As more brands (and celebrities) break into the activewear world, it’s getting harder and harder to justify splurging on a new piece—why spend your paycheck on one item when there are so many cute budget pieces?

But Bandier’s new collab with Cushnie et Ochs is officially giving you a reason to spend upwards of $200 on a pair of workout tights.

What makes it different? For one thing, the retailer recruited a buzzy design duo with serious fashion chops and an impressive list of sweat-loving clients (everyone from Karlie Kloss to Michelle Obama has been spotted wearing Cushnie et Ochs’ strap-happy pieces).

Which means that the edgy, all-black, 10-piece collection (comprised of three leggings, three sports bras, two tank tops, a track pant, and a jacket) would look as natural at the gym as it would on the runway. And while the stylish women behind the label, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, wanted to make their capsule collection as technical as possible, they also designed garments that could seamlessly be paired with their equally cool—but way more expensive—ready-to-wear pieces.

So yes, their Bandier collection starts at $144 for a mesh-paneled tank—and tops out at $215 for a pair of slashed-to-the-thigh leggings—but when compared to their very similar-looking fashion designs (think the same cool-girl cutout pieces, but for $600), the capsule collection is actually a serious bargain.

Scroll down to see the full collection below and let us know—would you shell out the bucks for these active fashion pieces?
