While we were fortunate enough around here to enjoy a bit of an extended summer, the snow is finally starting to fall and winter is most definitely on its way. It’s time to bust out the boots and unpack the parkas! Winter in Canada is serious business and if you’re not prepared, chances are you won’t last long outside.
Lucky for you, I’ve compiled a wonderful (and might I add, stylish) list winter wear that will not only keep you warm, but will turn heads as well.
First and foremost, it’s all about the jacket. The Övik Eco-Shell Parka (1) by Fjällräven is not only flattering, it’s functional and practical as well. It’s wind and water resistant, which is great if you live in an area that perhaps gets more rain than snow, and with loads of pockets it can keep all your valuables safely tucked away. Plus, it looks light enough to layer; I always layer up in the winter with sweaters and shirts, so the Övik Eco-Shell Park will allow layers without extra bulk. (Of course, Fjällräven has an amazing variety of other styles that will keep you warm without extra layers.)
Next, the Fjällräven Kiruna Beanie (2) will keep your head warm when the temperature starts to drop. Also from Fjällräven, the High Coast Top LS W (3) will keep you warm AND dry while outside. (Shovelling snow is serious business, and I always manage to bust a sweat even when it’s cold outside.)
I love, LOVE leggings, but they’re not always the warmest in the winter months. Luckily, lululemon has their Wunder Under Pant III (4), which is brushed and fleece-like on the inside to keep your legs warm.
To keep your hands warm, I spotted these Sooo Cold Mittens (5) while in the bookstore the other day and fell in love with them. They’re super cute and warm to boot, and I’m pretty sure they’d keep your fingers frostbite-free.
Finally, it’s all about (aboot?) the boots! A staple in any Canadian’s shoe closet, a solid winter boot should keep your feet warm and dry, and thanks to these Sorel Caribou Boots (6), they don’t have to be hideous. Waterproof and rated to -40°C/F weather you’ll have no problems dashing through the snow.
So there you have it, my lovelies! I’d love to add any one of those items to my winter clothing arsenal, how about you?
What are some of your winter staples?
