Maybe your girl’s taste is always changing, but one thing guaranteed to win big no matter what? Comfortable and super stylish clothes that make her feel like her best self. This holiday season, we’re going all in on styles from Athleta Girl that keep her warm and secure while she gets moving outside. Here, our ten favorite gifts for girls.

1. High Rise Powervita Chit Chat Tight

A waistband that stays put means these buttery soft tights won’t roll down in the middle of practice or between classes. The combo of all-day comfort and a gorgeous hue (it’s called Elfin Purple. So cute, right?) makes this exactly the kind of gift a girl loves to open up.

2. Retroactive Sweat Set

Neutrals for winter? No thanks. Fashion is all about being bold this year, and that includes cold-weather wear. This Retroactive Oversized Hoodie and Retroactive Jogger set is made with a plush, stretchy fleece and brushed interior for a super-soft feel where it counts. We love the thumbholes on the sleeves and the secret interior pocket for things like money and lip balm—and we’re sure the girl you’re shopping for will too.

3. High Rise Stash Your Treasures Tight

This pair of tights is made from Powervita™ fabric, which is smooth, soft and supportive, kind of like a gentle hug. It also features moisture-wicking, UPF 50+ and quick-drying breathability to make her feel her best on the inside and outside, no matter how hard she’s playing or running.

4. Power Up Shimmer Top

The non-chafing fabric is seamless and stretchy, not to mention it dries in a flash if it gets wet. This top is made to give her ultimate comfort and mobility, while also making her feel extra special—one look at the shimmery detailing on this fun Wintergreen Mint color and you’ll know why. Plus, this top has a secret: There’s a mantra on the inner hem to keep her motivated.

5. So Toasty Tugga Sherpa Jacket

This fuzzy jacket is sustainably made from recycled polyester, a material sourced from post-consumer plastic bottles. It’s the ultimate wrapped-up warmth, complete with an inspirational mantra on the neck and a confidence charm for those moments when she might need a self-esteem boost. And can we talk about this stunning icy blue color?

6. So Snug Sherpa Half Zip

Who wouldn't feel a little cooler, a little more confident, a little warmer while wrapped up in a sherpa pullover like this one? Throw in the front kanga pocket and thumbholes, and it's easy to see why this gift is one of our favorites. It spans school, practice and play as a wear-anywhere jacket that's designed to keep her on her toes.

7. Long Distance 2.0 Bra

This bra is multifaceted, just like her. The high-neck racerback and long-line silhouette provide extra coverage, making her feel comfortable and secure no matter what. Sweat easily moves through the fabric to evaporate so she’s never soaked—perfect for breaking a sweat outside in the cold.

Athleta Girl

8. Feelin’ Great Jogger

They’re perfectly plush on both the inside and outside, making them another one of our favorite holiday gifts this year. She’ll love the internal pocket for stashing small essentials as much as you’ll love that they're made with Recycled Polyester fabric (a material sourced from post-consumer plastic water bottles).

9. So Snug Printed Sherpa Hoodie

Did we mention how much we’re loving Sherpa this year? Imagine her delight when she unwraps this multicolor hoodie and slips it on, only to find out that it’s just as cozy as it is cute. She’ll love getting dressed for school, practice and play dates when she has this soft piece to throw on.

10. Polartec Glove

Her fingers will stay toasty when she’s wearing this pair of gloves, which means the fun never stops. They’re stretchy, so her mobility is never limited, and they even wick away moisture so she’s always comfortable while wearing them (then confident when she slips them off).
