Printed leggings have become a staple in almost every star’s workout wardrobe, but there’s something about the supermodel’s animal-printed pair (teamed with a white Pitusa tank and some custom Soludos) that really gets us jazzed about hitting the mat – stat!

Bored of your black-and-white basics? Check out Kelly’s latest workout outfit: a graphic tank and checkered Zobha leggings with fun pops of (neon) color throughout.

Supermodels aren’t always expected to don the typical “off-duty” uniform of jeans and a leather jacket. They re also sometimes seen in the typical off-duty workout look: a gray top, capri leggings and pretty pink sneakers.

Matching your yoga top to your spandex leggings isn’t a style necessity, but Melanie’s look (a blue-on-blue ensemble) shows that matchy-matchy can make your workout outfit twice as fun.

Hailey proves that your typical get-your-sweat-on ensemble doesn’t have to be blah in a pair of black-and-white printed leggings, bright red Nikes and a chic cropped tank. Her oversized aviators amp up the cool factor.

The TV personality’s all-black look is a chic choice for the gym (and keeps her low-key when sneaking by the paparazzi). Bright-blue tennies give the outfit a little exclamation point.

Printed leggings are an easy way to have a little fun with your gym ensemble, but the Twilight star takes it up a notch with her highlighter-yellow graphic tank.

What better way to dress up a monochromatic workout ensemble (her pants are Sweaty Betty, by the way) than with an adorable bright-pink baseball cap and matching sneaks? adds a fun pop of color, plus protection from the sun, to her otherwise basic black.

“A squad that sweats together slays together” must be the leggy ladies’s motto, amirite? The 1989 singer, who has allegedly insured her legs for $40 million (yes, you read that correctly), opts for pair of itty-bitty shorts and a tank while on a hike with bestie supermodel Gigi (aka Slay-Z).

Looks like stopped for a much-needed bite after hitting the gym in black-and-white pair of Nike leggings, white tee and a denim topper. But with an outfit as cute as hers, we re wondering why the star didn’t just head to brunch after her sweat sesh – something we’re totally guilty of.

The Fabletics proves not every workout requires a pair of sneaks. But wedges? We totally weren’t expecting that. Hey, she did say she wanted her designs to go from the treadmill to mai tais!

We’re sure being a supermodel takes some work, but this pic of the retired runway looking as if she’s come from a high-fashion photo shoot rather than a sweaty sesh of SoulCycle makes it a little hard to believe.

Love hiking like ? Then you’ll need a wardrobe that’s all about the climb. Take a style cue from the star and opt for a brightly colored top to stand out – even when you’re deep in the canyons.

You already know that ’90s style is back in a big way, but until this moment, you probably didn t realize that ’90s workout style was making a resurgence, too. channels TLC and reps the U.S.A. in sporty spandex separates. (And by the way, yes, she wore these on a Thursday. How #TBT of her.)

We wonder if “All Black Everything” is on her workout playlist or if its just her fitness apparel M.O.? takes her love of sleek, body-skimming neutrals (she’s wearing Live The Process leggings) to the gym and reminds us that a Little Black anything is always chic.

When you’re a Victoria’s Secret Angel, we’d argue that your work sort of counts as play, too. Regardless, we love the message on the model’s graphic tank, which she pairs with Pheel’s Go-2-Pant (a celeb fave).

Workout pants are becoming the new jeans, which is why we love that Nikki opts for a fun printed pair (they’re Sweaty Betty) rather than basic black. Wonder if her boyfriend Ian Somerhalder – wearing a very baggy pair of sweats – is jealous (he should be).

She makes her athletic leggings and ASICS sneaks feel Sunday Funday-ready by throwing on an off-the-shoudler sweater, a printed scarf and glam shades. Of course, a huge quilted Chanel purse in place of gym bag helps, too.

Yes, we know didn’t break a sweat in her floral separates, metallic purple pumps and freshly blown-out hair, but we have to point out that this is what the woman looks like immediately after working out (she’s walking out of her N.Y.C. gym in this photo – seriously).
