We're all for layering our activewear as the weather cools down, but there's only so much layering you can do before your athleisure game starts to suffer and you're still a little bit cold, no matter how hard you try.

Which is why we're obsessed with a trend that a lot of our favorite brands have been featuring this fall: Cozy, fleece-lined leggings. Whether you're heading to yoga in the early hours of the morning or braving a run in freezing temperatures, this trend has your back.

Here's why we're loving this trend.

Fleece-lined pants are inherently cozy, and when you're trying to convince yourself to get enough exercise when it's cold and dark out, the prospect of slipping into a pair of cozy workout pants makes the whole thing a little less awful.

Even better, these pants are fashionable and will protect joints that stiffen up in cold weather, like knees, ankles, and hips. They're also designed to be breathable and wick away moisture.

Here are some chic, comfy options to choose from.
