Get Started


Phat Buddha Worth Glitter Tube Top ($36, phatbuddhawear.com)

“Seasonal picks are the perfect way to motivate for cooler weather. I love the way Phat Buddha embraces fall with this rich, deep eggplant-colored glittery (obviously!) bandeau. Although it’s strapless, I’ve found that Phat Buddha’s tops have a really snug, non-slip fit, which makes them great on their own at yoga or when worn under a deep long-sleeved v-neck during a run.”

—Stacy Lazar, Will Run for Glitter





Lucy Fit Squad Tank ($59, lucy.com)

“The baby doll workout tank is becoming so popular. This one by Lucy feels fashion forward, not matronly. I like that this will work at yoga, a barre class, or in the gym.”

—Melissa Davison, Fitness NYC 







Victoria’s Secret Sport Training Tank ($26.50. victoriassecret.com)

“I’m obsessed with these soft and comfy tanks—they come in a variety of bright, punchy colors and they’re just a tad bit oversized, so you can tuck them in, tie them in back or leave them lose. They’re functional yet sexy—I especially love the low racerback fit. You can wear them with a bright sports bra and they’re a tiny bit transparent.”

—Kimberly Peiffer, Fab Fit Fun




Lululemon Run For Your Money Tank ($68, lululemon.com)

“I love this top because it’s light and easy to run in, plus it has a little something different going on!”

—Theodora Blanchfield, Losing Weight in the City







Nike NFL Replica V-Neck T-Shirt ($39.99, footlocker.com)

“Fall means football season and what better way to support your favorite team while working out than with this Nike NFL T-Shirt?  The v-neck gives it a more feminine feel while still holding true to the classic NFL feel.  I may not be American, but I am an East Coast girl up here in Nova Scotia, so New England is my team. (Go Brady!)

—Suzi Fevens, Confessions of a Fitness Instructor


Athleta Hurdle Top ($69, athleta.gap.com)

“A deep mustard running top is the perfect way to welcome fall’s cooler temperatures, and I like the bit of femininity in the ruffle detail. This could be the perfect top to wear in the ING Marathon, since I’d stand out in the crowd!”

—Ashley Diamond, Healthy Happier Bear




Juno Sports Bra ($33-$56, movingcomfort.com)

“My go-to sports bra is now available in berry! It’s such a pretty fall color. I’m obsessed. So even though I’ll be layered up come autumn, knowing I have a pop of jewel-toned support on underneath will make me happy while I’m running.”

—Alison Feller, Ali on the Run



Brooks Women’s Essential Run Vest II ($70, brooksrunning.com)

“There’s something about a running vest  that screams ‘it’s fall’! Am I wrong? This one is perfect for days when a full jacket isn’t needed, but you could stand some protection from the wind. I’m also a fan of the deep purple colors Brooks is featuring this fall.”

—Meghann Anderson, Meals and Miles



Zobha The Harvey Jacket ($180, zobha.com)

“Although, it’s still cool enough to run in a tank for much of the fall, a sweaty walk to brunch after a Central Park race can bring on a chill so cold my fingers turn blue. This jacket would be perfect to wear post-race to ward off chills and protect from any unpredictable weather patterns (like snow in October!).  It’s also water resistant.”

—Jess Underhill, Fit Chick in the City






Oakley Runner Capri ($58, oakley.com)

“For those days that I just want to suit up and head out, I am loving these runners capris from Oakley. I know, it feels like everyone’s offering charcoal Dri-fit-esque capris for runners lately, but you know what makes these different? The way they’re woven prevents that shiny, spandex-y look when you’re wearing them!”

—Erika Kendall, A Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss



Nike Lunar Hyper Workout+ Sportpack ($220, store.nike.com)

“I recently had the opportunity to try out these shoes—they’re amazing. The technology in these Nikes allows you to calculate every move and track every rep of every drill you do. Then, it syncs directly to your mobile device. It’s like your own little personal trainer.”
—Kimberly Peiffer, Fab Fit Fun



Athleta Home Stretch Hoodie ($98, athleta.gap.com)

“I’m a huge comfy hoodie junkie. This fall, I’d love to get my hands on this fashionable little number (in gray) from Athleta‚ a really nice substitution for all of the sportier windbreakers hanging in my closet. I can definitely see wearing it from Jivamukti in Union Square to a leafy fall run in Central Park then onto coffee with a friend.”
Stacy Lazar, Will Run For Glitter



GapFit Full Zip Jacket ($69.95, gap.com)

“A jacket (with pockets!) that’ll take me from Central Park and straight to breakfast afterward? Sign me up. And for a jacket, it’s a sweet deal at less than $70. Plus: thumb holes!”
Alison Feller, Ali on the Run








New Balance Tonic Crop ($29.99, newbalance.com)

“This is hands down my favorite sports bra. It’s the only one I’ve found that’s both comfortable and supportive.  The black, violet, yellow combination is a nice muted color palette for fall.”
Melissa Davison, Fitness NYC
Reebok CrossFit Nano 2.0 ($109, reebok.com)
“I can’t get enough of Reebok’s colorful sneaker designs. I’ve tried their RealFlex and ZigNano technology, but have yet to work out in these Crossfit kicks. The purple is SO spunky and would put that pep in my step that the WOD requires!”
Caitlin Croswell, Cait Plus Ate
UnderArmour Women’s UA Escape Full Zip II ($69.99, underarmour.com)
“Lightweight jackets are great for layering on chilly morning runs. I love ones with a full zipper because it makes it easy to take them off in the middle of a run if you get too warm. And this piece gets bonus points for having thumb holes to keep the sleeves in place and keep your hands warm.”
Jess Milcetich, Jess Runs
Athleta Relay Capri ($69, athleta.gap.com)
“These capris will be perfect for running this fall when it’s not quite cold enough for tights, but too cool for shorts. I like the thick material and wide flattering waist band. But my favorite feature is that they include a water-proof, removable pouch that fits inside the back pocket. So when I stop in to Juice Generation after my run I don’t have to embarrassingly hand them sweaty money.”
Jess Underhill, Fit Chick in the City
CW-X Women’s Ventilator Tight ($89.99, ladyfootlocker.com)
“Now that cooler weather is here, I like compression to keep my legs feeling fresher longer during my long marathon training runs. CW-X is my go to brand for compression. And while these are expensive, you feel the difference immediately and they last for ages! They have multiple types, some of which provide ventilation in case you tend to sweat a lot—like me!”
Ashley Diamond, Healthy Happier Bear
