Zara’s New Activewear Line and Other Affordable Sportswear Collections You Need to Know About

With leggings going for upward of $140 and sports bras hovering around $85 at many of the now cult-like fitness retail meccas (think Bandier, Outdoor Voices, Tory Sport and Sweaty Betty, all of which now have a prominent brick-and-mortar presence), it can seem near impossible to find cheap workout clothes and not blow an entire paycheck on activewear. While it’s hard to resist the temptation of brands like Michi, Alala and Koral, functional and fashionable workout clothes don’t have to be cost prohibitive. In fact, almost all of the major mass retailers now have dedicated fitness brands. 

Here’s a look at affordable activewear collections that won’t leave you scrambling to pay your AMEX bill next month — and won’t cost you performance or style.
