Knock it Off: Activewear & Athleisure

Welcome to another installment in our new-ish blog series: Knock it Off.  Knock it Off refers to the hunt of finding an item high ticket item that is “knocked off” with similar appearance and quality, at a fraction of the price. In this series, we will examine apparel, cosmetics, home decor, and much more.  Today, we are talking athleisure.

Either you are in one of two shopping camps: you get what you pay for, or why pay more?  Logic tells me that spending less on items used for working out makes total sense.  But that’s just me, some people like to use the gym as their own personal runway.  Either way, athleisure is a HUGE market right now.  You can spend a HUGE amount of money on workout pieces if you want to…or not.

Here are some great “knockoff” pieces available now.  Check it out!

Many athleisure items have VERY specific laundering instructions, and should be washed on the “gentle” cycles.  The Boottique Lingerie Care Kit can help extend the life of your sports bras and delicate workout tops.
