Winter is coming, the polar vortex is, too, and our nation's supply of L.L. Bean duck boots has reached a critical low. But there's no need to panic: here, we've rounded up the city's best stores for stocking up on hats, gloves, scarves, snow boots, and anything else you might need to turn your winter coat into an impenetrable warmth-fortress.

UGG Australia

Copy Link
Okay, so it's not 2004. But can you point to a warmer, comfier footwear option out there? Refresh your neutral-toned pair this season at the Madison Avenue location (and don't forget to use that waterproof spray) and you're set for snowy bodega runs through the spring thaw. Also, ogle Tom Brady ads while shopping. [Photo]

Steven Alan - Chelsea

Copy Link
Steven Alan has been slowly expanding its accessories selection, and the designer’s shops are currently stocked with wool bucket hats, knit ‘glittens,’ and vibrantly patterned alpaca scarves. Stop by during one the brand’s sample sales to score serious discounts (like, $10 leather gloves)—winter accessories are often the best deals at the event. [Photo]

Patagonia

This is where you go when you are no longer messing around. Go up to a sales associate, ask "Hey, so...what gloves do you wear if you're, like, camping in the Arctic?" and they will tell you. [Photo]
Sorel’s Chelsea pop-up—the Canadian boot brand’s first-ever brick and mortar location—is open through February 2015. Styles range from stealth snow boots (like waterproof wedge booties secretly lined with fleece) to full-on, Arctic explorer stompers. [Photo: Sorel]

Sperry Top-Sider Store

L.L. Bean’s duck boots may be impossible to come by at the moment, but Top-Sider carries a total doppelgänger, as well as glossy black, vibrant pink, and preppy plaid versions of the waterproof style. [Photo]

Joe Fresh

This Canadian fast fashion chain is our go-to for cheap cashmere beanies and gloves—both of which will run you between $40 and $50, depending on the style. [Photo]
House line A.OK turns out unfussy winter add-ons, like slouchy neon beanies and plaid scarves with arm holes for fancy draping. [Photo: Oak]

UNIQLO Soho

Uniqlo’s ultra-thin puffer vests and jackets are perfect for adding an extra, insulating layer between you and your winter coat. They’re amazingly light and can roll up and fit in a work tote like it’s NBD. [Photo: Uniqlo]

No. 6 Store

Copy Link
No. 6 is known for its clogs, but the Soho shop also sells excellent, fully-fleece-lined clog-boots that are just as warm as any Ugg (although slightly more difficult to walk in). This winter, owner Karin Bereson has also stocked up on furry mittens, woolen beanies, giant scarves, and knit cashmere bandanas. [Photo: Driely S. for Racked]

Century 21 Department Store

Copy Link
Century 21 is great for all kinds of winter accessories, really. But their legwear selection is particularly amazing. Browse fleece-lined stockings and heavy knit tights at majorly discounted prices. [Photo]

Hickoree's Floor Two

Hickoree's may be a menswear shop, but their patterned scarves, knit gloves, and toasty boot socks work just as well for women. [Photo]
