There’s nothing quite as cozy as workout clothes—you know, your favorite yoga leggings or Sherpa hoodie you wear to and from the gym, but what if they were chic enough to pull off outside yoga class? Luckily, your go-to pieces to sweat in at the gym are stylish enough to wear to the office, happy hour, or running around town.

Try updating your walking shoes to something with more grip, like a hiking boot (seriously). They come in candy colors you’ll crave—these aren’t the hiking boots you’ll find at the outdoor store. Or, give your street sneakers a sleek update with embellished stripes or cozy fabrics to keep your feet warm all day.

No one will know the difference between your performance wear and work wardrobe when you wear a fleece-lined wrap skirt to the office that looks just as chic as your pencil skirt. Swap out your go-to moto jacket for one that’s breathable and edgy at the same time. You can also make yourself shine with metallic pieces or a fresh version of the tracksuit you wore in college. We’ve rounded up an all-star group of workout clothes for women that work for whatever or wherever you are.
