i just got back from the gym. I wore a pair of running shorts from old navy that cost $10 and a ratty old tank top from I don't know where. my clothes were comfy enough to work out in and ratty enough that I don't mind sweating on them.
most of the girls I saw at the gym were wearing vs pink, lululemon, hollister, or juicy couture clothes. why would you spend $60-$200 on an outfit you're just going to sweat in?
girls in my dorm would wear these clothes when we were hanging out in each others rooms and studying and that makes sense because you're still kinda in public (surrounded by 50 or more girls anyway) so you want to look cute, but when it comes to sleeping or working out, why ruin such expensive clothes?

I wear my Juicy sweats and yoga VS pants a lot to the gym. Not as a fashion thing but because they were made for working out and they're comfy as well as more helpful with moving around. I like to wear sweat pants when I run because I sweat more but I've found that a lot of the usual sweat pants create a lot more heat than I would like. The Juicy and VS yoga pants allow my legs to breath a little more. Not all Juicy clothes are expensive too, you can find a lot of things at TJ maxx or Marshalls for a lot cheaper. And VS isn't all that expensive either.
As for the girls who wear makeup and have their hair down up who come into the gym, that's a different story lol.1
