Is It Just Me, Or Is Athleta Especially Rad Right Now?


Sponsored by Athleta & ShopStyle Collective.

It’s not hard to find Athleta pieces I love at any time of year. But for cold fall and winter days? Yep, they’re especially good. I mean, look at all this sherpa. You will always have me at sherpa.

And not only does Athleta continue to make some of my favorite outerwear, workout wear, and casual clothing (in a fabulous range of sizes, I might add) but they are really nailing the outfit inspiration game, too. I could honestly put the whole site (just about) into this post, friends.

Cozy & Sporty Winter Outfit Layers from Athleta

Let’s look at some cozy pieces followed by some outfit ideas. These are some of my favorite looks I’ve seen yet and it’s making me excited to get cozy, layer up, and get out there this winter. Athleta pieces are well-made, thoughtful, useful for everyday life, and continually some of my go-to clothing year after year.

Athleta offers many versatile pants that pass the test as both athletic clothes and athleisure outfits for work (in a casual workplace). And for travel? Fuhgeddaboutit. Athleta is without fail, my first stop for finding comfy yet cute pants for travel and road trips. Plus, I can always manage to find a new jacket — especially one with a bit of a sporty vibe.

Cozy & Sporty Winter Outfit Layers from Athleta

01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10

01 | Cozy Sherpa Snap Sweatshirt: This cozy pullover sherpa is offered in black, spiced cabernet and magnolia white. Sizes XXS – 3X.

02 | Cozy Sherpa Coat: Speaking of cozy…THIS! Also offered in black and has that really cool quilted herringbone texture down the back of the coat. LOVE. Made from recycled nylon and also in sizes XXS – 3X, tall + petite sizes.

03 | Flurry Seamless Henley: This top is so cool on — that rad collar! It’s technical and would keep you totes warm on a chilly run, but then you can unsnap that collar to cool down. BUT, if you’re not a runner like me this just looks adorable. TTS. I take a M.

04 | Tugga Jacket: I mean, I think I’ve already said “cozy” too many times but these sherpas from Athleta are seriously that! I was in the store recently and petted them all, haha. Check out the cabernet color in this one! Sizes XXS – 3X, tall + petite.

05 | Cozy Karma Funnel Neck Sweatshirt: It’s the sleeves on this for me. Also in the pretty winter white and cabernet shades. XXS – 3X.

06 | Salutation Stash Rib Flares: Soft, cute and on-trend. Red leggings alert! These come in black as well as spiced cabernet and a really good candy red. Sizes XXS – 3X, tall + petite. These are cute for workouts or everyday sporty looks.

07 | Rainier Bootcut Pant: Kat loves these. They are truly warm flare leggings with great technical details. XXS – 3X, tall + petite. I’m 5’4″ and prefer the regular length in this style, instead of a cropped cut.

08 | Retroplush Hoodie Sweatshirt: The fabric on these is really lovely, soft but has a little more structured feel than your average sweatshirt…it takes it up a notch. XXS – 3X, tall + petite. In some lovely neutrals and a soft pink option.

09 | Cozy Karma Asym Pullover: The neckline on this is an interesting design and also gives you some versatility. I’m always looking for a funky layer to pop over my barre3 workout wear and this is just that. XXS – 2X.

10 | Pranayama Restore Wrap: This is one of their top sellers for loungewear and athleisure. It’s so soft and drapey and a lovely light layer for when the house is a bit chilly. It’s easy to pack and travel with too — kind of like a robe to wear over PJs or leggings. This would make a great gift for anyone, especially moms of all ages. This comes in a bunch of lovely colors in sizes XXS – 3X, tall + petite.

Athleta’s styling on their site is seriously on point right now! The layers, the colors, the textures. So many good combos. So I thought to highlight some outfit ideas that I’ll personally be trying this winter.

Athleta is Acing Winter Athleisure Outfit Ideas Right Now

Look 1: Beanie | Jacket | Pants // Look 2: Vest | Hoodie | Turtleneck | Pants

Look 3: Blazer | Top | Leggings

Look 4: Beanie | Wrap | Leggings // Look 5: Vest | Jacket | Turtleneck | Leggings

I’ve talked about this forever, but these outfits illustrate if you want to achieve a really cool look, especially in chillier weather, LAYERS are key.

A layered look shows thoughtfulness about what you put together and makes you look like a real style boss. I love vests and oversized outer layers for this reason. Hmmm…like sizing up on that really rad Primatwill Blazer on Look 3…okay, that’s now on my wishlist for sure. Or the vest over the jacket over the turtleneck on Look 5. LOVE.
