Our Favorite Winter Fabrics to Keep You Warm

Winter clothes are designed to keep you warm in the frigid cold temperatures. So winter is the time when some of our favorite fabrics become the centerpiece of your wardrobe, fabrics that don't make an appearance until you can see your breath in the air. Here are our favorite winter fabrics to keep you warm.


Flannel is one of the coziest winter fabrics, and it makes the perfect material for warm robes and pajama pants for lounging around inside. But flannel isn't just for sleepwear. Flannel shirts are the perfect winter staple and can be dressed up when paired with khaki dress pants or dressed down with jeans and your favorite pair of boots. This plaid flannel shirt from Chaps makes the perfect example.


Wool sweaters have been a winter necessity for centuries. Wool is not only warm, but it's also sophisticated and classic and can take any outfit up a level. Take, for instance, this crew neck sweater from Polo. This sweater worn over a holiday plaid shirt would make the perfect outfit for a holiday party or gathering.


When it comes to softness, nothing beats fleece. A zip-up fleece sweatshirt, like this one from Surfside Supply, is the perfect piece to wear in the cold weather while running errands or doing yard work. Not only is fleece extremely warm, but it's also lightweight as well, making it great for outdoor cold weather activities like hiking or hunting.


Cotton isn't just for the spring and summer. This durable, hypoallergenic material makes for great layering pieces like t-shirts. Long sleeve cotton tees are always a great choice if you tend to overheat easily under the warmth of winter coats or jackets.
