If you’re a runner, you’re probably anticipating the transition from summer to fall (overheated runs are over!), but with this change comes a change of wardrobe. Let’s face it: our tank tops and skimpy shorts aren’t going to cut it when the breeze picks up. Come fall, you’ll need longer layers and transition pieces. Think: comfy sweaters, breathable long-sleeved shirts, and fleece (lots of it). Lucky for you, we looked at some layering pieces from Free People Movement that will keep you totally comfy, no matter how cold the temperature drops. (And they can be easily removed when not…)

While Free People is known for its simple, boho dresses and other “cool-girl” fashion staples, its athleisure line, FP Movement, is also a one-stop shop for stylish and reliable activewear. From runsies (overalls you can run in) to lightweight puffer jackets, FP Movement has everything you need to go the distance on your next fall jog. Beyond being comfortable, lightweight, and breathable, the pieces are meant to layer over sports bras, tank tops, T-shirts, and even long-sleeved tops, allowing you to layer up or down as you wish.
