The Best New Fitness Wear for Women

The new year means a fresh start. Health and wellness resolutions abound — and so does great new fitness wear to get you motivated. Here are your must-haves for winter 2017.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Lululemon Kick the Cold Jacket

Lululemon Kick the Cold Jacket

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.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - 2XU Tights

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.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Crane & Lion Waffle Crew

Crane & Lion Waffle Crew

You’ll want to live in this athleisure piece from Crane & Lion. Not only is the waffle crew warm, but the cut is flattering, and the gray shades it comes in match just about any workout wear. It’s perfect for the gym — and post-gym errands. Available at Crane & Lion, $85.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - North Face Stow and Go Bra

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. Well, this bra was made for that! It’s got a pocket in the middle just for that purpose. Available at The North Face, $45.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Nike Half-Zip Jacket

Nike Dri-Fit Element Sphere Half-Zip

For winter runners this half-zip is a must. The fabric keeps warmth in while still drying sweat quickly, and the ends of the sleeves wrap over your hands to form mittens. There are reflect details for safety, too. Available at Six:02, $85.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Reebok Strappy Sports Bra

Reebok Dance Strappy Bra

Strut your stuff in a bra that draws attention to your shoulders and back. Not only is it fashionable, it’s also functional for low-impact exercise like yoga and Pilates. Available at Six:02, $50.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Under Armour Long-Sleeve Tee

Under Armour Threadborne Train Long-Sleeve Shirt

Layer this loose-fitting polyester top over your favorite tank before heading out for your workout. The super-soft fabric feels good against the skin, and it’s lightweight enough to wear during a warm up or cool down. Plus, it has flatlock seams to prevent chafing. Available at Under Armour, $50.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Outdoor Research Bryn Tank

Outdoor Research Bryn Tank

Adjust the straps of this tank to fit your body. It has a built-in shelf bra that’s perfect for yoga, or you can layer a sports bra underneath for higher-impact activities like running or skipping rope. Available at Outdoor Research, $65.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Montiel Open-Back Tee

Montiel Olivia Open-Back Tee

Drape this loose tee across your shoulders to allow your cute sports bra to show through. It’s great for a gym workout or an outdoor bootcamp class. Plus, the fabric is eco-friendly. Available at Montiel, $48.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Beyond Yoga Bra

Beyond Yoga In the Loop Bra

This medium-support bra provides a bit more coverage in the back, but you’ll love the cutout design that provides some breathability. Remove the cups or keep them. Available at Beyond Yoga, $73.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Onzie New Moon Leggings

Onzie New Moon Leggings

Onzie never fails to have bright, vibrant prints, like that on this top-seller. The linear pattern makes legs look loooong! Available at Onzie, $76.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Lorna Jane Tank

Lorna Jane Spotlight Excel Tank

Ventilation is definitely not an issue with this tank. The open-back design allows for maximum airflow, and the fabric is moisture wicking and quick drying. Wear it to the gym or hot yoga. Available at Lorna Jane, $66.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - C9 Victory Fleece

C9 Victory Fleece 

If you’re just going from your car to class, throw on this fleece instead of a bulk jacket. It’s not just warm, it’s really pretty. We love both the thumbholes and the price point. Available at Target, $40.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Shape Activewear Plie Leggings

Shape Activewear Plie Tights

Wear these tights to barre class and you’ll be the talk of the room. They’re sweat wicking, and you can wrap the adjustable ties around your calves however you want. Available at Shape Activewear, $68.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Specialized Deflect Reflect Jacket

Specialized Deflect Reflect Jacket

Perfect for avid cyclists, this jacket allows you to be seen by cars at dawn or dusk thanks to its superior reflectivity. If you get too warm, zip off the arms and stash them in a pocket. The vest is also perfect for running outside. Available at Specialized, $400.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Helly Hansen Midlayer Jacket

Reflective and moisture-wicking, this midlayer keeping you warm, dry, and safe. Available at Helly Hansen, $160.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - NUX Joggers

Nux Malibu Sweats

Wear these joggers over your workout shorts or capris when it’s cold, or just wear them alone for a weight-lifting session at the gym. You’ll love the way the wide waistband holds the pants in place, so you never have to hike them up. Available at Nux, $87.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Body Language Sportswear Leggings

Body Language Sportswear Helio Leggings

Thanks to the colorblock design, these leggings make your gams look good. Mesh insets behind the knees cool you where you need it most when you start working up a sweat. Available at Body Language Sportswear, $92.

Best Fitness Wear for Women - Merrell Pullover

Merrell Afterglow Pullover

The perfect post-workout top, this oversize French terry pullover couldn’t be more comfortable. You’ll want to keep it on all day long. The boat-cut neckline is universally flattering. Available at Merrell, $80.

Best New Fitness Wear for Women - Style Reform Leggings

Style Reform Blue Melange Leggings

These compression leggings keep you feeling secure during high-impact workouts like running or cross-training. Bonus: You can get them monogrammed (which would be an awesome gift!). Available at Style Reform, $60.
