Winter Apparel to Keep You Warm

Brrr, it’s been cold out there! This New Year brought the usual celebrations, resolutions and an unexpected polar vortex. Luckily, January is a great month to take advantage of close-out sales, so if you’re in need of some cold weather apparel or accessories, you’re in luck. To get you started, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite deals and steals:

Winter Apparel to Keep You Warm

The belief that 40-45 percent of your body heat is lost from your head has been debunked – in reality, it’s closer to 10 percent – but it’s still important to keep your noggin warm during the winter months. The AEO Metallic Knit Beanie, which is on sale at American Eagle for $11.99, combines fashion and function with its slouchy fit and eye-catching metallic sheen. For a more weather-resistant hat, check out the Power Stretch Beanie at Eddie Bauer. It’s on sale for $19.99 and features wind- and abrasion-resistant Polartec fabric.

If you’ve gotten caught in cold or windy weather without a scarf, you know how much you miss one. Don’t let your neck go exposed- invest in a thick scarf like the Chunky Cowl Scarf from Gap , on sale for $31.46. The REI Rib-Knit Cable Infinity Scarf is another good pick at $37.93. It’s extra-long, so you can loop it around your neck multiple times.

Before you step out into the cold, put on a pair of gloves to keep your fingers toasty. These luxurious Cashmere Short Gloves are on sale for $54.99, and Ann Taylor is offering an extra 50% off on all sale styles. If you prefer keeping your fingers free, these exquisite Dyani Arm Warmers from Anthropologie will still keep your arms and palms warm. They’re on sale for $59.95.

A sturdy, warm coat is your best friend in cold weather. Check out Burlington Coat Factory for great deals on name brand coats. For example, the Herringbone Belted Coat, which usually sells for $160, is just $79.99 right now. French Connection has a significant number of coats on sale right now, too. The chic Tulip Coat with Leather Trim offers a pop of color for $299.99, down from $325.

Lastly, if it’s maximum warmth you seek, take a look at the Annapurna Jacket, which features lightweight, compressible PrimaLoft One insulation. It’s on sale for $132.93 at REI.

Stay warm!

Give the seasoned hostess a chic cocktail tray, such as S2’s studded leather trays ($79 for 2 at One King’s Lane) to add a pop of panache to her next get-together.

We think Kowlita’s bold typography prints ($21 on; hurry, sale ends in 2 days!) is the perfect present for anyone who hearts NYC. Our favorite is the Nolita print, reminiscent of the days when we lived on the Bowery (sigh).

He’ll be charmed with this cheeky wallet by Jack Spade (on sale for $62), crafted of fine-grain calfskin and designed to keep the modern bankroller’s cheddar (bones, clams, whatever) neatly tucked away.
