With my 2017 word of the year as “intentional,” I am working on making my wardrobe as tailored to my lifestyle as possible. And since I go to the gym almost daily and live in lounge clothes, that means the biggest percentage of my closet belongs to active attire. When it comes to workout clothes, you really can’t have enough! Not only do I wear a large variety of workout styles in my weekly routine (and seasonally too), but I don’t want to have to do laundry more than once a week, so keeping a large rotating stock is ideal. If you’re on the hunt for some new staples like me, thredUP is always worth browsing first!
thredUP is a huge online store that buys and sells high-quality secondhand clothing for women and kids. All of the items are in like-new condition, or even brand new with tags, at up to 90% off retail price. What I love most about it is there is such a huge selection that you can always find what you’re looking for, whether filtering by size, category, or a specific brand. They have tons of brands including Lululemon, Athleta, Patagonia, GAP, J.Crew, LOFT and Anthropologie. If you are curious, because I was, the clothing does not smell like a musty closet. In fact, it smells relatively new. As a smell person I was pleased to discover this! When you are ready to trade in some of your less-worn clothing, thredUP offers a Clean Out Kit that helps simplify the consignment process by letting you fill up a bag and ship it back to them. Reduce, reuse and recycling to thredUP makes Mother Earth happy.
I always get my money’s worth from workout clothes because I wear them to the ground. It’s nice when “money’s worth” stretches a long way, and I got nearly a dozen items for about $150. My order was estimated to save me 66% off of retail value, or $319. Check out the different pieces I got. I put the emphasis on tank tops (which I wear year-round) and hoodies for wearing to the gym and lounging around at home. Thanks to my friend Gaby for taking these photos and making me do funny things during our photoshoot : )
