The Rankings

Old Navy Frost-Free Vest
Rank & Style Approved


Old Navy Frost-Free Vest

THE VEST: Best for those cool (but not cold) days, a quilted vest is a great option.

USERS SAID: "I love wearing these vests in the colder months because they aren’t as bulky as a big coat. This vest is very warm and fits great. I would definitely buy another one in another color." 

Blondo Velma Waterproof Riding Boot

THE WATERPROOF OTK BOOT: Smart fashionistas know to go for a waterproof boot on the coldest of winter days where trekking from train to office in the snow is unavoidable.

USERS SAID: "These are great boots– the waterproof factor here in New England is big, with me, especially if the boot is this stylish. I'm 5'6", and the front comes up just past the knee, and the calf fit is snug but comfy." 

Old Navy Blanket Scarf For Women

THE BLANKET SCARF: Wear this must-have alone on warmer winter days or wrap up tight with your wool coat on colder days where warmth around your neck and face is essential. 

USERS SAID: "This blanket scarf is so beautiful! Its big, thick and soft. Colors are vibrant. I'm so happy I got this as a gift. I almost with I had bought it for myself, shipper envy 100%" 

Halogen Long Sleeve Turtleneck

THE LAYERING TURTLENECK: Throw a vest, blazer or sweater on over this must-have for extra warmth on a cold, winter day.

USERS SAID: " Love it! Great for layering. It's a thin turtleneck but it's so perfect for what I was looking for. I just wanted it to layer seamlessly and it does just that." 

Tintoretta Fleece-Lined Leggings

THE FLEECE-LINED LEGGING: We all love a good legging but sometimes they just don't cut it on a cold, sub-zero degree day. Instead of a cotton legging, go for a warmer pair like these to keep you warm.

USERS SAID: "These leggings are beyond soft and sooo warm and cozy! They fit true to size and they have a wide yoga waistband for comfort. The inside are the softest, warmest, coziest fleece you've ever felt. They have the right amount of stretch to them as well." 

Old Navy Honeycomb-Knit Beanie for Women

THE BEANIE: Keep your head warm while still looking chic with this beanie from Old Navy.

USERS SAID: "Love this hat. This hat is so soft and perfect fitting. Definitely buying more in different colors."

Isotoner Women’s Spandex SmarTouch Chevron Gloves

THE TECH-FRIENDLY GLOVE: Keep your hands warm on the coldest of days, even if you must text your friend or check that email while outside. These gloves feature SmarTouch technology, allowing users to use their touch screen devices with the gloves on.

USERS SAID: "Isotoner Spandex will always be my favorite day-to-day gloves. The fit is great and the flexibility is comfortable. The chevron strips allow easy use to my electronic devices." 

Everlane The Cahsmere V-Neck Midi Dress

THE MIDI SWEATER DRESS: For days you wish to wear a dress but it just seem too cold, grab this midi-length sweater dress. Pair with opaque tights and boots for a fashionable day at work.

USERS SAID: "I love this dress. I'm 5' 4" and it hits just below the knee, and the v-neck is low enough to not be boring without being too low. Super comfy, still elegant dress." 

London Fog Wool Blend Detachable Faux Shearling Collar Trench Coat

THE WOOL COAT: Essential for a cold, winter day where you still want to look professional and polished, this long, wool coat will keep you warm.

USERS SAID: "LOVE this coat. It's heavy, quality made, keeps me warm and looks great with everything. The best coat I've ever had!" 

Loft Cowlneck Tunic Sweater

THE COWLNECK TUNIC SWEATER: Pair this sweater with your dark skinny jeans or fleece lined leggings and waterproof, over the knee boots for an adorable look.

USERS SAID: "Wore this on the first cold day of the year and can't wait to wear it again. Love it so much, I bought black and maroon. Great with jeans or leggings, I know I'll wear this all season long."
