When it comes to waking up the senses, or shaking off a long day of sitting at your desk, nothing beats a brisk neighborhood jog. So, to help you make the most of that clean outdoor air, we’ve rounded up the warmest—and decidedly cutest—workout clothes for winter. Ready, set, stock up!

Being the procrastinators that we are, it typically takes the onslaught of the polar vortex to prompt our search for winter-friendly footwear. This November, of course, was no exception. With plummeting temperatures and bone-freezing gusts making our morning commute feel like an expedition to the arctic, we stumbled into the office with one mission: buy winter boots!

The Five Ultimate Fashion Pieces to Invest in This Fall

Get focused on fall fashion with our five favorite style staples of the season.

Fall Fashion

When it comes to great clothing, no season gets our fashion-loving hearts beating like fall. Fresh off the flimsy fabrics that characterize the sticky summer months, we’re more than ready to welcome the warm knits, luxe layers and royal color palette that pop up on our autumn purchase list every season. So what are those wonderful wardrobe staples that get us pumped for crisp pre-winter weather? You’re about to find out! We’ve rounded up the five key pieces we can’t wait to invest in this fall.

The Coat

An ankle-length coat seems to be everywhere this season, and while we love the camel-colored variety spotted in streetstyle blogs across the web, this gray number from Spanish retailer Zara satisfies our current outerwear obsession. ($189, zara.com)
