Welcome to Racked's Fitness Week: five days of workout coverage, so that you can start your New Year's resolutions off right.

Unless you're blessed to live in a place that boasts its own fitness center, chances are you spend quite a bit of time driving to and from your daily obligations. All this shuttling about leaves little time for a wardrobe change, which makes it all the more easier to ditch any previously planned engagements—like say, the gym, or post-work happy hour, or that way overdue oil change that can wait another week.

Our car-centric city's equally obsessed with sweating it out as it is with style, and nobody knows this better than Hottest Trainer alumn Katie Johnson, whose luxury fitness site Carbon38 serves up fashionable gym gear alongside need-to-know health tips. We asked her to share a few of her wear-all-day workout faves that can go from barre class to the bar and everywhere else. While we're not about to suggest ditching the shower after a seriously major sweat sesh, do remember that baby wipes are your freshening-up friends.

With that, check out 11 ace LA-designed options—handpicked by us and Johnson—that'll help you avoid the backseat changing room sitch.
