    23 Expensive-Looking Workout Basics That Are Surprisingly Affordable

    Stay fit, fashionable, and fiscally-responsible.

    1. An super-supportive sports bra that'll keep your goodies in the jar. It's been praised by people with bigger boobs, so if you fall into that category, this may be your new holy grail.

    2. A pack of printed headbands to keep your hair out of your eyes and your bangs from turning into a curtain of sweat.

    3. A pair of high-waisted leggings that'll keep everything in place. They're made of four-way, sweat-wicking stretch fabric and have a hidden pocket in the waistband where you can store your keys or phone.

    4. An open-back workout shirt with a built-in bra that's secure enough to wear to a HIIT class.

    5. A wireless sports bra that can be completely concealed with a racerback top (though it looks pretty enough to show off).

    6. A pair of retro dolphin shorts that'll make you look like an extra in '80s movie while you do your squat pulses and sit ups.

    7. A set of invisible hair ties that'll stay in place and won't yank at your hair. They're also water-repellent and non-soaking, so go ahead and sweat up a storm.

    8. A crisscross tee that can be worn in and out of the gym. It's made of moisture-wicking fabric, so whether you're powerlifting or dancing up a storm, you won't be dripping wet.

    9. A mesh cut-out sports bra that'll support you through your vinyasa flows in style.

    10. A pair of high-rise, pocketed shorts that'll save you from having to wear a fanny pack or bulky arm band on your run.

    11. Or, if it's a bit too cold to wear shorts, a pair of pocketed leggings that'll help you combat your gym's raging air conditioning system.

    12. A medium-impact sports bra that's all business in the front, party in the back. Like a mullet, but a lot cuter.

    13. A tie-back cotton tank top that'll keep you feeling breezy while you work up a sweat. It's perfect for those days when you snag the spot right in front of the fan in your workout class.

    14. A pair of patterned leggings that'll make you stand out in a sea of black spandex.

    15. A cropped tank top that won't get in your way while you're getting down to business at the gym.

    16. A pullover sports bra with a mesh racerback that works with any look.

    17. A pair of flowy harem pants that a perfect for relaxing in savasana (or in your bed).

    18. A strappy tank top with a built-in bra that has enough support for a B/C cup. It's made of a stretchy, light luon fabric that'll hug your bod but is still comfy as heck.

    19. A pair of cropped leggings with cut out detailing that have not one, but TWO side pockets and a waist pocket.

    20. A V-neck sports bra that's non-padded, non-wired and seam-free, but has the support of a real bra (so you can totally get away with wearing it to the office, too).

    21. A cozy long-sleeve that you can rock in a restorative class and on your way home from the gym.

    22. A palm print gym bag that has an easy access front pocket and adjustable strap.

    23. And finally, a pair of no-slip studio socks that look like little ballet slippers but will save you from accidentally diving into a hardwood floor during barre or pilates.
