My Top Places to Shop for Warm Clothing

The weather has gotten increasingly colder in Dallas these past few weeks, and I’m not mad at it. It’s making me so excited for the holidays, and I love finally getting to bring all my sweaters out from the back of my closet again. It can be kind of hard to shop for some cold-weather clothes, though – especially if you’re traveling somewhere much colder, or just don’t have as many warm pieces as you want. Luckily, I’m an avid impulse shopper, and have compiled some of my favorite places to get affordable yet good-quality clothing for Fall/Winter, especially with this chilly pre-Spring temperature we are experiencing.


H&M is a great place for basics. They have tons of great knit sweaters, turtlenecks, and basic long-sleeved shirts for layering. I’d recommend their Oversized Turtleneck, or any of their knit cardigans!

Cotton On

I’ve recently discovered Cotton on, and while all their sweaters are very cute, I’d especially recommend them for all your jacket needs. Whether you want a Sherpa, puffer coat, or longer wool coat, they have so many options. They also have some very comfy-looking sweatpants!  


Regardless of the slight confusion we all inevitably feel when navigating the Zara website, they do have some great coats! Their fleece jackets are great. Another slightly random-yet-useful item I’d make sure to check out is their tights. These are great if you’re going out but still want to wear a dress or skirt. They have a few different styles, all for $17.90.


One of my favorite pastimes is raiding the target sale section. You’re pretty much guaranteed to find some good winter basics here, including cardigans and sweatpants!

Thrift Stores

I know this is a nebulous category, but I’ve always found some of my favorite unique pieces at thrift stores. You never know what you’ll get there! Depop is also great- I just bought a cute long-sleeved top and sweater there. 


Madewell is pricey, but if you have some savings that you’re willing to drop on a good-quality pair of jeans, I’d highly recommend them. They’re mad of real denim so they last a long time and will go great with a sweater and some boots! 

Figuring out how to transition from Summer to Fall and Winter weather can be tricky, especially when the seasons fluctuate like they do in Dallas. The key is to get good staple items, and things that you can layer with for when the weather is much colder in the morning, but warmer later in the day. Happy shopping!
