Fit Guide
1. The Coat or Jacket. A great Winter coat is always essential, but this season, it’s a true fashion statement, well beyond function. We talked about some of our top picks a couple weeks ago, and here, we’re focusing on the ones for the truly cold days. This Woolrich parka is simply amazing in its function and style. They’ve been making quality outdoor gear since 1830, so they know what they’re doing. The rabbit fur lining is removable, so this coat will keep you comfortable on a Fall day and warm on a blustery Winter day, too. It’s even coated with Teflon® to keep you dry in the rain, sleet, and snow. (But don’t worry, it’s still very soft and luxe to the touch.) The mid-thigh length is longer in the back, with a vent for easy walking and sitting. And let’s not forget – it’s also fabulous-looking, in a versatile style that you can wear to work and on the weekends. The modern fit is perfect to wear over the bulkiest of your Winter clothes in XS(2) – XL(16). See the rest of our picks in this week’s Fashion Finds.

5 Key Cold Weather Accessories: Ladies’ Winter Style Done Right

With Halloween fresh in our minds, we can’t help but think about all those childhood Halloweens when our parents made us cover up our awesome costumes with coats, scarves, hats and gloves…which we, of course, promptly hid in the mailbox so as not to ruin our chances for candy. We’re all a little bit wiser now, aren’t we? We cannot only appreciate the warmth of the right cold weather accessories…we can appreciate how they enhance the rest of our outfit now, as well. So, while we can’t avoid Mother Nature, we can make her a little jealous. With a fabulous coat, stylish scarf, warm gloves, and great hat, you’ll be happy to walk around showing these off – and save your mailbox for the actual mail.

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 20 Cold Weather Necessities”. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. Stay warm!

5. The Boots. Boots of every shape and style prevail this season. But to battle bad weather, it’s not just about what’s cute. We also need to worry about slushy puddles, slippery ice, and keeping warm. And our picks in this week’s Fashion Finds tackle both, so you can look good on the way to work, for a night out, or when you’re having some weekend fun. These La Canadienne boots are a universal winner, in a tailored reinterpretation of motorcycle boots. They don’t look like typical utilitarian cold weather boots, but they will get the job done. The foot is waterproof so you can splash through the a slushy sidewalk puddle and still come out of it with dry feet. And the shearling lining will keep your feet warm and cozy. They come in brown (shown) and black (with black shearling), both creating a stylish look with jeans, leggings, and even with a casual skirt and wooly tights.

4. The Gloves. From soft cashmere-lined leather gloves to furs and wools, there are a lot of smart ways to keep our hands warm, while looking pretty and being practical. And speaking of smart, many of them are thankfully geared towards letting us use our smartphones while we keep our hands warm. These shearling flip-top gloves from Mackage do it all. The flip-top can be buttoned down to reveal the top portion of you fingers when you want to use your phone. For some of us, especially if you have shorter fingers, those gloves with the touchscreen technology at the fingertips just don’t work that well. But these are foolproof. And you can just flip the mitten-like cover over your fingers when you really want to get warm – and you certainly will, with the luxe shearling material. Once you get these on, you won’t want to take them off. Unlike true fingerless gloves, these have a thumb and separate finger openings for even added warmth and true high quality.

3. The Hat. Everything from fedoras to knit beanies are fashionable this year, so there is a style for each shape face, hairstyle, and coat silhouette. This knit from Vince works on everyone, and the black/white color combination goes with everything. (It comes in a beautiful black/teal mix through the ‘shop it’ button, too.) Unlike many knit cold weather hats, this one is actually blends some cotton in with the wool and the result is perfection. Not only is it incredibly soft and free of any scratchy feeling, the cotton adds a nice weight to it that is really warm and cozy. There is an over-sized matching scarf, too. The trick to wearing a knit hat that is a little longer, as is the trend these days, is to just put it on as you normally would and let any extra fabric slouch back, as shown. You can just pull it down with your fingers. See the rest of our picks in this week’s Fashion Finds.

2. The Scarf. While we’re highlighting our top scarf Finds in a variety of sizes and patterns in this week’s Fashion Finds, this Bajra airy wool scarf represents one of the most practical scarf trends of the season – the over-sized scarf. Because the material is gauzy and light, you can fold and wrap it to wear snuggly around your neck. But you can also wear it on the outside of your coat, as a shawl or in a loose loop around your neck, for a stylish pop of color. (Here are some great pictures and tips so you can see what we mean.) And the best part is that you can keep it on as part of your outfit once you remove your coat – the fabric and weight easily transitions. We’re highlighting this gorgeous rich red, and it comes in a few colors through the ‘shop it’ button, including some neutrals.
