If you're not quite ready for fall, maybe a little retail therapy will help ease the pain. This time of year, there are some great workout clothes to make you look and feel your best during your workouts. You'll want solid protection without getting too bulky and you'll want to stock up on everything from tops and jackets to pants and socks. Whatever you need, I've got you covered with these top picks for fall exercise gear for both men and women.
At the beginning of fall, you may be able to get away with shorts if the temperatures are in the 50s or 60s. When they drop below that, though, a light pair of sports pants can protect you from the weather. These loose-fitting running pants are a good choice; they're breathable and light, which will keep you dry without making you too hot. You could even slide on long underwear under these for colder runs or walks. My husband likes them because they fit just right - Not too loose and not too tight.
Finding workout tights or pants that fit well, are flattering and don't cost an arm and a leg is tough. That's one reason I regularly turn to Champion workout clothes. These performance pants are a great overall choice, whether your outside or at the gym. They're semi-fitted — just tight enough that they don't hang off you, but not so tight that you feel self-conscious. They're great for running or walking in cool weather, but they also work quite nicely for things like yoga and strength training. The stripe around the waistband adds a nice detail while flattering the waistline, something I always appreciate.
This long-sleeve top is perfect for outdoor workouts on chilly fall mornings. It's made with Dri-Fit fabric, which means it's lightweight, breathable and comfortable. They've also constructed the shirt so that there's extra room in the shoulders and arms, always something my husband complains about with many long-sleeve shirts. It's also comfortable enough for a spouse to wear while lounging around the house as well. I'm just saying.
This top is perfect for outdoor workouts because it's light and breathable, but it also keeps you warm without adding too much bulk. The fabric is designed to wick away sweat, but what I really love are the reflective details on the arms and chest. Not only will you be safer running in the dark, but those details add a flattering element to this top.
