The brand mostly sells loungewear, which for many people also translates to athletic gear. Most of the time, I workout in a filthy old band shirt and the same leggings I binge watch television shows in, but I can appreciate the way some people look sort of cute and put together at the gym. Those people who look good at the gym probably aren’t wearing any of the following clothes from PINK.
I’d be embarrassed to wear any of these because I’m a grown up lady and not Workout Barbie:
Bling Perfect Zip Hoodie $79.50. The copywriter trying to sell this sweatshirt says it’s the “best. fit. ever.” and it is exactly the opposite of what I look for in a hoodie which would be a “gigantic. cozy. cocoon. without. sequins. or. brand. names. or. meaningless. numbers.”
New! Crewneck Tee $49.50. For a mere $50 you can wear a graphic tee featuring an idiotic saying so that everyone knows you are
tacky interesting and fun.
New! Crew $49.50. No one from California actually refers to the state as Cali.
Flare Pant $39.50. Is it just me or are low rise sweats kind of impractical? Also, brightly colored sweats with suggestive words that double as brand names plastered on the tushie were all sorts of wrong even in the early oughts before they were dated.
Velour Zip Up Hoodie $69.50-$79.50. This sweatshirt features a sequined hood…a goddamn sequined hood and the brand name emblazoned four times on the back. It would be the perfect hoodie for any of the Real Housewives with arrested development and garish taste.
Am I a total jerk off? I know there’s no accounting for taste, but c’mon. If you want brightly colored workout clothes, you can get them without the heinous price tag.
