With the warm months quickly leaving us, the cold and harsh weather approaches – Winter is Coming! To ensure that you don’t shrivel up and turn into a frozen ice cold block, dressing adequately for winter is paramount; here comes the return of UGG boots and knitted scarves.
Here is a list of five things you need to wear in winter;
More specifically; warm women´s winter coats. This cannot be stressed enough; wearing a warm coat or parka during winter is not only a need, it’s a must. Many places around the world experience unforgiving winter weather and unless you plan on being cooped up in the house all winter, you’re going to have to get up and go outside at some point.
Winter coats may not look as fun as some would like but, with more flexibility, color and styling options, women’s winter coats have a significant upper hand to those of men; giving you infinite pairing options all while keeping you warm and trendy.
The right pairs of shoes are important and making your choice on the necessary pair depends on the weather and state of the roads. When the sun is partially out and sidewalks are clear and not too slippery, a pair of running shoes, boots with a heel or even sneakers are okay – as long as you’re not trudging through any snow or sludge.
On the other hand, when roads and sidewalks are covered in snow or, if you’re required to clear some snow, a good and reliable pair of waterproof boots that go past your knees and that have a sturdy sole are highly recommended.
At this point, I’m sure that you know and understand the extremities of winter and the importance of warm clothing. Trousers or pants are no exception and wearing a simple pair of ordinary denim jeans is not advised.
During the impossibly cold weeks, padded trousers are a good option; many people even wear tights underneath for that extra warmth. As the cold lets up, ditching the padded pants is okay but, a word of advice; keep the tights on, especially if they’re padded.
Like winter shoes, the type of trouser you wear depends on the state of the sidewalks – or where you plan to walk – and the activity you’ll be doing. For activities that don’t involve snow; regular padded pants will do. While for the activities that require you to get acquainted with the snow, a good pair of waterproof snow pant are a go-to choice.
Due to the cold weather, layering your clothing is a good way to stay even warmer and, if one of your layers gets wet, you will still have the others to keep you warm. Invest in lots and lots of sweaters and under every winter coat ensure you have on at least one sweater and, for extra measure, a thick top under it.
After wearing your essential winter clothing, it’s time to accessorize! Throw on some scarves, gloves, hats, leg and arm warmers for extra style and warmth.
