Some products and items in this post have been gifted or part of previous collaborations. This does not affect my opinion, I only recommend the things that are true and tested. Thanks for your support <3
My must have list:
This is my 2022 selection of options for great Finnish winter clothing and accessories, and all you might need. I put a focus on Finnish brands, but that’s not possible for everything, and I also try to cover different budgets.
When shopping Finnish brands, you can support local businesses and ensure a certain quality, as well as good resale value if you ever want to pass the item on. I shop a lot of things used, Finnish brands and specific keywords can be a great asset in making a bargain for many of these items.

A good coat is the key to surviving Finnish winters! Here are some tips:
Lined trousers are great, but layering works just as well. A light woollen base-layer and trousers on top will keep you warm. When spending a lot of time outdoors, I recommend windproof trousers (like the Anorak ones below) or investing in proper outdoor winter sports equipment. Even layering a wool layer under seemingly summery items (like linen) can keep you warm.
Knitwear <3 a dangerous season for me because in addition to a bazillion beanies I also have an abundance of sweaters and knitwear and just while picking these options I might have ordered a bunch.
Woollen sweaters and other knitwear don’t have to be high maintenance either:
I’ve come to love my base layers, if you find the ones that work for you, they will be a game changer!
Again a reminder:
Warm feet make all the difference!
My favourite category! I have an abundance of beanies and headbands and I love each and every single one, and I’m sure this year will bring some lovely additions.
