Yes, the queen to talk shows herself, Oprah Winfrey! But wait, what makes it so unique to even catch the eye of one of the most highly acclaimed fashionistas around?
Well, it promises warmth day in and day out thanks to its 600 fill power insulation. Ideally, the insulation forms a barrier that efficiently traps heat for hours while keeping the cold at bay. But the Lands’ End Down Coat does more than just keep you warm.
Because of its water resistant outer material, it repels water and continues to insulate your body even when it gets water. This down coat also comes with a detachable hood to protect your head from the cold. Also, the two-way zipper provides adequate venting so that you can move around freely.

First off, its glossy cire together with the chevron-styled quilting gives it a contemporary look with a fascinating, elevated finish – and that can only mean you’ll look trendy and hip. Also, the shiny outer cover gives the Talbots Puffer Vest an appealing polish with an added bit of individuality.
Do you own a turtleneck, a long sleeve tee or a sweater and are looking for a puffer vest that will make you look fashionable without necessarily appearing bulky? Well, the Talbots Chevron Quilted Puffer Vest could as well be the vest of choice thanks to its slimming front and back seams.
Wool and the Gang Zion Lion Pom

Verloop Trio Touchscreen Gloves
Gloves are indispensable during cold weather, and it’s almost impossible to make through the chilly weather with a pair. But, the chances are that you’ve lost one of the gloves and getting a new pair is always hectic. Besides, it means you will have to brave the cold weather until a replacement pair arrives (that is if you don’t have an extra one in the house).
The Verloop Trio Gloves seek to eliminate the need to get a new pair of gloves if you lose or misplace one glove. The gloves come in a set of three interchangeable gloves (that can be worn on either hand) so you can have your palms always protected.
