How to get Brand-Name Activewear for Less!

at

Have trouble finding fashionable, affordable activewear?

If you’re like me, you love to buy activewear. In the last few years, especially, activewear has really embraced fashion trends. Tops have special cuts and designs, and bottoms can be cropped, full-length, high-waisted, and more. And forget the days of neutrals or one-color items. Women’s activewear racks are loaded with different patterns that are all so eye-catching and beautiful. Unfortunately, some name-brand athletic apparel can be incredibly expensive for the average millennial buyer (Lululemon, anyone?). Some companies have tried the subscription-style type of selling, where you’re charged upwards of $50 monthly even if you don’t choose an outfit to get (no thanks!).

Steeply priced activewear has emerged with a vengeance in recent years. And if you can’t afford Lululemon – sometimes it may feel like you are limited in your choices for fashionable clothes, especially in a modest price range. I will tell you, though, that I have some clothes from Lululemon and what I have is incredible. Both my leggings and my sweatshirt have held up after 8 years of hard use, with barely any sign of wear! That being said, very rarely do I spend the money on it.

So where can you shop for top-name brands or fashionable, affordable activewear for cheap? Read below to find out!

Prices (for Leggings):
$ – Under $15
$$ – $15-$30
$$$ – $30 – $50
$$$$ – $50 – $75
$$$$$ – $75 +

Websites I Check Everyday for Great Deals!

at

Great deals come and go, and often without our even knowing! We don’t want to fill our inbox up with constant e-mails from Kate Spade, Zulily and Groupon – but sometimes it’s the only way we hear about fantastic deals.

Some of these websites will e-mail you almost daily, but it may be far more worth your while to actually visit the website. The e-mails might not show you all they great deals. Instead, they’ll just show one or two “featured” deals. I’ve made a list of sites that will save you money in the long run – but there’s a catch! You have to add them to your bookmarks and check them daily. Checking these sites will only take you about 5-10 minutes unless you get really involved.

I’ll tell you a little rule of thumb I like to implement. If there is something I really want but don’t necessarily need, I like to give myself at least a week to think it over. I’ll start to check these websites, because more than likely at least something similar is going to go on sale. If I still want it by the end of the week, then I probably found a good deal for it! If I don’t still want it then that money stays with me.

It’s all just money in the bank, baby.
