As an athletic person, I love having a diversified selection of sportswear in my wardrobe to practice my favorite sports. In my opinion, the best way to get these clothes is to visit your local Salvation Army Thrift Stores regularly. You can find little gems at a reasonable price and good quality.
< FIND #1: Sunice Long-sleeve Activewear Jacket
In the first photo, I’m wearing a blue and white long sleeve activewear jacket from the Canadian brand Sunice. I immediately fell in love with its original patterns when I found it. As you’ve probably already noticed, I love to wear colors and I will not stop myself from doing it when I practice my favorite sports. This top will come in handy both in the summer on cool running days and in the winter as a first layer.
FIND #2: Nike Dri-Fit Shorts & Joe Fresh Sports Top >
My second thrift finds are these two sportswear items I found at the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Saint-Hubert Street in Montreal. When I saw these pink Nike Dri-Fit running shorts, I just couldn’t believe it! I know this model well, since I already owned one in black, so I know it is great for running. The colors are beautiful, it’s practically brand new and fits me like a glove. They have officially become my new favorite running shorts. As for the top, it’s a well-fitted sports top that covers my upper body, while giving proper support. It’s by Joe Fresh and was also in great condition. I really like it because I find that it can be worn on its own as a cami top.
< FIND #3: B-Twin Short-sleeve Cycling Jersey
Finally, my last find is a short-sleeved cycling jersey from B-Twin, a brand owned by Decathlon. I’m so glad I found this jersey, because I didn’t have one yet in my wardrobe. The reflective colors are not only perfect for being seen by drivers, but they look great too! The shirt has a few pockets in the back to hold snacks, keys, and any other gear you need for a bike ride. When I tell you that you can find quality sportswear that are practically new in thrift stores, I am not kidding at all!
