What if you could tell your favorite designer exactly what type of workout clothes you wanted to wear — and voila: your dream leggings become a reality. Well, that's pretty much what's happening at Nordstrom. On May 20, the retailer's in-house line Zella is releasing the Community Collection, which was created by Nordstrom customers based in Los Angeles.

The label used top search queries as feedback to produce a seven-piece collection sized XXS through XXL. The roster includes true high-waisted leggings with built-in pockets that are roomy enough to hold a cell phone, credit card, or keys. There are also loose-fitting shorts, soft hoodies, long-sleeve tees with cutouts, and hiking socks, as well as accessories like a perforated hat and an on-trend fanny pack.

The Zella Community Collection is also completely created from recycled materials. It's all still affordable, with prices starting at $39 and topping out at $79. Our favorites are below.
