Mustering up the motivation to head to the gym, a group class, or even set out on a brisk jog gets more difficult as the weather gets colder. Warm, sunny mornings make you want to get up and go, while dark and stormy afternoons are often best spent cozied up in bed. If you're ready to hit the ground running with an exercise-centric new year's resolution while staying true to your vow to spend less in 2019, purchasing Camila Mendes' affordable workout leggings are a great place to start.
The Riverdale actor was photographed while grabbing coffee in Vancouver on Jan. 8 wearing a pair of high-waisted compression leggings by Old Navy. The sleek bottoms feature purple and pink stripes and an extra-thick waist band. While Mendes is often seen sporting high-end brands like Miu Miu and Etro, these bargain-conscious workout pants cost just under $30.
She kept the look casual and stylish by pairing her leggings with a cropped white t-shirt, a salmon-colored puffer jacket by Madewell, and sporty, white sneakers. This ready-for-anything ensemble is perfect for the gym, staying comfortable for a day filled with errand running, or even a weekend lunch date. The best part? You'll look totally put-together without overspending.
It's possible that your closet is filled to the brim with black leggings of all types. While there can be variety within your basic workout gear, adding a pop of color makes exercising that much more exciting. Plus, you'll be able to wear them far beyond the walls of your local gym.
Create your own Mendes-inspired look by partnering your printed leggings with a solid t-shirt and a vibrant puffer, or try something new by layering them with an oversized hoodie and a denim jacket. No need to stress over choosing the best color way, because these prices may inspire you to add multiple pairs to your wardrobe.
