Winter is here, and although it can be fun to watch the snowfall from the warmth of your cozy home, sometimes you have to go out into the cold. Whether it’s for work or for play, there are several items every woman needs in her closet this winter season.
From a stylish and waterproof coat to a super warm pair of boots and everything in between (including some must-have accessories!), these essentials will keep you warm and ready for whatever winter throws at you — whether that means shoveling snow or playing in it!
1. Cozy Fleece Jacket
It doesn’t matter what type of jacket you prefer as long as it’s warm. Some things to consider when buying a winter jacket include choosing something lightweight enough that won’t make you hot if it’s really cold out but also warm enough to protect you from the elements.
A quilted jacket or a puffer are both great choices for staying warm this winter season. If you’re looking for something that will keep you dry as well, opt for a waterproof jacket with sealed seams. A fur-trimmed hood is always a nice touch too!
2. Long Sleeve Shirt
Every woman needs multiple long sleeve shirts to layer up in during the winter months. It doesn’t matter if they’re cotton or flannel — just make sure they cover your wrists and your crotch area to help protect your body from the cold. As an extra precaution against the cold, add some gloves and a scarf to your ensemble.
3. Leggings or Tights
Leggings and tights can be worn in any season, but they’re especially necessary during the winter months when it’s cold, and you want to keep your legs covered up. Leggings specifically will ensure you stay warm while still looking stylish!
A long shirt with leggings is a great outfit for walking around this winter if you don’t feel like wearing pants (which some people also prefer).
4. Booties or UGGS
Although everyone has their preference when it comes to boots, make sure you pick out something comfortable and weatherproof since there is a good chance you’ll be walking outside in the snow when picking the kids up from school or going to work. Any type of boot will do as long as it has a rubber sole and is waterproof to keep the wet and snow out.
If you don’t want to wear boots, try some cute UGGS (or any other type of winter/rain boot) instead! They’re super warm and comfy, like slippers but look like shoes everyone can appreciate.
5. Winter Coat
There are so many styles of coats available these days that there’s no excuse for having an ugly coat this winter season. From puffer coats to trench coats and even denim jackets, there’s something for every woman!
Make sure you find one that not only fits your style but also keeps you warm, dry, and protected from the elements.
6. Scarf and Gloves
Scarves are a great accessory to have no matter what time of year it is, but they’re especially useful during the winter months when you need something to cover your neck and face from the cold.
Finding one that matches your coat or outfit just takes some practice! Protective gloves will not only keep your hands warm but serve as another layer on top of your fingers — making sure you stay extra warm on even the coldest of days. There’s nothing worse than cold fingers, so finding some good gloves is essential for every woman’s winter wardrobe.
7. Cotton Sweater
Every woman needs at least one sweater in her wardrobe — but more is always better! You can choose from a variety of cotton sweaters that are comfortable, warm, and have a cute design.
Give your outfit that winter look by layering with one (or more) women’s ribbed cotton sweaters for the perfect combination of style and warmth!
8. Waterproof Snow Boots
If there’s one thing every woman needs in her closet, it’s at least one pair of good waterproof snow boots. With so many types to choose from, finding something you like should be easy — even if you need to try on multiple pairs before making your final decision!
Snow boots will protect your feet from the cold but also keep them dry when walking through wet or icy conditions. They’re definitely an essential item for this winter season!
No matter what the weather forecast says, make sure you have all of these essentials in your closet this winter! With so many options to choose from, it’s easy to find something that will keep you warm and looking stylish all season long. From a cozy coat to some cute booties, these are the must-haves you need to survive the cold weather!
