The Workout Gear We Can’t Stop Wearing This Month
Los Angeles is one of the biggest health and wellness hubs in the world; there’s a buzzy juice shop on nearly every corner and always a new workout (with a celebrity trainer, natch) popping up. Our editors aren’t immune to the city’s penchant for staying fit, and between us we have yogis, CrossFitters, Runyon Canyon hikers and everything in between. Each month, we’re sharing the gear we absolutely must have. Here, our top picks for November.
"I work out in the morning before work, and I find it extra hard to get out of bed in the darker winter months. (Yes, I realize how soft I am saying the words 'winter' and 'dark' in LA.) This lightweight cashmere sweater looks great over leggings and takes up zero space in my bag once my class gets started."

"I used to be a black-workout-leggings-only person until I discovered Sweaty Betty. The pattern on these guys is so pretty I almost don't want to wear them to the gym—but obviously I do and I've gotten a ton of compliments. The material is lightweight and compressive, which means I don't get too sweaty and my butt looks good."
