Leggings are probably the most comfortable pants in the entire world — aside from your pajama pants. Once you find a pair of stylish (affordable) workout leggings you love, you can wear them anywhere from the gym to the street. For me, that pretty much means stocking my closet with stylish leggings; and when the workout leggings are $50 or less, why wouldn't I?
I love my spin classes, so I've amassed plenty of affordable leggings that look great over time. I dug through Shop Spring (a shopping site with more than 900 curated brands) in order to find 25 cool styles under $50 that would ship for free (the whole site ships for free: you're welcome). With the round-up of awesome workout pants I built, you can be bold and rock some crazy patterned leggings, or you can be a bit more subtle with your style and rock some basic black leggings featuring some awesome mesh inserts or cutouts.
Wear them to the gym, to run errands, while traveling, or even with some booties for happy hour — and you're going to be good to go. No one will ever be able to tell that you got them for $50 or less.
