    Whether you've been diligently sculpting your body at the gym since January 1, or you've still got a little winter padding to shed before beach season, we're big believers in the idea that when you look good, you feel good — especially when it comes to getting your sweat on. So, consider us inspired when we first laid eyes on Adidas by Stella McCartney's spring line and saw that workout gear can not only look good, it can even be (gasp!) elegant. Go figure! But let's face it — grinding away on the treadmill wearing baggy sweats and an oversized tee isn't going to keep you inspired to reach your fitness goals when you look in the mirror and see a shapeless gray blob. Call us frivolous, but no matter what your shape or size, looking as stylish when you exercise as you do walking down the street can help keep your confidence and inspiration up, and remind you of your own unique beauty, whether you have the body of your dreams or not. And that's always a good thing. So, we've lined up the most stunning looks from Stella's collection, to show that designer workout wear doesn't have to mean lots of over-designing and sky-high prices (seriously, more than half of her pieces are under $100). Click through to check out some seriously cool metallic windbreakers, beautifully bright leggings, and what might be the sexiest LBBS (little black bathing suit) we've ever seen. Simple, functional, and stylish exercise gear — yep, it really exists!
