Must-Have Winter Clothes and Accessories

*This post contains affiliate links

Oh, winter!  How I hate winter.  I went 4 winters without experiencing a real winter when I lived in Las Vegas and I will tell you that I didn't miss it one bit.  The cold, the snow, the slush... all of it I don't enjoy.  But I'm back in Michigan now and I need to accept it.  I grew up with winter and so I know how to handle it.  

There are a few things that help me survive the winter months in Michigan.  Having a garage to park my car, an auto-start on my car, and having winter appropriate clothes.  I'm a happier person when I'm warm and comfortable in the winter, so having the proper winter clothes and accessories are the best way to get me through the cold winter months. 

Here are my 5 must-have winter clothes and accessories! 

Faux-fur hooded coat

I love a cozy faux-fur hooded coat! The fur keeps my face nice and warm, plus they just have a really cute winter style to them.  My favorite winter coat that I own is from Gap Factory.  It is the perfect everyday winter coat!

Snow Boots

The first thing I knew I needed in Michigan would be winter boots.  You need something warm, something waterproof, and something cute.  My snow boots from JustFab fit all 3 of those requirements and I just love them!  I also bought a pair of duck boots this year on Poshmark as a backup winter boot to wear in the slushy wet weather.

Long wool coat

When I want to step up my outfits in the winter I wear my long wool coat.  It's so warm and I love that its full length.  You can wear it with a dress or just wear it with some jeans and it will definitely dress up your look. 


Turtlenecks

I hate it when my neck gets cold.  I find scarves to be harder to wear these days, so I really love a good turtleneck in the winter.  They keep my neck warm and they are super cozy.

Hats

The best way to keep yourself warm in the winter is to cover your head.  I love wearing hats.  I prefer beanie hats and baseball caps.  I haven't jumped on the Carhartt hat trend yet, but I know that they look like they will do a good job of keeping you warm.  My favorite winter hats have come from the dollar spot section at Target.  Check for them in the late fall.  That's usually when they have them.

  1. I have not experienced the frigid winter that you have but I can agree that these are all winter essentials. I love my duck boots and something I have grown to like in the past two years are hats. I am not big on them but when you are trying to stay warm, they are a life saver! I hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday!
