Fall is officially underway, which means you should make sure that your wardrobe has what it takes to tackle the typical seasonal elements to expect: lower temperatures, unpredictable rainfall, and a bunch of pumpkins surrounding your neighborhood. While the latter isn’t going to make an impact on your outfit, it’s a surefire sign that you should gear up for cold weather, and we’ve got the perfect collection of pieces from lululemon to help you prepare accordingly.
lululemon’s onslaught of premium performancewear is arguably your favorite athlete’s gear of choice. However, the brand has grown so ubiquitous for its yoga pants and activewear that it’s easy to overlook the versatility of its entire catalog. With that in mind, we decided to shed some light on everything it has to offer this fall, which goes far beyond high-quality running shorts. So, we sought 10 pieces from lululemon’s fall collection to ensure you’ll be dry and ready for anything all season long.
Pace Breaker Lined Short
Just because the seasons are changing, that doesn’t mean you can’t use a new pair of shorts. The Pace Breaker is available in 3 inseam lengths — 5”, 7”, and 9” — so you can tailor its look to your liking and comfort level. Regardless of which configuration you choose, the lightweight, four-way stretch composition is sure to provide ideal freedom of movement on your next morning run.
Licensed to Train Half Tight
Tights are an ideal piece of training gear to have on hand in the fall, and anything from lululemon’s Licensed to Train line is guaranteed to bode well in any environment. The 9″ tights offer low-friction support and moisture-wicking capabilities thanks to the brand’s proprietary Luxtreme fabric, which is merely one of its impressive technical innovations.
Drysense Training Short Sleeve Shirt
lululemon’s moisture-ready Drysense tech paves the way for sweat-wicking and quick-drying capabilities — what’s more are its sustainable efforts. Barring the trims, every last bit of polyester that composes this performance tee is recycled, showcasing the Canadian clothier’s strive towards an eco-friendlier catalog. Make sure to match it with your shorts, as it comes available in a myriad of colors
Heavyweight Crepe Long Sleeve Shirt
A trusty long-sleeve is as essential as any piece in the fall, especially when it comes to an option that’s this sturdy. It is made using plush, heavyweight Pima fabric that stays breathable and flexible enough to pave the way for airflow and room to breathe in case the sun is beaming a bit too hard. In contrast to other performance-centric pieces from lululemon, this is easy to rock at any casual get-together.
Commission Long Sleeve Shirt
A performance button-down to wick away sweat is essential for people back in the office, especially when the heater starts to crank up in the colder months. That said, the Commission Long Sleeve Shirt is a perfect choice for keeping things business casual, as it’s composed of an unorthodox brand of oxford fabric with four-way stretch, sweat-wicking, and quick-drying capabilities, proving that not even coffee stains can tamper with it for too long.
Metal Vent Tech Midweight Half-Zip
Half-zips are one of the most versatile garments imaginable, and lululemon designed this performance-tailored one with running in mind. Its seamless construction results in a chafe-free workout, allowing you to give it your all while this wondrous piece of outerwear wicks away sweat and stays impressively breathable.
City Sweat Pullover Hoodie French Terry
We’ve already mentioned half-zips and long-sleeves, but there’s one more piece you should (and probably do) have on hand: an abiding hoodie. That said, there’s no problem with adding an extra choice to the collection, and this soft, french-terry-made option is a great bet. Like any terry-crafted piece, it is naturally breathable and quick-drying; however, lululemon added a touch of trusty Lycra fiber for stretchiness and shape retention.
Utilitarian Cargo Pant
These well-made, Utilitarian cargos are loaded with storage, so your EDC loadout will remain intact at all times. As far as style goes, the water-repellent bottoms have a traditional fit, look, and feel, and even come rounded out with a ventilated gusset to promote mobility and provide thermal comfort.
GridLiner Fleece Zip Hoodie
A cozy fleece-crafted piece is always nice to have when the temperature dips, but this odor-regulating option is an ideal choice when things get a bit tepid. lululemon’s warm, textured GridLiner fleece fabric is another sweat-wicking and quick-drying take on a traditional textile, going to show that it’s adept at making anything capable of keeping you fresh and comfortable.
Down For It All Hoodie
A high-quality down jacket is exactly what you need to tackle an unpredictable winter, and lululemon’s is a great choice that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. The lightweight, water-repellent is built for taking on rainy days, as it’s composed of the brand’s trademark Glyde fabric. It boasts strategically placed PrimaLoft insulation to ensure you stay warm in the areas most exposed to rain and snow. Lastly, the 700-fill-power goose down used in the garment is fully certified to the Responsible Down Standard, so it’s a more ethical choice than other brands have to offer.
