we would have to prepare for colder winters than what we were used to! I grew up in Southern California where the weather is always 70 degrees and sunny, so moving to a cold climate was somewhat of a shock to me. One of the items I had to work out quickly was a way to dress heat in winter and colder climates.
It’s always hard to stay fashionable in extreme weather, especially when most of the country has been experiencing colder-than-average temperatures because of the so-called “polar vortex.” Whether you’re used to subzero temps or get caught off guard by something below phase change, it never hurts to have a little outfit inspiration for those extra cold days, so we’ve put together four cold-weather outfits to help you out.
As you most likely grasp, layering is essential for staying warm. For example, on top, it is easy to pile on a cami or tanktop, a tee, a long-sleeved sweater or shirt, and a coat. On the bottom, try to use layer thick tights or leggings (you can even double up!) under your pants or jeans.
Always keep your hands and feet covered. This means wearing insulated shoes or winter boots, or putting on multiple pairs of socks (wool is best). And don’t forget warm gloves or mittens!
Go for lots of wintry accessories. Scarves, hats, knit headbands, earmuffs – whatever you prefer.When buying winter garments, seek for hotter materials like wool, fleece, cashmere, flannel, and down.
I am warm-blooded through and through, but I’m finally learning how to keep warm in this Northern climate and thought I’d share my winter clothing items tips and tricks!
