With cooler weather here to stay, it’s time for a workout wardrobe refresh. Layer up and look your best every time you hit the studio with these on-trend picks for every style, budget and occasion. We’ve rounded up the top pieces that will keep you warm without limiting your movement and take you from the studio to the street.
1. A sharp tech jacket
No matter your sport, a lightweight yet warm and functional zip-up is a must for winter workouts. This jacket by Outdoor Voices ($95) fits the bill perfectly. With its smooth feel and slim fit, it checks all the including thumbholes, four-way stretch, sweat-wicking and front-zipper pockets. It’s bulky enough to layer over a workout tank on warmer days, yet still sleek enough to wear under a down vest when the temperatures really start to dip. Gearing up to run a 10k? This will keep you comfortably warm and can be tied around your waist if needed.
2. Flattering, wear-with-everything leggings
These are the ones you’ll be rummaging through your drawers to find. The Signature Tight by DYI ($88) includes a high waistband custom designed to hold you in without restricting movement. Whether you wear them to the studio, while you travel, when you go out or during your next Netflix binge, you’ll be ready to argue against anyone who tries to tell you that leggings aren’t pants.
3. A colorful, jungle-inspired sweatshirt
Winter blues, be gone! A nod to the 80s, this bright, tropical Adidas sweatshirt ($65) makes a fun statement and is guaranteed to brighten up even the dreariest winter day. The sporty pullover was inspired by the Brazilian jungle, and its funky bird print is pretty much exactly what your winter athleisure wardrobe is lacking.
4. This cropped, millennial pink hoodie
Millennial pink is here to stay, and this cropped hoodie from Forever 21 ($20) carries the trend brilliantly into winter. Fun details like the “Offline” graphic, dropped long sleeves, adjustable drawstring hem and boxy silhouette make this hoodie the ideal pick for the athletic girly-girl. Layer under an acid-wash denim jacket once you leave the gym to complete the look.
5. A cool poncho
For a more timeless and minimalist winter workout style, this knit poncho by The North Face ($99) is a warm and cozy option to pair with your favorite leggings. It comes in three versatile colors, and features a high/low hem and kangaroo pocket that’s perfect for carrying your cell phone, earbuds, keys and other essentials.
6. Sporty cigarette pants
These cigarette pants ($60) are so fresh, they’ll make you want to skip the workout altogether. A shrunken take on Adidas’ classic warm-ups, these are giving us all the 90s athleisure feels. For a full winter workout ensemble, pair with a white sports bra and a black zip-up.
7. A long sleeve crop top
Long live the crop top, even when the temperatures drop. Of course, Lululemon has us cool and covered with this mesh number ($59), which stays breathable while you sweat but offers enough coverage to wear into winter. We can already picture this top with some killer high-waisted leggings for the ultimate winter workout uniform.
8. Palm print leggings
Seriously, though, who doesn’t love a good palm print? These comfortable tropical leggings by CHRLDR ($72) offer maximum support and warmth, and will have you dreaming about your next winter getaway, even if you’re marathon training in the snow. Don’t normally go for loud prints and patterns? These are a bit more understated, with a contrasting black background.
9. This cowlneck tank
Layering is key for your winter workout wardrobe, and this top by Maaji ($78) is your best bet for when you need a more insulating sleeveless tank. The deep v-cuts down the sides let your favorite sports bra peek through, and the pockets and contrasting seams give it some added interest.
10. A cozy letterman jacket
Nike totally nailed it with this super-soft fleece letterman jacket ($140), which is an immediate gym staple. This perfectly retro trend is borrowed from the boys, and with color-blocked black, white and gray, it will go with almost anything in your closet. Win-win.
