The weather here in Toronto has exactly what you would expect – cold and will only be getting colder. I wanted to offer a few cold weather clothing recommendations to keep you warm and stylish. I’m talking about coats, mittens, hats, and boots. You need all of these things to survive a typical Canadian winter.
Noize Coats – They offer environmentally conscious and cruelty-free unique seasonal collections and accessories. Noize designs rival those right off the runway from New York to Milan, they’re also conscious of the overwhelming damage to our planet caused by animal-derived materials. Their vegan furs and leather alternatives are equal in warmth, comfort and style — all without harming defenceless animals or wasting essential resources we all need to thrive. I have two Noize Coats and my daughter has two as well. Sonya, on our team, has four (?!) They also offer vegan fur, vegan wool, and vegan leather coats. A great brand that can build your coat wardrobe. I am focusing on parkas and puffers because it is getting cold and I want you to be stylish. And just in case you’re interested, they’ve also introduced a line of outerwear for dogs this year that are both stylish and functional.

Kombi Accessories – This family owned company was founded in 1961 in the city of Montreal. Their mission is to keep winter loves of all kinds warm from heat to toe. Best known for their carefully crafted gloves and mitts. They’ve since extended their warmth expertise to base layers, socks, hats, and cold weather accessories. They can outfit your entire family and their smart designs are infused with fashion and their products make the perfect gifts for the entire family. I have four children with ages ranging from 10 to 16 and they all like Kombi accessories. They have a cool factor and they keep the kids warm. I am showcasing my favourite items for us ladies. These picks range from items you wear running errands, running, skiing, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Cougar Boots – Another Canadian family-owned business that began making shoes in a converted parachute plant in 1948. Cougar bas become a staple here in Canada with distribution around the globe. Cougar uses special tanning and waterproofing techniques with advanced cushioning technology to make sure your shoes are comfortable and long-lasting. Their Original Pillow Boot (here) is my favourite winter boot. My husband wore them as a child and my daughter and I wear the style now. A true Canadian classic. I’ve curated a few of my favourite boots to keep your toes warm and your style hot.
