    1. A mid-length, ~unbearably~ cozy teddy jacket when you want to show off the bottom half of your dazzling outfit, but still need something to feel like a furry hug while you're out braving the cold.

    Reviewer wearing a brown teddy coat

    Promising review: "This is perfect! It’s so cozy, and made the winter mornings when it’s below freezing so much more bearable. I was surprised by how extremely warm it is and I love that. It’s been a quality-of-life-changer for me and I get so many compliments on its softness." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 16 colors).

    2. Fleece-lined leggings that will seamlessly winter-proof any outdoor outfit with their thick, fuzzy layer. Once you slide on these legwarmers, you'll truly believe it's what's on the inside that counts.


    Promising review: "Oh man, these leggings are so snuggly, and warm. I thought the extra little cuff part was kinda odd at first, but now I love it. If I slip it over my heel it keeps them from riding up if I'm layering leggings. I wore these during a trip to Chicago when it was 30 degrees and they kept me nice and warm! I'm going to be buying another pair." —NT

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98 (available in eight colors).

    3. A turtleneck sweater for a layer that is every part gorgeous and weather-appropriate. Its super-soft material and high neck will make you laugh at the thought of hibernating inside all winter long.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $22.40 (originally $32, available in sizes 0X–3X and four colors).

    4. A cult-favorite Orolay down coat with over 12,000 reviews that will upgrade your outerwear style and equip you with so much warmth, you'll actually look forward to eating outside.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this coat! I just got it this year so I have not yet worn it in snow. It has gotten to 30-degrees Fahrenheit here in the Midwest and I wore this jacket with a thin long-sleeve tee and didn’t feel a bit cold! I have two big dogs that need a lot of exercise and LOVE snow/cold weather so this was needed! If you want a fitted coat, this is not it. This coat is down filled, has Sherpa in the hood (which I LOVE), and is super warm. I can wear a thick sweater under it without problem. It is a bit fitted at the hip area but the zippers on both sides are perfect and only unzipped half way helps this issue no problem. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COAT!" —Erin Doser

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in sizes XXS–5X and in six colors).

    5. A heavyweight flannel that levels up a classic basic by adding extra warmth in its weight — making it a cross between a jacket and a shirt. It even has hand-warming pockets for when you're stuck in line waiting for that hot toddy!

    Model wearing green and navy plaid shirt

    Promising review: "This is an excellent shirt jacket. The material is a soft, thick gauge flannel that works great as a mid-layer during winter and as an outer layer for spring/fall. I bought the solid olive green one, and will probably pick up the navy option as well. The construction is sturdy and all of the pockets are really useful." —Karl

    Get it from Amazon for $30.15 (available in sizes XS–3XL tall and in 14 colors).

    6. A fan-favorite Carhartt hat to pack into your bag when it's officially beanie season and you want to be a-head of the imminent temperature drop.,

    Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It is thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year round in Dallas or Chicago, it's my favorite hat. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 28 colors).

    7. A long-line faux fur maxi coat that will not only make you feel as glamorous as JLo in a 2000s music video, but will serve up serious protection from the elements so you can wine and dine out all winter long.

    Get it from Boohoo for $62.50 (originally $125, available in sizes 12–20 and in three colors).

    Model wearing a multi-colored marled sweater

    Black sherpa gloves

    Get them from Amazon for $20 (available in four colors).

    12. Fleece-lined jeggings because who said you need to sacrifice style over function?! These babies have all the qualities of your favorite pair of skinny jeans, but are cozy enough to keep you extra warm and comfortable like your go-to leggings.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by this product! I ordered these for a trip to Washington state where I did a lot of hiking in snow and cool weather. These held up really well, had enough stretch in them to be comfortable for hiking but did not stretch out and most importantly kept me warm!" —Aaron Arnold

    Get it from Amazon for $29.89+ (available in sizes XXS–3XL and in eight colors).

    13. A buffalo plaid poncho which is the only style that makes it totally acceptable to wear a blanket for a Michelin-style meal.

    Reviewer wearing the black/red/white buffalo plaid poncho

    Promising reviews: "I LOVE this!!! It is as thick as a wool blanket, nearly as soft as silk, yet still lightweight, warm, cozy! I work the graveyard shift at work in the High Plains so sometimes when I get off work early in the morning it can be as much as 50° colder than it was went I left for work! This is a great for me so I can have something in my bag to cover up with on those colder mornings!" —Elle

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).

    14. A comfy graphic pullover that will be the darling of your cold-weather wardrobe, purrfect for a low-key Sundate.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $16.99 (originally $19.99, available in sizes 0X–3X).

    15. A versatile quilted vest which can be thrown over your casual, workout (or, I-look-like-I-workout-but-don't-actually-workout) attire. And with a fancier turtleneck, jeans, and booties, this is perfect if you're heading to an outdoor event that requires a more ~elevated~ look.

    model wearing black vest

    Get it from Athleta for $138 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    16. A Levi's denim sherpa — a staple we *know* you've been eyeing for the past couple of winters. It's undeniably warm and an absolute classic that will not be going out of style anytime soon, so, how is it not in your wardrobe already?!

    Model wearing blue denim sherpa

    Promising review: "Great denim trucker jacket with sherpa lining for those chilly San Francisco days and nights. You can't beat the price too, the same jacket in the Levi's store was going for $128. Super comfortable materials and fits as expected. Roomy enough that you could add an additional layer like a thinner sweater, sweatshirt, or button-up shirt. Available in various denim colors as well. Just note the sherpa lining does not extend into the arm sleeves, it's padded with another material and the button closures are snaps and not eye hole types like the original vintage designs. Classic design that will never go out of style, I hope to own for many years to come." —O Wood

    Get it from Amazon for $58.50+ (available in sizes XS–6XL, regular, tall, big, and in 15 colors).

    17. A belted bouclé trench coat to breath new life into your outerwear if you're experiencing a wardrobe rut. This splurge-worthy piece is lined, heavier in weight, and will not only stop the weather from affecting you but you're guaranteed to receive looks worthy of a million compliments.

    Model wearing olive colored trench coat

    Get it from Nordstrom for $150 (available in sizes 2–12 and in three colors).

    18. A bodysuit for the perfect base layer that will act as your most stylish thermal yet. No more bunching up, tucking in, and re-tucking your tops when you just want a seamless, well-fitted look to go under a blouse, cardigan, or jacket., Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this bodysuit! Perfect fit. Body hugging — great material — not too thick and not too thin. Great alone for fall or layered for winter. I’m 5’10” and 135 pounds for reference, I bought a small and the length is 100% perfect. It fits exact in every way. If you’re taller size up because the snaps are just exact on me but a medium would have been too big. This is very flattering and very easy to dress up or down. It has some stretch width-wise and a little stretch length-wise." —Alana

    Get it from Amazon for $12.59+ (available in sizes 0-18 and in six colors).

    19. A knit scarf that will infinitely shield your neck from the icy winds. The circle design is long enough to be looped a couple times so you can nuzzle into it and not have to be concerned about it unraveling.

    Reviewer wearing red circle knit scarf

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic winter scarf! It's long enough to wrap around three times snugly, and not too long that if you only wrap it around twice, there's too much extra material dangling. This scarf has been my go-to for when the weather drops below 20 degrees this season. Another plus is that unlike almost all my other winter scarves, this one doesn't generate too much static in my hair. That always drives me nuts!" —Whitney P

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in sizes – and in seven colors).

    20. High-waisted plush leggings which will be your secret weapon for below freezing days. Paired under a dress with boots or with a chunky knit sweater, these will keep you extra toasty when you're on the go.

    model wearing black leggings

    Get it from Aerie for $39.95 (available in sizes XXS–XXL).

    21. A buttery soft turtleneck long-sleeved tee to trap in precious heat under the three layers you're already wearing — because the place you chose for dinner does not believe in heat lamps.

    Model wearing navy and white striped turtleneck
    Old Navy

    Get it from Old Navy for $18 (available in sizes XS–XXL regular, tall, petite, and in six colors).

    22. A thick open-front cardigan that is the perfect mid layer for your wintry outfit. Worn over a shirt and under a long-line coat, you'll feel toasty and look chic at the same time.,

    Get it from Amazon for $15.33+ (available in sizes 0–14 and in 14 colors).

    23. A long-sleeved turtleneck dress when you want to look cute but are sick of wearing pants just 'cus it's the winter. Pair this time-saving piece over knit tights and some over-the-knee boots for an outfit that won't make you late to your dinner date.

    Reviewer modeling the black dress

    Promising reviews: "This was the right combo of casual and dressy. I wore it to church partnered with a cardigan. I will likely wear without sweater on a date night because it def shows off your curves." —M. D. Holmes

    Note: this now sold out in black.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.70 (available in sizes 1X-7X).

    25. A hooded parka to shield you from the tundra as you walk toward your outdoor reservation. (And you won't have to take it off, either — just in case you don't get seated inside one of those igloos!)

    Model wearing the black parker coat
    Old Navy

    Get it from Old Navy for $75 (available in sizes XS–XL regular, big, tall and in two colors).

    26. A high-waisted flared winter skirt (with pockets!) so you don't have to forfeit your great style even when the temperature is freezing-degrees Fahrenheit.

    Promising review: "I was so impressed with this product — I have never been more satisfied with a clothing purchase on Amazon, ever. The cut prevents it from being scrunchy and bulky; it’s a heavy weight wool so perfectly warm for a winter skirt, it’s lined all the way down; the front waist is a solid band of fabric, it stays in place and doesn’t twist. I’m ordering more. Flattering cut no matter your size. So far the material hasn’t pilled (I have red plaid, it’s flown through two Christmas parties and an all day charity event with no fuzz of pilling). Fantastic purchase." —D

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 29 colors).

    27. A cotton cardigan for a simple yet refined way to layer and look ultra stylish: button it up over a basic henley or wear it open to show off a chambray shirt. The shawl collar is also guaranteed keep you extra warm and looking like Jude Law in The Holiday.

    Model wearing the grey cardigan

    28. Boot socks to wick away moisture, whether they're worn bundled up in boots all day or casually worn in cooler temps with sneakers. The patterns are cute enough to even peek out of cuffed pants!,

    Promising review: "These socks are great for hiking and other outdoor activities. They’re soft and comfortable. I thought they were too soft and flimsy when I first opened them up, but the fabric tightened up after the first wash (they did not shrink). Now they feel more durable while maintaining comfortability." —Vince

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $15 (available in eight colors).

    29. A fleece hoodie so you can layer up comfortably. Wear this under a long-line camel coat to achieve that super trendy and incredibly warm look we're all just striving for.

    Model wearing grey hoodie

    Promising review: "Wow!! All I can say is WOW! I am soooo picky with my hoodies. I like them warm, and soft, and not “cheap” looking. This hoodie is made so well that I ordered a second one, and now I am about to order a third! They fit so well and are very well made. I love the almost shiny look that they have. Best buy from Amazon brand yet!" —Crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $40.80 (available in sizes XS–1X and in six colors).

    30. Cable knit tech-friendly mittens for when you have to text your BFF that you can see your breath as you *patiently* wait for them because you can't be seated until the whole party has arrived.,

    Promising review: "These gloves are perfect! They are soft and super warm! I can easily use my cellphone while having these gloves on. Driving is not a problem either. They fit wonderfully! The touchscreen feature is great!" —Carla trahan

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (available in five colors) or a pack of two for $14.42.
