Getting up the motivation to work out can be a challenge on the best of days, but throw in some frigid air and the lure of a warm duvet, and the task becomes downright Herculean. So you really shouldn’t feel bad about bribing yourself with some new cold-weather gym clothes to get yourself out of the house. I mean, whatever works, right?
With winter fast approaching, it’s time to ditch the mesh-paneled capris and cut-out tanks in favor of something a little more seasonally appropriate. Especially if you plan on running outdoors—but even if you just have to schlep ten blocks to your yoga studio at 7 a.m.—you’ll need performance wear that, well, performs, even in the cold. Full-length thermal leggings, down vests, and zip-front hoodies are smart buys this time of year, and puffer jackets and beanies will serve you just as well on your days off.
