, but the basics are great, so they can mix-and-match with anything you've got. Of course, they are another brand that is easy to find, and generally easy on the wallet. You never have to convince me of Nike's quality, it's plain to see over time. Nike can...Just Do It right!
