In cooler weather, it’s all about finding clothing and accessories that stand up to the elements and are also stylish.

Here are some great, functional must-have accessories to keep you looking great and feeling warm.

Texting While Warm

This winter, you don’t need to resort to fingerless gloves or no gloves at all to be able to use your smartphone while outdoors. Continue to text, update your Instagram and orient yourself without letting your fingers go numb by using gloves with touchscreen capability. Available in a number of styles and materials, from athletic to cute to sophisticated, staying fully functional in subfreezing temperatures has never been so easy.

Toasty Toes

Whether you are off to work in casual business attire or lounging around the house in jeans, stylish socks that hold up during long days are a must in winter. Along with your hands, you’ll want your feet to stay warm in cooler temperatures, so don’t compromise on quality.

For men’s casual crew socks, the GOLDTOE brand’s Harrington collection are a great choice, as they feature innovative AquaFX Responsive Cotton, which offers moisture management and wicking capabilities to provide long lasting comfort. The brand’s Oh.So.Soft. line, women’s socks made of ultra soft yarns, are available in an assortment of colors and are nice for lounging around the house or for busy days on-the-go.

Foolproof Neck Warmer

Don’t let a windy day leave your throat exposed to the elements. While regular scarves are prone to unravel or even fall off on a blustery day, an “infinity scarf” is the best way to keep your neck protected no matter what blows your way. Unlike a traditional scarf that is a long piece of fabric, an infinity scarf is a full loop that closes and can be wrapped multiple times. Not just a passing trend, these scarves are easier to wear and harder to lose.

This winter, there is no need to sacrifice comfort or style. Both can be had with the right accessories.
