Whether you’re going to or from the gym, stay warm and stylish in this fleece-lined top layer. You’ll love that there’s fabric between the zipper and your mouth if you choose to zip it all the way up. Plus, there’s a media pocket in the zippered hand pockets. Available at Lululemon, $128.

2XU Mid-Rise Compression Tights

If you’re looking to get the blood flowing back to your muscles and hopefully reduce soreness after a tough workout, try these recovery tights. They have gradient compression in the areas you need it most (thighs, calves, hamstrings) and comfort in the places you want it most (thank you, wide waistband). Available at 2XU, $140.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Beloforte Leggings

Beloforte Sienna Cropped Leggings

If you get super hot when you’re working out, these leggings are for you. Though they may be more suitable for summer than winter, the perforated design allows for max airflow, to help keep you cool whether you’re running or lifting. Available at Beloforte, $135.

The North Face Stow-n-Go IV Bra

Whether you use your phone to listen to music while you run or workout, or you just like having it on you for safety or other reasons, chances are you’ve found yourself stuffing it in your bra.
