7 Outerwear Staples Everyone Needs

7 Outerwear Staples Everyone Needs

At Lands' End, we understand you may just want your outerwear to do more than protect you from the elements. You also want it to look good on you and make a fashion statement. After all, people see your outerwear first when you arrive, so it’s part of your first impression. It’s also the last thing people see when you’re leaving, so it becomes part of the way others remember you. So, our collection of coats, jackets, vests, snow pants, and accessories can all enhance the way others see you while protecting you from cold, damp weather.

Warm Winter Coats

A warm winter coat is often the key outerwear garment people look for when preparing for cold weather. Our selection of the warmest winter coats includes jackets, parkas, and full-length coats to keep you warm when winter weather arrives. There are a number of features to consider when choosing a coat that’s just right for your needs. If you want a coat that fits snugly to keep cold air away from your back, consider one with an adjustable waist. Additionally, a coat that blocks out the wind and keeps water from absorbing into the fibers can be extra warm if you’re in a northern climate where it gets extremely cold.

Fleece Jackets

Looking for something lighter to keep you warm on mild winter days or to wear as a layer under a winter vest? Fleece jackets offer warmth but aren’t meant to be your only protection from extremely low temperatures. This can make a fleece jacket the perfect solution for chilly days in warmer parts of the country and for milder days. Fleece jackets come in a variety of colors, styles, and lengths, too. So, you can put together a casual, sporty look with a fleece hoodie, or go for an office-worthy look with a fleece blazer or pullover.

Winter Vests

If temperatures vary widely throughout the day in your area, women’s, kid’s, and men’s winter vests offer a great solution to keeping warm. You can wear a winter vest layered over a long sleeve shirt on milder days. Also, you can wear one under a winter coat for an extra cozy layer of warmth when it’s really cold. You can also find vests made from lighter materials, like fleece, for milder days, or down-insulated vests to keep you really warm when it’s extra cold.

Snow Pants

Outerwear isn’t just available for the upper body. To keep your legs warm, too, check out the selection of snow pants. These outer-layer pants come in bib styles and regular waist-high cuts. Look for materials that are water and wind resistant as well as design features like zipper pockets to help keep your things safe.

Rain Jackets

Live in a rainy part of the country? Or, do you just need to keep dry when an occasional rainy day arrives? Rain jackets are one possible solution. Browse through the selection of women’s rain jackets to find one that’s right for your needs. These jackets come in styles rated warmer and warmest. If you need protection from rain and mild warmth, the selection of warmer-rated jackets delivers the gentle warmth you need. For colder climates, rain jackets rated warmest offer the most protection from both dampness and bitter cold. Plus, these jackets come in a variety of styles, lengths, and colors to accommodate your personal style.

Winter Boots

If your feet get wet and cold, it can make your whole body feel cold. That’s why a great pair of winter boots is an essential staple for every winter wardrobe. Choose boots in a casual or dressy style to match your winter wardrobe. For example, pair casual boots with a casual jacket, and choose dressy boots to pair with your dress coat. Additionally, if you have a brightly colored winter coat, consider choosing winter boots in a matching color to complete your look.

Winter Accessories

Looking for a way to top off your winter outerwear with as much style as the rest of your wardrobe? Choose from the selection of winter accessories to find hats, gloves, and scarves that add a fabulous touch of style to your winter look. These items are available for men, women, and children, so you can easily find the right accessories for everyone in your family. Additionally, you can choose from vibrant, playful color schemes and classic, elegant styles to get just the look you want while choosing accessories to keep you and your family warm and comfortable. Browse through the selection of outerwear and accessories to find something for everyone in the family. Choose heavy coats or lightweight jackets for protection from cold weather. For deep cold, add warm, waterproof extras, like snow pants and winter boots. Plus, add some accessories, like gloves, hats, and scarves for a touch of style that also delivers a touch of warmth when temperatures drop.
