With winter just around the corner, it is time to either update or restock your winter wardrobe. However, having to wear two, three or even four layers isn’t always the most comfortable thing to do.
Fear not; you can purchase many cold-weather clothing items that will not only keep you warm and cosy but are also comfortable enough to wear all day. From Superdry jackets to a pair of fuzzy gloves, here are ten comfy winter wardrobe essentials.
Wool coats are one of the best and most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe. They are perfect for layering, will keep you warm no matter the weather, and are simple enough to fit into any wardrobe or style.
Wool coats can also be worn at the office, out for brunch, on a walk in the park, or for a formal event. The possibilities are endless, especially if you buy one that is a neutral colour such as black, grey or tan.
A pair of boots is a must if you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain or snow over the colder months. Timberland, Doc Martens, and tons of other labels have boots that are not only stylish but comfortable and incredibly functional.
A pair of ankle-high boots not only give your ankles support and can help prevent serious injury if you slip, but they also help to keep snow and water out of your shoes; the last thing you want is cold or frozen feet.
If there is only one winter accessory you buy, it should be a scarf. Keeping your neck warm is far more important than you think and will help stop those morning chills. Scarves can also be an incredibly stylish accessory when done right.
There are multiple ways to knot your scarf, allowing you to go from casual to formal in a matter of seconds or from relaxed to bundled up just as quickly.
Slip-on shoes are some of the comfiest on the planet, but they aren’t built for winter. However, more and more shoe labels are bringing out wool-lined sandals and slip-ons that are perfect for when it gets a bit colder outside.
Crocs have had a famous line of wool-lined sandals for a while now, giving you the comfort they are known for, as well as warmth.
Considering you lose a lot of heat through your head and feet, it is only fitting that you have the proper headwear this winter. Another simple item, a wool beanie, will keep your head and ears warm no matter the weather and can also end up looking very stylish.
If you are someone who is a bit more active and a wool coat feels too “heavy”, a puffer jacket is for you. They are light and breathable yet will still keep you warm and dry even if snow starts falling.
They are also versatile; you can throw one on when you go for your morning walk or when you are heading to a meeting. As mentioned, they are also great for active people and are one of the best jackets to wear on a winter run or hike.
Joggers are almost the definition of comfort. They are made from soft materials, can be a bit baggy or fitted, and can be worn all day and night. In winter, they are one of the best alternatives to wearing jeans, chinos or other types of trousers.
Joggers are also perfect for winter workouts, giving you enough room to move while still keeping you warm.
Finally, if you live somewhere that gets snow, frost, and has ice-cold temperatures, you need a pair of gloves. Wool-lined gloves will keep your hands toasty, as well as prevent them from drying out and sometimes cracking, a problem faced by those with sensitive skin every winter.
The humble jumper is one of the most popular winter items for a reason. Jumpers come in all shapes, sizes and colours as well as being made of different materials. You get jumpers that are a bit thinner and great for slightly warmer days and thick jumpers that are a must on those freezing mornings or nights.
