Don’t love win­ter temps? We don’t ei­ther. But when you’re out­side freez­ing your buns off dur­ing a win­ter run or hike, let this fact warm you up: Re­peated ac­tiv­ity in the cold in­creases brown fat, which helps use up stored en­ergy for heat and, in turn, pre­vents weight gain. Still not con­vinced to get out­side? Try th­ese cute and (warm) gear ideas:

Locks in body heat un­der your coat for ex­tra-cold days on the ski slopes but also acts as an outer layer to strip down to when you work up a sweat on milder days. A light­weight layer that can un­zip to give you some air.

A close-fit­ting layer that keeps body heat in and wicks sweat away. A soft, breath­able fab­ric with flat seams that feels com­fort­able on the skin.
