Go-To Basics and Base Layer for Winter

Go-To Basics and Base Layers for Winter

Headed outdoors to play in the snow with your children or to get some winter chores done outside? On a chilly winter day, warm winter basics and a comfortable base layer from Lands’ End offer you plenty of protection from the elements. Keep warm in style with winter outerwear, footwear, and accessories. Plus, be sure to layer up - starting with a cozy base layer - when temperatures drop below freezing.

Warmest Winter Coats

On a cold day, it's hard to beat the feeling of snuggling into one of our warm winter coats. Even better, you have a lot of options when it comes to styles and how much warmth you need your coat to offer. Both hip length and maxi length winter coats offer plenty of warmth. Plus, both lengths look equally great with jeans or leggings for a casual look, or with dress pants or even a skirt for a more elegant effect. Some other winter coat styles to consider include packable coats that can be tucked in your bag or glove box and lightweight jackets to wear on milder days.

Winter Vests

A winter vest can add versatility to your winter wardrobe while showcasing your personal style. Vests look especially stylish when layered over a soft sweater or hoodie. On mild winter days, you can wear a cozy vest instead of a heavy coat for warmth. On extra cold days, you can wear a winter vest as a layer under your warmest winter coat for an extra cozy effect. Look for features like directional quilting that adds visual appeal and down insulation for plenty of warmth. Some other features to consider include water-resistant and wind-resistant materials to keep you warm and dry when storms arrive, and quilted styles for eye-catching appeal.

Winter Snow Boots

Keeping warm in winter means more than just slipping into a warm coat. You need to keep your feet warm, too, and stylish winter snow boots can keep your feet warm and dry. Try a pair of ankle-high or mid-calf winter boots for a dressy effect or for a fun, casual look. These boots are available in solid, neutral colors, like beige, gray, and black for a style that goes with any outfit. Or you can pick colorful insulated boots that offer plenty of warmth along with a playful pop of color.

Warm Socks

Whether you’re bundling up to go out in the snow or enjoying a day at home, warm socks can help keep your feet feeling great. Boot socks can help your feet stay dry and warm if you’re heading out into the elements. If your feet tend to get sweaty, antimicrobial socks can help control odors so your feet feel fresh all day. While any of our soft, warm winter socks are great for days you spend at home, slipper socks can offer an extra touch of coziness - along with playful colors and patterns - to keep your feet happy.

Winter Accessories

With your body and feet protected from the cold with cozy, stylish outerwear, it’s a great time to shift your focus to your extremities, like your hands and head. That means choosing winter accessories that coordinate with your other winter gear. Add a lined hat to keep your head extra warm, and a scarf or neck gaiter to keep chilly air away from your neck and chin. Gloves or mittens? Which is your style? The selection of gloves and mittens include plush warm lined options and gloves you can wear while using a touchscreen device.

Fleece and Sweaters

Sweaters and fleece tops are winter go-to garments that are comfy to wear as standalone tops or as layers. If you’re putting together a casual outfit, look for a fleece top in a classic style. For a dressier look to wear to the office or a gathering, check out fleece tops with updated design elements, like tulip hemlines and quarter-zip collars. If a sweater feels more like your style, try a soft solid-colored turtleneck, a patterned cardigan, or a textured pullover to complete your look.

Base Layer

The base layer may be the last go-to winter garment on this list, but it’s just as important as all the others. The base layer rests against your skin and helps you stay warm whether it’s under other layers or you’re wearing it as your only top paired with leggings. Our selection of thermal shirts that serve as a base layer come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns. You can choose one with a high collar or scooped neckline to wear under a cozy flannel and a packable down vest. Or you can pick one that’s decorated with a bold pattern to create a fun look that’s also extra cozy and warm.

You can combine style with comfort and warmth when you choose go-to basics for winter from the selection of outerwear and accessories from Lands’ End. Need warm things for your whole family?
