Winter Fashion Survival Guide

Keep looking cute when the temperatures drop with stylish but functional winterwear.

These items also make great gifts if you’re still on the hunt for last-minute ideas.

Hot Heads

Whether you call it an infinite scarf or a snood, this versatile piece (at right) can be worn as a scarf, hood, or combination of the two, protecting you from those bitter north shore winds.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Knit Snood, $124, Neiman Marcus

Warm Hands

The 21st century glove keeps your fingers covered while still allowing you to use your touch screen gadgets. We like these shearling, cashmere-lined versions with grippy pads on the thumb and index fingers.

Ugg Tech Gloves, $95, Nordstrom


Cozy Toes

We love our wellies for protecting us from nasty snow and slush, but non-insulated boots make for frigid feet. The solution? Fleece inserts fit inside your galoshes and keep those piggies piping hot.

Hunter Fleece Welly Socks, $30, Nordstrom

Toasty Torsos

A wool blend camisole keeps your core warm no matter how much temperatures plummet. Wear under sweaters, cardigans, dresses and jackets to stave off chilly drafts.

Snug Ears

Pick up a pair of furry muffs to fend off ear frostbite. Cute, soft, and best of all, no hat head or hair static!

Knit/Rabbit Fur Ear Muffs, $42, Lori’s

Sizzling Legs

Just because it’s cold, it doesn’t mean we have to forgo dresses for four months. Wool tights are a must-have for every stylishly savvy North Shore gal. In addition to extending skirt-wearing season, tights make a great layer beneath pants on truly bitter days.
