“For this outfit, I wore the Joyride Pant because they are perfect to throw on over a pair of running shorts after the run to stay warm while I am walking home from the gym.”
“I chose the Women’s Joyride Hoodie because I love the pockets and hood- in the cool fall and winter weather it’s wonderful! The small details like the ruching on the sleeves and the inside pocket for my cell phone have made this one of my favorite hoodies.”

“I chose the Joyride Hoodie and Joyride Pant together because they provide warmth on a run during these brisk fall days but in the utmost comfy and cozy way. The greatest quality about both pieces is that they are so versatile. The Joyride Pant can be worn as the main running bottom or simply a layer to remove when one gets too hot, same for the Joyride Hoodie. I like how the Joyride Hoodie has several subtle but useful details to it like the thumbholes, media cord holder and the back neck tape that says ‘Run Happy’ (Just as a little reminder!).”
“I chose to put these two together (Women’s Fly -By Sweatshirt and Joyride Skirt) because it combines the look of warmth and style. The Women’s Fly-By Sweatshirt is one of my favorite pieces in the Fall Collection because of its reversible capability and overall comfort. It’s great for throwing on post-workout or even if you’re going for the athletic casual look in everyday life. The Joyride Skirt embraces the flirty and girly side of running apparel, especially with its pleats and side slit.”

“The outfit I chose was the pink Joyride Hoodie with the Joyride Pant. Let’s be honest, I chose this outfit for COMFORT! The Joyride collection’s DriLayer Sheepish material is cozy and perfect for lounging on a fall day. On the other hand, the fit of the pant and hoodie allow you to dress them up a little, so they great for both a lazy day inside or for a busy day of running errands or just running.”

“Not going to lie – I am not the biggest fan of the running skirt – but as the saying goes, ‘you don’t know if you’ll like it until you try it!’ After slipping on the Joyride Skirt and going for a stroll I loved the way the skirt moved as I walked. It adds an extra layer of warmth and even has pockets! Pockets are all the rage right now. The Women’s Fly-By Sweatshirt is definitely one of my all-time favorites, too. It is super cozy and really showcases the versatility of this collection, as it is easy to wear on the go or on a run!”
