"This specific outfit is perfect to lift weights in because the top (Heroine Sport, $90; is super breathable and the shoes ($80; are great for plyometric jumps in between sets," says celebrity trainer Lacey Stone, who's sculpted the bodies of Amanda Seyfried and Kelly Osbourne. Stone layers with the Michi Abyss Bra ($110; for a mesh-on-mesh look and adds Michi Supernova leggings ($179; for a slash of color.

"I love beautiful, inspirational workout clothes because they motivate me to push myself harder and create the body I feel most comfortable in.

"I'm an avid hiker and love wearing this outfit in Aspen during the summer months," says Carbon38 Co-Founder Caroline Gogolak. The Upside floral leggings ($117; have compression and an easy drawstring so they don't ride down when I'm trekking uphill.

Post hike, I love grabbing lunch in town and will throw on my go-to jacket, The Upside neoprene hoodie ($167;" Gogolak also hits the trail with her Swell water bottle ($45;
