When we discovered thatoft-denounced sweatpants (opens in new tab) were among Google's most-searched spring 2015 trends, we realized the athleisure movement (opens in new tab) was far from fleeting. And not just for gym-goers or green juice enthusiasts, but, say, Hollywood stars, just going about their day-to-day.

With racks upon racks of designer clothing at their disposal, celebrities choose to run around town in their gym-friendly duds. No desperate scrambles to the car so as to avoid being seen, no quick-change acts, no walks of post-workout shame. Nay—yoga pants for the people, celebrities say!

Here, six pieces of celebrity permission to skip the change of clothes and just, you know, go out.

Lauren is the former beauty editor at Marie Claire. She love to while away the hours at coffee shops, hunt for vintage clothes, and bask in the rough-and-tumble beauty of NYC. She firmly believes that solitude can be a luxury if you’ve got the right soundtrack—that being the Rolling Stones, of course.
