I'm a man with no fashion sense (maybe that's redundant?), but in winter I always throw on wool. I have wool mittens, wool socks, wool sweater, wool hat that Mom knit me... I have one pair of mittens that are going on 18 years, even wet they still are warmer than any gloves I've ever owned.

don't live in deep cold area..but I get cold regardless. Got a pair of Keen Betty Boots a couple years ago which keep my feet very toasty. Found alot of people use them snowshoeing. I really want a Cowichan (sp) sweater and down coat.

Don't laugh, but it was 40 degrees this morning and I wore my pjs, with a thick sweatshirt with hoodie over that, pj bottoms with big sweat pants over that, and a huge down coat from LL Bean, gloves, wool hat and was still cold! It just got cold here and it takes me a couple of weeks to get adjusted. I'm a size 4 to 6 but I looked like a blimp this morning in all my padding. Once it snowed and iced over here. I was out walking Toby and slipped and fell flat on my behind- all captured on the neighborhood security cameras . I didn't feel a thing thanks to that bubble wrap, so I guess it comes in handy at times!

To me - nothing beats polar fleece for warmth. Long sleeved cotton T-shirt, plus a polar fleece top (from Lands End or LL Bean) and a down coat (to the knee, with a hood). That's the only way I stay warm. I also have thermal socks and good boots. Warm feet and covered head are key to me in the bitter cold.

But polar fleece for sure. It many not be the best for fashion, but it is the best for warmth!!

Smart wool now makes wool tights you can wear under your pants. My favorite walking pants are Sporthill brand. They are sold through REI and LL Bean. I have the subzero pants and wear my Smart wool tights underneath and I'm good to go. Also Lands End at Sears sells wonderful down coats for cheap. I do wool and down all winter. Always a good combination in dry cold weather. For shoes I wear winter running shoes that are insulated. Smart wool also makes very nice wool caps too. Enjoying the weather with our pups is what its all about!

Like others have said, wool is the key! I have smartwool socks or woolly boolies (something like that) for my feet and warm boots with good grips since with cold comes ice. I have silk long underwear I wear under my flannel-lined jeans or I wear my cold weather running pants that are wind-proof and insulated. For top, I have a wool undershirt then various fleece long sleeved shirts ( some with a fleece hood). Over top of that, I either layer a thicker fleece sweatshirt or a cotton hoodie. Never ever wear cotton or denim next to your skin. Finally, over that, I usually wear a down parka. I have a few short ones and a long one that goes to my knees.

Outerwear: a fleece neckwarmer (less constricting than a scarf), a wool toque (I scored a wool toque lined with fleece last winter - love it!), and heavy duty gloves. when it's real cold, I wear mitts!

All that will keep me warm down to -30ish or so. After that, I don't walk Ranger. He's too cold - even with booties and a jacket - and I'm worried about frostbite!
