Here are some of the best cold weather activewear picks for 2023.

The new year is a time when many of us are thinking about wellness and fitness goals for the upcoming year.

The holidays are over, and if you’ve picked up a few extra pounds, then you may be looking for ways to get rid of them.

Sometimes it’s hard to be motivated to workout when it’s cold outside and we have less light to enjoy during the day.

But it’s always possible to workout somehow, even if it’s indoors when the weather doesn’t allow you to go outdoors (I find that YouTube walking videos get me up and keep me going when I can’t go outside!).

One thing that motivates me is having great activewear to wear while working out. Put together a few great outfits that you love, and dressing up to workout becomes an event.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect outfit to help you reach your goals, or you just want to spruce up your wardrobe for the new year, here are some of the best activewear clothes and accessories.

The Best Cold Weather Activewear for 2023


A sweatshirt is a long-sleeved pullover shirt made from heavy cotton. It is made to keep you warm in cold weather. If it has a hood today it would be known as a hoodie.

2—Cozy Long Sleeve Tee

These shirts are perfect to wear for coverage as an extra layer for warmth while walking or doing low impact fitness activities.

3—High Waisted Leggings

High waisted leggings keep you covered while you’re busy, and you don’t have to worry as much about being exposed when you bend over. Plus, high waisted pants worn with a cropped top is a great look.

4—Sports Bra

A sports bra is essential for support when you work out. This foundation piece is so important that it’s not unusual to have more than one to choose from, depending what kinds of things you’ll be doing that day.

5—Long Sleeve T-Shirt

A more fitted long sleeved t-shirt is perfect for medium impact or high impact activities, since it doesn’t move around as much as a looser t-shirt, but it still provides a layer to keep you warm. Also, the design is perfect for layering under a jacket.

6—Puffer Vest

A puffer vest can be a great piece to layer over your outfit when you’re going to be outside. These can be ideal for chilly days when you want to go for walk outdoors to get some fresh air.

7—Belt Bag

A belt bag is great for holding small items that you want to carry with you while you’re working out. The belt fits around the waist, keeping you hands free, so that it’s easier to participate in events like going to amusement parks and festivals, going on a picnic or to the farmer’s market, joining a play date—and running your errands, too.

8—Baseball Cap

A baseball cap is great to have on hand for those “messy hair” moments when it’s time to head outside, but you don’t have time to fuss with your hair.


A unitard is the perfect item to wear for doing yoga, Pilates, or other activities that require bending over. Layer a cropped t-shirt or cropped sweatshirt over the unitard for a great look that can help you stay warm.

10—Cozy Fleece Jacket

A fleece jacket is something that you’ll want to have around during cold weather season. Layer it over your best workout looks for more warmth.

11—Beanie Hat

An insulated beanie hat is perfect for those mornings when you want to out for a walk or run, and then stop by your favorite coffee shop afterwards.

12—Fleece Sweater

A half-zip, fleece is super stylish, and you can use it for your daily walk or for running errands. This one has a tall collar to help keep your neck warm, plus pockets for storing small items. Layer it over a long sleeve t-shirt and thick leggings, and you have a great outfit for walking in cool weather.


Joggers are perfect to wear for walking or casual activities. These are super comfortable and perfect for an active lifestyle.

14—Running Shoes & Athletic Socks

Whether you have a treadmill or the weather is fine for going outside, a running shoe is a must have for doing things like walking, jogging, or running. This style comes in different colors that you can match to your taste or mood. The shoes are also comfortable and light, making them a joy to wear for working out.

Add a pair of athletic socks with reinforced toes and heels, and you have a great pair.

15—Hydration Bottle

Even when it’s cold outside, it’s important to keep your insides hydrated. A double-walled water bottle that helps you keep track of how much water you are drinking can be helpful toward meeting your goals when it comes to drinking enough water each day.

16—Yoga Mat

A yoga mat gives you a dedicated space to practice yoga. This popular yoga mat is cushioned and it has a non-slip surface to help the mat stay in place. The mat is also latex-free and free from the top six harmful phthalates. Add in the beautiful colors to choose from, and it’s a great mat to use for practicing yoga.
