The Best Under-$50 Activewear Money Can Buy

Karlie Kloss workout



There's no denying that a cool outfit is often all the motivation you need to hit the gym or spin class. But when it comes to whether you'd rather spend a big chunk of your clothing budget on a sports bra and leggings or a new pair of ankle boots, it's safe to assume that most fashion girls would take the ankle boots. Or even better, they'd rather buy both the workout outfit and the ankle boots. Which is where we come in.

There's a lot of affordable activewear on the market, but not all of it is workout motivation–level chic. So we took it upon ourselves to sift through the internet's affordable activewear offerings, focusing on some of our favorite brands for that category, to bring you a slew of the best under-$50 options. Whether you're partial to running, barre, Pilates, Spin, boxing, etc., there are stylish options to be found for every type of workout, so pick your poison.
