7 cold weather accessories to keep you cozy


No joke, nurses, it’s cold out there! But while we can’t change the weather conditions for you (sorry!), we can help you in your quest to find the warmest gear available for nurses. Check out this winter-appropriate wear that you can add to your work wardrobe to eliminate some of your chills. Stay safe out there!


Since the hospital probably won’t let you wear fleecy boots to work this winter (or, uh, ever), your best bet for protective and warm footwear is sneakers. Safely encased in warm socks and laced up, your feet will be as warm and toasty as possible on the job. (Cherokee)



Colder temps call for higher socks, so it’s definitely time to break out some tall ones. While you’re at it, you might as well stock up on bright, colorful options that will at least remind you of sunny days to come. (Cherokee)



This Dickies version of a snap front warm-up jacket features dogs all over it. Just think of all the warmth you’ll acquire thinking about snuggling up next to a cute pup!



This jacket comes in solid colors and features a zipper instead of snaps. It also has two patch pockets, a right side pocket with an I.D. loop, back yoke, back princess seams for a slimming fit and matching knit cuffs. (Cherokee)



Yet another version of a snap front warm-up jacket! This one also comes in tons of colors and features a smart crew neck, along with front and back princess seams, patch pockets, a cell phone pocket with a button tab detail and a back belt. (Dickies)



This long sleeved top by Dickies features a screen printed logo at the sleeve, shirttail front and back. The back is also longer than the front for extra coverage.



This one is for the guys, made with a performance knit mesh fabric that keeps unwanted moisture away from the body. It also features a Dickies logo screen printed on the left sleeve hem.
