The gold standard of workout clothes can be had at Lululemon. It’s where celebrities buy the best-fitting, best-looking, most stylish clothes to wear to the gym. It’ll set you back, though. Pants and  workout tops for women and men go for about $100 each. But trust us, they’re worth it.

You’ll be inspired to hit the gym when you look this good once you get there. And all the little details are there: Sleeves that turn into fingerless gloves for chilly runs, flat seams that don’t chafe, covered zippers that never scratch, and wicking materials that keep the sweat away.
