22 Workout Essentials That Slay for Less Than $75
Once summer has come and gone, getting your fitness on erryday can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you’re the type that likes to get active outdoors. Cooler temps and dwindling daylight can totally throw a wrench in your workout routine — getting up when it’s dark or heading outdoors when you’re warm and cozy inside (with a Netflix marathon on, no less) is a trying task. To break down those lazy girl barriers and get your butt back in top gear, a little extra motivation is definitely in order — and we’ll take ours in the form of stylish fitness duds — high-octane pullovers, strappy sports bras and chic sneakers. If the bright hues and It-girl details don’t inspire you to get your sweat on, we don’t know what will.

3. Victoria Sport The Everywhere Capri ($50): Minimalists, rejoice! Scene-stealing workout duds don’t have to involve neon or too-sassy graphics.

14. Silence + Noise Adeline Satin Track Pant ($69): These cropped bottoms pull serious double duty, doing your style proud both in and outside the studio.
