If you're working out more these days, you probably need to stock up on some new activewear. One essential is a pair of leggings, of course. And while there are so many options on the market, I suggest getting a pair of cold-weather ones for your winter workouts. Leggings that are made to withstand the cold will be lifesavers for any outdoor runs or even if you're struggling to get yourself to the gym or a studio class and dealing with the early morning chill.

These cold-weather leggings and tights are normally made with fabrics like fleece and are designed to keep you warm without overheating. The best ones allow for enough circulation and are sweat-wicking. And a lot of them also have reflective details, which come in handy since daylight is a little bit lacking in the winter months.

Take a look at some options below. Here's to staying warm and cozy during your workouts!
