The Winter Activewear Trend That'll Make Chilly Workouts Feel Tolerable

Whether you'd much prefer to hibernate during the winter months or genuinely enjoy pounding the snowy pavement, here's the universal truth: When working out during the colder months, properly bundling up is a must if you want to avoid injury. It's called "warming up" for a reason; wearing layers during a freezing jog is as crucial to preventing muscle strain as stretching beforehand.

Fortunately, one of our favorite rising activewear trends is as cozy as it is stylish. This season, we're seeing fleece-adorned everything, from pullovers to oversize jackets to sandals. Consider this your invitation to hygge-ify your wardrobe—and make your winter workouts all the more enjoyable in the process. Shop our favorite fleece pieces below.

A word to the wise: Choose a fleece jacket that's warm enough for wintry hikes but cute enough for a night out.

Is there anything better than slipping your freezing legs into fleece-lined sweats? Bonus: The high waist on this Champion pair is incredibly flattering.
