My New Favorite Active Shorts and Tank

I recently discovered the CALIA line at Dick’s Sporting Goods while I was there buying some new soccer cleats for my daughter. I promptly grabbed a pair of CALIA High Rise Step Up Shorts and the CALIA Renew Tank to try on and immediately fell in love with both pieces. They look cute together as a set in the same color or mixed and matched. These pieces are my new activewear obsession and I know you’ll love them too!

Review of the CALIA Activewear Clothing Line

Calia activewear is really high quality and the prices are quite a bit better than lululemon. Not as cheap as Target but the fit seems to be better than Target’s activewear (in my opinion).

Why I Love the Calia Step Up Shorts

The Calia Step Up Shorts have a comfortable high rise, built-in briefs, and a relaxed fit. They are on the shorter side (3 inch inseam) but due to the cut and fit they don’t feel too short to me. I’ve been running in them, lifting weights in them, and have even worn them for tennis clinics and while out on walks with the kids. I’d say these shorts run true to size. I was in the market for new workout shorts because my old lululemon shorts don’t fit anymore (my body is a little curvier than it used to be now that I’m not running longer distances anymore) and these Calia shorts were the perfect comfortable solution!

Review of the Calia Renew Tank

The Renew Tank has a flattering crew neck (my favorite neckline) and the material is really airy and lightweight. It runs true to size. It also comes as a short sleeve tee, a long sleeve tee, and with a collar. I plan to try the other styles as the seasons change. But for now the tank is my part of my summer workout uniform!

As you can see from the real-life photos in this post, I’ve stocked up on a couple different colors of the shorts and tanks and they are on heavy rotation. Definitely try the Step Up Shorts and Renew Tank if you’re looking for some simple pieces to add to your workout wardrobe!
