13 cold-weather essentials you need this winter

Winter started only just days ago, and cities everywhere are reaching historically below-freezing temperatures. In my city, the temperature reached a record-breaking -6 degrees. And I was not prepared whatsoever. I would usually cancel any plans to stay home in my bed. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get away from my responsibilities this time. As soon as I walked outside, I immediately regretted it as the cold wind chill hit my bare face. I saw others in the streets look unfazed by the cold weather with their ski masks and oversized scarves. I couldn’t help to think that I should have planned my outfit out so much better.

So, I rushed home and got online to find the best cold-weather items essential for staying extra warm this winter. This cold weather is not letting up anytime soon, so I am buying these items ASAP. This list has everything from long johns to hand warmers that will make it so much easier to go outside this winter. You won’t have to stay trapped in your house to avoid the cold weather in the new year. Also, if you know someone struggling this winter, these items will be a wonderful late-Christmas gift to donate to your local shelters!

This jacket has always been on my wish list for so long. It will not only keep you super warm, but you will look extra stylish too! It is always great to have a quality coat for the winter season.

Melrose and Market Metallic Chunky Knit Scarf – $25

I recently bought a scarf from this brand at Nordstrom Rack, and it’s so warm! It looks stylish with any outfit. Unfortunately, the one I have is sold out, so I found another one that is just as great. Oversized scarves will make such a difference in staying warm this winter.

Melrose and Market Everyday Ribbed Beanie – $10

Here is a matching beanie from the same brand that will match the scarf perfectly. I was always against wearing hats (mainly because of my hair), but now I refuse to leave the house without one!

One problem I always have with my winter gloves is that I constantly take one glove off so I can use my phone. With these gloves, this will no longer be an issue! These were made to use your touch screen easily while staying warm in the cold weather.

Most Heat Sox Thermal Insulated Socks – $23

One of the worst things about winter is stepping into the brutally cold snow. My feet always feel ice cold as soon as they touch the ground, whether wearing boots or sneakers. These thermal socks protect your feet more than cotton socks ever could. They are a must-have!

Lastly, this hoodie is another cold-weather must-have! This is a perfect way to add even more warmth as an extra layer under your coat. I always wear my hoodies oversized for extra comfort!
