What if you looked in the mirror and liked what you saw, every single time? As if you were bumping into an old friend and so excited to see her (cue hugging, jumping, and OMG-ing). Sophie Gray, the registered holistic nutritionist and personal trainer behind Way of Gray, is on a mission to help women to feel that good when they look in the mirror.

In addition to advocating self-care and self-love (preach), she’s working it from several different angles. Between designing workouts for her fitness programs, maintaining her insanely popular Instagram account (with 400K followers and counting), and coming up with healthy, easy-prep recipes for her YouTube channel, the 22-year-old is constantly breaking a sweat.

The challenge? Dressing the part, on-camera and off. To Sophie—whose quintessential Cali cool girl style has an outdoors-chic edge—it’s all about confidence.

“I think there’s something to be said about feeling confident in the clothes you wear,” she says. “Of course it doesn’t come just from the clothes you’re wearing—but making an effort with your clothes can positively affect your confidence.”

As for her personal style, “I always like to play up a basic black legging with a different flow top and a jean jacket. These pieces make me feel more confident and ready for a workout!”

Want to give your own workout wardrobe a dose of Sophie’s effortless, sporty chic? Here, she shares the five essential pieces to incorporate now.
