Dressing for Winter: Six Tips for Cold Weather

If you are in Kenya, then you know we are experiencing our version of winter, which means that dressing warmly is a necessity. There is nothing more frustrating than stepping out and realizing that it is cold but you have not dressed warmly. However, dressing warmly does not mean you should overheat your body, on the contrary, it is striking a balance of your body such that you neither feel cold nor hot.  This article gives you some fashion ideas to look great but warm in this weather.

 Wear three layers.

Here, ensure that your base layer consists of silk underwear or a woollen turtleneck, and leggings that are thin and will not make you sweat. The middle layer should consist of a fleece garment that acts like insulation while the outer layer consists of a winter coat or parka to act as a barrier against wind and rain.

Keep it tight.

Tight-fitting clothing will help prevent wind chill. Switch wide-leg jeans for skinny jeans, which also help balance out oversize knit sweaters and chunky boots. Wear fleece-lined tights or leggings under skirts and dresses to keep your legs warm.

Wear long coats.

There is always an urge to wear cropped puffers or an outfit that brings the best version of yourself, however, if your aim is to stay warm, you need to keep your entire body covered. Ensure that you have at least one long coat for the coldest day

Choose the right type of down.

Down is a great material for keeping warm since it’s lightweight while also insulating. When it gets wet, however, it quickly loses its puff. Synthetic down is heavier, but it stands up to rain. For rainy weather, choose either a synthetic down or a separate rain shell to protect your down jacket.

Invest in wool.

Moisture-wicking wool keeps you warm and dries all day. If you find wool itchy, consider cashmere or merino. Merino wool is lightweight which makes it good for base wear while cashmere is soft wool that will keep you cosy and is a good option for work-friendly cardigans and comfortable beanies.

Avoid cotton.

Cotton is an amazing, breathable material, but it holds a lot of water, making it less ideal for cold weather. Save the plaid flannel shirts, corduroy pants, and college sweatshirts for fall and spring. If you have wool pants, wear those instead of denim.

With this information, choose to keep your body warm by purchasing the right type of outfit and dressing appropriately for the weather.
