What you wear can make all the difference between an enjoyable cold-weather run and a bitter battle with the elements. These pieces will keep you a happy camper.
Ace of Base
Made with stretch knit, the North Face women's long-sleeve RDT V-neck ($45) wicks moisture fast to help skin stay dry in the cold.
Frigid days call for a midlayer: fleece-lined Under Armour Cozy Half Zip ($55).
Are you a night runner? Glass beading on the Nike Allover Flash Jacket ($450) keeps you truly illuminated.
The Brooks Ghost 6 GTX ($140) are outfitted with Gore-Tex, so snow won't turn shoes soggy.
Strategically placed compression fabric lets the Adidas Supernova Long Tights ($65) move with you.
The Magic Touch
Touch-screen-friendly tips on the Columbia Precision Touch Gloves ($35) make it easier to work your smartphone without exposing fingers.
Made with 800-fill goose down, the Nike Aeroloft Vest ($180) warms your core without overheating you.
Thumbholes and a high collar on the Moving Comfort Foxie Half Zip ($98) offer coverage to exposed areas.
The ceramic lining in the Under Armour Infrared Tactical Leggings ($55) absorbs and retains body heat.
Although the Gore-Tex-covered New Balance 910s ($135) are for trails, their nubby soles work well on snow, too.
After more disparaging comments from Lululemon's founder, you might be on the hunt for a new go-to brand of athletic wear. If you're not sure where to start, check out these brands that do their best to flatter women of all different shapes and sizes.
Solow is one of our favorite brands these days. Its products are cozy, versatile, and perfect for all-day wear. We're loving these eclon leggings with footholes ($99) that remind us of the stirrup leggings of the '80s.
Moving Comfort says its mission is simple: "add a lift to every woman's workout." All of its products are comfortable, functional, and have flattering lines. I'll be rocking my flex hoodie ($39-$65) all Fall long.
AloOnce you slip into anything by Alo, it's hard to want to take it off. The soft fabrics are made with a yoga practice in mind, and we love that the company exercises eco-friendly practices. Its line is made from environmentally friendly materials, and its offices are housed in a solar-powered building. We're currently coveting the airbrushed leggings ($70) shown here.
Originally hailing from Australia, Lorna Jane aims to offer sporty, sexy, and stylish designs for every woman. This slim-fit sofie excel top ($76) in a bright green hue is a current fave, and we love its line of inspirational tanks.
Zobha's clothes are comfortable, stylish, and perfect for everyday wear. Whether you're heading to Pilates, yoga, or hitting up a high-intensity class, Zobha has options for your workout needs. This zip-up jacket ($115-$160) paired with these velocity capris ($88) is a cute and stylish look with just the right accents of color.
See who else we love after the break!
Who doesn't love a hoodie? You can bundle up in one at home, use it as an extra layer during an outdoor workout, or cover up in one after leaving a yoga class. With so many practical uses, hoodies are perfect for Fall; let's be real, you can never have — or give! — too many of them!

Read on for our healthy must haves for October!

It's perfect for layering after class, and you'll be able to go from breaking a sweat to running your errands in style.
