Fitness Meets Fashion: Ellie Activewear

Lately, I’ve been in the gym at least 5 times a week.  Going this often has created a serious need for more workout apparel.

I’m particular about what I want in workout clothing.  Is it too much to ask for workout apparel that’s stretchy, breathable, moisture wicking, lightweight, fashionable, and affordable?  I was beginning to think that my wants were unreasonable, but then I met Ellie, an online fitness apparel brand that marries fashion-forward looks with high-tech performance activewear at affordable prices.

Every month, Ellie launches a brand new, 24-piece collection, which includes 16 tops and 8 bottoms.  The selections are carefully curated to meet various style and fitness needs.  The Ellie style quiz helps you find your perfect Ellie activewear.  As a dance fitness instructor and student, I was directed to the EllieMesh pieces, particularly the Vixen racerback that features a mesh draping and a double lined bra for breathability and support.

This top is amazing for dance fitness.  It kept me cool and feeling like I looked cool.
The draping is perfect because I prefer tops that aren’t clingy around my midsection.
I’m wearing a size small.  

I’m wearing a size M in the capri legging.  Since the Ellie pieces are very stretchy,
though, a size S would be a better fit for my dance needs.  I did have to pull the pants up
a few times in Zumba.

I prefer to workout in all black, but Ellie does offers colorful pieces as well.  

The Ellie apparel is so stylish that there’s no need to change before running errands
after the gym.

If you’re also on the quest for your perfect fitness apparel, check out Ellie.  You have the option of shopping single items or joining the Fit Fashionista Club and choosing any two items for $49.95/month.  Shipping and return shipping is always free.

    I want that top–too cute! It sure is hard to find affordable and trendy workout clothing. I'm going to have to check Ellie out.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Definitely check out Ellie. This top style was featured in the last two months (one of them was navy and white) and it kept selling out quickly! My guess is that they'll bring it back since it's been so popular.

      If you try the line, let me know what you think, Mandi. Thanks for stopping by.

      Nah, Nylse. The coverup is an old Adrienne Vittadini cardigan that I purchased in Marshalls several years ago.

    I've had my eye on that top for awhile now for dance as well! I will definitely be picking it up now.
