Have you ever had to change out of one pair of cozy-but-not-sweat-ready leggings and into another for your actual workout? (No judgment, we’ve all been there.)

But if you’re going from an a.m. stint at SoulCycle to grab a post-sweat acai bowl with your friends, the quick change is far from ideal. In fact, wouldn’t you prefer finding something that somehow straddled the line between “Yes, I’m training for a marathon” and “Yes, I love my avocado toast”?

Lucy Activewear sure thinks so. The California-based athleisure line, founded in 1999 by former Nike execs for, in their words, “women who like to move,” is all about high-performance activewear that you’ll never want to take off. “Our first filter to design is performance, meaning that all the fabrics are wicking or have high mobility,” says Lucy’s creative director, Keryn Francisco.

But it’s not only about the tech specs; since her debut collection for the brand last year, Francisco’s quickly pushed Lucy to the frontlines of fitness fashion (a place the technical-minded line hasn’t always been). For proof, look no further than the spring ’16 collection: It’s practicality put to very stylish use, from a minimalist-chic funnel collar for added warmth on still-chilly March runs to a drawstring cuff on dance cardio-perfect printed pants.

And yes, there’s even a pair of workout-ready culottes that will help you fit right in whether you’re lining up at the barre or testing out the poké bowl sensation.

Check them out, along with more stand-outs from Lucy’s spring ’16 collection, below.
