Activewear can be expensive, and sometimes it’s worth the investment. But because we’re constantly washing our athletic clothes, they can lose shape and color more quickly than our regular wardrobe. Sale season is the perfect time to stock up on those tops and leggings and bras that will serve you for 50 miles around the track (or from the treadmill to the ice cream in the freezer. Your workout is your business).
