Please, don’t be that guy. You know, the one who swears by his cargo shorts in the dead of winter; the one who “doesn’t get cold.” Beyond the permanent threat of frostbite, adverse weather can wreak all sorts of havoc on the temple that is your body if you’re not careful to protect yourself for wintery conditions. There’s nothing manly or cool about freezing your ass off — you just look like a dork.
And it’s not like there aren’t options, either. From the mittens grandma knit you to designer cashmere scarves, gear for beating the unquestionably worst season exists in more or less every form, including some downright stylish offerings. Like any good accessory, the cold-weather add-on is a total sartorial game changer. Sure, you could pick up a cheap-o beanie from your local dollar store, but as we are with most things, we at InsideHook are a little more particular about our winter accessories.
We’ve pulled some of our favorites here, from berets to balaclava to beanies to buffs, all in an attempt keep you comfortable, protected and warm this winter. Browse our picks for best cold-weather accessories below, and remember, bundle up!
