The arrival of winter is often celebrated by some and lamented by others. Sure, winter means holiday feasts, the beginning of a new year, and much more, but it also comes with colder temperatures and blustery winds that will make you wish you could stay inside all season long. It also means busting out your heavy coats, piling on the layers before going outdoors, and giving your skincare routine a serious overhaul.
Whether you’re looking for all of the fashion and beauty items you need to get through the winter or just want to upgrade your current stock, we’ve got you covered. Keep your body warm and your skin soft with these finds that’ll help get you through this winter’s coldest days.
There are times when popping your hood over your head doesn’t do much to take away the chill of winter weather. For those days, a hat is pretty much a necessity, but it can be difficult to find one that’s both warm and fashionable.
This chunky knit beanie is super thick, so you’ll have no problems keeping your ears and head warm while you’re outdoors. It’s the perfect finishing touch to any winter outfit and is cute enough to be worn indoors or out.
Sometimes wearing gloves becomes more complicated than it should be. Gloves are often either too thin to provide you with any real warmth or they’re so thick that you actually have to take them off to pick things up without difficulty.
These gloves manage to give your hands the warmth they need during winter without being too thick, and the decorative ribbon makes them stand out from the rest. They also have touchscreen fingertips, so you’ll never have to expose your hands to the cold to use your phone.
On days when the temperature is extra low and the wind just won’t let up, you’ll need all the help you can get staying warm. A scarf can do the trick, and this one is extra soft and warm, perfect for layering up on cool days.
The scarf is also super long, so you can really bundle up or tie it in a variety of ways. The cable knit will also feel great against your skin, and it comes in two fun colors to go with any outfit.
There are some winter days when you can never have too many layers on, and even the thickest sweater doesn’t seem to keep the chill away. For times like these, a comfy oversized sweater will become your new best friend—and keep you from having to put your winter coat on inside the house.
This dolman sleeved cardigan is perfectly slouchy and oversized, so it can be thrown on top of any outfit for an extra bit of warmth. The soft, ribbed knit is extra cozy, making this a cardigan you’ll turn to all season long.
If you’re looking for a soft sweater that stands out from everything that’s currently in your closet, this is the one for you. Not only is it ultra soft, but it’s got sequined elbow patches sewn right in for a fun touch that you’ll want to show off.
This sweater is slightly oversized, making it perfect for layering over a tank top or t-shirt for a complete outfit. It’s also thin enough to be worn under your winter coat, giving you an extra layer of warmth before you head outside on the coldest days.
For days when you need a little extra warmth but don’t want to pile on a thick sweater, a sweater vest can do the trick. And don’t let the thought of a sweater vest make you think of something meant for a school uniform, because they don’t have to be frumpy.
This knit sweater vest will be the perfect topper to any style no matter where you’re headed—whether it’s to work, school, or a dinner out. The loose, open-front design gives it a little more of a casual feel, but it can still be dressed up with the right outfit.
Some people are able to get away with lighter coats during the winter depending on where they live, but many of us aren’t so fortunate. The cold weather can be pretty brutal in certain parts of the country, where you need a coat that can stand up to the cold and ice.
This jacket has everything you need to survive a brutal winter—fleece lining, cotton padding, waterproof fabric, and an adjustable hood. Get it for your family’s winter vacation to the ski lodge or just to stay bundled up when the fierce winter weather hits your town.
Not every winter day calls for a super heavy coat, but even those “warmer” days can still be pretty cold. For when you need something more than a sweater but less than a puffy coat, there’s the Better Sweater jacket from Patagonia.
This jacket is made with a fleece lining on the inside and a sweater-knit material on the outside, making it look and feel cozy all the way through. With handwarmer pockets, a mini zip pocket on one arm, and a pointed collar, this is the perfect lightweight jacket for when you don’t want to be quite as bundled up.
Looking for a winter coat that’s both warm and stylish? This toggle-front peacoat combines that classic peacoat style with a few interesting details that’ll make it a unique addition to your closet.
Though the toggles on this coat make it stand out, it can also be zipped closed for anyone who isn’t interested in buttoning it every time. The faux-fur trimmed hood adds an extra layer of protection from the cold, making it perfect for both mild and blustery winter days.
During the winter months, it’s no secret that your skin takes a beating. Sometimes the cold can be so rough on your face that it seems like you have to apply endless amounts of moisturizer to keep it from looking like you just exfoliated with sandpaper.
When it’s cold outside, skip your regular foundation and go for something a little lighter and more moisturizing, like this hydrating gel cream from bareMinerals. The formula will give you light coverage combined with a healthy-looking glow and packs in powerful moisturizers to protect your skin from the cold as you wear it.
You may not be planning a trip to the ski lodge anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look like you just spent an afternoon in the snow. Bring the best of the slopes to you with BECCA’s new Après Ski Glow palette, with highlighters, blushes, and a bronzer all inspired by the winter snow.
In addition to four shades that are already part of the BECCA lineup, this palette introduces a new blush and highlighter that are perfect for winter. There’s Winter Berry, a blush that’ll give you a perfect rosy-cheeked look, and Icicle, a shimmering, icy highlight with just a touch of winter blue.
When it comes to using a setting spray, the goal is often to mattify your entire makeup look to make it appear smooth and flawless. While there’s nothing wrong with that, using mattifying products in the winter will only make your skin more prone to dryness.
Whether you’re prepping your bare skin for the day or setting your makeup before you head out the door, switch out your normal spray for this hydrating mist that’s packed with aloe and rose water. It’ll give you the extra moisture you need to face the winter weather while helping to keep your makeup in place all day long.

It can be difficult to find the perfect winter body lotion—one that helps to hydrate and soften your skin but also absorbs easily and doesn’t leave behind an oily residue.

Not only that, but it won’t leave your skin feeling greasy—instead, it absorbs quickly and leaves behind a light, sweet scent that’ll last all day.
Our hands get exposed to the cold a lot during the winter, and it shows when they start getting raw and cracked. In fact, moisturizing at home often isn’t enough—you need something you can bring with you to keep your hands soft and protected throughout the day.
This L’Occitane hand cream is made with shea butter, coconut oil, honey, and almond extract, all combined to create a rich and creamy lotion that will help keep your hands soft and hydrated during the winter.
