Most of my working out involves a swimsuit, cap and goggles.
I do wear specific workout clothes when I do Zumba or yoga. a top that wicks and either shorts for Zumba or yoga pants. I also have Zumba specific shoes.
Part of wearing special clothes is practical; I sweat a lot and a sports-specific top that wicks is more comfortable. And part of wearing special clothes is mental. I look thinner and more fit in a fitted workout shirt than I do in an old tee-shirt, and because I have bright, fun colors, I feel happy when I put my workout gear on. Changing into my workout gear sets me up for a mind shift so that I can focus on working out and not let my mind wander to other things.

Whatever is comfortable

I work from home so the clothing part isn't the issue. It's remembering to not get lost in my work and have the day evaporate!

Yes I wear Kangoo Jumps when I walk (cushions joints etc, supports ankles and doubles calories burned). Otherwise I wear whatever clothes the weather dictates.
For road biking I wear bike shorts/pants, jersey and bike shoes with cleats to fit clipless pedals and protective helmet.

I have special clothes for when I go walking outside. Indoor exercise I wear t-shirt and shorts or pants
They aren't expensive or fancy, but I do have performance shirts/capris that I wear as well as sports bras. I sweat like a pig and need the wicking power, so to speak. I also have loose skin that bothers me when I run or do high intensity workouts, so I need some compression as well.
Now that I'm getting more into running, I'm considering investing in some good compression shorts/tops.
If you are comfortable with what you wear now, I wouldn't invest any more into special clothes.

Yes, especially if I'm doing cardio or am going to be sweating a lot. I personally find it motivating to have fun clothes that I own just for wearing during my workouts (plus I need the extra support of a good sports bra for cardio), so for me it's worth the investment. Others might not find it worth the money.

I have clothes I pretty much specifically wear for Pilates, but only because they are more closely fitted to my body than what I would normally wear. I just wear regular shirts and yoga pants. Mine are kind of expensive because anytime you buy a women's tall or long anything it costs an arm and a leg more. My other main form of exercise is swimming, and I do spend quite a bit on suits, but again, it's hard to find suits (even tankinis) that are long enough for me. So once I find something that works I tend to stick with it even if it costs more.
I don't really have many clothes that are only used for exercise though the ones I wear are appropriate for the exercise I do. I do have some sports bras and it is nice to use those so my regular bras don't get all sweaty. I do have shoes that I only use for exercise.
I think if you are comfortable in a tshirt and shorts when you exercise then you don't need to spend more money.

I wear mostly cheap stuff from Old Navy when I work out, just T-shirts and leggings. But I did invest in two expensive sports bras. I wear size 40J, and good support there is NOT optional. And I invested in decent walking shoes and trainers because my feet are flat, and I am prone to shin splints, heel spurs, and severe arch pain.
Yes, I wear wicked fabric for all my work out clothes.

I wear a loose fitting cotton short and a regular tee shirt in the summer, in the winter I wear a long sleeve tee shirt, yoga pants and a down vest. I wear the same clothes everyday until laundry day. I haven't spent any big money on my workout clothes but one day I will, they sure are cute.
Depends on the workout. I have special running clothes that I use, I invested in a good sports bra and a good pair of running shoes and I wear clothing especially for running. Working out at home I wear whatever is comfortable.

idk... it may depend on what you do, to workout. I started by just wearing any old tee and shorts that I already owned. I do some brisk walking with hills, for cardio. And the cold clammy sweaty cotton t-shirt got to me. So I used some "performance" shirts as a reward for working out. But I bought them when they were on sale for cheap at Kohl's. Then I needed a jacket too. Again, a reward for working out & purchased on sale. And my regular bras just weren't cutting it for the workouts. I'd sweat and need to wash the bra after every use. If I was going to buy some more bras, might as well get some sports bras. Then I needed long sleeved (performance) shirts for the wintertime. Those I got at Walmart for 6 bucks on Black Friday. Gradually over a period of time, I've accumulated a whole pile of workout clothes.
