Hybrid Down Ultra Warm Coat

Uniqlo uniqlo.com

$179.90

Like wrapping your biggest blanket around your body, but even warmer, this premium down-filled coat from Uniqlo delivers maximum warmth with minimalist style. 

Insulated padding and an aluminum liner increase heat retention, while AIRTECH fabric on the outside creates a soft-touch finish. Designed for Japanese snowboarder Aymu Hirano yet styled for the city, this versatile piece of outerwear is a winning bet for mid-winter conditions everywhere.

Rib Cashmere & Silk Beanie

BEAMS PLUS nordstrom.com

$180.00

When it comes to headwear, less is certainly more. Especially in terms of beanies. This 75-percent cashmere, 25-percent silk, ribbed knit beanie from a legendary Japanese brand is classic, comfortable, and easily paired with just about anything in your closet. 

HEATTECH Extra Warm Turtleneck

Uniqlo uniqlo.com

$29.90

A turtleneck is a serious power move. Both functional and sophisticated, this version from Uniqlo is 1.5 times warmer than regular HEATTECH, thanks to insulated brushed fabric. It’s also anti-microbial and self-deodorizing, so you’ll feel fresh even if you’re prone to sweat. 

Wear it on its own with your favorite jeans for a more casual vibe, or under a sweater or blazer for something more polished. Either way, it’s the easiest way to (subtly) flex on all your friends and coworkers this season. 

Black Sherpa Ron Mid Loafers

Suicoke ssense.com

$173.00

If your bottom dresser drawer is teeming with rare, Japanese-made wool socks, these waterproof suede loafers make the perfect pairing. A pull-loop at the heel makes for easy on and off, and a bonded, jersey-trim collar that traps heat. Plus, antibacterial sherpa lining means slipping into them barefoot isn’t out of the cards, should all your prized socks be in the laundry.

Sun & Waves Cardigan

FAHERTY nordstrom.com

$398.00

This alpaca-blend wool knit cardigan takes design cues from scenic Peruvian landscapes (bet you wish you were there right now).  True to size, this sweater is a solid layering piece and the perfect way to step outside your usual monochromatic winter palette. 

Hunter Plaid Cozy Pant

D’emploi demploi.studio

$220.00

When the style name has “cozy” in it, you know you’re in the right territory. Made by hand in Brooklyn from thick, brushed wool, these hunter-plaid trousers take inspiration from American military fatigues from the 1950s and feature two front patch pockets and a hefty 2-inch hem at the ankle. Bonus points: An elastic waistband makes them holiday dinner-ready. 

Puffer Scarf

Nordstrom Men’s Shop nordstrom.com

$37.12

Layering season means many opportunities to incorporate new silhouettes and experiment with accessories. Sure, the scarf is as old as time—but a down scarf? It’s not exactly edgy, but it’s just different enough to attract some admiring eyes. And it’ll keep you supremely warm. 

Fleece Full-Zip Jacket

Uniqlo uniqlo.com

$24.90

No winter wardrobe is complete without a go-to fleece. The cozy staple works with just about any outfit scenario–from a hoodie and sweats to a button-down shirt and pleated trousers–and will keep you toasty and snug against that winter chill. Think of it as a wearable version of your favorite throw blanket.
