This new-to-town Canadian import’s nylon- , cotton- , and poly-spandex workout duds are sweat-wicking, supportive, and cheap enough to justify buying in bulk. The fast fashion chain’s $16 sports bras maintain their stretch even after months of washing, and the slimming running pants ($29) are half the price of their Gap Body equivalent. And the neutral palette of black, white, and gray is a refreshingly low-key alternative to competing brands’ penchant for neon pink and tribal swirls.
