Built to move with you, relaxed workout clothes, like this Athleta high-low tank ($39;, are the perfect travel companion. While stiff jeans may be no fun travel in, their more relaxed cousin, the denim track pant ($59.95;, are roomy and refined. Tuck in the front of the top to define your waist and pair with a simple white sneaker ($44; to complete the Americana look. A floral roller ($448; adds a playful twist.

The trademark of personal style is turning expected elements, like a running sneaker ($130; and a maxi dress ($275;, into an unexpected, envy-inducing look. Be that tastemaker and finish off the outfit with a bomber jacket ($79.99; and suitcase ($349; that ties back to the same color family. The result is an ensemble so chic, you won’t want to change when you reach your destination. (Need new workout shoes?

Cool Leggings

One thing successful gym attire and travel outfits have in common: layers. Start with your favorite leggings ($195; and add a graphic tee ($10; to look more soirée-ready and less sweaty in your workout clothes. Add a top layer that matches your pants, like this loose-fitting jacket ($215;, and fancy sneakers ($195; to balance out the fitted leggings. A canvas weekender ($72; is easy to jam into shrinking overhead space—and the bold color makes it something you’re happy to lug around. (Can’t get enough of the color grey?
