Winter has arrived, but sadly, the cold weather is here to stay. Each year comes with new fashion trends to help us get through the frigid weather. In need of a few new winter items? Look no further! Here is a list of essential winter gear you'll need to stay warm.
1. Love Your Melon hat.
Love Your Melon hats come in all different colors and styles, each one knitted with thick, soft cotton. With every purchase, the company gives a hat to a child fighting pediatric cancer. What's better than that?
Wearing a Bearcoat feels like you're always being hugged by your favorite fuzzy blanket. These coats' warmth comes from faux fur, so no animals are harmed in the process of making them, and you're sure to stay extra warm when outside!
3. Blanket scarf.
The frigid winds of the winter may not seem as bad at first, but eventually, they will take a toll on your neck and cheeks! Blanket scarfs are thick, cozy, and because they can be worn in so many different ways, they'll never go out of style.
4. Thermal leggings.
Fleece-lined leggings aren't just for skiing; they are so much warmer than the regular leggings you're used to wearing! If you consider yourself pretty active, thermal leggings are perfect for outdoor running, especially when the temperature drops. Keeping cozy is a necessity when you enjoy the outdoors year-round.
5. Boot socks.
Thick socks are a must when it comes to the cold weather. Although Autumn is the start of boot season, Winter is the time when you need a thick layer to keep your feet warm. The best winter socks are made by SmartWool because they're super warm and not too thick!
Not really a hat person? Earmuffs are coming back into style! They're a great way to stay warm without messing up your hair, and they're easy to pull on and off.
Turtlenecks are the most underrated of winter clothing items. They've regained their popularity from the 90s despite the stigma that goes along with them, and there's an array of styles to choose from. There's no need for a scarf when wearing a turtleneck!
8. Sherpa pullover.
Sherpas are similar to Bearcoats, but they're less thick and act more as a sweatshirt than a jacket. They are perfect for lounging around the house and staying warm and cozy while indoors.
