1. The Coat/Jacket: We talked about best in outerwear for this season a few weeks back, and it certainly bears repeating this time of year. Whether you opt for a casual quilted down piece, a beautiful wool coat, or something a little dressy, you’re surely not leaving the house without one. This Canada Goose style covers almost all of your needs – down to about zero degrees. So, you get feminine style and a whole lot of warm. While it’s filled with 625 fill power white duck down (this is serious insulation), it’s got a belt, removable coyote fur hood trim, and smooth fabric to create a stylish look at the same time. If they're out of your size, try Bloomingdale's or Canada Goose's own website.

Cold Weather Essentials: 5 Stylish Necessities to Avoid Frost Bite

Whether you are a fan of the cold weather, or just waiting for spring to come, winter weather is bearing down on most of us. And if it’s anything like last winter, we’ve got to be ready. So, let’s make the best of it with the very best cold weather accessories. Whether we’re going out to walk the dog, take the kids to school, warm up the car to the head in to the office, or walk to the train or bus, there’s not much avoiding Mother Nature. Being prepared doesn’t mean we can’t look fabulous, too. What do we need? An amazing coat, a soft scarf, a stylish hat, functional gloves, and warm boots that are still feminine. Once you’ve got those key ingredients, all you need are some really warm thoughts. We’ll help you with the first 5 things…

Take a look at our overview here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see our top picks for each category in the “Ladies’ Top 5 Cold Weather Essentials Hit List”.

5. The Boots: Many of us ladies have a love/hate relationship with boots. We love the idea of a pretty pair of boots, but practicality comes seeping in. When its snowy and icy out, are our cute boots going to get us to the car, the train, or the office in one piece – without frostbite? Luckily, footwear technology has continued to advance over the years, so we can have high traction soles, waterproof seaming and materials, as well as warm linings that will work with dressier and more casual clothes. These Santana Canada boots are knee-high perfection. They look great with skinny jeans or a skirt, and yes ladies, they are waterproof. Not only that, they are lined with woolly fabric. While they look like they’re all about style, they’re secretly all about function – these boots are rated to keep you warm to below zero temperatures, and the seams of these Italian leather boots are all heat sealed, so water won’t get in. That’s what Santana Canada is all about – function and fashion.

4. The Gloves: From soft cashmere-lined leather gloves, to wools and versions with touch screen technology, there are a lot of smart ways to keep our hands warm, while looking pretty. Use this opportunity to have a little fun with some color and flair; or, keep things classic with a luxurious leather or cashmere. Oh heck, do both...winter can be long. Start with these supple Italian leather, cashmere lined gloves from Saks Fifth Avenue. These simple and timelessly well-appointed gloves come up past your wrist, a length that slides under your coat sleeve seamlessly. The pointer finger and thumb tips have very subtle, but substantial, patches (you can see the minor seam once you zoom in on the glove through the “shop it” button) so you can use your phone’s touchscreen without taking off your gloves. And they actually work. We’ve tried many tech-friendly gloves – we’ll talk about some more in our Fashion Finds list – and we’ve found these to be the best in luxury.

3. The Hat: When we were kids, we always tried to get out of wearing a hat. But we’ve smartened up over the years. And we’ve embraced how stylish – and practical – they can be. A hat is a great accessory for any of your coats, and there is a style to work with everyone’s face shape and hair color. Fedora styles are the staple for fall, but as it gets colder, we always reach for knits and things that cover our ears. This season, there’s a lot of variety so they can be dressed up and down to pair with any style coat. One of our favorite staples for the season comes from 1717 Olive, a cold weather accessory line that has great design appeal at even better prices. And when it comes to fit, their hats deliver on that front, too. This beanie’s fabric has a shaker knit stitch with a fluffy texture. And that’s exactly what gives the hat a lot more style than a basic knit cap, with all the same practicality. The black is an easy choice, and the pink is fun, too. They also offer a double-knit construction that has a soft brushed texture, and is a bit more slim to the head. For both, you can uncuff it and leave it slouchy, or wear it as shown, which is our preference. They are both really warm – and not at all itchy. At these prices, you can get more than one.

2. The Scarf: Oversized and cozy or slim and soft, a scarf is a must in the cold weather. It’s a great way to give a little added style to your outerwear. And let’s not forget the practical side of things – they keep you warm. There are lots of ways to tie them – tightly around your neck, outside the collar of your coat, over your head…however you choose, luxurious cashmeres and soft wools in rich colors or stylish plaids and patterns add that perfect finishing touch. This Club Monaco cashmere is ideal for any coat. In its oatmeal and black color combination, it goes with everything, while adding a little interest with its simple pattern. It is extremely soft, so we especially love to wear it with any coat that has a high, closed collar because you can easily wind it around your neck and have it fit snugly under your coat. It also comes in beautifully neutral solids
