Workout Pieces That Are Almost Too Chic For The Gym

Workout clothes are pretty much the best. We love our trusty pair of sneakers, our black leggings that go with absolutely everything and our sweat-proof tank tops. But what happens when you want to take your spring exercise look beyond the gym? It girls like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin have made quite the case for chic athletic wear, and, in the name of comfort, we’re still looking to ride that train through the rest of the year. Ahead, find everything from stylish (and useful) gym bags to sporty sneakers that can—and will—take you from barre class to the actual bar for happy hour.
