Admittedly, we have a hard time getting motivated to get our sweat on, but these six athletic-chic pieces make those workouts a little more manageable. We took cues from frequently-photographed gym-goer Nicole Richie, whose huge Balenciaga bag and Ray-Ban sunglasses turn frumpy leggings urban-glam.

To recreate her look, pair black capri leggings with a hoodie, leather jacket, shades, and your post-workout beverage of choice. Nicole favors Pressed Juicery's fresh-squeezed juice, while we love James Duigan's beauty-boosting supplements, a blend of fiber and protein that wards off post-gym cravings.
