The best winter style differs greatly from those summer’s exercise staples. Yes, sports bras and leggings remain part of the equation, but colder winter weather calls for more insulating items to keep you warm and comfortable. We’re talking about thicker tights, down-filled vests, long-sleeve tops, thermal jackets, and weatherproof sneakers, plus winter workout accessories like hats, gloves, neck warmers, and tall socks. They’re just as important as a warm top layer or fleece-lined leggings that trap heat in where it escapes the fastest. Trust, the moment you attempt a winter workout without the right apparel, you realize just how essential it is.

While winter style is still a priority when choosing cold-weather workout attire, layering and fabrics are also key to shopping for the best winter workout gear. No matter if you’re a runner, cycler, or trail walker, certain materials like wool, wind-resistant nylon, and fleece lining with moisture-wicking abilities are designed to withstand the elements and set you up for your best performance. Likewise for the number of layers you wear—just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you need seven layers to get through a workout, but rather the right two or three to ensure a comfortable sweat.
