As at work at home blogger, I’m guilty of putting on activewear or athleisure clothes in the morning and then never going near the gym. I do love to live in these clothes, even if the most exercise I get on any given day is walking the dog.

Unfortunately, it can also be really expensive, with the latest and greatest tops and leggings coming in at $100 a pop or more.

Here are some trendy yet more affordable options that were recently featured on The Today Shop website and handpicked by their style editors. All photo credits via The Today Show.

Stylish Affordable Activewear – Athleisure Clothes to Live In!

Reebok 2-in-1 Short, $40, Reebok

Reebok

The body-hugging underlayer of these shorts from Reebok provides coverage and muscle support, while the loose, lightweight cover and Speedwick technology work to keep you cool. Unlike some other shorts, the waistband is also super comfortable so you don’t need to worry about it agitating your skin while on the move (and this peach hue is so cool).

Nike Revolution 3, $45, Zappos

Zappos

Cool and comfortable? That’s exactly what these Nike running shoes are. And the bright pink accents add a fun touch to these kicks. They usually retail for $60, but you can get them on sale for $45.

Lululemon Free to Be Zen Bra, $48, Lululemon

Lululemon

This strap-happy sports bra from Lululemon is so cute that you won’t want to cover it (may we suggest an open or peekaboo back?). And there’s more than meets the eye. It’s designed with added Lycra for greater stretch and shape retention, and even includes pockets for removing or re-inserting the cups for customized support.

 

Forever 21 Active Cutout Leggings, $23, Forever 21

Forever 21

Perfect for barre class or everyday wear, these leggings from Forever 21 feature crisscross cutouts at the calves for increased airflow. There’s also a hidden back pocket for carrying your essentials in (secret) style. It’s hard to believe they’re under $23.

New Balance Accelerate 2.5 Inch Printed Short, $35, New Balance

New Balance

This bright idea of a short from New Balance not only looks cool (we love the neon detailing), but feels cool. The NB dry technology works to wick away moisture to keep you from overheating during those high intervals.

 

C9 by Champion Women’s Poise Performance Athletic Shoes, $35, Target

Target

These sneaks from Target’s C9 by Champion line offer the same support and comfort as some higher-end athletic brands for a fraction of the price. We especially love the combination of the bright coral shade and honeycomb pattern on this style.

Nike Classic Kaleidoscope Sports Bra, $40, Nordstrom

Nordstrom

This kaleidoscope-print sports bra from Nike oozes fun. Throw it on for your favorite hip-hop class to show fellow classmates you mean serious business (when it comes to having fun). Like most of the other items featured in this gallery, this bra features special technology so you don’t need to worry about excessive sweat getting in the way of your moves.

Gap Medium Impact Strappy Shelf Tank, $35-$45, Gap

Gap

This new tank from Gap features mesh panels and a special “GDry” moisture-wicking technology for staying cool, four-way stretch for maximum mobility and a reflective logo for increased visibility at night. Plus, it comes with built-in support so it’s like a shirt and sports bra in one (saving you both money and space). We suggest scooping up several of the seven shades for days when you need to get out the door fast.

Front Runner High Waist Leggings, $34, Nordstrom

Nordstrom

These striped leggings will add some pizzazz to your workout wear. The mid rise waistband creates an extra-slimming effect, and you may find yourself reaching for them on days when you’re not breaking a sweat. They usually retail for $52, but you can get them for $34.

Athleta Essence Tie Back Tank, $44, Athleta

Athleta

This breezy top from Athleta is like two tanks in one. It can be worn as is for loose, longer coverage, or tied up in back for a tighter fit. Scoop one (or a few) up for your favorite yoga class, and switch up the style to keep everyone guessing.
