How to Dress Warm for Cold Weather Days

When people think of cold weather and clothing usually it’s of wrapping themselves up inside the comfort of a huge parka or wool coat and then haphazardly adding gloves, scarves, hats, mittens or ear-muffs! However, the best way to avoid a lot of heavy exterior outfitting is by trying to wear light but comfortable clothing that can be “layered” or “doubled-up” for extra warmth. If you use clothing like this in a cold climate, you can afford to keep outer jackets or coats (to a minimum) instead of an extreme, in terms of, a huge parka or jumpsuit with heavy boots and all of the extra trimmings. Due to the fact that all of those things really can add up to double your weight and they also could make you risk falling on “black ice” or “slippery surfaces” that the naked eye always misses due to it being almost invisible.

With one tricky fall you will not enjoy your winter weather season, even if it’s one full of extra gifts and stockings around the Christmas tree! Your layering technique for cold weather should consist of wearing a lighter type of fabric that will help insulate you from over-exposure to the wind and help sweat beads to dry-off that can build up on the body. Avoid pure cottons, linens and similar fabrics because these fabrics retain moisture and will not secrete the sweat away from the body fast enough to stay dryer. Staying dry is the key priority when thinking about winter weather dressing (even if you are a fashionista or stylista) because stilettos should not be worn on ice or in snow, but carried around in a fashion tote, because boots are a much better style statement in the winter.

Making small sacrifices for the sake of fashion in colder weather is of minor circumstance when you have the knowledge to get the items you will need. Anyway, what is shopping, buying and spending all about if you cannot obtain the necessary things to keep you “in style,” safe, and comfortable? There are so many shopping outlets that will never charge at less than an affordable price for everything on your winter weather clothing list, so shop to your heart’s content to dress warm on colder days!

Let’s talk layers of clothing:

Basically, wearing something kind-of “pajama like” for the first layer of clothing is the normal way of preparing for cold blasts with clothing. However, an alternative to “pajama like” fabrics are long silky fashion bottoms and tops (maybe even a camisole), but these usually get worn-out quickly and don’t last very long due to the delicate nature of the fabric.

The second layer should be a nice thin sweater or sweatshirt, if your outerwear has a hood attached to it; avoid the sweaters or sweatshirts that have it as well, to avoid the look of a “bulge” it would make. Now, after this successful step of adding warmth in simple layering, add your coat or jacket (as the official top layer)!

Make sure to take special care in getting something for a coat or jacket that is not only warm, but rain or water-resistant due to weather conditions full of heavy rain, snow, sleet or hail.

Now, the next step is to find a nice warm scarf that is soft and beautiful to wrap around your neck on top of your jacket to keep your neck and mouth warmer while plowing through chilly wind gusts! Before going out the door and on your daily commute slip on a hat or cap- if you don’t have a snuggly hat consider wearing some ear-muffs so that your ears are covered to stay nice and warm! Last but not least, keeping your hands warm and toasty with a pair of handsome leather gloves is a great way to stay beautiful in the winter cold while being a diva too.

Having the choice of looking elegant or casual is as easy as switching your usual leather gloves with cute looking mittens! (You can buy waterproof gloves to make winter activities more enjoyable because you will be protected from the elements of moisture both inside and out). Smart winter dressing starts with being interested in using the right clothing combined with style ideas that coincide with the most intelligent (seasonal) fashion choices! Stay one step ahead of the crowd by leading the way with a style that captures winter style completeness. See how effortlessly easy it is for you to dress comfortable and affordably in winter weather!
