Katie Maguire // Well + Good

When planning a visit to Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign, Rodeo Drive, and the Santa Monica Pier might top the list of tourist attractions.

But when a wellness junkie maps out a trip? Throw in a hike to Runyon Canyon, a visit to Kreationand Cafe Gratitude—and definitely a shopping sesh at Aviator Nation.

With its flagship located on the super-trendy strip of Abbot Kinney, Aviator Nation is the epitome of California cool—not to mention the location of the ultimate LA Instagram backdrop. One part laidback ’70s, one part surfer chick, the brand is known for its uber-cozy loungewear—with its sweatshirts ranking top slot when it comes to LA souvenirs for cool-girl visitors. (So much so that every time they have a pop-up out of state, they sell out immediately.)

While perfect for hygge-ing it up on the couch, the line was never really suited for time on the mat or studio—until now.

The brand has just announced—and released—a performance line of leggings, filled with technical specs to take you from the mat to the beach in style. The collection is on the smaller side for now—although it does include five different styles in three colors ranging from $111 for cropped and to $122 for full length—but the brand has big plans to launch sports bras, shorts, and activewear tanks soon.

Made with two different types of fabrics for either high-intensity or yoga workouts, the pieces are all made in California with locally sourced materials and locally inspired mantras and designs. Meaning while you’re trudging through the snow, you can channel that inner beach bum in style.

Scroll down to check out the cool-girl collection, available online and in-stores today.

Fit Guide
Please note that due to the intense wash and dye processes we use some products  will come out different than others. If you ever get a item that does not fit you perfectly we will gladly exchange it for you as many times as it takes until you are satisfied.
Hoodies and Crewneck Sweatshirts
Aviator Nation hoodies and sweatshirts are unisex. Yes, this means you can steal your boyfriend's hoodie and never think twice about rocking it. It also means that our sizing is unique. In general our hoodies run a bit small for men and a bit big for women.

Unisex Tees

The unisex tees run true to size for women and a bit small for guys, so guys order a size up if you are unsure.


Sweatpants are gender specific. It's not uncommon for women to get men's sweatpants as they have pockets and offer a looser fit.
