Forget it's cold with these winter workout essentials

Wondering what to wear for outdoor workouts in winter? This guide will help you put together a warm workout outfit to battle the cold.

Leggings will continue to be hot this year. In fact they are getting even crazier. If your feeling it try a crazy pattern mixed with a bright top. If you prefer to stay a little more laid back with your look try a solid colored legging in a color other than gray and black. You can mix this with a plain top to help you stay in your comfort zone and in style at the same time. Leggings are going to get crazy this year with all types of crazy graphics that and illusions that look crazy when you run. In addition to the graphic upgrade on leggings they will also be more breathable without being see through. Check out Nike’s latest legging for a comfortable fit and a crazy graphic.

Mesh Yoga also offers their crazy take on leggings with these yellow leggings. While these are specifically designed for yoga they are versatile for street style and running.
