From wacky workouts to Tinseltown's top trails, LA fitness fiends have more than enough options to mix up their sweat seshes. But when a change of scenery just isn't enough to get you pumped, a change of outfit can do the trick, no? On that note, meet Koral Activewear, a new line of women's workout gear inspired by Brazil but bred in LA. (We hear Fergie's already a fan!)
Created by Brazilian designer Ilana Kugel, the brand—not to be confused with Koral denim—takes a hi-tech approach to keeping gym rats stench-free and stylish using their exclusive moisture-wick fabric and super-soft, form-flattering pieces. Kugel tells us it's all designed with performance in mind: Expect running pants with a core-warming waistband, a running jacket with built-in convertible gloves and one seriously comfy bodycon jumpsuit, perfect for nailing that plank pose sans the wardrobe worries.
Priced from $58 to $244, select pieces from the line are available online at fashionable fitness fave Carbon 38 here and Shopbop here. After the jump, check out a few more stylish standouts from the brand's spring/summer line.
