Affordable Activewear | 10 Fitness Looks with 17 Pieces All Under $100

I’m happy to report that being back in the groove of working out is still going strong and a big part of that is because of Nordstrom’s fabulous affordable and trendy activewear selection. I remember the days when they only carried a few options, but now they have so many women's affordable activewear lines to choose from! I recently treated myself to a big workout wear haul from Nordstrom and ended up with 10 looks and 17 pieces I absolutely love and look forward to wearing each week, so I wanted to share my latest additions with you all today. PS. all items are under $100 (not including shoes)!

Biker Shorts

I absolutely love biker shorts. Athletic biker shorts, in my opinion, are good to run in because they eliminate even the slightest chance of any upper thigh chafing! From my latest Nordstrom haul, I picked up a pair of Zella ribbed biker shorts for less than $60, and finally grabbed a pair of Girlfriend high waist bike shorts that are seriously some of the best running shorts I have owned! Plus, they’re even more affordable for under $50! If you’re in the market for high waist biker shorts, either of these are a great option.


On this specific Nordstrom trip, I also picked up a few pairs of new high waisted workout leggings. Varley is one of the best workout leggings brands in my opinion—I love how their leggings fit and make me feel! I got two different styles of Varley leggings during this haul—both the Whitley High Waist Ankle leggings and the Nita High Waist leggings, and both fit like a glove and are under $100! 

I’m also so excited to try Girlfriend leggings. One of my good friends and fellow bloggers, EMMASTHING, swears by them and she always has good recommendations, so if she thinks Girlfriend Collective leggings are worth it, they must be! I love that they’re under $70 and offer a perfect amount of compression. Keep an eye out for a more detailed Girlfriend Collective leggings review down the line!

Running Shorts

As far as running shorts go, Nike’s Tempo running shorts have been my go-to for so long. I love the Dri-FITs and the High Cut versions. They’re both simple, $30, and fail-safe in terms of running and working out.

Nordstrom really is a one-stop shop when you’re wondering where to buy activewear online. Every workout top I’m featuring today is also from Nordstrom, as well as the two different pairs of sneakers I have on: the TechLoom Wave Hybrid from APL in the warm silk/pastel melange color, and the TechLoom Tracer Knit Training Shoe in the black/leopard print that I’m obviously obsessed with!

If you’re looking for fitness motivation in the form of new gear, walk, run, or jog to my Nordstrom picks!
