There’s nothing worse than finding yourself in a sudden cold snap, digging into your winter wardrobe and remembering that you needed to replace your ripped jacket or can’t find the clothes that still fit you.
Here are six winter wardrobe essentials you need to check to make sure you are stocked up on:
Making sure you have a warm coat during the winter months is a must. Right now, puffer jackets and thick flannels are the hot trend for both men and women. Outdoor clothing retailers are stocked full of plenty of heavy-duty thick, warm coats and jackets to choose from.
For the true outdoorsman/woman, find something with lots of pockets, an attached hood, and think about a longer cut to cover the butt. Nothing’s worse than a cold, wet butt when out for the day!
For the less avid outdoors adventurer, find something focused on looking a little more “cute,” comfy, and casual. Consider a coat with lambswool padding for the look, comfort, and functionality!
A nice hoodie is a closet staple for the winter. Hoodies are essential for all indoor and outdoor winter activities. They’re great for layering or wearing by themselves; providing a nice thick layer on the body and some head cover, if desired.
3. Weather-Proof Boots
Weather-proof boots are important, no matter what region you live in, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Getting a versatile boot for all weather conditions and outdoor activities is a convenient option so you do not have to decide which boots are appropriate or bring multiple pairs.
If you like hiking, hunting, fishing, or other outdoor hobbies that involve a lot of walking, look for a weather-proof boot that is comfortable and provides support. If you’re looking to add a little fashion to your footwear, a fur-lined boot is a nice option for you.
4. Hat or Beanie
The right hat or beanie during the wintertime is essential to keep your head and ears warm. The last thing you need is frostbite on your ears! Make sure you get a hat (or hats) that are the right size to adequately cover your head. Some the more “stylish” hats are more focused on fashion than functionality.
5. Long Sleeve Shirt
Long sleeves will help regulate your body temperature during the winter and, for the coldest months, add a bonus layer of warmth under your outer layers. When you get a little too hot from the outer layers, it’s also nice to still have a long sleeve shirt underneath, so you’re not going from extreme hot to extreme cold.
Big Daddy Long Sleeve Tees are lightweight and have UPF 50+ protection. Great for when it’s a little chilly, but you don’t need something too heavy. The Big Daddy Long Sleeve Tees are available in three colors: blue, yellow, and white.
6. Neck Gaiter
A neck gaiter can make all the difference when the wind is whipping in your face on a cold winter day. Neck gaiters can be worn over the mouth and face to help stay warm, block wind, and for overall protection.
Big Daddy’s quick-drying Neck Gaiter is a perfect, low-cost option.
