37 Cold-Weather Clothing Staples You’ll Live in This Season

Share on Facebook

To put it bluntly: winter just isn’t my jam. I don’t like being cold. I’ll always appreciate how pretty snow looks while it’s falling, but there’s zero chance I’m stepping foot outdoors — my living room is just too warm. As for skiing? Snowboarding? Tubing down an icy hill? Clearly, I don’t do any of that. But as someone who could always be warmer despite jacking the thermostat up to 75 (RIP my utility bill), I’ve become a bit of an expert when it comes to picking out clothes to keep you warm in the winter.

From fleece-lined sweatpants to heated neck gaiters, you’ll find a ton of roasty-toasty clothes on this list that’ll keep you warm all winter long. Or maybe you’re planning to hibernate inside until the sun comes out in the spring? In that case, I’ve also made sure to include a few loungewear pieces that are perfect for chilly houses.

So what are you waiting for? I can’t see those fleece-lined sweats being in stock for much longer — especially with the weather getting colder by the day.

The Leggings That Are Soft & Comfy

Every closet needs a good pair of leggings — and these ones are available for less than $20. They’re made with a hint of spandex for some comfortable stretch, while the high-waisted cut helps streamline your figure no matter what top you’re wearing. Oh, and did I mention how buttery-soft the fabric is?

These Compression Socks Are Must-Haves For Running

Just because the weather’s turned cold doesn’t mean you can’t still run outside — and these compression socks can help you make it that last mile.

Now that the weather is cold, you can’t get away with wearing skirts to the office — so grab these palazzo pants.

Winter weather doesn’t mean you have to wear winter colors — grab this colorful sweater if your closet has become a bit too monochromatic.

A Lightweight Vest That’s Also Water-Resistant

If you’re a sweaty person like me, a lightweight vest — like this one — makes it easy to create stylish layered looks without getting too hot. The zipper pockets keep your keys or phone safe, and the water-resistant exterior helps keep you dry if it starts to rain.

These Snow Overalls That Are Seriously Fashionable

I don’t even like going out in the snow, but I’d consider doing it just to wear these snow overalls. The bright red color isn’t only on-trend, but the suspenders at the top are also adjustable. And if you aren’t into colors? You can also grab it in black.

A Crewneck Sweatshirt That Isn’t Too Heavy

This Compression Shirt I’ve Been Wearing For Years

When I say that I’ve been using this shirt as a base layer in cold weather, I’m not kidding — I’ve literally owned it for 10 years. And in those 10 years, it’s somehow never pilled, faded, or stretched out. Part of it is probably due to the four-way stretch polyester it’s made from, whereas the other part is likely since Under Armour is absolutely high-quality.

These Pants That Are Lined With Polar Fleece

Gotta go out in the cold, but don’t want to put on snow pants? The solution: these fleece-lined pants from Eddie Bauer. They look just like regular pants despite being so, so warm. So warm, in fact, that you can even wear them during cross-country skiing — or simply wear them underneath your snow pants for another warm layer.

An Oversized Sweater With A Touch Of Retro

Something about this sweater just screams the 90s to me — and with thousands of positive reviews, it’s clearly a total hit with Amazon shoppers. “I love this sweater,” raved one of them. “It is worth the money, great quality. I wear a medium but wanted this oversized fit. I ordered an XL. I love how it fits, loose and cozy. I may have been able to get away with one size up, but I don’t regret doubling my size.”

A Big Scarf That Doubles As A Shawl

A Heated Neck Gaiter For Extra-Cold Days

This Thermal Fleece With Handy Thumbholes

Thumbholes are great for keeping your sleeves from riding up, and this thermal fleece has got two of ’em! (Granted, it wouldn’t make sense if only one sleeve had a thumbhole.) But that isn’t even the best part — its raglan sleeves give you a wide range of motion while you’re exercising, while the half-zip neckline lets you cool down while you’re running.

These Fun Socks Made From Thick Wool

If your feet are feeling cold but you aren’t into boring black socks, try putting on these ones made from thick wool. The bright patterns give them a fun vibe — and they’re warm enough to wear inside of boots during cold days spent outdoors.
